You should not, put Ihcse polled plants out- side and then forget entirely] where they arc or that they need summer care, for there j are certain requisites and p.'-- cautions to be observed if the plants are to get the most from the open air. Now that the spring work is somewhat less and the weather is more scfticd 2nd warmer, it's time for this annual exodus. There are three main prelim- inary steps to undertake before finally setting them outside, which are as follows: (li Discard plants that have outlived thier usefulness, in- cluding those too big for their indoor niche and which cannot MOST IMPORTANT Halibut is the most important flatfish commercially and one of the most valuable of all fish. he reduced in size by pruning. Prune, to promote sym- metry or to reduce a plant's size. (li) Kepot into larger pots those plants that need more room in which to grow. If I lie pots prc to he plunged into the soil, first check for in- sect If any arc present or suspected, place the pots on their sides and spray water or an inst'ctich'e on the undersides of the leaves. It is much easier to get at the pi'sls now than it will be later when the pots arc in (lie ground. For convenience in caring for them it is better to group house plants together in various out- door bed locations to provide a variety of conditions full sun for plants that tolerate it, such as cacti and succulents, amary- llis and geraniums; part shade for azaleas, Christmas c a c (us and orchid cactus and shade for folige plants in general. A spot near a high-headed tree or shrub whose foliage is not too dense or in the vicinity of a building may provide these various conditions in one local area; if not, the plants have to be scattered in flower or shrub borders. Placing the pots in the ground or in a special bed of peat moss or sand will lessen the need for plant watering. Pot rims should he slightly above the soil level and the base of each pot should he sur- rounded wiht cinders or gravel to provide drainage. This ar- i rangcmenl also prevent j planls from rooting over the i i pot rims or through the pot drainage hole. The pots shorld i he given an occasional half- turn so that, plants will not j grow loo much in one direction toward the sun. Normal summer rainfall will reduce the need for watering. However, the plants should he; watered whenever (here is prolonged ury Their roots! I are confined in a small space and cannot, like Ihose of unre- stricted plants, reach out in search of moisture.

Columbus' ship was wrecked off Haiti Of the three ships of the first Columbus expedition to the New World, tl'.e Santa Marie was on a reef on Christinas Eve in the Republic of Haiti. Columbus returned home on the Nina. If house plants are given ttw right amount of sun or shade, moisture and food, while they are on 'summer out- doors, they'll be in mi'i'h bet- ter condition for the long winter months indoors. Don't forget to mark on your calendar the date on which you should be preparing for their return. Usually just before the first light frost. This may be early in .September in eastern Canada, and perhaps by the end of August in the prairie re- gions. HOMOCiHAF CO. OF CANADA 10 .IAKVIS ST.
