TERMS OF BUSINESS

CASH WITH ORDER.—On all cash orders of £2 and over for

Agricultural Seeds (with the exception of Seed Grain, Peas, and Beans), bags are free and we will pay Freight—goods train only—

to any railway station in Victoria. On Interstate orders of £5 and over bags are also free, and we will pay goods train freight to any railway station.

CARRIAGE.—We deliver all Goods to Toorak, Bayswater. or Melbourne Stations, the various Carriers’ Offices in the City, and at the Iriver Wharves. Retail orders for packet seeds (Peas, Beans, and Sweet Corn excepted) are posted free to any part of the world For seeds by weight and all other goods (except where specified) carriage is charged extra and should be added to remittances.

TRANSIT BY PASSENGER TRAIN.—When goods have to be sent by prR-enger train, freight must be added to remittances, as new Railway Department regulations stipulate that all goods sent by passenger train must be prepaid, otherwise 25 per cent, will be added by the Railways Department at your end.

NEW CUSTOMERS.—From unknown correspondents we expect a remittance with order, or a satisfactory reference to some Melbourne House.

REMITTANCES.—Out customers may remit by Bank Draft. Cheque, or Post Office Order, and for amounts under ten shillings we suggest that Postal Notes or Stamps be sent. Small orders should be accompanied by a remittance, as the extra postage incurred in rendering accounts, and acknowledging small amounts is a serious and unnecessary charge.

CHEQUES.—Exchange must be added, viz., 6d. for Victoria (country); 1/- other States.

PACKING.—We will at all times see that goods are well and securely i>acked or bagged, but, after despatching such Goods, signed for “In Good Order,” our responsibility for any loss, damage, or miscarriage ceases.

SACKS. BAGS, AND CASES.—All Sacks, Bags, Cases, etc., will be charged at the Lowest Rate, and, if returned immediately and in Good Condition, two-thirds of the full price will be allowed.

Cash orders for Agricultural Seeds excepted.

Substitution.—Should we be unable to supply all varieties of Seeds or Plants ordered. Customers will kindly state (with their orders) whether to substitute the next best sort.

GOOD SEED is a commanding feature of our business, and in order to guard against a possibility of disappointment in this respect, we as^rtain, by a perfect system of testing, the percentage of growth, and only those samples giving satisfactory evidence of vitality are sent out.

IMPORTANT    NOTICE.—All    our Fruit Trees, Citrus,

Shrubs, Plants, and Seedlings    are sent out In    a healthy

and    hardy condition,    and we wish It    to be distinctly    understood

that we take no responsibility whatsoever after the plants leave our establishment, nor hold ourselves responsible for results AND REPLACEMENTS WILL IN NO WAY BE ENTERTAINED, and sale Is made subject to these conditions only.

NON-WARRANTY.—All our seeds, plants, bulbs and tubers are offered and sold subject to the following Conditions of Sale as laid

down by the Seed Men bants* Association of Victoria:—

“The description under which our seeds, plants, bulbs and tubers are    sold signifies no    more than that    we believe they    have been

taken from reliable stocks, and in no case does the description signify that the resultant crop will grow tme to our description. Owing to many difficulties beyond human control and other causes, we give no warranty, express or implied, as to the description, growth, quality, purity or productiveness of the seed or other goods and will not be* responsible for the resultant crop. Moreover. the liability (if any) in re>peot of the goods actually delixered is limited to the price paid to us for the specific seed or other goods in res{>ect of which any claim may be made, or £5. whichever is the greater. If these Conditions of Sale are not acceptable, the buyer must immediately return the goods.”

The Seeds described and priced in this Catalogue except Bird Foods and Medicinal Seeds are Seeds for Sowing.

Law Sonnier** Lawn Cirasses

UNEQUALLED FOR PURITY AN IP GERMINATION

A bright, velvety, well tended lawn is the first essential of an attractive garden, therefore it is important that you sow only heavy weight, extremely pure, and thoroughly recleaned seed. Law Somner’s Lawn Grass Seeds are thoroughly recleaned by our modern Seed Cleaning Machines, and therefore are of highest purity and germination, free from weed seeds, dust, and chaff.

Our seeds are used by Melbourne s leading Landscape Gardeners, Municipal Councils, and Sporting Clubs.

Follow* these hints on the formation of Law’ns from seed: —

A lawn may be made on almost any class of soil, but a stiff, black loam or light, friable clay is besrt. The ground to be laid down must be first thoroughly drained and levelled—these are points of great importance. In levelling ground, occasion should be taken to have the soil distributed so as to give a depth of about inches at least of equal quality over all. The soil must next be thoroughly cleared of weeds and coarse-growing grasses; neglect of this precaution will cause much trouble afterwards, as the finer will be smothered, and the lawn become unsightly. The best method of clearing the ground is by digging it over to a depth of a foot, and hand-picking as dug.

After sowing, the ground should be lightly raked and heavily rolled; this will give the necessary firmness to the soil, and prevent the young plants being scorched up before they have firmly rooted. In dry weather it will bo necessary to water the lawn frequently, both before and after the young grasses have vegetated.

When the plants are sufficiently high to catch the scythe, the lawn must be mown. This must on no account lx* neglected, as a clo>e bottom is obtained solely by attention to this, and frequent rolling.

HEAVY SOWINGS MAKE BETTER LAWNS.

If the seed is sown thickly, the ground will be covered from the start with a thick mat composed of a multitude of little grass plants, which daily increase and form a close turf. If, on the other hand, the seed be sown thinly, a thin crop is produced which may be damaged or destroyed by a short burst of hot sun or cold wind.
