Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, 7, 1974 Mums the word for lasting colors As autumn paints your landscapes, mums can add those extra splashes of color everywhere around your home. Once planted this spring, mums will reward you year after year. Among the newest and most vigorous of the many garden mums is a new masterpiece collection of 12 different varities. This unusual group of chrysanthemums was introduced in 1974. Colors include shades of pink, white and red to yellow and bronze, ranging from light to dark tones. Best time to plant murns is spring to get a strong roothold by fall. You can obtain strongly rooted cuttings in garden packs or pots from garden centres In ttie fall, you save money by purchasing young mum plants not yet in bud Young seedlings, with color pictures, give you best economy The same dollar investment gives you yards of blooms. Plant seedlings in enriched garden soil in good sunlight. When plants are five inches tall, pinch tips of tallest stems to encourage side growth for bushier display and more blooms As new shoots reach three inches, pinch them again, up to July 10 in northern areas, July 20 in central and Aug. 1 in southern states. Because you keep growth compact too by pinching, staking is rarely necessary. Keep mums watered weekly, says Jack Atkins of Yoder-Atkins, one of the nation's foremost mum authorities. He advised adding several inches of well- rotted compost, peat moss or leaf mold to mum beds as mulch to improve soil condition, year by year. Monthly applications of dry 5-10-5 at one to two Ibs. per 100 square feet will stimulate strong growth. From mid- September to frost, mums will bloom beautifully long after other flowers have passed their prime.

Use the magic inherent in wise use of laws of perspective to make tiny area work like much larger garden. Your garden By IsabelleR. Young, F.HH.S. THOSE DELIGHTFUL FUCHSIAS Fuchsias have a long season of bloom and are delightful in hanging baskets, elegant as standards and make-a glorious display as house or porch plants. They offer so much for so little care. The hybridizers have given us such a wide variety, both single and double, to choose from, and there is a color range to suit all tates. The majority of Fuchisias come from Central and South America, Mexico and the West Indies and in most climates they are deciduous shrubs. Here, however, they have to be taken indoors in the winter. Most Fuchsias thrive under the same conditions as for tuberous Begonias, but some of the small single and larger flowered ones will tolerate the late afternoon sun. They should be well protected from the wind and drafts and require an abudnance of moisture at all times. Keeping the soil moist is a "must." Mulching with peat moss will help to conserve moisture, whether the plants are grown in benches in the greenhouse or in pots or other containers. Fuchsias are quite fast growers and so require a good compost. You could use five parts sandy loam, four parts leaf mold, one part peat moss and one part manure, (or more peat and sand if not A little bonemeal may be added to each potf ul of mixture. If you would like to start your own plants, cuttings may be taken from April to August. This is one way of increasing your own stock and knowing they will look exactly like the parent plant. Young shoots should be two to three inches long with three pair of leaves, Carpentry Corner Streamlined chaise is easy to build By DONALD BRANN If relaxation is on your master plan for easier living, this build-it-yourself chaise can be a big help. Adjustable and portable, its streamlined design provides form-fitting comfort at low cost. The curved contour requires no special tools or woodworking skill. The full size pattern is traced on lumber specified. While you can cut each part with a coping or keyhole saw, an electric saber saw simplifies doing the job in very little time. Working with wood provides an exhilarating experience. In a matter of a few hoars you can fashion lumber into handsome pieces of outdoor furniture. By following the full size templates, even the big wheels are easy to saw. The materials list printed on pattern tells what to buy, where and when each is used. Ail materials cost less than half a similar chaise costs if purchased ready-made. Send in cheque or money order for Beverly Hills Chaise, Pattern No. 312 to LeUibridge Herald, P.O. Box 4090.

Root in a soil mixture of 1 part loam, 1 part peat moss, and 1 part sand or equal parts of perlite and vermiculite instead of the sand. Insert four to five cuttings of the same variety in a pot. To provide the humidity they require, a glass jar or piece of plastic should be put over the pot. Keep out of full sun, just giving enough light to help them get rooted. It takes approximately eight to ten weeks for the cuttings to be well rooted. Pot up in the compost mentioned previously, using a 5 or 7 inch pot, according to the size of the plant required. When the plant has reached the desired height, pinch out the tips, and all subsequent shoots when they reach three inches long, as they appear, to encourage bushiness. It takes approximately two months for a fuchsia to bloom after pinching has ceased, when growing for hanging baskets, plant in March or April, using four plants to a 16 inch basket. Pinch out the tips once, or twice at the most. This makes a really fine display. Fuchsias are really seen at their best in hanging baskets. Do not put plants outdoors until all danger of frost is over, and as mentioned before, NEVER allow them to dry out. During the hot weather they may require to be watered several times a day. Feeding is also important to obtain the best results. Give a fish fertilizer once a week in the spring, then when flowering is at its height, feed twice a week with 20-20-20, then taper off to once every two weeks. Do not feed a dry plant or a sick one. Fuchsias are susceptible to aphids. red spiders, white flies and mealy bugs. For red spider use Kelthane, for aphids and white flies use malathion. Mealy bugs can be taken off by touching them with a piece of cotton batting on a toothpick dipped in rubbing alcohol. If this procedure fails or is too time consuming, spray with a good general insecticide such as malathion.

CURRY (From "Okay. I'll Do It by Barbara A Curry Copyright c 1971 by Barbara A Curry. Reprinted by permission of Random House, Inc The friendly, fusty-dusty, junk-packed hardware store, unfortunately, has just about had it. Today's version is a prepackaged nifty, gifty houseware store. If you're lucky enough to have the old kind around, get thee to it. There you can buy one of something, not six for 75 cents. You can also get relevant advice and learn a bit to boot. Beware when you brave those "other places." Being helpless will only make them helpless themselves. Always go forth with as much authority as you can muster. If you can manage it, put together a shipshape list. One on graph paper does wonders! If possible, in all classes bring a sample of the "thing" you want. Sprinkler terminology around, but don't get carried away with the sound of your own voice. TOOL UP The old saw about "a poor workman blames his tools" is just that. The truth is that a poor workman with good tools can do almost anything. A hammer has it all over the heel of a shoe. Some words of caution tools are not toys. They are meant to cut. shave, scrape, fasten and make holes in materials that are a lot tougher than skin and bone. Treat them with respect, and needless to say. keep them out of the reach of children. Clippers, Wire. There are those that just cut wire (1) and then there is a kind (2) that cuts wire and also cuts as pliers The second is more practical for you, since it can do several jobs. The flat, fine- lined jaws are particularly good for holding or tightening little flat-sided things like nuts. Hammer, daw. A hammer can be used to tenderize round steak, crack black walnuts, or mash woody stems of flowers so that they don't thirst to death. For our purposes, however, the front part of the hammer drives nails into surfaces and the back part pulls them out. Knife, Putty. Another inexpensive helper. Basically, it's a thin-Waded, noncutting, flexible knife that can either lift things up (like old wallpaper) or smooth things down (like I've never used mine with real putty. Pliers. Slip-jointed pliers seem to be what the experts call these. The two parts slide back and forth to adjust the jaws (mostly when you don't want them to) to hold on to. turn or pull out objects of various sizes, up to 1% inches diameter. Saw, Hand. This is just what it says it is. something to saw by hand with. The one for you is about two feet long. It saws solid wood, plywood, hardwood, plasterboard, table legs, chair legs and sometimes fingers. Something should be said about sawing in general. Draw a line to mark where you want to saw. To insure a good start, put the non-saw- holding hand down and with your fingers grasp the edge of whatever you're sawing. Bend your thumb so that the first knuckle lines up the saw on the line and guides it while you saw slowly and lightly on the mark. Screwdrivers. Even without vodka, these come in more sizes, shapes and varieties than almost anything. Most of them are bad. Let's consider the grip end first Beware of the deep-fluted kind. It's a fast blister builder. The best screwdriver handle is made of solid, slightly fluted wood. Now for the screwing end. It comes in two basic designs straight and Phillips, or star- shaped. Live it up and buy three different ones: measuring end to end, two straight, one 5 inches to 6 inches long, the other 11 to 12 inches, one Phillips 8 to 9 inches. Wrench, Adjustable Crescent. This is great for really hanging onto nuts (square or hexagonal) to tighten or loosen them. Most of the time you can manage with pliers, but for practically any plumbing project like replacing washers, you need this tightfisted approach. Invest in them.
