-Friday, May 1, i970 THE LCTHBRIDGE HtRAtD if IllfflHBlH Your Garden By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. WIT LANDSCAPING ITH the fine weather we have been having lately many people have started lo think about landscaping. Good planning is necessary if we are to create a pleasing' picture. Each type of plant whether it be trees, shrubs, vmest annuals, perennials, etc. has a definite role to play. If your property is on the small side, especially the lawn area, try and have all of your planting around it instead of cutting it up into small areas. The entrance lo your garden is most important it should create a good impression not only to you but also to the pub- lic. Trees are about one of the most costly plants in the gar- den so plan wisely, and if you cannot afford too much for out- lay the first year decide wheth- er you would like flowering trees which are most beautiful and colorful or one or two ev- ergreens. The Kosybloom Crabs are quite outstanding and in- clude Almey which has showy, crimson flowers with white markings at the base of the petals; Royalty is smaller than the previous one mentioned but is perhaps the hardiest of the fed flowered varieties. There are also flowering plums, cher- ries, mountain ash and others. The Tartarian Maple has bril- lant fall coloring. The Amur Cherry has small, white flow- ers in mid-May. It is quite orna- mental in the winter with its bright, brownish-yellow, flaking bark. Whether you plan for decid- uous or evergreen trees and shrubs, try and have them tie in with the rest of the garden by relating them with the house, paths, patios, perennial and annual beds. Landscaping also includes climbers, a rock garden or pool, archways, play areas for the children. This Garden Display Special Feature Edmonton Snow Green (numbers and weekend gardeners attention! There's something you shouldn't miss seeing at the Edmonton Home Show May 6 to 10 at the Ed- monton Exhibition's SportEx Building. It's the eye-catching outdoor and gardening display by the Alberta Nursery Trades Asso- ciation covering over square feet in the newly formed Home Show. Trees ranging up to 10 feet high, dozens of different shrubs, a fabulous patio com- plete with built-in barbecue, patio seats and even a chil- dren's playground are included in the display. It will also be fully, grassed and will feature various kinds of gravel recom- mended for finishing off that outdoor patio around your home. Special materials for walks, patio construction, fenc- ing and even a toolshed will also be on display in this fea- ture centrally located in the show. Spring Brings Window Screens Before putting up all those window screens that have been down all winter be sure they are still in good condition. If they need repainting or touch- up, they are easier to paint if laid flat on supports. Wipe off all dust and dirt before apply- ing the paint. Screen enamel is best applied with an applicator available from your paint deal- er. WORLD ALMANAC FACTS A hallucinogen is a drug that alters the user's sense of time, space and self; Al- bert Hofmann synthesized the hallucinatory drug LSD in Switzerland during 1938, The World Almanac says. He1 aceldently discovered LSD's marked psychic ef- fects five years later. LSD may induce suicidal be- havior or schtzophreniclike reactions that can result in iccidenUl injuries to UM latter should be given a bit of thought for certainly it should be located where it can be 'iewed from a window for su- pervision. If you have any steep grades, the problem as to what to plant can be overcome by using ground covers of which the Se- dums are one of the hardiest: They will, grew under almost any condition heat, cold, sun, shade, etc. Two of the most popular sedums are Sedum kamschaticum with yellow flowers and S. spurium with pink flowers. One should always have a focal point (an outstanding which could be a patio, a brilliant bed of annuals .or an- nuals and perennials combined. If possible, use curved lines which arc graceful and more artistic than just ordinary straight ones. No matter what your plans may be, trees are usually plant- ed first when landscaping. Then come shrubs and the flower beds are next. Costly mistakes can be erased on paper, but once a tree is planted moving it can be expensive not only in the labor involved, but can re- sult in the loss of a year or more in the growth of the tree.
