There is no reason why you
shouldn’t have a good garden,
and there is nothing that will
pay you quite us handsomely
on the investment. If your
ground is properly prepared,
if you have it properly work
ed, the only remaining essen
tial is GOOD SEED.
But no matter how fertile
the ground, or how well you
have it tended, it is all wasted
if the seed are poor. When
we say poor seed it does not
necessarily mean old seed.
They may be perfectly fresh,
but poor stock—just as a scrub
and a Jersey are both cows.
We sell GOOD SEED. We
buy our supplies in bulk direct
from D. Landreth & Co., who
have been in the business for
125 consecutive years. We
package them in our place,
giving liberal measure. We
guarantee that they are fresh,
full measure, and the best that
money will buy. The most
successful gardeners in New
