Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 1HE UTHflRIOGE KfRA'.O Frirfciy, Auguil YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. MH IIAK1.MAS DAISY MicliaiMmiUi daisies Iwluiig to Ihe Mler family ami arc ably termed perennial aster. They are natives of Europe, nnd North America. They ave very easily discovered in if you notice that the flowers arc" becoming smaller then it is time for them to IK separated, or you could cut out snme of Ihe'smaller shoots, tlnis limit- ing the number of stems in area. Tho Creeks called thorn the flower1 which Take young rooted shoots from the outside of the plant (not Ihe centre as these tend me-ms Hie star flower. The I to be weak ami olili in (lie flowers arc silicic, double and spring. The taller varieties semi double, up to indies in diameter, in an attractive raiific of colors. If planted early eiiuiigli, they will bloom Ihe first year. l-'or a fall blooming peren- nial, the micliaelmas daisies seem to fill a very important void as they bloom quite read- ily ia late August or early Sep- tember. Tney grow anywhere from four inches lo five feel, some being: tall ami others bciiifi of spreading habit. They are very easily grown, provid- ed lliey' are Riven ROW! drain., ase ar.d a sunny spot. These showy [lowers seem to becoming popular with many lieu' varieties and colors making their appearance. Tho dumps do not have to be split up for around three years, but should be slaked as they are nclincd lo bend over ar.d be- come unsightly when with a ittle staking wilh a bamboo cane they are very stately and attractive. The following varieties are attractive Aster novae aiiRliac (New England Aster' which grows four lo five feet and comes in white, pink red. blue, purple, depending or Ihe variety.

A lovely one (o the border or rock garden i A. aipinus, which grows inches liigh and has large vio- let-blue flowers. There arc others ar.d you might have our own favorite. The flowers like well eiilti- iled soil, free from weeds and hould be well watered. They ire only moderate feeders and ire inclined, with the least bit if over-feeding, to become a argo mass foliage with a small amount of bloom. 1'he daisies will seed very readily but do not seed true to orin and plants raised from self-sown seedlings are not loo choice. If yon have i friend or wighbour who lias some of Uiese delightful flowers in the garden, perhaps you can ob- i small piece and start a collection of your own. Mrs. W.

I have aivswcred this More, but for Ihose who miss- al it. it is better lo tie the leaves, rattier than breaking the mid-ribs of the leaves when bending over, because this tends lo prevent the flow of the sap, causing the flower lo be uneven and frothy.

This is a clear material in sheet form that is far sturdier than glass. Even if it should break it tines not shatter into flying small pieces but breaks into large dull-edge chunks. Because it does net shatter or crack Ihe way glass does it is even better than glass for the do-it-yourselfer to handle both easier and safer. Most of us, when we have to install a pane, lake the mea- surements to a hardware deal- er who cuts the glass to size. Plexiglas is available in a variety of thicknesses but fig- ure on using the 1-lOth-inch thickness for ordinary replace- ment of window glass and li- nen thickness for replacement of storm door sash without framing. A special cutting tool for ase on Plexiglas is available for about It is used as you a glass cutter, scoring the material using a straight- edge as a guide. The difference is that you score it more times, five or six times for the thin material, seven to 10 times for the quarter-inch stock. The material is covered with a protective coat of masking paper. Leave this on while cut- ting. Posilion the material over a dowel that runs the length of the scored line. The line should he up. Hold the sheet down with one land. With the other apply a downward pressure on the shoii side of the break. Move loth hands as you work along tho line. Installation for the thinner material is the same as for glass. Clean out all old putty, glass fragments and glazier points. Place TI Ihin coating of glaz- ing compound on the inside edge of the Remove the masking paper from the Plcxiglas, press the material in place. Drive in new glazier points, then apply glazing com- pound as you would for any window. Tor direct Installation In storm doors, use quarter-inch material and cut to the size of :hc opening, not the size of the old frame which held the glass. Take l-32r.d of an inch off of each dimension to allow for ex- pansion (measure all panes that Then place the new material directly in the open- ing, tightening the clips just as you would for tho Irame.
