Hundreds May Enjoy Choice Blooms Rose Shows Widen Viewing Pleasure By CHARLES BAUER An outstanding bloom ap- peal's from time to time dur- ing the rose growing season. Photography may capture its classic form and color for later viewing but like its many com- panions it will inevitably wither and die. Only a fortunate few will have seen and admired its beauty! What could be more re- warding than to share the pride of your garden with several thousand spectators that attend the local rose shows? Selection of exhibition types, pruning, watering, fertilization, spraying, and good gardening practices all play an important role to those who have showing in mind. Some authorities stress the importance of restricting the number of canes to four or five to produce fewer but higher quality blooms for exhibition purposes, and with the addi- tion of an extra cane or two from basal breaks it would be all that the plant could support well. Water is a most important commodity. The plants require at least an inch of moisture weekly and more often during lot, dry weather. The drying of .he surface could be used as a for how often to water. Do not let light showers deceive you. A commercial fertilizer should be applied once a month. A tablespoon per plant is suffi- cient. Some prefer to feed twice a month -using hah! the quan- ity. There is a tendency to overfeed and this should be avoided. Spray a week or ten days >rior to the show, with the solu- ion slightly weaker than direc- ions specify if weather is hot, o avoid foliage damage at this ime. If powder is used, dust 'ery lightly in the late after- noon or evening on dry foliage, f applied too heavily by acci- dent, tap the cane with a stick. Mildew could be at its worst in August with its hot days and ;ool nights, and it is generally vorse in dry weather. Acti- )ione PM, a spray, is perhaps .he best available at present. Justs containing Karathane dinocap) or Phaltan (folpet) may help. The latter is also use- ul for blackspot. With the show in mind, ilooms should be cut in the arly season at an upper, out- vard facing, full five section eaf. Depending on variety they hould flower again in 38 to 45 lays from the leaf node where he cut was made. The slow re- peating types could take anoth- er week. This could be an in- eresting observation if records are kept for the different va- ietics and could be useful for chcduling blooms by cutting jack the lops of cane the rc- uircd number of days previous o the show. Hybrid teas must be disbud- led early so that no scar shows hat could draw a penalty from he judge, A lead pencil can be scd to push the tiny side buds ut, leaving the terminal bud. >idc shoots should also be re- novcd early from the length of 10 stem required for showing, 'ake off side buds on grandi- loras, leaving the terminal bud or a single flower. If a cluster f buds forming then re- nove the terminal bud so not to leave a scar. The ter- Tninal bud should also be re- moved from the floribundas. Some growers use sun shades when color shows on the bud, to prevent dark and withered edges on some varieties and to slow the opening of the bloom. Small paper bags could be used. A 12-inch piece of card- board attached to a stake ser- ves the purpose very well, but is not attractive in the garden. Roses should be gathered in the late afternoon or evening and labelled as to variety. Do not trust to memory. He-cut the stems on a slant a quarter of an inch below the leaf node to the opposite side. Water absorp- tion is considered best at this point. Immerse up to their necks in water (not the bloom) for a half hour or more, and leaving them in a cool place to harden. This will prevent wilt- ing on the show bench. If all exhibitors depended on the previous day's cutting of blooms there would be fewer entries in our r o-s e shows. Ex- periment with the storage of roses in throughout your refrigerator the season! Keep them up to three or four days or damaged foliage. Show only at 35 to 40 degrees, in a jar containing water. Place a plas- tic bag over them to offset dehydration, putting a few holes in the top of the bag to limit condensation. The bloom will open very slowly and ex- pand somewhat in size. If tem- perature is too low, damage could result. If too high, the bloom will open too fast. Line the freezing compartment with cardboard. Those cut four days ahead of a specified time will need to be tighter with the sepals down and just opening. The very heavily-petalled types should be in a more advanced stage. On subsequent days this stage of opening at cutting time is s t i 11 more advanced. Expe- rience will be your 'guide. You will learn how each variety per- forms under these conditions, opening uniformly when taken from the refrigerator. Freshen by immersing in water for a few minutes. All blooms must be at a one- third to three-quarters opening stage, named correctly and en- tered in their proper class. Do not enter split or confused cen- tres, those with crooked stems your best specimens. Spray residues should be removed with a soft, damp cloth, also thorns could be snipped1 that will be within the container on the show bench. Carefully re- move one or two of the outer petals that may be damaged or Withered, in a manner that can- not be detected by the judge. If too many are removed the form could be altered or dam- aged. If you are taking your roses across town to the show, a seal- er wedged with newspaper in a carton mil prevent tipping. To keep out drafts, cover with plas- tic to inhibit opening. Every little detail from the time of Spring pruning until the day you enter your blooms at the show adds up in your fa- vor. Your competitor may have missed one or two and the top award could be yours! Officials of the co-op express- ed confidence Tuesday suffi- cient funds to proceed with the store would be gained by the end of June.
