Young, F.R.H.S. With the sudden death of my husband Charles, who passed away March 29, I know it would be his wish that I carry on the gardening column. We always enjoyed working together on everything. With regard to flowers, Charlie's first love was sweet peas and roses and as an article appeared recently on sweet peas I would like to say something about roses. COME PEOPLE do not have much luck with growing these beautiful flowers, but with the right conditions and care you can have a wonderful display. To begin with you must purchase good bushes, each plant having at least four good canes with the diameter of the canes being at least %" to W. As an article appeared in The Lethbridge Herald about this time last year on roses, I will just briefly run over the procedure for planting. If the bushes are received before it is possible to plant them outside, trim off all 'damaged roots and put immediately into a pail of water containing a dilute solution of 10-52-17, 1 tbsp. to a gallon of water. They can be left in this for 2 or 3 days, otherwise, dig a trench and bury them just enough to cover them to keep them from drying out. When ready to set out in the garden trim the tops, leaving three or four buds on each cane, pruning above the bud and at a slight angle. Roses, require a lot of sunshine and do best in a medium to heavy, well - drained soil to which has been added some well - rotted manure (if obtainable), otherwise use a hand- ful of 11-48-0 or 11-55-0, working it well into the bottom of each Jiole, making sure that the Iroots do not come in contact with the fertilizer. As roses seem to grow better in a soil that is slightly acid, peat moss may be added at the same time as the fertilizer, along with some coarse sand to provide for good drainage. When planting the bushes set the graft from 2 to A inches below the surface of the soil. The deeper depth is for the tender varieties of roses and also for people who do not want to take the trouble to mulch them for winter protection. After planting, water well in with a complete fertilizer and then hill the soil up around them to about 6 or 8 inches to ensure that they do not dry out from the effects of the wind or other factors. Gradually remove the earth when the plants show signs of growth. Some Hybrid Teas can be planted 18" apart, but the more vigorous ones should be approximately 24 to 36" apart, depending upon variety. These beautiful flowers give so much pleasure - have fun, and experiment with the different varieties. Besides the Hybrid Teas, there are the Floribun- Do-It-Y our self Inspect Outside The House By MR. FIX You are never likelier to find damage in an inspection of house and grounds than you are in the spring. Wind, snow and freezing weather all take tbejr toll. What were hairline cracks in masonry in the winter will be good - sized crevices by spring. Wind damage may be found on the roof in the form of loosened shingles. Takes a look at the outside of your house from the top down. Shingles that the wind has loos- ened or caused to curl can be taken care of with little trouble. Generally a dab of roof cement on tlhe underside, or a smear of it right across the underside of the edge will bold the shingle down. If shingles are slightly torn, nail down with roofing nails after using roof coating on the underside. Then put a dab of the coating on the nail heads. Broken shingles should be carefully removed by gently lifting the shingle above and lifting out the exposed nails Vocational Preparatory Instructor ALBERTA VOCATIONAL CENTRE, CALGARY.

They will probably need cleaning first of all. There may be damage due to the weight of ice and snow. Renail hangers wherever needed so that gutters are not sag- Look for cracks in foundations, sidewalks, concrete steps and driveway. Cracks will have to be cleaned out, even enlarged before patching. Make the opening wider at the bottom than the top to keep the patch in. Wet thoroughly. Use a sponge or hose. Ready - mix patching materials, the kind to which you just add water, are the best to use. Get mortar or concrete mix, depending on the nature of the material to be repaired. Fill the crack with the patching material, using a pointed trowel for amy fine work.

While you are inspecting your house, it is a good idea to keep a calking gun in band. You can take care of two jobs at once. Wherever calking has dried out or cracked, scrape away the odd and replace with new. Give special attention to doors land windows and underneath window sills. Take a good look at the paint on your house. Seepage may have caused paint to blister. Even if you don't intend to paint now but wait until fall instead, it's not a bad idea to scrape and prime any bad areas. Then when you are ready to paint that big job wilJ be out of the way. This is the time to put snow shovels away and haul out garden tools. Check over tools, lawn mower, hoses so that you can repair or replace now. Even if you aire not ready to put up screens, get them out and check them over. The least they will need is cleaning. They also may need repairing or painting. When you do take off storm windows and doors, put them away clean, cover them and store in a dry place. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

There are other types, but these are the ones most universally grown. Mrs. G. - I have seen Pampas Grass growing in Vancouver and would like to know if it could be grown here and would it be hardy in this climate? Ans. - Pampas Grass (Cor-taderia argentea) which grows around 5 to 7 feet tall, has long, white plumes. They make excellent cut and dried flowers but unfortunately are not hardy here. They take two years to flower and could be set outside in a sheltered spot during the summer but would have to be taken into a greenhouse for the rest of the year, and as they grow so big you would require a large place to put them.

Apollo, Snowdrop 2 New Gladiolus If you are a gladiolus fan - and most of us are - you are looking forward to the Annual awards of All-America Gladiolus Selections. The announcement of the new winners is one highlight of the gardener's year that comes early. Everyone, it seems, likes a winner. For the home gardener who is satisfied only with the latest and best of new flowers, the All-America winners have special appeal. Just announced are the All-America gladiolus for 1970, Apollo and Snowdrop. Let's look at Apollo first. It is a gladiolus of extra good looks, with shades of rich orange, Might sabnon and deep yellow. The extremely heavily ruffled florets are beautifully arranged on a slender, willowy stem. Eight to ten of the 22 buds open at once on a long flower-head of up to 30 inches; the plant grows to a height of 60 inches. The blooming date is 80 days; the color and size classification is 431. The beauty of coloring and ruffling so evident in today's modern glads reaches a new apogee in the 1970 All-America winner, Apollo. Snowdrop is a small flowered snow white gladiolus of transcending beauty. Seven slightly ruffled florets, as round as dollars, open at one time orf graceful spikes of 17-18 buds. The vigorous plants grow to a height of 4 feet; the foliage is deep green and glossy. It is an excellent bulb maker. The blooming date is 80 days; the classification is 200. Snowdrop is a lovely, dainty little gladiolus. A gem in the garden and beautiful in flower arrangements. Both Snowdrop and Apollo were developed by Carl Fischer, St. Charles, Minnesota. Watch for the All-America glads in catalogues and in garden stores, florist shops and department stores. They are available as bulbs (technically, known as "corm") and are individually packaged in colorful, plastic mesh bags. The new winners had the same rigorous testing that goes into every All-America gladiolus. SAW MUCH WAR In the first 66 years of her history Halifax saw 44 years of war.
