CULTIVATION AND MULCHING While people are still going on perhaps it would be a good time to coLsider some ways of reducing work while you are away and when you come back. One way to cut down on weed- ing and watering is to cultivate and mulch your garden. Deep cultivation is not necessary because some plants are rath- er so this could prove harmful. Some people use a scuffle or Dutch hoe and find them very successful. With one of these you can go over a garden quite elimina- ting most of the and pulling the odd ones out that get between plants. Mulching is another way of keeping down weeds and con- serving moisture. It also pre- vents rain from beating down and packing the soil and pre- vents erosion by water. It keeps the roots of plants cooler dur- ing the day and warmer at this is very considering the kind of weather we have during the summer. Quite a number of materials may be used for mulching. Peat moss is probably one of the best and is readily available. Lawn clippings are also good provided the grass has been allowed to dry somewhat be- fore being and it is free from weed seed. If saw- wood lawn clip- hay or straw are used as a it should be mixed with a high nitrogen fertilizer so that on rotting it does not temporarily rob the garden Use spare time to make signs By DONALD R.

The bacteria that results in the breakdown of these mater- ials require nitrogen to carry out their and if this is not furnished in some the bacteria will rob the plants of nitrogen that is necessary for their growth. This loss is only temporary and eventually the nitrogen is returned to the soil Another material that may be used as a mulch is which comes in white or green Many people use this around trees and or around patios and cov- ering it with crushed eith- er the white or or bark which are also very at- tractive looking If you are troubled with slugs it might be an idea to spray or dust the soil with metalde- or use slug bait or pel- lets underneath mulches such as peat etc. If this is not Che mulch may form a very good hiding place for these pests during hot days Another advantage of mulches is that it keeps low- lying fruit and flowers clean.

Is there some special kind of treatment I need to give Ans. Gardenias are really not too satisfactory a plant for the house as they need very high humidity. You can supply some of this by standing the plant on a saucer of moist gra- vel and misting over with a fine spray. They are also acid so to provide this re- quisite apply 1 tsp. of vinegar to 1 qt. of water every week or along with 20-20-20 fertiliz- er. One of the worst pests of Gerdenias is mealy bugs. They can either be taken off by spraying with or using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol or using a house plant epraj for this DUTDose. 4 tugviT HtKALD Make a thorough inspection Check wear and tear on your garage By MR. FIX During warm weather your garage stands bikes parked in the open door. In the winter your auto stands in the closed ice on its underside melting and depositing a com- binabon of dirt and even salt. A garage takes a great deal of if it's a free- standing'frame garage it is less able to take the wear and tear than your house. You can help it last for with regular inspection and routine maintenance. Choose a dry day to thoroughly inspect your garage. Open the doors and windows to help it dry out and air out. Start by cleaning out the gar- age. You intended to remember. With the clutter and dirt out of the start check- ing from the floor up. Use a pocket knife or screw driver to probe the bottom boards all around. Replace any siding that is warped or rotted. If rotting is a look for signs of poor drainage. If puddles of waiter sub- merging the lower try regrading the land. You may be able to build it up with bricks or blocks Adding a gutter and a down- spout with a splash board will carry much of the water away that now runs off the roof. Around the inside of the gar- age check the base plate. Look for water stains on the floor showing that water has been seeping in. Look for cracks be- tween siding boards. Calk around the base plate and ev- erywhere on the siding where you can see daylight coming through. Snow and especially when will seep in under the door. You can pre- vent this by tacking a special rubber weatherstripping to the bottom of the door. It is made especially for overhead doors. If you have an old length of garden hose you are about to throw sbt It and nail it to the bottom of the door. If only the outside of the door is treat the inside and the base with linseed oil. It's not a bad idea to paint the inside of your garage. It will aid appearance and make the wood last longer. With the floor swept and hos- ed down you can go to work on oil and grease stains Fresh oil should be taken up with an ab- sorbent powder fine dry cement. Stains can be cleaned In a variety of ways. Easiest Is the use of commercial solvents sold in auto parts departments. These are degreasing agents for cleaning garage floors and even oar engines. They are allowed to stand for a time and then wash- ed off with clear water. Stains also can be cleaned with such household cleaners as trisodium phosphate. Use a quarter pound to a gallon of hot water. An old remedy for stubborn stains is a paste of lye and saw- dust with a small amount of water. Apply let dry and hose off. This as pretty caustic stuff so work wear rubber gloves and keep the youngsters away.
