Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 3, 197) THI LITHMIDC1 HttAlO 23 HOME OF THE WEEK Home: 1020Sq.Ft, Garage: 289 Sq.R, Enjoy flowers ichen spring arrives Now's time to build window box By MR. HOMOGRAF CO. OF CANADA 40 JARVIS ST. TORONTO 'I, ONTARIO Please send me further details about how to obtain standard builder blueprints for Design No. CH-189 Or enclosed please find for which send me the new Design Book entitled "Third Edition-Subur- ban and Country Homes Designed For Canadians. NAME ADDRESS (Left.) Beauty and efficiency are combined in this attractive home to make it one of our most popular designs. The floor plan includes a spacious living room with fireplace, large built- in book shelves, and a nice dining room with access to the veranda. Of particular interest to the housewife is the large combined kitchen with snack bar, and convenient access to all areas of the house. Con- struction as shown is brick ve- neer with wood accent but blue- prints include complete con- struction details for building in all brick or all frame. Certain houses benefit by the addition of a window box or two filled with flowers. If yours is one of them, getting a box ready now before warm weath- er arrives is an easy project. Window boxes can be hung at front or side windows or ga- rage windows. They can also be used to decorate the sides of steps leading to a front or side door. Patterns are available from mail order companies and at most lumberyards. S'nce any pattern would have to be ad- justed for your window size anyway, you might just design your own. Window boxes should be about eight inches deep, about six inches wide at the bottom and a little wider at the top. Use wood that will withstam weather (redwood and cypress are Oak and pine can be used if suitably finished. Pre- vent rotting by treating with a wood preservative. Use preservatives carefully Some cannot be painted over sir.ce they will bleed through These will require sealing wit aluminum paint or shellai Some preservatives impar their own color to the finish Bead labels carefully an check with the dealer. A good natural finish in volves several applications boiled linseed oil. Allow it soak in for several hours b ore wiping off. Repeat several imes, allowing a day in be- ween. Spar varnish is a good but more expensive finish for wood sed outdoors. Of course, you may simply want to paint the bos to match the house of trim. When you put the box to gether, combine naiU and glue for sturdy construction. Better yet are wood screws. You can add to the per- manence of the box by with sheet metal. This ako Uows you to plant right in the You may find it more practi- al to fill the box with potted ants. Not only is this easier nd less it also allows or a variety of blooms hroughout the season. Provide drain holes in the wttom of the box one in ach corner and another in the liddle. Set the pots in peat loss inside the box. You can add decorative ouches by applying precut molding strips and painting lem a different color. A window box needs plenty of support. If you want to asten the box to the wall with crews, recess the bottom of he box so that it is an inch u'gher than the back and sides. Mil holes at top and bottom or screws. If you use angle irons, build I the bottom flush with the sides. If the bottom is recessed, cut Sine lower edge wherever I put an angle iron so that it can go up against the bottom of the i box. Use two-inch or larger I angle irons. (Newspaper Enterprise assn.)

Young, F.R.H.S. STARTING ANNUAL CLIMBERS CLIMBING VJ Urtfll ct ______ make ideal screens, for privacy, to cover undesirable features or hide objectionable views. They also soften the outline of a house and protect a wall from heat or cold. Some may be used as ground covers and others are very showy trained over an archway. Of the annual climbers that I have grown I think Cobaea gcandens (Cathedral Bells) or Cup-and-Saucer vine is one of the most beautiful. It has 1 to Vk inch bell-shaped flowers, which are green until fully opened when they turn a purplish-blue from July to Oc- tober. There is also a white variety. Although grown as a perennial in warmer areas it is treated here as a half-hardy annual. It grows quite rapidly, reaching a height of approxi- mately 20 feet. This will bloom all summer if started early. I planted the seed on January 30 and the first ones emerged February 12. When sowing, lay the seeds on edge to reduce rot- ting. The nice feature about this plant is it has no enemies. Plant outside after danger of frost is over in a sheltered posi- tion in either sun or semi- shade. D, T and M, P, U, (See Another p e r e n nial cumber grown here as a half-hardy annual is Quamoclit lobata (also known as Ipomaea versi- color and Mina This produces rosy-crimson flowers, changing to orange and then yellow. The seeds for this were also sown on January 30. Some had germinated by February 2. Plant outside in a warm, sun- ny spot as soon as weather permits.

Eccremocurpus Scaber Chilean Glory Vine) has sprays of showy orange-red, ibular flowers, with attrac- tive, airy foliage. As this is or- inarily a perennial, but ;rown here as a half-hardy an- ual, it should be started in to produce blooms uring the summer. This plant may be used'in hanging bas- tets or grown outside in a sun- ny, sheltered spot in well- drained soil. P.U. If you want a conversation piece in your garden grow the tlarble Vine, a half-hardy an- nual. The apple-green berries about the size of a marble have white stripes changing to am- and cream. This should be started fairly early in the spring. I do not have too much nformation on this, so if any readers try this you might let me know how you make out. The seed is available from Geo. K. Park, at 25 seeds for 35 cents. This is the only catalog- ue I have that lists may be others. Thunbergia (Black-eye Susan) Alata mixed is one I like to grow every year. This is suitable for hanging bas- kets, tubs, window boxes, as a ground cover, etc. in a warm, sheltered place. This has very attractive flowers in colors of yellow, orange, buff, white, cream, with black centres and blooms all summer, P, S, T and M, B. Then we have the ever popu- lar nasturtiums, which are easily grown and bloom until frost. These are excellent for a dry, sunny situation where the .soil is poor. A rich soil means too much foliage. They will bloom in about 50 days from seeding. The tall or climbing is the variety to use for walls, fences, window boxes, etc. Available at most seed outlets. Morning Glories (Ipomea purpurca) are easy to grow climbers and flower over a long period in a sunny, shelter- ed position. There are many lovely colors and forms to choose from. Early Call is one of the newest. It is extremely early, with four inch flowers and the color is clear rose with a white throat. Last but not least is the well-known and ever popular sweet pea, which needs no introduction. Avail- able at seed outlets. (Reference: D Dominion Seed House; T and Thompson and Morgan; Gco. W.
