Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LrHBRIDG! HERALD Trldoy, July 26, 1972 YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. GERANIUMS THAT ARE DIFFERENT G P. r a n i H m s, botanically known as pelargoniums, arc very popular for house and greenhouse growing or lor bed- ding purposes, putting on a mas- sive dlsplny all summer. They create a great deal o[ interest wherever they are grown and are a real favorite with most people. This week. I would like lo comment on scented and mi- niature varieties. The miniatures are zonal ge- raniums, originating from the larger forms. Usually, minia- tures will not exceed five inches, grouii under normal conditions and confined to small pots. The size depends some- what on variety, hut mostly on cultural conditions. As with all geraniums, they require a lot of sun in order to produce an abundance of flowers. Plants grown in two and one-half inch pots remain only a few inches high for several years. The leaves become smaller and sometimes the stems may be gnarled, but they continue to produce a wealth of blooms. In a pot of this size, constant wat- ering is a factor. A three inch pot is perhaps better, with only a slight increase in plant growth noted. If you want to use a four inch pot, the geraniums will grow from six to nine inches high, and be very bushy. They are actually very slow growers. There are both light and dark leaved varieties, and are idea] for indoor or outdoor decoration. Scented leaf geraniums are rare and beautiful. When I say I am reltering more to the scent. The first one I ever grew was Lemon (P. wliich has pale lavender flowers and a most refreshing lemon scent, espe- cially when the leaves are nip- ped. The leaves are small and in the variegated variety, they are lemon and green colored. I had one sitting on my kitchen windom for years, admired and loved by many. Among some of the outstanding varieties is Apple (P. an attractive bushy plant with a captivating apple scent, making one almost teinp'ed lo eat it. The small, white flowers have some red on the upper petals. Ginger (P. Torento) is a strong growing plant with large, lav- ender flowers and sweet scent- ed, grey leaves. Lime (P. ncr- vosum) has lavender blooms on a low growing plant. A rather nice specimen. Old Fashioned Dose is probably the best known of all scented leaf geraniums, and the ancestor of many others. The foliage is grey- green, and the plants are tall and bushy. This is used for flavoring jams, jellies and wines. A very lovely one, with tiny, variegated leaves and a delightful perfume is Varie- gated Nutmeg (P. varicgatata There are quite a number of other varieties, but unfortunately, there does not seem lo be many sources from wliich to obtain plants. G. and G. Greenhouses, Box 822, Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, do have some, and one could write for their catalogue lor further formation. 9 Mr. P. I notice that I have some black spots on my rose leaves. Not on all the bushes. Could you please tell me what this is and can I do something about it? Ans. This is probably Black Spot, one of the most serious fungus diseases of roses. Con- trol by spraying with Captan, as directed, saturating nil plants in the bed and also the surface of the soil. Remove any infected leaves from the bushes and those on the ground. Mulching with peat moss could help. NOTE: All questions should be sent with self addressed- envelope to Mrs. I. R. Young, 3620 Centre B. SI. N.W., Calgary i3. Due lo the nuinhcr of letters asking more than one question it is requested in future enquiries that only ONE question be submitted each time as it is impossible for Mrs. Young to reply to all correspondence and do her practical garden- ing as well. HOME OF THE WEEK Nipping rust in the bud Uy MR. FIX Rust is a constant enemy but always more apparent in warm weather. It is tlie liigh humidity that not only makes you un- comfortable but also provides the moisture that ji turn leads to corrosion ot metal items. Thus, the tools in your base- ment tiiat weathered the winter with no apparent trouble will show signs of rust before cold weather returns. Garden tools suffer the added indignity of being left out overnight or sometimes for days on end and, it rainfall doesn't get them, a heavy dew will. Rust can be removed but pre- vention is better, easier and more sensible. Especially sus- ceptible are items made of iron. Remember that rust comes about when metal comes in contact with another element moist air or even an- other metal of a different type Protection of metal items in- doors is principally a matter of preventing excess moisture the air. Provide ventilation. Vent excess moisture to the outside, using exhaust fans in kitchen and bath. Make certain clothes dryers are properly vented. If you dry clothes indoors is very important. Consider the use of an electA dehumidifier if air is particul- arly moist. Most basements will benefit by the presence o[ one Tools, 'especially those that are stored in the basement, should be coated with a ligU film of oil. This can be easily wiped off when the tool must be used. An oily rag in a well- sealed melal can is useful for wiping a fresh fihn of oil on the lool. A light coating of wax can be used in some areas as oa the table of a power saw. Appliances in the basement should be checked frequently. Rust generally forms close to the bottom or at the seams. Outdoors, check melal lawn furniture and children's toys. Sar.d rust spots to bare metal. Use a good rust preventative primer. Metal gutters are another vic- tim of corrosion. The rust will cause a yellow stain, not only m the gutter but down the side of your house. Joints and edges are the like- liest spots for rust to start. Scrape, sand and prime with a rust preventative paint. Then finish with the right color. When putting up gutters or making repairs make certain you used nails and accessories of similar metal aluminum for aluminum gutters, etc. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) From the front this back split duplex looks like a contempor- ary low ranch type home. Truly functional and imagina- tive, the covered front entrance leads into the foyer and from there up two curved steps to the living room. Here the plans suggest exposing the brick of the double course wall dividing the two units. On the other side of the foyer, the front facing kitchen has a corner sink under corner windows and adjoining is a cozy dinette. To the rear of the house, up just a few stairs are found two bedrooms and down just a few stairs are located a third bedroom ar.l den. On the lowest level, under the front part of the house a laundry, utilities and recreation room are located. An additional washroom could be added here to serve these areas. There are extra storage areas in the rear of the carport, under the base- ment stairs and in the rear hall. Privacy is assured by the extension ot the handsome double course brick dividing wall comes forward of Ihe living room windows. HOMOGRAF CO.

BRANM Since a child's behaviorism pattern sometimes mirrors that j of a parent, even the act of re- j lading in the sun or shade can be important in shaping a j child's thoughts. The parent who finds comfort in a lawn chair he built, can establish two contacts with the child. The first is in making the chair and second, Ihe endeavor provides endless hours of fun relay- ing. Children, like some ani- mals, have an uncanny ability lo sense the inner feelings of adults, even when no words are j spoken.
