Your garden By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. By J. C. GRAHAM CP Correspondent AUCKLAND (CP) "She'll be right mate" is just about the New Zealand national motto. It expresses in the local version of English the idea that things will turn out all right in the end, and not to worry too much in advance. Such expressions are among the first things immigrants have to learn in order to un- derstand what is going on A New Zealand ambassador abroad once formally advised a foreign government that New Zealanders arriving by air and saying they were crook would not be inter- national criminals, but merely tourists advising that they did not feel well. One enterprising immi- grant, applying for nation- alization papers, recently re- solved to show the authorities how well he had absorbed the local jargon. His letter read as follows (with approximate trans- lations in G'day mate (Dear Lis- ten the guts (Can you give me some informa- I rekon I must be a dinkum Kiwi (real New Zea- lander) by now I bin 'ere 12 years I emigrated from Pom- myland (England) wiv me Mum 'n' Dad 'n' bruvvers in 1962 I done me School C and UE (school leaving exam- inations) I married a Kiwi sheila (New Zealand girl) She's all right too mate (it's an all-pur- pose above) and me four-year old sprog (offspring) was born in Taih- ape, poor kid (an outback town) I even work for the flamin' government I read Barry Crump (best- selling author writing in the New Zealand vernacular) I can put up an eight-wire fence (barbed wire, for stock) I sunk a jug (drank a beer- container holding several glasses) in under a minute once I never bin in prison but I must confess between you 'n' me 'n' the gatepost I got a ticket for no warrant of fit- Send money Utility SPIRIT OF I LONDON There's a new spirit at" I TV B tefiC ruse1 ne THE BRITISH CRUISE LINE roMEXICO Departing Vancouver j B.C.

At 70 degrees, the preservative solution gets Sugar up into the flower, resulting in a better over-all condition Going back to roses, and seeing that there are many horticultural shows on at this time of the year, you might be interested in the following From tests carried out by one of the top horticulturists in Florida, roses put in water in a 75 degrees, lasted approximately four to five days, as against eight to nine days for those in the same temperature, but with a preservative added. Most commercial flower preservatives include sugar, acidifying agents, fungicide and chelating agents. One often receives a small package of preservative along with cut flowers from a florist shop, but it may also be purchased separately. If you do not want to buy this material, you can use certain items you probably have around the home. If you are using flowers from the garden, immediately after cutting, put in fairly warm water and place in a cool room until the water comes to room temperature.

Some flowers just like plain water and these include ageratum, calendula, cornflower, salvia, foxglove, candytuft, sweet pea, lythrum and geranium Some say the best time to cut flowers is in the morning or evening when the stems are full of water, but most authorities on the subject say the best time is in the afternoon when the sugar content is highest. Some kinds need special treatment before placing in water. After searing (holding end of stem over a gas or other flame for 25 seconds) place the following in warm water hollyhocks, Canterbury bells, platycodons. Place in cold water after searing poppies, poinsettia and members of the euphorbia family, and dahlias. No matter whether you use one or many flowers, make certain that there is ample water in the container at all times. If a preservative is used, it is not necessary to change the water Just add fresh, warm water daily to replenish that used by the flowers. Cut flowers will also last longer if they are kept out of strong sunlight or drafts.
