Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 lETHBRIDGc HEHALD Tuetday, March 20, 1973 GARDEN QUEEN Continued from Page 9 Tl-.i: purpose of this is fo force c 3 nes to grow away from tltc centre of the plant lo up the middle of the bush to admit sunlight and air. The canes must have healthy with white pithy centres. Brown cr tannish centres indi- cate winter damage and Lf not removed will not provide sat- isfactory growth. Cut off small portions of cane until the pith is clear. Other damage also shows up with split canes and black areas. Cut below these. Three to five eancs are all that ars required for a healtjiy plant and it is unlikely that more than four to six inches of healthy wood will survive the winters in Southern Alberta. The cut ends may be sealed off with a pruning compound. Orange shollack may also be used. With the union uncovered, sucker growth emerging from below ttie union slmiW be care- fully removed at this lime it it is observed. Do not leave a stub. Wli'en growth starts, unwant- ed buds can be broken off. On some varieties, multiple buds appear from a bud eye. Reduce to a single hud and at this time, provide for the new growth against late spring frosts. Fertilize with a good rose food according to directions when plants are in full leaf. Ferti- lizing shou'd be discontinued July 15 to allow tlie canes to harden for winter. The plants require at least one inch of moisture weekly and more often during liot weather. Whenever Uve surface dries, water the plant. When cutting blooms, cut to a five-section leaf that faces outward. Depending on variety, they should (lower again, 38 to 45 days after tlrey are cut, from the leaf node where the cut was made. Slow repeating types could take a few extra days. Malathion is a dependable in- secticide when apbids appear. Some growers prefer dust insec- ticides but Iwtli provide excel- lent results. Tl-cso are avail- able from garden centres.
