RECLEANED PREMIUM LAWN GRASS

One pound sows 400 square feet; 60 to 75 pounds will sow an acre.

A mixture of grasses that is adapted to lawn mak- ing, and contains none of the coarse grasses nor those that grow in tufts or clumps. No one grass makes an ideal lawn, so we have put into our lawn grass a well- balanced mixture of grasses that are at their best dur- ing different months of the year, will give a beautiful green growth at all seasons, and will make a rich, deep green velvety lawn in as short a time as possible.

Lb., 90c; 5 Ibs., $4.25; bu. (20 Ibs.) , $15.00.

SHADY LAWN GRASS

In nearly all lawns there are shaded spots under trees or near the house, where it is hard to get a satis- factory growth. Shady Lawn Grass is prepared espe- cially for such situations and will produce a thick growth that will blend nicely with the grass growing in other parts of the lawn.

Lb., $1.00; 5 Ibs., $4.75; bu. (20 Ibs.), $17.00.

KENTUCKY BLUE GRASS

Our stock of this popular grass is grown in the Blue Grass section of this state. It is fancy recleaned seed and extra heavy. Succeeds well on most fertile soils in the central and northern states. Grows slowly at first but makes a thick, compact turf if properly cared for after sowing. For lawn purposes sow from 3 to 4 bushels per acre.

Lb., 85c; 5 Ibs., $4.00; bu. (14 Ibs.), $9.00.

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE ORDERING

ERRORS—We exercise the utmost care in filling orders, striving to do a little more than we offer; yet in the press of business, errors sometimes occur, in which event we wish to be promptly notified of the fact, and will make such corrections as will be satis- factory. Please keep copies of all your orders for comparison.

ABOUT WARRANTY

The HALL SEED COMPANY gives no warranty, ex- press or implied, as to the productiveness of any seeds or bulbs it sells and will not be in any way responsible for the crop. Our liability, in all instances, is limited to the purchase price of the seed.

Crops are dependent for success or failure on so many things besides seeds that it is impossible for us to give any crop warranty or guarantee. This does not mean that we lack confidence in the seeds we sell, but we have no control over the seeds after they leave our house, especially so as to the methods of planting, cultivating and fertilizing, all of which are important factors in the success of any crop. If we should war- rant or guarantee seeds in any way, we could be held responsible for the failure of the crop, regardless of cause, and this is a responsibility we cannot accept. No responsible seedsman gives any such warranty.

THE VARIETIES OF GARDEN SEED offered in this catalog are the BEST for this latitude. They have been tried out and have proven to be the best. We

have tried to confine our stock of seeds to those varie- ties that really have merit and are best suited to our local market. If you are in doubt about which varie- ties to plant, we sincerely hope this catalog will help you to decide, We will cheerfully give you any further information that we can.

ORDER YOUR SEEDS AT ONCE—Read this catalog through carefully and make up your order while you have plenty of time. Planting time will soon slip around and you want to be ready with the seeds on hand. SEND, US YOUR, ORDERS “WHILE OUR STOCKS ARE COMPLETE.

OUR PRICES subject to previous sales,

are market changes and

WE DO NOT PAY POSTAGE except on packets, ounces and quarter-pounds of vegetable and flower seeds at catalogue prices, for larger quantities add postage if ordered by parcel post. All other items listed in this catalogue unless otherwise stated, prices are f. o. b. Louisville, Ky., if delivery by parcel post is wanted sufficient postage should be added.

WE DO NOT SEND C. O. D., as the cost of collecting

return charges is quite an unnecessary item of ex- pense, and the prices being given, we can conceive of no necessity to warrant goods being so sent.

HOW TO SEND CASH—We prefer that you send stamps or Post Office Money Order, for small amounts. Send Post Office Money Order, Express Money Order or Certified Checks or Bank Draft on Louisville for larger amounts. Your Rural Carrier or Postmaster

will make out the Money Order for you.

ASPARAGUS ROOTS

Asparagus roots are planted in trenches 1 foot wide and 6 inches deep. Lay the roots 18 inches apart, taking care to spread the roots well with the crown up. Then cover them with about 4 inches of soil. As the plants begin to srow, gradually fill in the trenches to the surface. They may be planted in either single-row or double-row beds, allowing about 8 to 4 feet between beds, in either case, 2-year-old plants, set owt in the Spring, will yield tips for use the following Spring; however, it is best to cut sparingly the first season. One-year-old plants should not be cut until the second season. 40c for 25; $1.25 per 100; $11.00 per 1000.
