BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS

BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS will come somewhat as a surprise to the readers of Fruit, Garden and Home, but I am sure as a pleasant surprise. It is the same publication and the features you have told us you enjoyed so much will be continued-- no change except in the name-- and that to better express in our name the real purpose behind the publication.

Frank Riggs' Iris Garden

ABOUT five years ago, when Frank Riggs started his iris patch, the development and culture of the iris in this country was but in its infancy. Since then this easiest-of-all-to-cultivate flower (formerly known as the "flag") has become a garden favorite.

A Byzantine House and How It Was Created

IF you were planning to build a house, would you take your ideas of the architectural style of the structure from a period of the Middle Ages? Would you be willing to undergo the throes of thirty years' research in dusty volumes, devoted to the period in question, and would you be willing to delve among the collections of antique junk shops in the dingy quarters of an American city of old world atmosphere in order to find just the pattern of medallion, railing, or whatnot, required to make your house tally with the historical models?

Lawn Enemies in Summer

ALTHO as yet insects and bugs and "crawlers" which attack plant life in general have not been found to direct their forces against green grass to any extent, there is many a foe to the "lawn beautiful."

Homes of Famous Americans

AT Elmwood I was more than thrilled at the great privacy of the place. Altho it is located on a corner where two streets intersect in the old town of Cambridge-- busy streets, too-- once inside the gate you are lifted bodily out of the hurried affairs of men, and are transported to the leisurely retreat of one of our greatest poets and nature lovers.

Landscape Planning Service

THE house illustrated on the opposite page offers countless different solutions for its placement on the lot and the arrangement of the ground about it. The plan here presented shows a rather intensive use of the ground for lawns, gardens and other out-of-door features while still giving excellent exposures for light and air to the principal rooms of the house.

GARDEN REMINDERS

AUGUST is the best time for planting evergreens in most localities. They require plenty of moisture so it is advisable to saturate the ground thoroly when planting. If the burlap covering is left on the roots it will prevent them from becoming injured. This covering will soon decay.
