NAME ADDRESS f I -TIJ 327 J THOSE DELIGHTFUL MINIATURES I couldn't let the summer go by without commenting on Min- iature Roses, those charming little replicas of hybrid Teas and Floribundas. A true rose, they originally came from China, and grow approximate- ly 4 to 12 inches in height. They have tiny leaves, min- ute thorns and the buds are about the size of a grain of wheat. Some of tie flowers, when fully open, fit inside a thimble and others are about the size of a quarter. They are well adapted to pots, beds, rock gardens, borders, edgings, for greenhouse and indoor use and bloom almost continuously all summer. While they are small and delicate looking, they are quite hardy and winter very well outdoors. Some varieties are also pleasantly scented. As a cut flower, they are long lasting and for corsages, they are excellent. These little "gems" are be- coming more and more popular. We have quite a display in our rose show in Calgary, and last week I had the pleasure of at- tending the Spokane Rose Show, with many outstanding exhibits of miniatures. They were a source of pleasure to young and old alike. I think that once you grow them, you will not be without them and will want to add new ones each year to your collection. Be- sides the little bushes, there are cumbers and standard or tree roses. For bedding pur- poses, plant 9 inches apart, in a sunny spot, in a soil as for hybrid teas, etc, one that is well drained and moderately rich and in a location that is protected from strong winds. When growing in pots, use a compost of equal parts of loam, peat moss, sand and well-rott- ed A five to seven inch pot (depending on the size of the plant) is satisfactory for these roses. Plastic pots are preferred by some as they do not dry out quite as quickly as the clay. You can leave the pots outside on the patio or rther parts of the garden dur- ing the summer, but before winter sets in, they should be taken out of the pots and plant- ed in the garden. If used in- doors, place in the sunniest win- dow or grow under fluorescent lights. If the plants become too lanky, which they sometimes do, cut back to about 3 inches above soil level. They soon make a quick comeback and send out new leaf and bud growth. Roses do best if given ade- quate humidity, which is sup- plied by placing on a saucer of moist pebbles, peat moss or coarse sand. This also helps to cut down on spider mite infes- tation. Keep the plants moist, but not overly wet and feed twice a month with a soluble fertilizer or one specially put out for roses, used according to directions on container. If spider mites appear, spray with Kelthane, Mazinon, Isotox or other chemicals for this pur- pose. This is usually caused if grown under conditions with high temperatures and low hu- midity. If growing outdoors; during the summer and you wish to bring them in later on, leave outside in a sheltered spot to rest until about the end of December. Bring them in, cut down the plants to 3 inches, spray and then fertilize and place in a sunny window or under fluorescent lights. The Calgary Rose Society will be holding its first Annual Rose Show in the Chinook Mall, Woodwards, on July 27 and 28, with many beautiful trophies and ribbons to be won. This show is open to all who wish to exhibit There are classes for Hybrid Teas, Flor- ibunda or Polyanthas, Grandi- floras, Miniatures, Shrub, Ar- rangements, Corsages, etc. En- tries will be received from p.m. to p.m. Friday, July 27. This is an opportunity to show others what you can do and also give them the plea- sure of your efforts. For furth- er information, contact Dave Coulter, 1216 2nd St. N.W., Mrs. J. Enns, 3224 Morley Trail NW, or Mrs. A. Walters, 1MO 45th St. S.W. Calgary. Try picnicking in your own yard By DONALD R. BRANN When the afternoon sun be- gins to set, and tte mind and wdy turn toward dinner, why not enjoy a change of pace with a picnic in your own back- yard. Eliminate the danger of Towded highways, save time, temper, your car's fenders, and still enjoy the same sky, stars and soft moonlight. The fun and festivities begin the minute you make the suggestion, pro- vided you have an out-door pic- nic table. The one illustrated can be wilt to 6 ft. length or longer from stock lumber. The full- size pattern offered below ex- plains every step in language everyone can readily follow. Assembly illustrations show ex- actly where each piece is fas- tened while a purchase list of materials specifies what to buy, and where each is used. Even location of bolt holes are shown on pattern to further simplify construction. Send in cheque or money order for Pattern No. 22, Picnic Table Carpentry Dept., The Lethbridge Herald, P.O.

It's a matter of knowing a few tricks of the trade, of taking a little more care with preparation and sav- ing even more time on the job than the little amount you spent in advance work. It's a matter of picking your time and even your place. Faint in the shade. As the sun moves around your house, you move too, but in the other direction. The work will bo cooler, easier and less tiring. There's more than comfort involved, however. The sun's heat will draw the oik in the paint to the surface. Paint in the shade and there's less danger of paint failure. Paint during clear, dry wea- ther. If there has been a heavy rain, wait several days for the siding to become thoroughly dry. Don't start too soon in the morning if there has been a heavy dew. Give it tone to evaporate. Oil paints need a completely dry surface. Latex paints can be put over a slightly moist surface but don't press your luck and apply it over too much. Have enough paint on hand when you start work. Stopping to run out for more paint will throw you back more than you think. Check paint labels for of covering power. Figure about 400 square feet per gallon for the average older house, a little more area than that for a second coat. Get a gallon of trim paint. Most houses will need that much. Even if you end up us- ing a little less, it's cheaper than buying trim paint a quart at ft time. The extra, if there's any, is good for touchups. Have everything you need before you start. Besides paint and ladders and brushes, you will need thinners, pers, sandpaper, drop cloths. Wear old clothes. Avoid ten- nis shoes. You'll feel the la- der's rungs right through them. A drop cloth is very impor- tant. It can save you many ex- tra hours that you would have to spend cleaning up. Cover sidewalks, drives, shrubbery. Have plenty of rags and keep one handy. Wipe up the drop of paint that lands in OK wrong place and do it right away. It's easy then. Keep a putty knife in your pocket. Use it to scrape off loose or blistering paint. If peeling and blistering are ex- tensive, do all your scraping and sanding first. This will allow you to paint without major interruptions later. Use a wire brush for clean- ing accumulated dirt Calk before you paint, or as you paint. But don't calk after. (Newspaper Enterprise Asra.)
