THERE is nothing I enjoy more than visiting with someone about. Fruit, Garden and Home.

THERE is nothing I enjoy more than visiting with someone about Fruit, Garden and Home. So this afternoon I went down the hall to Sherlock's office. He is just as enthusiastic as the rest of us, and I wish every reader of Fruit, Garden and Home could visit him in his office and go over his file of material with him as I have just done.

Homes of Famous Americans

POETS are, and commonly have been, alone and apart from the rest of mankind. The world has had little time for their flights of fancy, or even for their nuggets of philosophy... until too late. It is a material world, a world which believes or values little that it cannot see, or feel, or touch; being a material world, it cannot get over the idea that men who do not work with their hands do not work at all.

Have Flowers from Frost to Frost

IF you begin with pansies in the spring and continue until the hardy chrysanthemums bloom in the late autumn, you can have flowers practically from frost to frost. And that is as it should be. The well-ordered garden is one in which color is to be found on any day when one may feel inclined to walk therein.

The Care and Culture of the Gladiolus

SO great is the improvement of the modern gladiolus and so important its future that anyone not familiar with its rapid development in recent years cannot realize its value. Varieties and forms considered beautiful not many years ago are today with few exceptions considered commonplace compared with hundreds of magnificent newer kinds. It is now easily the king of the summer flower garden and its friends, which are legion, can rest assured that many grandly beautiful new kinds from the hands of the skillful hybridist are yet in store for the future.

The variations in color, design and purpose now available are, indeed, innumerable; ranging all the way from the simplest sort of American Colonial and European peasant styles to the delicately-elaborate period forms of France, Spain and Italy.

Getting a Start in February

FEBRUARY is the banner month as to the appearance of that most fascinating literature-- the seed catalog. To the garden lover there is nothing more alluring; and during many of the long February evenings you may find him-- and his wife-- poring over the various compendiums issued by different florists, their covers and contents picturing hues, shapes, and sorts of vegetables and flowers that may grow in that horticultural paradise, the seed nursery, but which we certainly cannot expect to emulate in the home garden.
