FALL BULBS By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. is nothing as re- freshing in the spring as the beautiful display put on by the tulips and daffodils, etc. with their rainbow of colors. September is the best time to plant bulbs. This gives them ample time to establish some root growth before freeze-up. In areas where the ground does not freeze until quite late in the fall, or if the weather stays mild for a longer than normal period your planting can be de- layed even up to the end of October, but remember, as stated above, when bulbs de- velop a good root system they will go through the winter in much better condition. After purchasing the bulbs they may be refrigerated from 4 to 6 weeks at about 40 degrees F. Avoid "extra ordinary bar- gains" as these bulbs are often too small to bloom the first spring. After you decide what you want, purchase your re- quirements from a reputable dealer. All bulbs require a well- drained soil. Dig some well-rot- ted manure into the bottom of the trench or holes, making sure it does not come in con- tact with the bulbs. Add some peat moss and sand if the earth is heavy. When I plant bulbs of any kind I like to put a layer of coarse sand in the bottom of the hole, which helps to pre- vent rotting of the bulb. Tulips are planted about 6 to 8 inches deep and 6 inches apart in rows, but for a more striking effect, plant the bulbs in clumps, using all the same variety and color in each clump. Set the bulbs in the bot- tom of the holes at a slight angle (which also helps to pre- vent firming the soil well both below and above. Give a little water and nature will do the rest. Do not plant any bulbs too close to founda- tions, especially those facing south and west. Daffodils and hyacinths are planted 6 to 8 inches deep and 6 to 8 inches apart according to the size, and are most effec- tive in groups. These are best planted in early September so they will be well established before the cold weather sets in. They start to sprout very early in the spring and so a covering of straw or evergreen boughs, after freeze-up, will help to prevent too early growth in the spring. To keep tulip bulbs vigorous, they should be lifted every three to four years, otherwise they become crowded and the blooms d e t.e r i o r a t e. After blooming, do not cut the foliage until it has matured and turn- ed brown. Annuals may be planted in between the tulips to hide the withered foliage. After flowering apply a light feeding of 11-48-0 or a bulb fer- tilizer. Crocuses and grape hya- cinths are planted approxi- mately 3 inches deep and are lovely in a rock garden. The blue ot the grape hyacinths is most eye-catching, growing from 6 to 8 inches and bloom- ing in May and June. Scillas have bluebell-like flowers and also grow 0 to 8 inches, bloom- ing in April and May. There are several classes and varieties of the different bulbs, which are all listed in catalogues and which are too numerous to mention in this short article. Mrs. B.

They can be sep- arated now or in the spring. In fact, they can be moved when in full bloom without causing any HI effects. Mr. H. When can I apply the last fertilizer on my lawn? Ans. This should be done about the middie of August. If fertilizer is applied later than this it will stimulate too much growth making it more suscep- tible to winter-kill. Keep this in mind for next year. Any questions should be sent with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B St. N.W. Calgary 43. Float Plan Sensible For Boaters Filing a "float plan" by boat- ers is a very sensible idea be- ing popularized by a leading insurance company, Marine Of- fice Appleton and Cox Corp. This is like an aircraft pilot's flight plan. Before departure, the boat skipper lists destina- tion, cruising plan, estimated time of arrival and all other data. This is left with his dock official, a relative or friend. In case of trouble, the Coast Guard or other authorities can be notified and valuable time saved in a rescue search. MAIN INGREDIENT The main component of glass is silica. regular inspection and clean- ing. Even if you do not intend to paint this fall you may find that the gutters could stand a touch-up. And if you do plan to paint, getting the gutters out of the way now will make the large job go faster later on. Take along a wire brush to get rid of debris when you climb the ladder to begin your inspection. Use a screw driver to probe rust spots for sound- ness. Aside from leaves, you will find gutters cluttered with soot and grit washed down from the roof. Don't be surprised at a bird's nest as well. With the debris out of the way you will be able to see the metal underneath. If it is sound some fresh paint is all you need. If the metal is rusted, clean and sand it before painting. Use a wire brush for the big dirt, emery cloth for the final cleanup. Before painting give the sanded area a prime coat. Some people swear by old-fash- ioned red lead. The newer rust preventative paints have the advantage of being able to be used over a thin coat of rust so long as the metal is sound. No matter what kind of prim- er you use, get rid of all large flakes of rust and all dirt. Tiny holes or cracks in tire metal should be covered with asbestos roof coating after the metal has been primed. Larger openings should be patched. Materials for patches are many and can be found around the home roof felt, deck canvas, heavy aluminum :oil, glass fiber cloth arc exam- ples. First spread a coat of asbes- :os cement over the cleaned and primed area. Place the latching material over that. Spread more roofing cement over the patch, making certain you cover all the edges. If the rusted-out portion of he gutter makes a good size lole, use metal for the patch. Find the same material as the gutter is made of. Dissimilar metals, although rust proof, corrode. A chemical reac- ion occrs when the metals are placed together in the pres- ence of water. Corrosion also can occur rom using the wrong nails. Galvanized nails in alumin- um gutters, for example, will eventually lead to corrosion. Even if you are sure your utters are sound, give them a leriodic cleaning anyway. Wa- er will build up wherever there s debris. Eventually it spills iver, staining walls and ruin- ng foundation plantings. Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
