Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, June 21, 1974 HOME OF THE WEEK Pesticides can be avoided By knowing his plants and soil, the good gardener can often avoid the use of all pesticides except to prevent severe infestation. Proper soil preparation and cultivation and the rotation of crops can result in a pest tree garden without resorting to chemicals, says a Toronto based organization called the Civic Garden Centre.

PERENNIALS TO DELIGHT YOU This week I would like to comment on some perennials that. I am sure, you would just love to have in your garden. With the exception of Phlox, they are rather unusual, and all of them are growing in my borders. While I grew mine from seed, the plants are obtainable from most nurseries. Heuchera sanguinea or Coral Bells has small, bell shaped flowers in white, and shades of red. on thin, graceful stems, growing up to 24 inches in height. They bloom all summer long in either sun or semi shade. For a real show in beds or borders, plant two or three together, making sure the soil is well drained Even if the plant had no flowers at all. it would still be an attraction in the garden because of its lovely green foliage, which turns a reddish color in winter. Planted with early flowering perennials such as bleeding heart or peonies, they add a touch of color right up to fall, where otherwise there would just be green. The dwarf varieties are ideal for the rockery. The cor- al bells seem to attract the humming birds into the gar- den, and I have watched them hover over the flowers. Several years ago. I started some leoRtopodium or edelweiss from seed. I had never grown it before and was quite delighted with the results. This perennial alpine originates from central Europe. The foliage is silvery white and woolly, and the flowers, almost incon- spicuous, lay hidden within the leafy bracts. The best location is one that is sunny, in a soil that is well drained and not too rich. The silver color is more pronounced under these We Carry the Largest Stock of TREES SHRUBS in Southern Alberta FRUIT TREES Apple Rmpbenies GooMbenin and GARDEN SUPPLIES Sunshine Peal MOM Garden Insecticides ORNAMENTALTREES Mayday Ketwry Double Flowering Pink Rojretty Flowering Crab Weeping or Semi Weeping Ceragvnt New MacDonaM Flowering Crab developed Lacombe, SHADETREES Laurel Leal Willow Green American Elm New TR1ST1S Poplar pha others.

Growing from four to six inches high, this interesting and quaint peren- nial is a worth while specimen in the rock garden or elsewhere. The geum or aven may be familiar to some. The flowers are double or semi double and look almost like small roses. It is well adapted to the .border or rock garden and is also nice for cutting. It comes in shades or red or yellow and grows approximately 12 to 18 inches in height. There are several varieties of this perennial. To grow successfully, geums must be kept evenly moist in a well drained, loamy soil, in full-sun or light shade. If grown in a soil that contains too much clay they are prone to rot dur- ing the winter months. The low tufts of leaves are hairy in appearance. For companion plants, Geums go nicely with the white Shasta daisy, cam- panulas or even the coral bells Phlox has been a popular perennial for a long time, but there are always amateurs who would like to know where to plant it and how to grow it properly It provides con- tinuous bloom throughout the summer and fall, until the frost comes. If given the right conditions full sun or light shade, lots of room for good air circulation, plenty of moisture and a well drained soil, you will be rewarded with masses of brilliant flowers in colors of rose, pink, mauve, red and white etc. If growing from seed, freeze in water Cor seven to 10 days in the ice cube trays, or plant in the fall just before freeze up. These perennials range in height from the dwarf to the taller varieties of around 30 inches As this flower is susceptible to mildew, do not water late in the evening and do not space the plants too close together As a cut it js only mediocre Jwcause the florets drop very quickly There are not too many perennials that stand moving when in fall bloom, but phlox may be dug up at this time without too much of a setback. Some of the English hybrids are quite outstanding At Home Thanks to the new, easy to mix concrete now available, anyone can pave a patio with these attractive concrete squares. Once a patio is paved, full size patterns are available that simplify building all the furniture needed. The secret to paving a terrace with the skill of an experienced craft- sman, lies in the method out- lined in easy to follow patterns. No special tools or skill are required since every step is explained in language everyone understands. The pattern method assumes you know nothing about laying concrete and explains how to lay out guide lines to excavate foundation, what materials to buy, when each is used. Step by step directions and il- lustrations show how to put in the foundation, how to line up dividing strips, how to add color with various cement dyes now available. By using metal strips as dividers, squares can be made to any size desired. The finished effect is comparable to an ex- pensive terrazo job.

Vapor barriers inside One of the questions most frequently asked of the National Mineral Wool Insulation Association and the insulation manufacturing companies themselves is: Where does the vapor barrier go? A vapor barrier is adhered to one surface of insulation blankets. It may be aluminum foil or heavy draft paper laminated with asphalt. Its purrose is to keep moisture vapor in the air from penetrating walls, ceilings, and floors. The vapor barrier should always face the "heated in winter" side of the construction, the NMWIA says. The association used to refer to the "warm side" but that term caused confusion among some people thinking of conditions in summer, when the outdoor temperature is higher than the temperature inside an air conditioned home.
