FIX Your garage, standing out there completely surrounded by the weather, takes a beating all whiter long. Such a lightly con- structed building is likely to need more maintenance than your home. Most garages have thin walls, rre not insulated and are un- heated. First thing in the spring, check it over to see how much damage the weather did. Open up the doors and win- dows to let the garage air out and get dry and make a care- ful inspection of the building some -warm spring day. Inspect from the ground up. Use a screwdriver or a pocket- knife and probe the bottom, boards. These are the ones like- ly to rot from high snows and water leaving them submerged. Siding thai is rotted or warp- ed should be replaced. On the inside, take a look at the plate at the base of the wall. Stains on Ibe floor vill in- dicate fiat water has leaked in. Calk these seams and any others through which you can see dayJigM. Inspect ali ths walls carefully on the inside for open seams between pieces of siding. The wood plates are bolted to the concrete base. It's a good idea to check the nuts on these bolts. Try giving them a turn with a wrench. Snow and rain generally en- ter under an overhead door. There's a special rulsber weath- erstrip you can nail to the bcrt.-; torn the door to prevent this. Lacking such a weatherstrip, you can make one by sliMing an eld lenglh of garden hose; ns Jiang it to the IXTttom of UK- door. If Ihe inside and base of the dow are not painted, treat; these areas with linseed oiL Do the same for panel edges that are exposed when the door folds up. Check all painted surfaces. Scrape and sand wherever the paint is cracked or peeled. Plan to paint when warm weather comes. Prime all the spots you sand. If there are stains where nail- heads have rusted through the paint, sand these areas and spot prune with shellac or aluminum paint H the garage has gutters, check them for rust. Scrape, sand and repaint with rust-pre- yenlive paint If the downspout is not connected to a drain, then install a splash block. This will keep the water away from the foundation and wall. Take a look at the roof. Plan to replace any shingles that are damaged or blown loose. Cover new nailbeads with roof- ing asphalt If your garage roof is cover- Buying a used motor The appearance of a motor may be the best guide in pur- chasing a used unit. Look for signs that might in- dicate misuse. Dents that have been allowed to rust, corrosion on metal parts of the motor, sludge and dirt on the inner workings, frayed electrical connections and a beat up propeller point to careless maintenance by the previous owner. An overall mechanical check should be carried out when pur- chasing a used outboard. Check how effective the igni- tion is, if the fuel system is pumping the proper amount of fuel and if there is water com- ing from the lower unit, indica- ting the water pump 5s opera- tine properly. The sound of an outboard is the best guide to its condition. If it does not sound right there is probably something seriously wrong with one of the major systems. Ask the boat dealer for the name of the previous owner. If you can contact him, find out what the motor was used for and how much it was used. Since the previous owner is not selling the unit he might even tell you about any trouble he bad with it ed with roll roofing, use as- phalt cement to fill cracks and reinforce seams. If the roofing has been on for some time, you may waai to brush on a coat- ing over the entire area. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

THE DELIGHTFUL TROLLIUS I have been asked to write on Trollius or Globe Flower. This is one subject that certsdnly has not been covered for a long time, and should have, because it is a really beautiful peren- nial. It belongs to the Butter- cup family, having large, globu- lar yellow or orange flowers. Some of the related plants in- clude Peony, Nigella, Marsh Marigold, Christmas Rose and some Anemones. Most varieties start blooming in May and Jiine, but some don't produce flowers until July. They really make a garden gay-looking wJren they first come out. Ac- tually, the showy petals are net "true" petals, but rather sepals. Concealed within the flowers are the almost incon- spicuous true petals. Not only are these flowers a delight in the garden, but they are inval- uable as cut flowers, brighten- ing up a room. Cut in the bud stage, when first opening, to provide a longer period of bloom. Some people say they look like small, semi-double roses. They grow from the dwarf, rock garden varieties, all the way up to about 36 inches. Trollius will grow either by sowing seeds, which must be fresh, and are quite slow to germinate, often not coming up until the second year, or by new roots purchased from a nur- sery, or by division of estab- lished plants. You can dig up the roots after the plant has finished blooming, or in the fall, which is actually better. Give them enough time to re-estab- lish their root system before freeze-up. Once the plants are established, they grow into nice bushy specimens and do not re- quire to be split up for several years. Space about 10 to 15 inches apart, depending on var- iety. Trollius will grow in either sun or shade, hut must be provided with plenty of mois- ture The should be rich and loamy and well dug. They are ideal plants in a border, beds, rock gardens or beside pools. The deeply cut leaves are also quite attractive, so along with the lovely blooms, they are a worth while perennial in any garden.

In the first place, this is a very slow-growing plant, producing only one or two tiers a year. It requires an even temperature of around 60 degrees during the winter, and indirect sunlight by way of fil- tering through curtains. Some- times, if a plant is cut back, it will produce shoots, but its usu- al habit of growth is producing tiers of flat, soft-leaved branch- Keep evenly moist and fer- tilize once a month from spring to the middle of September, us- ing 25-15-20 according to direc- tions. When the plants are small, it is most important they be reported annually, gradu- ating each year to a container once size larger than previous- ly, until you reach an 8-inch size, at which time no further repotting is necessary. These plants grow best when pot- bound. Use 2-3 loam, 1-3 peat- moss with a little sand as a potting mixture. is a language of the flowers, That cheers and bright- ens many hours, A lesson from each flower that grows.

Fridoy, April 6, 1973 THE tETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Tree roses can accent many areas of garden To many people, all roses belong in just one outdoor area the rose garden Ac- tually, that is not true of any rose, particularly specialized types such as the tree rose. Tree roses are an elegant, man-made form, comprising generally the root of one spe- cies, the trunk or standard of another, and hte top of any one of the gorgeous modern rose hybrids. While tree roses do add greatly as accent points Jn a rose garden, they are equally at home and appropriately serve the same purpose in many other areas of the borne grounds along the drive or a walk, particularly with low evergreens planted around the bases, to accent terraces or steps, entrance areas, in fact almost anywhere a tall, formal, elegant plant will add to the beauty and design of the area.
