Toronto Star Syndicate) Your garden By IsabelleR. Young, F.R.H.S. CHARMING PETUNIAS! Polls have been taken to determine the most popular of all annuals and the Petunias is right at the top of the list. What makes this flower so popular? It is easy to grow, it can stand any amount of trimming, it has such a wide range ' of colors and it has such a long season of bloom. All in all, it is a most beautiful and charming flower. Petunias belong to the potato of nightshade family, which includes the potato, tomato, tobasco, pepper and eggplant. The flowers include browallia, angel's trumpet, winter cherry, nicotiana, schizanthus and, of course, the Petunia. The family comprises over 2,000 species, mostly trees and shrubs, many uf which contain a dangerously poison juice which is used in narcotics and medicines. The reason I am writing about Petunias at this time is for those who wish to grow their own plants from seed. They should be started around the middle of February for the double varieties and the others about three weeks later. The double Fl hybrids and the large flowering types are slower to germinate than the single multiflora and gran-diflora ones. Seed houses do appreciate getting your orders early as they are able to give you better service as some of the popular varieties are quickly sold out. In my opinion, I think the greatest progress among annuals has been made with Petunias, because there are so many varieties, types and colors. Perhaps you wonder why there seems to be so few seeds" in a package. There really are quite a few if you could count them, but they are so fine - roughly, there are a quarter of a niillion seeds in 1 ounce. Some are extremely expen-. sive. Take for instance Red Baron, a new Fl Hybrid Gran-diflora that made its appearance last year. The seed for this cost around $675 for 1 ounce, but it is worth . every penny of that because the Fl hybrids are very vigorous growers. Petunias are actually half-hardy perennials, but are grown here as annuals. They are native of South America and adapt themselves to almost every climate. They flower from early summer to frost and come in almost every conceivable color in a variety of shapes and sizes - plain, ruffled or fringed. There are several typies of Petunias such as - single Fl Multifloras which have a great number of two or three inch flowers, on 8 to 18 inch stems, that completely cover the plants. These are very showy in beds and borders. Single Fl Grandifloras grow 10 to 18 inches and have large, ruffled or fringed flowers around three to five inches in diameter and are quite early and free flowering and make a lovely showing in pots, window boxes and bedding. Double Multiflora Petunias have fully double, ZVz to 3 inch flowers which remain neater in adverse weather than the giant doubles. Double Grandifloras are extra large, fringed and some are nicely scented and are ideal for pots, window boxes, beds, borders or for accent plants. The Cascade type petunias are very useful in hanging baskets as they are quite vigorous and withstand heavy rain better than some varieties. Petunias may also be used for bouquets in the house or on balconies that receive a certain amount Keep ceramic of sun. While these flowers do best in full sun, they will grow in semi-shade provided the conditions are suitable, that is - a well drained, light and moderately rich soil. If you raise your own plants, when they are four inches high, pinch back to produce stockier plants. They have a very shallow root system so water flats or baskets thoroughly two hours before setting out in the garden to give them a good start. HINT: Annuals always come to the rescue to perk up a drab garden. Some of the new varieties available show a great deal of promise sc why not try one or two this ye;ar, PETUNIAS or others. You only learn by trial and error. NOTE: There is a service charge of 25 cents if readers wish a personal answer to their gardening problems. The address is Mrs. Isabelle R.

Yet the question constantly comes up, "How do you keep it clean?" Hard water film and soap film, which will form on any surface, are easy to remove from ceramic tile. Mildew is best avoided by good ventilation but can be bleached out. So let's deal with "how." In cleaning procedures there are two surfaces to be dealt with, one is the tile itself, the other the grout which is the material filling the spaces between the tiles. The grout requires special attention. Most tile installations have a cement grout, though within the last two years American Glean Tile Company has introduced a silicone rubber grouted tile system. Routine cleaning for cement grouted tile walls requires only wiping down with a household ammonia. Floors should be swept or vacuumed, then washed with a detergent solution, making sure to finish up with clean water. Wipe dry. This will keep the tile and grout sparkling clean. Never wax tile. Regular maintenance is the best way. Just as you never let your carpet get very soiled, your tile wall or floor should not be permitted to become very soiled. If, however, you are faced with major housecleaning, mix a strong solution of a cleaner and rub vigorously with a brush. To cleach out stains apply a V4"-thick paste of a bleaching cleanser, for white grout, or a non-bleaching cleanser (Bon-Ami) for colored grouts. Scrub with a brush after 24 hours. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a cloth. Silicone rubber grouts which are highly stain - and mildew-resistant '"dually need only washing. Check carefully for cracks in cement grouts. Tlmugb the silicone rubber grouts w 11 not crack out, conventional grouts will. If this happens, moisture may penetrate to the un-derlayment and if the tile is set on gypsum wallboard the tiles may fall off the wall. The Herald At Home Welcome birds to your yard By DONALD R. BRANN Despite massive warnings concerning the destructive changes that have already thrown our natural resources out of whack, relatively few people realize how strongly our lives are dependent on those of the birds, bees and even skunks. Last year entire countries were infested with an invasion of caterpillars that stripped trees of their leaves and covered shrubs with a webbing that destroyed the plants. Houses, bushes and branches transformed some of the nation's richest communities into what appeared to be a movie setting for "Toba'tco Road" or the dust bowl of the thirties. The ecologists tell us the imbalance in bird and wild life was one factor that allowed this condition to develop. A second spring of the same infestation, they warned, would destroy all tree life in the area. If only one'fiftieth of the billions spent on welfare were directed towards increasing our natural resources, we could help more birds, bees and wildlife continue to do the job nature needs done. Bird feeders and houses provide two ways every homeowner can help the birds in their neighborhood feel welcome. A new book that explains how to build four different bird houses and two different bird feeders is now available. The construction of each is so simplified, everyone from a six year old to a senior citizen can build them. Full size patterns of important parts so simplify construction, these projects are ideal in teaching the "slow to learn" how to work with their hands. Send $1.50 in cheque or money order for Book No. 669, How to Build Birdhouses and Bird Feeders to Carpentry Department, The Lethbridge Herald, P.O. Box 4090, Station A, Toronto, Ontario, M5E 1E6.
