Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK I YOUR GARDEN By habelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS T have written, in detail, about Christmas plants on otter occasions, so this tirne I win just give a few hints U> re- fresh your memory. Of all the gifts plants that ore receives at this time of the year, I think the most popu- lar is UK Poiawttia. It is BO attractive v.ith Its pink, scar- let and creamy-white bracts, which stem to stay on the plant (or weeks. The flower itself is rather insignificant looking, in the centre of the bracts. One of the main requis- ites for a healthy plant is to kesp it rat of draughts because a temperature results in too' little bloom. Thc-se are very thirsty plants so water fre- quently, every day if noce-ssary and keep in filtered sunlight. The pink, red and white of the cyclamen are much admir- ed and if kept in a cool day temperature of around GO to 65 degrees F. and at night SO to 55 degrees F. they will bloom for six to eight weeks, other- wise, in warmer temperatures, they are not as successful and last only about a couple oi weeks. The leaves will also yel- low under warm conditions. Give ample moisture, but avoid getting the crown wet or rot could be caused by over-water- ing, especially when the plant is coming into bud. Exposure to draughts is also a factor to lake into consideration. The Christ- mas Cherry or Jerusalem Cher- ry requires cool, (not above Co degrees F.) airy conditions if the berries are to remain on the plant for a long time. Do not over-water or the foliage will turn yellow and drop, along with the berries. If you have children around keep tie plant out of their reach as the ber- ries are poisonous. If given the right conditions, this semi- FrWoy, Dettmbtr It, 197J THE tHHBBlDCE HEPAID J7 Two car garage is easy to build H you've got the gardtsiing tools ;Sdy home with its yellow or red age is far better than a angle foj.
