"What Burpee's Seed Have Done for Me."

The most important thing is that they have proven to me, that it pays to plant the very best seed. A man goes to buy a horse, cow or even a dog he must know the stock they come from and they must be the best obtainable, but when he goes to plant a garden any old seed will do, then he laments his failure. Its time for people to learn that improved tested seed pay as well as improved stock.

Burpee's free pamplets have been a source of information both in planning and culvation of garden and flower beds and the combating of insect pests.

Our garden is very small, but is furnishing us with plenty of fresh vegetables for table and to can for winter use. Working it has been excellent exercise for my husband and watching the things shoot through the ground, grow and mature, has given me new life and hope and has been the most important factor in helping me recover from a serious surgical operation.

I shall always boost Burpee's Seed, Service and courtesy. No order is too small to receive their best attention and their seed are tested and come [[underlined]] true [[/underlined]].
