Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK Organic DESIGN R23434 In recent years we have come to hear a great deal about the advantages of organic gardening, Organic farmers are suddenly doing big business be-cause more people realize that vegetables grown naturally are not o n 1 y more flavorful, they are free from toxic compounds, and the environment is left dean for future generations to enjoy. In spite of all the publicity about organic gardening, however, many people are still bewildered about how to become a good organic gardener. Actually, there are three very easy-to-follow rules which most successful organic gardeners practice. Copy these, and you will be a long way along the road to becoming an expert organic gardener. Rule 1 is to grow all your vegetable from seed. The purest and healthiest form of plant life is seed. Nothing in this world is more organic than a simple seed. Natural, untreated seed is free from dis- ______________ __ _ _ _ _ ease, and is the basis of all The long, low lines of the i ^ I strong healthy plant life.

Shredded leaves, straw, black plastic strips - and even old news papers - all are good mulches that make it tough for weeds to penetrate, and conserve moisture in the soil. For the average gardener insects need not be a big problem. A sharp eye will usually detect insect eggs or the start of any damage, and the offenders can be easily removed by hand. Ask any good organic farmer, and he'll confirm that 90 per cent- of good organic gardening practices consist of seed, compost and mulch. It's as easy as one-two-three. YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. JT COLORFUL ANNUALS is March 4th, and OH what a beautiful day! The mm is shining, the birds are singing and the temperature outdoors is over 50 degrees. It is too nice to be indoors, but I must get this article written for all my gardening friends. I am sure most of you are familiar with Zinnias. They make a beautiful picture in any yard. But do you know Sanvitalia procumbens or Creeping Zinnia? It grows just 6 in. high, producing dainty, bright yellow, daisy-like flowers aU summer long. It is ideal for planters hanging baskets, rock gardens, edgings, etc., and grows in full sun, withstanding hot, dry conditions. Sow indoors this week, to flower, by mid-June. Some people do not have success when transplanting Sanvitalia Aster flowers are star flowers The name "aster" means a star. It is used for the asters of the fields, blooming in the summer, and also for the "China" asters from the Orient which will not survive cold winters. These tender asters are grown from seeds planted each year and are one of the most popular garden flowers. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS peg Mew Zealanders are the world's* biggest meat eat* rt, according to a report on annual per capita con-�umption of meat in 48 major meat producing and consuming nations, compiled by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. In 1970, New Zealanders ate an average of 230 pounds of meat per person, followed by Argentinians, 204 pounds, Australians, 201 pounds, Uruguayans, 198 pounds, and Americans, 188 pounds, The World Almanac says. Copyrlfht c im but I have never had bad luck and have grown it for years. You could sow a few seeds in individual small pots, which could overcome this problem. Salpiglossis or Velvet Flower another beautiful annual, growing 24 in. or so in height. It is outstanding not only in the garden, with its trumpet-shaped flowers, but its slender, wiry stems make it ideal for indoor decoration. The blossoms have rich, velvety look, hence the name "Velvet Flower." There are many beautiful colors of gold, scarlet, purple, rose, crimson, etc. The deep veining enhances its beauty. Bolero and Splash are two very nice varieties, blooming abundantly. Grow In either sun or semi-shade in a light, rich soil. Start seed indoors now, as they are rather slow growing during the seedling stage. Transplant outdoors after all danger of frost is over. Pinch top of plants to produce a bushier specimen. Salpiglossis wil require sticks to support the slender stems. Another attractive annual that I like very much is Neme-sia, with its masses of cuplike flowers, growing in clusters in many bright colors of scarlet, white, orange, blue, pink, yellow, etc. It is a flower that cannot tolerate a great deal of heat, so the plants must be given ample supplies of water temperatures are high. I grew it in the border along the sidewalk one year and it did very well, as long as it was kept moist. This should also be started indoors now. Here again, some people experience difficulty when transplanting, but if it is.done carefully, there should be no problems. The plants are very shallow - rooted so care must be exercised when cultivating. For pots and container gardening, it is an appealing plant. To make it more bushy and attractive, pinch back. Nemesia makes a nice combination with white Alys never done anything more than repair a broken switch, this book will show you how to do a safe, professional job.
