Trees for problem locations

If you've had trouble getting a tree to grow well, chances are you have chosen the wrong kind for your soil or location. Since a tree represents a sizable outlay in money and care, it will pay you to cultivate the type that's best suited to the spot you have in mind.

By analyzing your needs, you can avoid the disappointment of buying a tree that just doesn't measure up to the job-- and the expense of having it removed and replaced.

You can buy started plants of many flowers nowadays, but zinnias are seldom available-- because they don't transplant too well. But you don't need them started for you-- they're so easy to grow from seed. Choose the kinds you like and plant when soil gets warm to stay-- and as late as mid-July.
