Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta ,28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 9, 1974 HOME OF THE WEEK LOWEE LEVEL f DESIGN SF3-740 1260 Sq. Ft. 1197 Sq. Ft. The split foyer design illustrated this week offers economies of construction that are of real interest in these days of steadily raising home building costs. The split foyer allows the house to be raised several feet out of the ground. This not only reduces excavation costs, but allows basement windows to be large enough so that basement rooms can provide useful living space even bedrooms or complete living quarters in most planning jurisdictions. At the same time, the foundation is still far enough into the ground to be below frost lines and no special foundation provisions are needed. The design is particularly attractive in areas of high ground water levels where a full depth basement can be difficult to keep dry Another attractive feature is the simple gable roof which can be built economically with prefabricated roof trusses. When these are used, interior walls carry no loads and the upper floor layout can be revised to suit almost any arrangement an owner might wish.

Young, F.R.H.S. m- tall stately eremurus is M'liloir seen here growing in 1 think I have only ;t twice The spikes are dcnseh covered for halt their height with hundreds of tiny. 'cjthen, star shaped florets ir colors ot white and yellow ,imi pink to lavender These appear in June and July from ilie bottom up and finish in the sam'> as a lupin spike. lasting for several weeks The basal leaves are also quite ,iitrarlivp this herbacious perennial belongs to the lily tdinilv it has no bulb but has a i luster ot thick fleshy white loot-, torm a crown irom which the feeding roots spring These should be handl- ed with care as they are quite brittle and easily broken. A well grown bed of eremurus adds a touch of distinction to any garden, growing six to eight teet in height. Late summer is the best time to plant eremurus, although it may be done in the spi .ng You can either purchase mature crowns, or can grow the plants from seed which will take up to three years to reach flowering Seeds should be sown in the autumn, and be as fresh as possible. Sow in equal parts of loam, sand and leafmould, about one half inch deep in a cold frame or cool greenhouse. The odd plant may appear the first year, but most will not show up until the following spring When large enough to handle, pot up separately into pots and when these are full of roots they can be set out into a prepared spot in the garden. They do best in a deep, rich loam in a sunny, sheltered spot, preferably facing south or south west. When preparing the hole, dig in some well rotted maure, some coarse sand for drainage and some bonemeal. A good way to plant them is to make a small mound into which the fine roots are set about four inches deep, preferably on a layer of sand, while the thick fleshy roots are covered only about a half inch with a layer of sand. Some protection is required during the winter, after the flower spikes have died down. A frequent cause of failure is insufficient ripening of the crowns, so after the flower spikes have died down some growers place a piece of glass over the plants so that they get baked by the heat of the sun. Once established, this plant likes to remain un- disturbed for many years. A hgnt feeding of a general fer- tilizer will benefit both young and old plants. Sometimes slugs can be tiresome, so watch out for them as they eat the young, succulent shoots. Mrs. T. I have a problem with my peonies. Each year they look so nice and healthy and have lots of buds, but the petals seem to turn brown on the outsides and many of them rot before they are fully open. What causes this? Ans. One of the main causes of peonies failing to develop their flowers is dryness at the roots and sometimes damage by late frosts. Too deep planting could cause lack of flowering, poor soil or too much shade. Keep plants well watered and give them a mul- ch of either peat or leafmold during the early spring to pre- vent drying out. Instant fertilizer 'Instant' fertilizer applied directly on foliage of wall plants and new shade trees can result in a five fold growth rate.
