NAME ADDRESS (PIMM Print) LETH. By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. This week and next, I would like to pass on to you a few suggestions about keeping your Christmas gift plants as healthy as possible. Although I have commented on most of them, there are people that keep asking over and over again for this information, By V- UaHTWflSHT BRICKS FROM VOLCANIC UVA IMPORT- EO FROM ITALY, ARE NOW 'AVAILABLE FOR OUTDOOR INDOOR. SONS. SPECIAL HANGERS SUPPORT SPACED AND ALIGNED... mostly young people just starting out, learning about, plants. One plant in particular seems to be gaining in pop- ularity over the last while and this is the Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria which looks something like a miniature Christmas tree, with its branches in symmetrical Whorls. It is the aristocrat of. potted evergreens, and being a slow grower, it is ideal for apart- ment dwellers and others who haven't the space for larger plants. In a conservatory it will grow several feet in height, like the beautiful one at the Calgary zoo. If the plant gets too tall, it may be held in check by reducing the top. For a centre piece on a buffet or table, this is an ex- cellent choice for anyone who wants something "alive" to add to the decor. Some people call this delightful plant the "Christmas Tree Plant" but its actual name is derived from the place where it was first found Norfolk Island, in the southwest "Pacific. For those to whom this plant is new, it is quite formal in appearance with tiers of symmetrical, almost feathery like branches, with soft overlapping needles. The nice feature about this plant is that it will grow in either a sunny or shady location and will even tolerate fluctuations in the room temperature, but does best if you can provide it with something between 50 and 60 degrees F. Do not overwater, just keep the soil evenly moist. I like to see them growing on their own so the plant may be turned around occasionally to keep the branches in proportion, es- pecially when new growth appears. There are not too many problems with regard to this attractive plant. Sometimes there could be dropping or yellowing of the needles and this is usually caused by a draught from either a window or door or perhaps too much heat from a furnace register or even a fireplace. I mention- ed abojit keeping the soil even- ly moist, but if the soil is ACT {Mirt of Trans-Canada System CHRISTMAS LONG DISTANCE RUSH PHONE BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S REMEMBER TOO: MOST LONG DISTANCE RATES ARE LOWER 6 PJi. DAILY AND ALL DAY SUNDAY WHEN YOU DIAL YOUR OWN CALL OR CALL STATION-TO-STATION. More lines... more convenience when long distance calls are spaced over the festive season. Too many people have the same nice idea on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Circuits get overloaded, calls are delayed. Why spend The Day waiting around to complete your call? It'll mean just as much (and be lots easier) later in the festive week. (The times when lines are loaded and delays occur are: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's.) Make your festive long distance calls easier -on us and on yourself! 1. Make a Ust now of phone numbers including area codes of those you plan to call. 2. To obtain numbers within Alberta which you don't know, dial 1 -I- 555-1212. 3. For out-of-province numbers, dial 1 area code -I- 555-1212. Just tell the Operator the name of the place and the name of the people you wish to call. 4. Whenever possible, dial your calls direct! Happy Holidays! allowed to dry out on too many occasions, there again you could run into trouble with damaged foliage. I have sometimes been ask- ed if a person could take cut- tings from a Norfolk Island Pine to start new plants. On talking with some professionals, they even have trouble with this process. You have to take the tip if a well formed plant is to be ex- pected, because cuttings from the other branches never seem to attain a nicely shaped plant. This is sometimes a slow process, and disap- pointments often occur. A good potting mixture con- sists of equal parts of loam, sand and peat moss or leaf mold or you can use two thirds loam and one third peat moss plus a little sand.

Lacquer protects metal fixtures Metal hardware always looks good in a new kitchen or bathroom, on new furniture and in hardware store dis- plays. Hinges, knobs, pulls and catches of metal are both attractive and durable. But some of that attractiveness fades in time. Metal pieces lose their luster and may tarnish in time. Some are more durable than others and some are easier to clean than others. A few will pit and corrode if not taken care of right from the start. Some will be ruined by improper cleaning, even los- ing the exterior coating that made them so attractive in the first place. A wide variety of metal polishes is available and a good hardware store will carry most of them. A metal polish generally consists of a solvent and a mild abrasive. The solvent dissolves the ox- ides that form on metal sur- faces. The abrasive is there for polishing. These are mild polishes generally and are to be preferred because they do the least damage to the metal. But a mild polish is only effec- tive before tarnish becomes too thick and heavy. Although the polish may be mild, use it sparingly, especially on plated metals. Frequent polishing eventually wears through the" plating. To avoid this problem with plated surfaces give them a protective coating while still new and clean. A coat of clear lacquer lasts indefinitely and the surfaces can be wiped off with no damage to the plating. Apply lacquer only to a clean surface. Use a mild polish that will not scratch to remove all dirt and tarnish. Wipe with a rag dipped in denatured alcohol to remove all traces of polish. Then polish with a dry cloth. fF POSSIBLE REMOVE HARDWARE CLEAN WITH METAL POLISH REMOVE POLISH WITH ALCOHOL APPLY TWO OF CLEAR LACQUER ;
