Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 20, 1974 THE UETHBBIDGE HERALD 23 HOME OF THE WEEK Your Garden Caring for cut flowers DESIGN R3-804 Sq. Ft. A split level rear entrance that provides easy access to the basem nt, garage and the extra washroom, is only one of several interesting features of this week's house. The kitchen, being at a slightly higher elevation, is protected from cold air when the back door is opened. The bathroom is extra large and the hall is designed to use the least possible space but it still gives easy access to all bedrooms. The design is for brick veneer with wood accents, but instructions for building in all -frame are included with the. plans. The design is suited to any type of heating and the basic rectangular floor plan should allow it to be built for a minimum cost per square foot. -The Herald At Home ss-o DESIGN CM-6Q.4 Houst-i45o GAIAGE-24O SQPT. By ISABELLE R. YOUNG F.R.H.S. When flowers are received from the florist their stems should be recut before they are arranged. If you are pressed for time, all flowers may be placed in deep, warm water for at least three hours to condition them. Warm water moves more freely into the stems of flowers. Put in a cool place, out of drafts, until the water comes to room temperature. There are f.ome exceptions, however, to the warm water conditioning rule. Flowers that exude a milky sap when cut are best when placed in cold water (after searing in a flame for twenty five to thir- ty seconds to seal up the for several hours preferably overnight. The poinsettia ;alls into this category. Ma te certain you do not let any of the sap come in contact with a scratch or cut as it is poisonous. After the soaking period the stems may be cut to any desired length and arranged alone or with other plant material. Many people believe that cutting flower stems on a slant will help them take up water better, but experiments have shown this is not so. It does, however, prevent the stems from becoming clogged with dirt, etc. as they do not rest squarely on the bottom of the container. A good sharp knife provides the best cutting tool. As not all flowers require the same treatment, it is im- portant to know what to do for the different ones to prolong their lasting quality as long as possible. Plants with woody stems such as the chrysanthemum should be hammered or crushed for about one inch up from the cut end. Carnations are another favorite around the holiday season for bouquets or arrangements. To give long lasting beauty to your design, recut the stems after receiv- ing and if the flowers seem at all wilted, place in deep, warm water in a cool dark place until the water comes to room temperature. The following conditioner may be used: one tbsp. sugar, two tbsps. white vinegar to one quart of water, adding a capful or half tsp. of liquid bleach. This prevents the growth of yeast and bacteria in the sugar solution without harming the blooms. Roses may also be treated the same as carnations, except their stems should be crushed or scraped for one inch from the cut end. The vinegar sugar solution is quite good for roses because it helps to prevent petal drop. When conditioning flowers do not get any water on the petals, such as roses, for they will tend to spot. Also, be careful not to damage the leaves by overcrowding in containers. Holly will keep quite well in just plain water, but may be conditioned in one quart of warm water plus one tbsp. of glycerine, for twenty four hours. The Christmas spirit is the act of giving whether we give a gay package or a prayer to bless a friend. It should not only be the 25th day of December, but it should be every day of the year. With these thoughts I'd like to wish you all the merriest Christ- mas ever and the best of health, happiness and prosperity for 1975. Sun-warmed houses Solar energy has come into its own with these two designs selected in the Owens-Corning Fiber- glass Corp. annual contest. The design by the University of Nevada, top, features a foot solar collector on a saw-topped roof. Water running through the collector is heated and stored in tanks. The Science Museum of Virginia's deing, lower, features a severely-angled roof with a foot solar collector.

Not to mention that a fireplace adds considerable value to a home. To most people a fireplace is no orindary improvement, it is a dream come true, at only Book No. 674, How To In- stall A Fireplace, in 240 pages and 360 step by step il- lustrations explains how an unskilled homeowner can in- stall a radiant heat, hot air circulating, masonary or free standing fireplace entirely within a room, on an wall, or halfway between two rooms. Every step from selecting the most advantageous loca- tion to installing the necessary framing for an out- side wall installation, to runn- ing a prefab chimney within the house, or outside in an enclosure is explained and il- lustrated. How To Install A Fireplace is a nuts and bolts type of book. It doesn't con the reader with hundreds of pretty fireplace pictures, then provide a few pages on how a pro makes an installation. The book assumes the reader doesn't know anything. It ex- plains and illustrates every step and detail making a professional quality, code approved installation.

In their natural state, varying types have varying preferences, but taken as a group, turtles have about as wide and diverse appetites as can be found in any living creature. Some turtles are car- nivorous. They eat nothing but insects or any other form of animal life they can get their teeth into. Others will eat just about anything humans will eat plus anything else that is edible. And some are strictly vegetarian. In fact, few foods are on the prohibited list for turtle pets. One thing that is proscribed is fat. Pork and fat meats are not good for them. Most turtles which are ac- quired as pets are either water turtles or semi aquatic types. Some have been kept in the same tanks as fishes but this is a risky step for the fish. Most pet turtles would con- sider a Guppy as nothing more than a good, square meal.
