Its rnanner of discovery, origination and land of birth. Nature’s bountiful gift to a 
harried mankind.

and reflects only peace, harmony and romance. Through the ages they have inspired 
poems, songs, ballads and remain as untainted as the day they first attracted man’s 
attention.

A Garden without 
Chrysanthemums

Purchasers of “Nemapeg” chrysanthemums list the following reasons why they choose these plants; 

1. They are recognized as the outstanding hardy outdoor exhibition chrysanthemums of the day. 

2. They have won garden prizes and contests for the planter.

These Chrysanthemums will form a bush having 
anywhere from 10 to 20 stalks. They require the

you will have. You can pinch the tops of the stalks 
of this Chrysanthemum and thereby increase the 
size of the plants and number of blooms. Makes a 
wonderful perennial garden or border plant and will 
furnish your table with adequate cut flowers. We

Culture of Exhibition “ ’Mums”' 

First, good soil. Add plenty of manure and 
fertilizer to your bed. Feed at least once a 
month after plants are established to get best 
results. Set plants 10 inches apart both ways. 
These plants will be single-stemmed stock when 
shipped to you in the spring. If you want to 
grow more than one flower on the plant, pinch 
the top out after the plant has become estab¬ 
lished. This will make it branch out. Now you 
can s;lect two or three stems, but no more than 
three if you want to get large flowers. Tie or 
stake these to keep the wind from whipping 
them around. All side growth that appears on 
these stems should be pinched off so that each 
of the two or three stems will have no side 
shoots. By the time the buds are set in the 
crown or top of each stem the stalks should be 
about 3 or 4 feet high. When the buds appear, 
select the center one, if it looks all right and 
pinch off the rest so that each stem has only one 
bud. Each stalk will then develop one large 
flower that should make your neighbors mighty 
envious. Cover the plants in the winter with 
straw, hay or leaves. Do not use manure as a 
cover.

Now Is the Best 
Time To Start 

All evergreens are dug and 
packed for successful transplant¬ 
ing. If a tree needs an earth- 
ball, it gets it. Let us take care 
of that part for you. All trees 
carefully handled. 


How to Plant 
Evergreens 

Evergreens require but 
ordinary garden soil. A 
good coating of manure 
or fertilizer mixed with 
the soil before planting 
will greatly enhance 
their beauty and increase 
the yearly growth. Set 
the trees the same depth 
as they have been grow¬ 
ing in the nursery. For 
trees without ball of soil 
spread the roots out and 
downward. Press the soil 
firmly around the roots 
and then give the trees 
a good drink of water. 
No more watering is 
needed unless the weath¬ 
er should be very dry 
and arid. Evergreens 
can take care of them¬ 
selves with the bounti¬ 
ful aid of Mother Na¬ 
ture. 

“Nemapeg” is a sure 
sign of “Success.” 


Every tree is a specimen. Weil-sheared tops and 
splendid roots. Will double their size and value in one 
season, if planted early. 

The “Flome Beautiful” is acquired by the use of 
“Nemapeg’s” thrifty evergreens. 

Successful evergreen plantings—by early ordering 
and early planting of “Nemapeg’s” vigorous, weather- 
tested, Jersey-grown stock.

^^NEMAPEG’S** and Reiter 

A^dsJjecA, gjiA 

Azaleas are and always have been the joy of every gardener. Their gorgeous beauty, in late spring, cannot be painted in words. 
It is a “breath-taking” sight. 

The plants have a sturdy construction, well able to withstand severe weather. Grow compact and bushy and keep very neat, by 
judicious pruning and trimming. 


"NEMAPEG'S'' Finer Azaleas Bring You the Most Joy and Beauty 


AZALEA Hinodegiri. (The choice Red Japanese Evergreen 
Azalea.) The well-known brilliant red blooming sort. A com¬ 
pact growth of glossy, rounded evergreen foliage. A mass of 
flaming red. Heavy well-formed budded plants as follows: 
6-inch spread, each, 87c; 2 for ^1.59. 6- to S-inch spread, each, 
^1.25; 2 for ^2.00. 

A. Mollis (Chinese Azalea). Deciduous and very hardy. The 
flowers appear in May before the leaves unfold. Individual 
flowers 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Borne in great clusters. 
Shades of deep orange, as well as salmon and flame. Will stand 
full sun. Strong, well-budded plants, each, only 87c; 2 for

A. Schlippenbachi (Chinese Royal Azalea). One of the finest. 
A deciduous plant producing flowers of large size. Each flower 
nearly 3 inches across. Each stem carries as many as 8 to 10 
flowers in one cluster. A beautiful pale rose. Large foliage, 
a deep green, tinted bronze. In heavy 6-year-old budded plants, 
each, only ^2.00. This is a rare variety. 

A. Nudiflora (Pinxterbloom). Also deciduous, the flowers ap¬ 
pearing before the leaves, in most cases. The coral-pink flowers 
appear in clusters in May and June. A profuse bloomer and 
very hardy. Strong clumps, 1 to 1^2 ft., each, ^1.00. A fair

very beautiful Azalea. Strong clumps, 1J4-2

pact clump, with slender, upright branches that 
are erect and strong. The flowers are good- 
sized cups in sprays between the branches. A 
beautiful white touched with a delicate pink. 
Has beautiful, glossy green foliage, which 
turns reddish bronze in the fall. A rare gem

THEIR CARE: Rhododendrons 
and Azaleas prefer a shady location. 
They will thrive in semi-sun, but do 
not do so well in full sunlight. They 
require, for best growth, a soil hav¬ 
ing an acid reaction. This acidity 
may be had by adding to your soil 
either humus, leaf mold or peat 
moss. About two-thirds of this ma¬ 
terial to one-third soil. Never lime. 
Mulch with 2 to 3 inches of any of 
the three mentioned above, for re¬ 
taining moisture and acidity around 
the plants. YOU WILL HAVE 
SUCCESS.

Unquestionably PLANTS OF SUPERIOR BEAUTY! 

Their bloom and foliage is incomparable. Lovers of shade, they thrive 
equally well in the open on moist, well-drained ground. Rhododendrons may 
well be described as “Flowering Evergreens.” Their broad-leaved foliage is 
evergreen. Their clusters of flowers are beyond description. Large clusters 
measuring from 4 to 6 inches in diameter in rich colors.

yours for the asking. Nemapeg brings you MORE QUALITY FOR LESS
