Secure You Plant from Natural Enemies

The devices and instruments used in the fight against the enemies of plants are of two kinds:

(1) those who are used to provide mechanical protection for plants;

(2) those who are used to apply insecticides and fungicides.

On the first, the most useful part is covered. It usually consists of a wooden box, some eighteen inches to two feet square and about eight high, covered with glass, fabric protection, mosquito nets, son or mosquitoes. The first two blankets have, of course, the added advantage of keeping the heat and protection against the cold, thus allowing their use by planting earlier than is otherwise safe. They are widely used to obtain an additional safe and prompt start with cucumbers, melons and other vegetables vine.

Simplifying the protective devices placed in newly plants, like tomatoes or cabbage, reducing the worm, are severe, tin, cardboard or tar paper collars, which are made several inches tall and a size sufficient to be placed around the stem and penetrate an inch or so into the soil.

For the purposes of powders poison, the amateur gardener must provide itself with a powder gun. If one must be confined to a single implement, however, it will be possible to recover any of the workforce, compressed air sprayers. These are used for the purposes of spraying wet, and should be provided with one of many forms of fog nozzles, non-cloggable automatic type being the best. For more work pump a barrel, mounted on wheels, will be desirable, but one of the above will do much work in a short time. Extension rods for use in spraying trees and vines May to be obtained. For operations on a very small scale a good hand-May be used syringe, but as a general thing it will be better to invest a few dollars more and get a small reservoir sprayer, because it takes a continuous stream or spray or holds a far greater amount of the spray. Whatever type is required, to obtain a machine-brass it to three or four of those made of metal less expensive, very quickly succumbs to the, corrosion action of the strong poisons and chemicals that they are using.

Instruments for harvest, beside the spade, hoe pin-and-spading fork, very few are used in the small garden, as most of them need not only long rows to be economically used, but the horsepower too. The onion harvester attachment for the double wheel hoe, May be used with advantage in the easing of onions, beets, turnips, etc., soil or cut spinach. Running hand-plow close to each side of carrots, parsnips and other increasingly deep vegetables helps them physically. For fruit picking, with tall trees, the wire fingers to reap the benefits attached to the end of a long handle, will be a great help, but with the modern method of using low-headed tree, will not be necessary.

Another class of garden implements are those used in size but if it is assisted by well from the start, a good catch high-knife and a pair of secateurs easily manage all the work of nature.

Another kind of garden is the one device that is used to support plants, as the stakes, fencing, son, etc. In total, too little attention is usually given to those, such as care store during the winter, they do not last for years, but add greatly to the convenience of culture and the appearance of the garden.

As a last word to the buyer of garden tools, I would say: firstly thoroughly investigate the different kinds available, and when you buy, remember that a good tool or a good machine will give you satisfactory use long, long after price is forgotten, while a poor person is a constant source of discomfort. Get good tools, and take care of them. And let me repeat that a few dollars a year, judiciously spent, for tools and subsequently supported, will soon give you a very comprehensive, and add to your garden profit and pleasure.
