Wills's Cigarettes

31 / Gardening Hints / A series of 50.

Mistake of Planting too near Trees. Herbaceous plants set too near trees and large shrubs will not thrive. Not only do big trees shade the plants and so rob them of sunlight and rain, but the spreading roots fill the ground and monopolise the food-material in the soil. Some trees (e.g., Beech) impoverish the soil to a much greater extent than others, and even grass cannot be grown successfully. Beneath an Oak, on the other hand, plants may sometimes be grown right up to the bole.

W. D. & H. O. Wills / Bristol & London. Branch of the Imperial Tobacco Co. (of Great Britain & Ireland), Ltd.
