No garden Is complete without theold-faahloned English tulips, and they are ao easily grown. Unlike ■ so many of the other tulips which I seem to deteriorate dfter a few years, th* cottage tulips appear year after year and are our loyal friends for a ong period. Many of them are fragrant. One year a neighbor of mine sent direct to Holland for several hun ­ dred tulip bulbs and my order was Included In her list When the box arrived In October we got quite a thrill In opening It. as every bulg came in a separate paper bag and — ’**- ’ - -- — How to re ­ plant quick growing annuals around tha tulips. Cornflowers, phlox drummondl. California pop ­ ples, clarkla and annual larkspur m*ke an excellent screen for the yellowing leaves. In order to plant the tulip prop ­ erly. It Is necessary to understand Just how It grows. At th* base of the bulb little white rotta sprout and these serve as food oollectors. If the soli Is hard It la difficult for the tiny roots to push their way through. Except In rare cases, all bulbs require thorough drainage, and where the top soil Is naturally heavy and wet. It should be remov ­ ed. Then dig the subsoil wall, cov ­ er with broken stone, gravsl or cln- dor*. Now plac* th* top soil back, after mixing It with stand, ashes or : agricultural- lima to lighten It If the frfll Is sandy, add leafmold. peat or commercial humus, although my tulips seem to prefer sandy soil.
