Mrs. Robert Miller, 122 Miller Ave., Lancaster.
liquid fertilizer or dry
fertilizer is a common
question. However, it doesn’t
make much difference which
form is used as long as you
apply the same amount of ’
plant food and know the cost
per unit of that plant food.
For example, 100 pounds of a
dry fertilizer such as 5-10-10
and 100 pounds (about 10
gallons) of a 540-10 liquid
fertilizer solution should
contain the same amount of
actual plaht food - 5 pounds
of nitrogen, 10 pounds of
jphosphorus, and 10 pounds of
available potash. All fer
tilizer products sold must
contain a label giving, the
fertilizer values!! When
applied at the same time, or
at the same stage of growth,
both should give equivalent
results. The important thing
is to evaluate the amount of
actual plant food being
applied and the cost per
pound of that plant food.

Flowering plants
Hybrid tea roses are
among the most popular
summer flowering plants in
this part of the country;
however, they do need at
tention each week to control
leaf diseases and insects.
Early June produces the
first crop of blooms and the
buds look very promising
this year. Growers should
spray weekly with Benlate or
Folpet to control leaf
diseases and include either
Sevin or Malathion to control
the aphids and other insects.
Effort should be made to
cover the underside of the
leaves as well as the top
surfaces. Following the first
blossom period -some
growers will fertilize their
plants to encourage new
growth and additional
blooms later this summer.
All fertilizing should be
done by early August to
permit time for the growth to_
harden before winter.
