Gas Water v. Wireworm (S371b: 1884)
Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A brief request for information, printed on page 544 of the
28 June 1884 issue of The Garden. Wallace was a regular reader of and contributor to the
magazine, so these initials are probably his. To link directly to this page, connect with:
5214.--Gas water v. wireworm.--The ground here is very much infested with wireworm.
Might I soak any portion of it with water from the gasworks, digging it well in? If so, how long
must the ground so dressed be left before it would be safe to plant anything? Perhaps some of
your readers will kindly answer these questions. --A. R. W.
