Keller’s Seed Store

Plant a Garden for Health and Profit

It is now time for you to plan your Spring Garden. Have plenty of fresh vegetables for your table as well as for canning. Nothing can take the place of fresh vegetables from your own garden.

We have many letters in our files from sat- isfied customers telling of their wonderful prize vegetable gardens grown in years past from garden seed purchased from our store. To our old customers we wish to assure you we have been able to assemble our usual stocks of high grade garden and field seed. While there may be shortages in some varieties of vegetable seed before planting season is over, we feel we have adequate stocks to care for the needs of all of our old customers and many new ones will also be served.

Our seed stocks are either grown express- ly for us or are secured from the world’s best growers. It is our desire at all times to fur- nish our customers only the best in seed stocks, and especially only those varieties which we have found to be best adapted from our many years of experience and ob- servations in this section. With thousands of square feet available for storage in our warehouses we are able to buy our seeds in large quantities from the best growers. This enables us to keep on hand at all times for our customers the finest grades the market affords. In addition, no expense nor effort has been spared in the securing of seed cleaning and grading equipment to insure our customers that they will receive only seed of highest quality.

ECLIPSE BRAND SEEDS. Eclipse is our general Trade Brand for seeds. When you buy Eclipse seeds you buy the last word in quality. For purity, vitality, and germination, no better seeds can be produced. While soil and weather conditions play a very important part in crop production, yet the planting seed stocks are

equally important. Only the best seed stocks should be considered when placing your orders. When you consider how few seeds are required to plant an acre of ground, the seed cost is very low. When you buy our Eclipse Brand Seeds you are getting only the best. All Eclipse seeds are thoroughly cleaned and care- fully graded, then packed in heavy, secure packages for shipment to insure safe arrival in good condition.

GARDEN SEEDS. Our garden seed depart- ment offers exceptional inducements to those interested in finest grades of garden seeds for either commercial gardening or resale. Our catalog describes all the best standard vari- eties and all the new plants which have shown evidence of good adaptability to our climate. We give liberal premiums with all garden seed orders in addition to giving more seed per package than most seed companies.

PREMIUM SPECIAL. With every garden and flower seed order of $1.00 or more we will send a special collection of Dahlia Flowered Zinnias, Giants of California and the Pom Pom Lilliput Zinnias all in mixed colors.

These fine Zinnias will be an added attrac- tion growing in your garden.

Special to MARKET GARDENERS—

We list and carry all the standard sorts of vegetable seeds that are planted by the most progressive market gardeners in this section of the Southwest and can at all times furnish you with most any varieties you may need. If you will submit us a list of your planting needs, we will be more than glad to quote you our very best delivered prices on the same.

NON-WARRANTY. Although our seeds are bought only from the most reliable pro- ducers, and every precaution humanly possible is taken to give our customers exactly what they want with each order, we absolutely do not give any warranty—either expressed or implied as to description, quality, productive- ness, or any other characteristics of any seeds, bulbs, or plants sold by us, nor do we assume any responsibility whatsoever for the crop which may be produced.

QUICK DELIVERY SERVICE. From our location at Shawnee, Oklahoma, with rapid rail and highway connections to all parts of the country, we can make delivery to any part of the Southwest within a few hours after receipt of your order, either by freight, express, truck or parcel post.

GARDEN SEED SUPPLIES. The past growing season for producers of vegetable seed here in the United States has been reason- ably favorable. While help for harvesting of the seed crops has not been all that was needed, we do find that outside of a very few vegetable seed items, we have enough garden seed supplies in sight to take care of our cus- tomers’ needs.

Order early. You can help out if you will order your garden seeds early. By so doing you are assured of getting what you want and also with experienced help being short in all? departments if you will order early we can be sure of getting your order filled in time.

Our Terms are Cash F. O. B. Shawnee. We solicit your orders with our promise that we will give you honest goods at honest prices.

Be sure and enclose sales tax of 2% of total order if you live in Oklahoma.

Bermuda Onion Plants

Reports from the Bixby Experimental Farm show Yellow Sweet Spanish onion plants pro- duced a slightly higher yield than dry sets of same variety. Yields from transplanted onion plants were (5) five times greater than field seeding.

Our onion plants are all open field grown on our own irrigated farms in the Famous “WINTER GARDEN BELT” of South Texas. These plants are grown and shipped under our personal supervision and are grown from the finest selected stocks of Bermuda Onion Seed. Prospects are good for a good supply of Ber- muda Onion Plants.

We grow the famous Crystal White Wax and White or Yellow Bermuda, Sweet Spanish or Valencia onions by the millions and during the planting season receive them fresh daily. Also have a splendid assortment of the Georgia Frost-proof Cabbage Plants, embracing the Early Jersey Wakefield, Early Flat Dutch and Copenhagen Market—these being time-tested varieties, giving best results.

Virginia Soy Beans

This variety is about 20 days earlier than the Mammoth Yellow variety. The vines have an abundance of growth and it is a heavy yielder of beans. The vines stand about three feet high and are easily cut for hay. We do not hesitate to recommend this bean to our customers. Ask for prices.

Sweet Clover

Melllotus officinalis-Yellow Blossom Melilotus Alba White Blossom

Sweet Clover is also useful for soil im- provement as it is very valuable to lime and heavy clay and black soils, not only on account of the heavy stems and foliage, but also because of the thick heavy root system which upon decaying will improve the soil and its drain- age. Lands planted in Sweet Clover will in- crease greatly in value with each year’s growth. Planting of this wonderful Clover is certainly a great investment for land owners.

This can be called the upland alfalfa, as the pasture and hay is in every way its equal. Will grow on the very poorest soil. Is a super- ior soil builder, adapted to any soil, makes fine ensilage, and is one of the most popular plants for bees. Sweet clover honey is the best honey produced, and brings the highest price. Sow 12 to 15 pounds per acre in the fall or early spring. Yellow Bloom Biennial Sweet Clover also at same prices.

Prices, 30c per pound; 2 pounds 50c; post- paid. $30.00 per 100 Ibs. F. O. B. Shawnee, Oklahoma.

Korean Lespedeza

Since our crop is large and our prices lower, you cannot afford not to seed down part of your pasture lands. Especially would it pay you to sow Korean Lespedeza in with your oat acreages this spring. By so doing you will have an excellent late summer and early fall pasture after the oat crop has been harvested. As usual there will be some very low priced seed offered that will be heavily infested with noxious weed seeds, so demand the best seed and know what you are getting before you buy. Our seed is State tagged and tested and will please the most critical and at lowest prices possible for such high grade seed. Use Nitragin to inocu- late Lespedeza when sowing on new lands where this clover has never been grown. Nitra- gin inoculation will produce better stands and luxurious growth. Ask us for firm prices when you are ready to buy. Special prices on large amounts. Lb. 30c, postpaid; 2 Ibs. 655c, post- paid. $8.00 ber 100 Ibs. F. O. B. Shawnee, Oklahoma.

F. O. B. Shawnee, Oklahoma,

Oriental Mung Beans

Green Mung Beans do well as a soil build- ing and feed crop to plant on oats, wheat, barley, potato ground after these early crops have been harvested. These beans mature quickly, so they are more certain to produce satisfactory crops when planted late than Soy Beans or Cowpeas. Due to their upright growth they are easily harvested with combine equip- ment. Be sure and use Nitragin Inoculant for best results. If wanted for hay, you should drill broadcast with grain drill at rate of 20 lbs. per acre.

An exceptionally good hay crop and a wonderful soil improver and very drouth re sistant. About 10 pounds will plant an acre. Best results are obtained when planted in 2% to 3-foot rows, 4 to 5 inches in the drill. For hay purposes we advise planting in April.

We carry in stock most of the planting season the Red Mexican June and the White Mexican June seed corn. Either of these varie- ties are well adapted all over the Southwest and the past season especially most growers who planted one or both of these drouth-re- sisting varieties came through the season with some corn to feed or sell for seed. The Mexican June varieties do especially well if planted late and very often there are many spots of ground that cannot be planted early but can be worked up and planted to the Mexican June corn va- rieties late in June if necessary.
