THOMAS J. GREY COMPANY’S BULB CATALOGUE, FALL, 1921 1 

HYACINTHS 

Culture in Pots or Pans. These may be planted any time from September to November, though early 
planting as a rule gives the best results. Firm, heavy bulbs should be selected, and, if to be planted singly, use a 
5-inch pot or four bulbs of one variety to an 8-inch seed pan. A piece of broken pot placed over the hole and 1 or 
2 inches of Sphagnum Moss placed on this, make excellent drainage. A light, rich soil is essential; one made up 
of one-third rotted cow manure, one-third rotted sod, and the balance of leafmold and sharp sand, is excellent. 
When planting, break off all offsets, if any, at the base of. the bulb, and have the top of the bulb just below the 
soil, and the soil about an inch below the top of the pot; give a good watering, put in a cool place and cover with 
5 or 6 inches of sand or sifted coal ashes; this prevents the bulbs from rising while they are making roots and holds 
the moisture. After eight weeks the roots should be strong enough to allow them to be brought to the light and 
into the room where they are to bloom. 

Culture in the Open Garden. Bulbs may be planted from September until the ground closes, although 
the best results will be obtained if planted before the end of October. Plant 6 inches deep and 6 inches apart, in 
soil which has been dug at least 12 inches deep and well enriched with well-rotted cow manure. Before the ground 
freezes deep enough to reach the bulbs, cover with leaves or other good litter, 6 to 8 inches deep, to protect the 
bulbs from freezing and thawing through the Winter, thus being assured of larger and stronger spikes of bloom. 
The covering should be removed early in the Spring. 


SPECIAL NAMED BEDDING AND FORCING HYACINTHS 

These are large, solid bulbs of distinct and decided shades, producing large spikes of flowers, and all blooming 
at the same time, which makes them of great value for bedding out, as one can obtain the exact color effect desired. 
They are also desirable for forcing in pots or pans.

TULIPS 


Universal favorites, and the most popular and attractive flowers for early Spring display in the garden or for 
Winter blooming in the house or conservatory. They are perfectly hardy and of easiest culture in any good gar¬ 
den soil, seldom failing to give the greatest satisfaction. When massed in beds or large clumps, the best effect 
is obtained. Double and Single sorts, when planted together in clumps among the shrubs or perennials, give a 
longer season of bloom than if either were planted alone. For best effect, when planted in small clumps, the 
bulbs should be set 4 inches deep and 4 inches apart, but in large beds or borders a distance of 5 or 6 inches be¬ 
tween the bulbs can be allowed.

finest large-flowering named sorts, selected to bloom 
at about the same time and to grow about the same 
height. This mixture is unsurpassed for mixed beds 
and borders. Doz. 70c., 100 $4.00, 1000 $38.00. 

SUPERFINE MIXTURE. A splendid mixture con¬ 
taining all colors, and composed of an unusually large 
number of varieties which flower nearly together. 
Doz. 40c., 100 $3.25, 1000 $28.00. 


NAMED DOUBLE TULIPS 

These are useful for bedding and forcing; the large, Peony-like blossoms are highly ornamental, coming into 
bloom about a week or more after the single early sorts, and lasting considerably longer in flower. They make 
the best display, and the effect is better when planted one variety in a bed or clump. The letter after the name 
indicates the time of blooming; those marked A bloom together, followed in about a week by B, and C, the latest. 

If by Parcel Post, add 'postage at zone rates. Weight 1 lb. per doz., 7 lbs. per 100.

NARCISSI, or DAFFODILS 

Among the most beautiful and fragrant of our hardy Spring flowering bulbs the Narcissi enjoy great popularity

izing among the grass, planting among the shrubbery, on the borders of ponds and streams, and in formal beds. 
For house or greenhouse culture they are equally desirable, planted in pots or bulb pans, several bulbs of one variety 
in each, and treated as recommended for Hyacinths. 

Selected bulbs only are offered and mostly Double Nosed.

or situation. When.planted, in connection with Chionodoxa, Snowdrops or Scilla they are very effective. They 
also may be grown indoors in bulb pans, etc., as recommended for Hyacinths. Best results outside are ob¬ 
tained from early planting.

LILIES FOR FORCING 


If by Parcel Post, add postage at zone rates. Weight, 3 lbs. per doz. 

Bulbs should be potted in a rich soil, using 33^- to 6-inch pots, according to the size of the bulb and the pots 
plunged m a coldframe, or kept in a cool place, to get a strong root-growth. When well rooted and started 6 or 8 
inches they should be shifted into larger pots to bloom, setting the bulb considerably deeper. A suitable compost 
is equal parts of turfy loam, leafmold, rotted cow manure and sand. Bulbs should be potted as soon as received.

large flowered, pure white, thick-petaled variety and

■ LILIES FOR OPEN GROUND 

With few exceptions they prefer a lights well-drained, loamy soil and partial shade. Deep planting is recom¬ 
mended, from 6 to 12 or more inches, according to variety, and a covering of leaves or some litter to prevent the 
frost reaching the bulbs, as it is absolutely necessary for their success that the bulb be protected from freezing and 
thawing. Some varieties are ready in August, and others not before October or November, and to insure the 
planting of the late arrivals the place should be covered to keep the frost out.

Select List of Hardy Perennial Plants 


We would recommend those who ha Ye never undertaken the culture of hardy plants to commence with a few va¬ 
rieties most easily grown, and gradually increase their collections from season to season, and, our word for it, it will lead 
to a confession that there is nothing in the way of bedding-out or ribbon gardening which can compare in any way to 
the beauty and refined charm of this class of plants. We can furnish a good selection of hardy plants, which may be 
expected to give successional bloom throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall months, and, if the choice is left to us, 
will take special care to select such varieties as afford the most satisfactory results. 

Our connections with the best and leading nurseries at home and abroad put us in a position to furnish 
the very best of all hardy nursery stock. We also furnish estimates on the laying out, planting and im¬ 
provement of private estates, and furnish experienced gardeners to carry out the work. We shall be pleased 
to correspond with those contemplating improvements or planting hardy stock of any sort.

POT-GROWN STRAWBERRY PLANTS 


The Strawberry will grow in any good garden soil where the ground has been thoroughly prepared. For 
family use we recommend planting them in double rows, 1 foot apart each way and 3 feet between the double 
rows. Our pot-grown Strawberry plants are well-rooted, healthy plants, ready for shipment in August, and by 
setting them any time during August and September, a fine crop of fruit may be had the next season. The follow¬ 
ing sorts have proved the most satisfactory for growing in this locality. 

$6.00 per 100, $50.00 per 1000; 50 at 100 rate, 500 at 1000 rate. 



Abington. Strong grower and great yielder. 

Bright red berries, large, firm and fine 
flavor. Early to medium. 

Barrymore. Awarded silver medal and three 
first premiums by the Massachusetts Horti¬ 
cultural Society, in 1908. A great berry 
for all purposes. Large, size, rich, dark, 
glossy crimson color; conical shape; flesh 
red and quality excellent. Medium.

son, solid; excellent quality and fine flavor.

cellent flavor and very early.

firm and ranks with the best in flavor. 

Medium to late.

fruit clear to the end of the season, of a 
rich crimson color.

flavor. One of the most popular sorts 
Medium.

THREE NEW VARIETIES 

Raised from seed by the late S. D. Warren of Weston, 

and claimed by him to be as near rust-proof as possible, 

with fruit far superior to the older sorts. 

Arabine. Extra early, very large, bright red of high 
quality, very robust grower and heavy cropper. 

Roosevelt. A vigorous midseason variety, larger than 
Marshall, of most excellent quality and color. A 
superior sort. 

Hiawatha. This new late sort ripens a few days ahead 
of the Commonwealth, which it surpasses in size, 
color and flavor. It succeeds where others fail. 


EVERBEARING STRAWBERRIES 
Progressive. Considered one of the best perpetual- 
bearing Strawberries. The fruit is rich and sweet, 
a deep red inside and out; of good medium size and 
quite firm.

LAWNS 

The following simple directions may be found useful to those who are not familiar with lawn making: 

The soil should be of good depth, moderately rich, and in many cases the land should be carefully drained. 
Grading should be done and the soil thoroughly pulverized by careful harrowing and raking. Some good fertilizer-— 
pure ground bone, wood ashes or a specially prepared lawn fertilizer—should be used. After spreading the ferti¬ 
lizer, the surface should be carefully raked and rolled. The rolling often develops uneven spots which should be 
leveled before the seed is sown. After sowing, the ground should again be lightly raked and rolled. 

The selection of seed is important. Use only such mixtures as are free from weed seeds, and such as will 
produce a firm, strong turf and a fine growth. A liberal quantity is necessary to secure good results (not less than 
64 lbs. per acre). The best time to make a lawn is from the middle of August through September. If seed is 
sown at this season, the grass will become strong enough to withstand the Winter, and a good lawn is assured 
the following season. If seed cannot be sown at this time, it should be sown as early as possible in the Spring.
