A Colorful Garden From A Creative Gardener

Pelleted seeds with the coating tinted the same color as the blooms they produce is the latest addition to the expanding garden field. Now the guesswork can be eliminated from color grouping at planting time.

Ordinarily, seeds are coated or pelleted with chemical substances to encourage faster growth, larger blooms and to serve as guards against diseases and insects. Also, they are extra large, which makes them easier to plant and space, doing away with the laborious job of thinning later in the season. This new colored coating provides everything plain coating does, plus the fun of choosing the color of the blooms you wish before putting the seeds in the ground. Now the gardener can truly become the master of color in his garden.

At the present time home gardeners can get sweet pea, zinnia and petunia seeds in Kolorcoat, which is a good start for painting with flowers in the garden.

Not long ago the manufacturer invited home gardeners to test and comment on these seeds. One woman drew a parallel between colored seeds and flower arrangement. “One is done in the soil and the other in the living room.” She felt that planting seeds according to color called for the same amount of artistic skill as arranging the blooms.

The home gardener, like the amateur painter, goes through stages of experimenting with color combinations, harmonies, design and pattern. So, an imaginative business man, who is also a home gardener, took the idea of coloring seeds, experimented with it and has now presented it to all home gardeners to use and enjoy.
