FARQUHAR'S BULBS FOR NATURALIZATION. 



"PHE increasing practice of planting bulbs extensively in the Rock Garden, Woodlands, Wild Garden and among Grass produces an eSect which 
is nearer to nature than any other style of gardening. Daffodils, Crocuses, Lilies, Trilliums, etc., growing amid such surroundings have 
a charm that is not to be found in the more conventional beds and borders of the cultivated garden. The following bulbous plants are es- 
pecially suitable for natural plantations. 

A full description of the following varieties will be found in the body of the cataiogue.

FARQUHAR'S GIANT DARWIN TULIPS 

THE colors range from the palest lilac to purplish black, including shades of rose, crimson, violet, brown, white, etc. The Darwin Tulips are the 
strongest race of all, their massive leaves being often four inches broad and frequently grow two to three feet in height. They bloom with the 
Columbines, three or four weeks after the Single Early Tulips. Clumps of them along the edge of shrubbery and in hardy plant borders are very effec- 
tive. They are especially beautiful when cut for vases. The figure following the name indicates the relative time of flowering. Those marked * are 
the best for forcing.

FARQUHAR'S SINGLE MAY- FLOWERING OR COTTAGE GARDEN TULIPS. 

If by Parcel Post add postage at zone rates; weight per 100, 7 lbs. 

The May-Flowering Tulips are usually in full bloom about Memorial Day and generally last well into June. Not only do they prolong the 
Tulip season, but in grandeur of form and richness of their colors surpass most of the earlier classes. They are splendid subjects for natural planta- 
tions, for clumps in herbaceous perennial borders as well as for formal beds. For cutting they are even better than the early tulips — the flowers being 
•tronger and lasting longer.

globe-shaped flowers of medium size; excel- 
lent for cutting

FARQUHAR'S SINGLE EARLY TULIPS. 

If by Parcel Post add pottage at zone rates; weight per 100, 7 lbs. 

Tulips are such universal favorites that it is scarcely necessary to dwell upon their merits. In them we possess a range of colors and 
combination of shades which no other class affords; besides, the standard sorts are so reasonable in price that they can now be planted in quan- 
tity. For bedding, pot culture and forcing for cut flowprs in Wipter tbev are I'nvnlnnblp 




Farquhar's Special Rainbow Mixture Single Early Tulips with Pansies. 

CULTURE. The cultural directions given for hyacinths on page 9 can be appUed to Tulips, except that the bulbs being smaller must not 
be planted quite so deep. Four to five inches to the bottom of the bulb is deep enough and a distance of 4 to 6 inches between the bulbs is euiS- 
cient. They may be planted in October and November before the ground freezes. For pots, six to eight bulbs in a 7-inch pan is very satisfactory. 

FARQUHAR'S SPECIAL RAINBOW MIXTURE. The varieties included in this mixture are grown separately, and are all popular 

large-flowered bedding sorts of decided merit. The colors are carefuUy proportioned, and include white, yellow, pink, scarlet, crimson and 
many beautiful shades and combinations of these colors. The sorts are selected to flower at nearly the same time and with slight variation 
in height. For massed beds and grouping our Rainbow Mixture is unsurpassed. The bulbs offered are of the largest size and finest 
quahty. 70 cents per doz. ; $5.oo per lOO; $48.00 per 1,000. 
SUPERFINE MIXTURE. Extra quahty bulbs in many beautiful and varied sorts, flowering nearly together. 60 cents per doz.; $4.00 
per 100; $36.00 per 1,000.

DOUBLE TULIPS. 



Double Tulips should be planted one sort in each bed, as grouping different varieties does not produce such a good effect. The large, double 
psBony-like blooms appear about two weeks after the Single Early Tulips and are remarkable for their beauty and lasting qualities. The figures fol- 
lowing the names indicate the average height in inches. Those marked * are the best for forcing.

BOTANICAL TULIPS and SPECIES 

Charming wild species, mostly native of Asia, these showy Tulips make splendid subjects for naturalizing in the Rock Garden or Herbaceous 
Border. In such favorable surroundings, when once established, they will increase and flower in the greatest profusion. 



Cluslana. {Lady Tulip.) A dainty dwarf species with small brightly 
colored blooms. The outer petals are brilliant cherry-red, inner petals 
creamy-white, base violet-blue. Select a warm, sunny part of the 
rockery or border and plant the bulbs about seven inches deep. Height, 
Sin. $1.00 per doz.; $7.00 per 100. 

Elchlerl. A rare and beautiful Tulip from Turkestan. The flowers are 
very large and strikingly colored fiery-crimson, and have glossy-black 
centers shaded orange-gold. Plant in good soil about six to eight inches 
deep and in groups for the best results. Height, 10 inches. $2.25 per 
doz.; $18.00 per 100. 

Grolgll. A gorgeous species with dazzling, flaming orange-scarlet flowers, 
with coal-black center blotch. Plant in a good sunny situation in the 
rockery or border and place the bulbs about six inches deep. $4.50 per 
doi.; $35.00 per 100. 



Florentlna Odorata. {Wild English Tulip.) One of the earliest of all 
flowering bulbs producing exquisite, sweetly-scented flowers on long 
graceful stems. The blooms have a dainty drooping habit and are clear, 
buttercup-yellow in color. Planted in a sheltered part of the garden, 
this charming class will flourish for years. The delicately drooping 
flowers with their delicious fragrance make splendid cut-flowers. Plant 
about six inches deep. Height, 18 in. $2.00 per doz.; $14.00 per 100. 

Kaufmanniana. A desirable dwarf variety with immense flowers creamy- 
white in color, tinged rosy-red; centre marked canary-yellow. The 
best situation for this Tulip is a semi-shady spot, preferably in the shelter 
of large rocks in the rockery, or under shrubs or trees in the border, 
where it should be massed for the most pleasing effect. Plant about six 
inches deep. Height, 6 in. $3.50 per doz.; $25.00 per 100. 



Autumn Catalogue, 1928. 



HYACINTHS. 




CULTURE OF HYACINTHS. 

Hyacinths in Pots. It is important in the pot culture of the Hyacinth to have rich, light soil — if possible, a compost of one-third decayed turf, one-third old rotten 
oow manure, and the remainder equal parts of sharp sand and leaf-mould. This compost should be made a few weeks before being used. If the bulbs are to be potted 
singly, pots five inches in diameter are the proper size, and the special Hyacinth pots which are about two inches deeper than ordinary pots, are preferable. For drain- 
age, cover the hole in the pot with a piece of broken pot, and over this place a layer of moss. Break off any offsets which appear at the base of the bulbs, and in potting 
place each bulb so that its top shall be half an inch below the surface of the soil and an inch below the rim of the pot. The soil should be of usual natural moisture, and 
should be pressed moderately firm. The filled pots may be placed in a cold frame where there is protection from frost, and well watered. An excellent plan is to place 
them on a bed of moist, sifted coal ashes, covering the pots to a depth of six inches with the same material. When well rooted, which will be in about six weeks, the bulbs 
may be brought indoors and forced. For the first two or three weeks they should be kept in a temperature not exceeding 50 degrees. Success in forcing depends much on 
their having strong roots before being brought to the light. The top grows rapidly, and unless the roots are started much in advance they are unable to nourish the plant, 
and failure results. Hyacinths for early use may be potted in September or October; late planting is not advisable, as the bulbs deteriorate; when desired fcr late use, it is 
better to pot them in October and keep them in a cold frame above freezing until it is desired to force them into bloom. 

To obtain dwarf foliage and fine flower spikes. Hyacinths when being forced should have plenty of manure-water, fresh air, and should be kept very near the glass. 
The blooms last much longer if shaded from the sun. 

Hyacinths in the Open Garden. The ground should be dug to a depth of at least fifteen inches, and enriched with plenty of well-rotted cow manure. Hya- 
cinths may be planted from September until Winter sets in; although if the highest success is sought they should be in the ground by the end of October. Bulbs planted 
early develop roots in the autumn, and these, if protected from injury by freezing and thawing alternately during the Winter, enable the bulbs to produce much larger 
flower spikes than if the roots are not developed until Spring. Frost reaching the bulbs raises them up, thus detaching them from their roots. Protection may be afforded 
by covering the beds with straw or leaves to a depth of six or eight inches, which should be removed early in the Spring. Hyacinths should be set six inches below the sur- 
face of the ground and six inches apart. 

FARQUHAR'S SELECTED FORCING HYACINTHS. 

// hy Parcel Post add postage at zone rates; weight per doc, 2 lbs. 

This highly decorative class of Hyacinths is of unsurpassed excellence for producing fine color effects. Being of distinct and decided shades, 
of uniform height, and blooming at the same time, they are very desirable for forcing singly in pots or grouped in bulb pans. They are equally effec- 
tive for outdoor bedding, producing handsome, large spikes.

These are well developed, sound flowering bulbs, superior in size and strength to the Mixed Hyacinth usually offered. They are specially adapted 
for groups in borders and informal beds, where they will give a brilliant display of very handsome flowers and on account of their low price are also 
extensively forced for Winter-blooming and cutting. Care is exercised to include only sorts which bloom at the same time and are of nearly uniform 
height.

CROCUSES. 



The bulba should be set two inches deep and should be planted in October or early in November to insure success. They are very effective 
when combined with Daffodils, and other Spring flowers. For a natural effect they can be scattered in handfuls and planted where they lie. Cro- 
cuses may also be grown indoors either in pots or bulb pans in loam or in dishes filled with wet moss in which the bulbs are set closely, half an inch 
below the surface.

Crocuses in the Rock Garden. 

WILD CROCUSES and CROCUS^SPECIES. 

These charming flowers may be divided into two classes, Spring-blooming and 
Autumn-blooming. They are equally valuable for rock gardens or borders. 

AUTUMN^BLOOMING SPECIES. 

The following varieties make a welcome addition to the few late-flowering plants 
available for the border or rock garden. The brightly colored blooms appear in 
October followed in the Spring by the foliage. It is well to plant these bulbs as soon 
as possible after arrival from Holland. Set bulbs about 2 inches deep. 
Satlvus. (Saffron Crocus). Showy blooms of purplish-lilac with a deep pencilling 

of violet ornamented by the rich orange stigmas. Will make a brilliant showing 

after a season or two, in which to become established. 60 cts. per doz.; $4.00 per 

100. 
Speclosus. Bright violet-blue handsomely feathered; orange anthers and pur« 

yellow throat. Decidedly attractive in the rockery or border. 75 cts. per doz.; 

$5.00 per 100; $48.00 per 1000. 
Zonatus. Rosy-lilac with bright yellow center and orange zone, a color combination 

of unrivalled beauty. Plant bulbs in groups in a favored spot of the garden and the 

flowers will appear in a surprisingly short time. 75 cts. per doz.; $6.00 per 100; 

$45.00 per 1000. 

SPRING^BLOOMING SPECIES. 

These have flowers a trifle smaller than the Dutch varieties, but are desirable for 
naturalizing in Rock Gardens and Borders. If given a good sutiny place they will 
bloom very often before the snow is gone. Plant the bulbs about two inches deep. 
Suslanus. (Cloth of Gold) Deep golden-yellow with rich brown markings on outer 

petals. Given a suitable sunny situation this bulb will bloom for years with littl* 

or no care. 60 cts. per doz.; $4.00 per 100. 
Thommasinianus. A charming, distinct species with a slender deep throat. The 

color varies from delicate mauve to deep purple in charming variety. The bulba 

should be planted in a warm exposure where they will increase rapidly. 60 cte. 

per doz.; $4.00 per 100.

MISCELLANEOUS BULBS. 

FKEESIAS. 



The gracefully branched, fragrant flowers are of long duration, and being freely 
produced are profitable for commercial purposes, and satisfactory to amateurs. 
If planted early they may be had in bloom by Christmas. Plant eight or ten bulbs 
in a six-inch bulb pan, covering them one insh. The soil best suited is a mixture 
of rich loam, leaf-mold or humus and sharp sand. For a succession of blooms, 
bulbs may be potted from August to November. It is essential that root-growth 
be encouraged by placing the potted bulbs in a cool temperature for several weeks, 
when they may be brought to bloom in a gentle bottom heat.

LILIES. 



Lilies are indispensable for planting in borders, formal gardens or amongst shrubbery. 

LILIUM REGALE. {The Regal Uly.) 

If by Parcel Post add postage at zone rates; weight per dozen, 7 lbs. 

This grand new species is acknowledged to be the finest lily in cultivation. The 
flowers are white, slightly suffused with pink, with a beautiful shade of canary- 
yellow at the centre of the trumpet. It is delightfully fragrant, reminding one 
of the Jasmine and lacking the heavy oppressive odor of most lilies. In this section 
it blooms early in July. It is absolutely hardy and when established increases 
rapidly. Plant the bulbs 5 or 6 inches deep, and after the ground is frozen, cover 
over with leaves or other litter to prevent alternate freezing and thawing. (Octo- 
ber and November delivery.) Large Bulbs, .75 cts. each; $7.50 per doz.; $60.00 
per 100. 

LILIUM CANDIDUM. (The Madonna Lily.)

This beautiful lily of the purest satiny-white, borne majestically on tall straight 
stems, is one of the first of all to bloom, the flowers opening in June just at the time 
when the hardy blue Larkspur is at its best. The two may be interplanted, pro- 
ducing a contrast in blue and white of unrivalled beauty. Plantings in the hardy 
border and amongst shrubbery is equally effective. The bulbs should be set in a 
handful of sand, slightly tilted on their sides, to ensure perfect drainage. Set them 
about 5 or 6 inches deep, and protect during winter with a mulch of leaves and 
other coarse litter. The bulbs we offer are grown for us in France and are the large 
variety, producing pure white, deliciously fragrant flowers. {September and Octo-

// by Parcel Post add postage at zone rates; weight per dozen bulbs, 10 lbs. 

The bulbs may be potted from August onward in a compost of equal 
parts turfy loam, leaf mold, rotted cow manure and sand. It is best 
to start them in pots not exceeding twice their own diameter, in which 
they may remain until started eight inches or more. They should be 
transferred then to larger pots in which to bloom, exercising great care 
not to disturb the roots or break away the soil from about them, and 
setting them considerably deeper in the larger pots. This method pre- 
vents the soil from becoming sour, and enables the roots forming at the 
base of the stem to become feeders, greatly increasing the number and 
size of the blossoms.

FARQUHAR'S P/EONIES. 

{The figure following the name indicates relative time of flowering) 




SEPTEMBER is the best month in which to plant Pseonies, as they then 
make a root growth before Winte.' and bloom next Spring. They 
require a good rich, deep soil and an abundant supply of water during 
the growing season. When enriching the ground the use of too much 
fresh manure near the roots should be avoided. The roots should be 
planted so that the eyes will be 2 to 3 inches below the surface. Too deep 
planting is a frequent cause for shy flowering.

GERMAN IRISES. ins Germamca. (Fleur de Lis.) 
Farquhar's Fleur de Lis were awarded a silver medal by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. 




German Irises thrive in a well drained and sunny situation and the finest blooms are obtained from estabhshed clumps, consequently 
when planted they should remain undisturbed for at least five or six years. The plants may be given a Ught covering of leaves or salt hay

In the descriptions (S) is used to signify standards or the erect petals; (F) falls or the drooping petals.

HARDY PERENNIAL PLANTS. 



Varieties suitable for autumn planting. Refer to our Garden Annual for complete list of 

Perennial Plants. 

'T"HE favorites of the old-time gardens are coming to the front, and deservedly so. No feature of the garden can be more satisfactory than 
a well-arranged Hardy Plant border, producing from April to November a continuous succession of charming flowers, much more interest- 
ing than the usual greenhouse assortment, and equally valuable for garden embellishment and cutting purposes. The Hardy Plants have 
the advantage of greater permanency, requiring only cultivation, enriching, a slight mulch during Winter, and occasional checking of the more 
robust growers to keep the plantation in good condition for years. 

We limit the present list to varieties which admit of being planted at this season and which have been found generally hardy and desirable for 
the severe climate of New England. 

Si7igle plants of Perennials will be furnished at the following rates: Plants at $2.20 and $2.40 for 10 will be 30 Cts. each; plants at $2.50 
and $3.00 for 10 will be 35 cts. each; plants at $3.50 for 10 will be 40 cts. each; plants at $4.00 for 10 will be 45 cts. each; plants at $4.50

POT^GROWN STRAWBERRY PLANTS 




Cultural Directions. The Strawberry is easily cultivated: abundant 
crops can be obtained from a variety of soils, differing widely in character, 
from a light sand to a heavy clay. The best soil is a deep sandy loam, but 
any soil suited to the growth of ordinary field or garden crops may be 
trusted to successfully grow the Strawberry. The soil should be broken 
up and pulverized by spade-trenching or subsoil-plowing, enriching with 
good stable manure to a depth of fully two feet, the quantity of manure 
to be determined by the condition of the soil. The plants may be set in 

beds of three rows one foot apart and 
one foot distant in the rows, with a 
space of two and a half feet between 
the outside rows of adjoining beds left 
for a pathway. They may also be 
planted in single rows three feet apart 
and one foot apart in the rows. 



FARQUHAR'S "SELECT" VARIETIES OF STRAWBERRIES. 



These are strong pot-grown plants, which can be safely shipped to any reasonable distance. 
All varieties offered are perfect flowering, needing no fertilization by another variety. 



If planted early, they will produce a large crop of fruit next year.

FakquhaPv's Special Lawn Grass Mixtures 



CHARGES PREPAID WHEN CASH ACCOMPANIES ORDER 




FARQUHAR'S "EVERGREEN" LAWN GRASS 

A mixture of the finest American and European grasses adapted to lawn-making. The formula for this mixture is the result of a life-time 
of practical experience in making and maintaining lawns. Neither pains nor expense are spared in obtaining grasses of high vitality and purity. It 
is our constant aim to make Farquhar's Evergreen Lawn Grass the best, purest and most permanent Lawn Grass sold. For the formation of new 
lawns sow not less than 100 lbs. per acre. One pound will sow a plot 20 x 20 feet or 400 square feet. For renovating existing turf, use one-half 
this quantity. Price per lb., 60 cts.; 5 lbs,, $2.90; 10 lbs., $5.75; 100 lbs., $55.00; Bushel of 25 lbs., $13.75. 


FARQUHAR'S "BOSTON PARKS" LAWN SEED 

This formula has been used for many years in the Boston Park Department and in the Metropolitan Parks of Massachusetts. It is un- 
questionably one of the best mixtures for parks or where a free-growing, hardy-wearing turf is desired. Sow not less than 80 lbs. per acre and in 
many cases 100 lbs. will be an advantage. Price, 65 cents per lb.; 10 lbs., $6.25; 100 lbs. $60.00. 25 lbs. and upwards at the 100-lb. rate. 


FARQUHAR'S "SHADY PLACE" MIXTURE 

This is a mixture of extra fine Grasses adapted for growing in the 
shade and under trees. We recommend the use of this mixture wherever 
other grasses on account of shade have failed to make a close sward. 
Sow at rate of one pound to 300 sq. ft. Price per lb., 60 cts.; 5 lbs., 
$2.90; 10 lbs., $5.75; 100 lbs., $55.00. 


FARQUHAR'S "FAIRGREEN" MIXTURE 

This is composed mainly of perennial native Grasses and two very 
important European Grasses which have proven of great value for Fair- 
Green use. They are all of dwarf, spreading growth, forming a close vel- 
vety surface which improves from year to year if given proper care. It 
contains no clover, which is objectionable on account of making the sur- 
face slippery. Use about 150 lbs. to the acre. Price per lb., 65 CtS.; 
100 lbs., $60.00; 1000 lbs., $550.00. 


FARQUHAR'S "TERRACE" MIXTURE 

A mixture of strong, deep-rooted Grasses for banks or terraces. Al- 
though the Grasses are strong and deep-rooted, they will produce a fine 
green velvety surface, and also prevent washing away during heavy rains. 
Use one povmd to each 300 sq. ft. Price per lb., 60 cts.; 10 lbs., 
$5.75; 100 lbs., $55.00. 


FARQUHAR'S "PUTTING-GREEN" MIXTURE 

The hardiest and finest low-growing Grasses are contained in this 
Mixture. It produces a beautiful and lasting green turf calculated to 
withstand hard tear and wear. Sow one pound to each 200 sq. ft., 75 
to 100 lbs. for the average green. Price per lb., 90 cts.; 10 lbs., $8.50; 
100 lbs., $80.00. 


FARQUHAR'S "ATHLETIC FIELD" MIXTURE 

A special mixture of grasses producing a close, matted turf of great 
resiliency. Many leading athletic fields in New England are using this 
mixture. Sow at rate of 125 to 150 lbs. per acre. Price per lb., 70 cts.; 
5 lbs., $3.40; 10 lbs., $6.50; 100 lbs., $60.00. 


FARQUHAR'S "TENNIS-COURT" MIXTURE 

A mixture of fine Grasses, consisting of those varieties which are 
adapted to produce a close elastic turf. Use at rate of one pound to 
200 sq. ft. Price per lb., 90 cts.; 10 lbs., $8.50; 100 lbs., $80.00. 


FARQUHAR'S LAWN FERTILIZER 

A strictly high grade fertilizer, highly concentrated, and containing all the elements needed for the perfect development of the lawn. The use 
of Farquhar's Lawn Fertilizer for top-dressing does away with the practice of covering the lawn with stable manure. It should be sown broad- 
cast in the Spring or Fall, and if possible should be applied in dull weather but if used dming warm weather, soak down with a hose after applying. 
A 10-lb. package is sufficient for a space 15 x 20 feet; 800 to 1000 lbs. per acre. Price per ton, $62.00; 100 lbs., $4.00; 50 lbs., $2.25; 25 lbs., 
$1.35; 10 lbs., 85 cents.

R. &. J. FARQUHAR COMPANY, BOSTON. 



FARM AND FIELD GRASSES, 

Prices Subject to Market Fluctuations. 



Chewing's New Zealand Fescue. A splendid grass of creeping habit; 
forming a close and lasting turf. It thrives on light, sandy soils and is 
a great drought resister, but it does equally well on heavy land, also 
shady places. Should be included in all lawn mixtures. (24 lbs. per 
bushel.) Per lb., 65 cts.; 100 lbs., $60.00. 

Crested Dog's Tail. {Cynosurus cristatus.) A perennial valued for its 
dwarf habit and its hardiness. Sow two bushels per acre. (30 lbs. per 
bushel.) Per lb., 85 cts.; 100 lbs., S80.00. 

Kentucky Blue. {Poa pratensis.) Known as June Grass. A perennial 
especially adapted to dry limestone soils, but will thrive on any good 
ground which is not too wet. Very nutritious, hardy and early. Sow 
three bushels per acre if alone. (14 lbs. per bushel.) Per lb., 50 cts.; 
100 lbs., S45.00. 

Meadow Fescue. {Festuca pratensis.) A perennial which succeeds best 
on rich moist loams. A heavy yielder on soils perfectly adapted to it, 
and also an excellent pasture Grass. Sow two and a half bushels per 
acre. (15 lbs. per bushel.) Per lb., 40 cts.; 100 lbs., $35.00. 

Orchard Grass. {Dactylis glomerata.) A deep-rooted perennial, grow- 
ing in tufts. A strong, vigorous grower, which succeeds best on rich 
lands or clayey soils. Should be cut for hay at the time of first flower- 
ing. Sow three bushels per acre if alone. (14 lbs. per bushel.) Per lb., 
35 cts.; 100 lbs., $32.00. 

Perennial Rye Grass. {LoUum perenne.) A perennial forming large and 
broad tufts. Grows best on stiff, wet soils, and on heavy clays or marshy 
lands where the_ soil is good, it is one of the best pasture Grasses. In 
such situations it will last five to seven years, but on dry upland soils 
it is short-lived. (24 lbs. per bushel.) Finest seed, our direct importa- 
tion. Per lb., 30 cts.; 100 lbs., $25.00. 

Red or Creeping Fescue. (Festuca rubra.) A splendid grass for light sandy 
soils. Extreme drought resister. Valuable in seeding banks and ex- 
posed locations, binding drifting sands, and as la'UTi grass for shady spots. 
Forms a very close, durable turf, suitable for putting greens. (24 lbs. per 
bushel.) Per lb., 65 cts.; 100 lbs., $60.00. 



Red Top. {Agrostis vulgaris.) A good permanent grass, which grows 
naturally in cold wet soils. It should be grown in cultivation in similar 
situations. A perennial with long creeping stems and underground 
runners; one of the best bottom grasses, bearing large numbers of fine 
root leaves, making it invaluable for sowing with erect tufted Grasses, 
such as Orchard and Timothy, filling in between the clumps and producing 
a continuous turf. Sow four bushels per acre if alone. (10 lbs. per bushel.) 
Per lb., 30 cts.; 10 lbs., $2.75; 100 lbs., $25.00. 

Red Top. Clean Seed. Chaff and weeds sifted out; pure fancy seed. 
We recommend this to all who desire the best results, as its absolute 
purity and excellence insure satisfaction for farm, park or lawn. Excel- 
lent for restoring worn-out swards. (36 lbs. per bushel.) Per lb., 
40 cts.; 100 lbs., S36.00. 

Sweet Vernal, True Perennial. Many seedsmen substitute the annual 
variety for tliis invaluable Grass, as the seed for both is similar. Inval- 
uable in lawns on account of its very early growth and fragrant odor, 
which it imparts to the other grasses in drying. Remains green very, 
late. Hardy and permanent. (7 lbs. per bushel. ) Per lb., $1.50. 

Tall Oat Grass. {Avena elatior.) A perennial which grows in loose tufts 
and throws up an abimdance of leaves and tall stalks. Succeeds best 
on rich upland soils, and when once established is a great drought resister. 
Early. Makes its heaviest growth the second year. (14 lbs. per bushel.) 
Per lb., 40 cts.; 100 lbs., $35.00. 

Timothy or Herds Grass. (Pkleum pratense.) This Grass is usually con- 
sidered and treated as a short-lived perennial, and hence is the best grass 
to grow in a short rotation. It succeeds best, on moist loams and clays 
naturally rich in humus or on those which have been heavily manured. 
It grows in loose tufts, with few short leaves, so that Red Top or Red 
Clover should be sown with it to furnish heavy bottom growth of leaves. 
Sow one bushel per acre if alone. (45 lbs. per bushel.) Per lb., 14 cts.; 
per 100 lbs. $12.00. 

Wood Meadow. (Poa nemoralis.) 

Well adapted for growing under trees and in shaded situations. Dwarf 
and fine-growing. Sow two and a half bushels per acre. (14 lbs. per 
bushel.) Per lb., 85 ets. 



CLOVERS. 



Red Medium. (Trifolium pratense.) The best clover for all practical 
purposes. Succeeds best on rich, warm loams, containing humus. Lime 
and potash are essential for its best development. A biennial, but by 
close pasturage may be made to last several years. Per lb., 50 cts.; 100 
lbs., $45.00. 

Mammoth or Large Red Northern. (Trifolium pratense.) On rich, loamy 
soil this variety grows nearly twice as large as the Medium Red Clover 
and is earlier to start a Spring growth. Per lb., 50 cts.; 100 lbs., $45.00. 

Alsike or Swedish. (Trifolium hybridum.) This Clover will thrive where 
the soil is quite wet, and will even stand flooding without being killed. 
Productive and sweet and extremely valuable for both pasturage or soil- 
ing. The flowers afford a fine pasturage for bees. Per lb., 40 cts.; 100 
lbs., $35.00. 



White Clover. (Trifolium repens.) This Clover should always be sown 
on permanent or temporary pastures. Will grow on any soil, but es- 
pecially adapted to low meadows, where the surface soil is mellow and 
rich. Often used in lawn-grass mixtures, and for patching bare spots in 
the lawn. Per lb., 70 cts.; 10 lbs., $6.50. 

Alfalfa or Lucerne. (Medicago satita.) The chief merit of Alfalfa is the 

fact that it can be cut three or four times in a season. Per lb., 45 cts.; 
100 lbs., $38.00. 

Grimm Alfalfa. This is considered by many to be hardiest and most pro- 
ductive. Sow 20 lbs. per acre. Lb., 60 cts. ; 10 lbs., $5.75 ; 100 lbs., $55.00. 



FIELD SEEDS. 



Sand Vetch, or Hairy Vetch. (Vicia villosa.) Should be sown at the rate 
of from four to six pecks per acre, broadcast or in drills, from August 15 
to October 1, and with it as a supporting crop to raise the vines up off the 
ground there should be planted from two to four pecks of Winter Wheat, 
Oats or Rye. It should be cut while the Vetch is in full bloom. It may 
be planted in Spring in order to supply an early green crop for soiling 
purposes, or in midsummer for late Autumn forage. Peck, $3.75; bush., 
(60 lbs.) $14.00. 



Rye, Rosen Winter. The time for sowing is from the middle of August 
to the last of September. Prepare the ground as for Wheat and sow broad- 
cast, or with a drill at the rate of one and one-half bushels per acre. This 
has no equal as a crop to be used for late Fall and early Spring pasture, 
and is one of the best to turn under for green manure. (56 lbs. per bushel.) 

Per bush., $3.50; 10 bush., $32.00. 

Winter Wheat. (60 lbs. per bushel.) (Price on application.)
