YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. CHRISTMAS GUT PLANTS ALTHOUGH 1 have written about poinsettias before, owing to Hie number of ques- tions 1 receive about this plant, 1 would like to make a lew comments. The poinseltia. 1 Iliink, is still one of the most popular of all Christmas plants, staying in bloom long- er, perhaps, than any other re- ceived at this time of year. A native of Mexico, it is truly a very beautiful plant. When pur- chasing one, make certain you choose one that is compact, with green [oliagc right down the stem lo Ihe soil line. If the buttons (flowers) in the centre of the plant have start- ed to develop on small stems, or are spreading apart or arc producing pollen, then il is not a first-class specimen. The colorful leaf-like bracts of scar- let, pink or creamy-white arc not the flowers, actually they are r a f. h e r insignificant, look- ing, growing in the centre of the bracts (the colored leaves I. The poinseltia is quite easy to keep healthy. Give the plant a bright, sunny location away from draughts, in a day tem- perature of 70 degrees F. and 60 degrees F. at night. Do nol let the planl dry out. as l.his could cause yellowing and dropping of leaves. With the in- troduction of the newer varie- ties it is possible to have a poinscttia blooming up until June or longer. The ftlikkclson falls into this category and is a great improvement over the older types, but I think the Haigh poinsettias are even bet- ter as they are very long-last- ing and much bushier. After the leaves lose their coloring and flowering has ceased, cut part way back and give less water, keeping in a tempera- ture of 45 to 50 degrees F. Around mid-June put out in the garden and water and fertilize. When growth starts again pinch off lhe ends of branches to make plant bush out. Bring in before a frost and give lots of light in a temperature of 65 degrees F. To have these plants flowering as close to Christmas as possible, start about, the middle of September and supply an extra 2 hours of artificial light by suspending a W. bulb 30 indies above the plant, doing this until the end of September.

After this, give no extra artificial light as the buds are now forming. Before you turn the lights on at night, put your plant away in a dark- cupboard, making sure that not even a flashlight, street light, car light, etc. can get to il, as they are extremely sensitive to light. The Christmas Cherry or Jerusalem Cherry is a semi woody plant with bright red or orange berries in the fall. I has shiny, dark green leaves and the small white flowers during the summer are quite pretty'. Tl requires a tempera lure of 65 degrees F. in a sunn} spot, otherwise leaf-drop coulc occur. Do not let dry oul a any time as this could cause the berries to drop off. Some lime in February, prune back lo within 3 inches of the main stem and mist, over abou' twice a day to help shoots form. It requires to be put oul doors in June to help flowers and berries to set. Before frost, bring in and grow as be- fore. Among the coleus (very cot orful foliage plants) there i; Ceolcus 'C h r i s I m a s Cheer which bas wine-red leaves edged with yellow-green. Pinch ends of branches lo keep pain! bushy. Grow in fidl sun and water when earth feels dn lo the touch. Capsicum or rted Pepper Plant is rather an attractive plant with while, star-shaped flowers, followed by miniature peppers of green, which turn yellow or red when ripe. These require full sun and moderate- ly moist soil. If conditions arc too hot, the fruit will drop. The most popular variety is C frutcsccns 'Christmas Candle' growing 24 inches with to red fruit. Tills is just, ar annual, lasting for one season but they arc easily grown and make nice plants. Seed is sown in the spring. At. this time of Ihe year you can probabK chase one from a florist greenhouse. Norfolk Island Pine or Arawaria cxcelsa an evergreen house plant of 20 to <15 inches tall, of slow growth, and looks like a miniature Christmas tree. A temperature of 60 degrees F. is ideal in ei- ther hrighl light or less light. Fertilize once a month and put out-side in summer.

FIX W h e t h e r you have your Christmas decorations up al- ready or you are waiting until the last minute, remember to exercise a little care so thai all the charm and color of holi- day lights arc not marred by dangerous overloading, short circuits or other hazards. Strings of lights used in pre- vious years should be checked over carefully. Look for signs of wear in the insulation, for breaks and for loose connec- tions. Plug in each string and Si then test the cord by bending and moving it. Hidden breaks or faulty connections will show up by causing the lights to flicker. This may seem obvious but make certain that every socket has a bulb in it. Empty sockets become a hazard once the string is plugged in. If you plan to decorate the outside of your house or yard use only light strings and cx- lension cords designed for out- i door use. The sockets on out- door light strings have gaskets around the base, of each bulb to keep out moisture. Cords arc generally heavier, will with- stand extremes in tempera- tures and have weatherproof connections. When you make connections outdoors wrap Ihe connection with plastic electrical tape to keep out moisture. The tape also will keep the connections from pulling apart. If you arc fastening strings of lights to the house do not hang the wire directly on hooks or nails. Suspend the wire by using tape or string to prevent the. wire from rubbing against the hooks. With constant move- ment in the wind, insulation will be worn away if you don't do this. Outdoor lights should be plugged inlo weatherproof out- lets. If you don't have these, plug inlo an outdoor light fix run In mokinc I h c anfuinn spawning run np the Fraser River in British Columbia, sat mon cover the 300 miles in 18 days, traveling about 17 miles a dav RlfJHT-WING WAFFLE Mitiiarl 1.avion, JR. of Mont- real calls for reinstatement of the death penally .it t.ie Conservative party policy convention.

If you must run an exten- sion indoors choose the garage first, then the basement, then the living area. Remember, you cannot close a window down tight on an electric cord without damaging it. Better to drill a hole through a narrow board, and place the Iward in the window, running the wire through the hole. Indoors or out, be careful not to run too many lights off a single circuit. The average 15- amp circuit can cany a load of about I.CiX) watts. A '20-amp circuit can handle about 2.-101) waits, if divided through two or more outlets. Multiply the number of bulbs by the waits for each and yon will know if you are exceeding the load limit. (Don't forget to include other h'ghls on the same circuit.) The small bulb used in most strings draws about GVi watts. If you arc using floodlights or spotlights remember that each draws 150 watts.
