NAME ADDRESS (Left.) Your Garden By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. MOLUCELLA BELLS OF IRELAND T would like to make somi comments on an annua that is not too well-known, bu which should be more widely grown. It is known. as Molucella laevis or Bells of Ire land, and grows 24 to 30 inch es. Although this might seem like a flower for the Irish, i can be used by anyone and is especially esteemed by flower arrangers, used either fresh 01 dried, as well as being attrac live in the garden. The color is apple-green and the interesting bell-shaped bracts contain the SAVE HERE ON GARDEN TOOLS! Crestline Builders Marker, 123-30th Street North.

While somewhat late to plant inside, which is usually about April 8, you can try planting a few seeds outside as soon as the ground warms up. Some people have better luck this way than indoors. Germination is quite erratic so to help over- come this soak the seed in warm water overnight. Sow in full sun in a well-drained soil. After the plants are up they are thinned out to about 10 to 12 inches apart. Feed a liquid fertilizer when the flowers and bracts have formed. If you are unable to grow your own plants they may be available at some of the greenhouses or bedding- out sources, or perhaps from a friend. For those who have al- ready started their own plants in a greenhouse, you can keep on growing some of them un- der glass. In this way you get superior stems of bracts as long as 3 feet. To preserve this unusual and attractive flower I would sug- gest for Method No. 1 They must be fully matured, and rather crisp to the touch. All foliage is removed and" the plant is put in deep, cool water for several hours. If a par- ticular type of curve is de- sired, shape while the flower is -fresh, tying in that position and then drying. Mix 1 part of gly- cerine to 3 parts of boiling water and allow to enol before placing Molucella stems in sol- ution. Leave in this for about a week or until no more mois- ture is being absorbed. Tie in bunches to dry in a warm, sun- ny place, where there is free circulation of air. For Method No. 2 Cut stalk before all the flowers (white part) fall. Group three to four stems together and then tie to a wire coat hanger and dry in a warm, airy place. Mr. C. Please advise me as to what to do to get rid-of slugs. Ans. Most slugs feed at night but some also feed on dull, damp days. The presence of slugs is indicated by the shiny trails of slime they leave behind. The best control is prevention by getting rid of all rubbish, weed piles or anything under which they can aide during the heat of the day. Slug pellets, which are avail- able at most garden centres, are very effective. Directions are found on container. Mrs. K. We have little Mack bugs on our dwarf dah- lias. They are packed solid around the stem of the flowers. What should I use for these? Ans. These are probably black aphids. There are several colors of these. Using Malath- on according to directions will rid your plants of this pest. a Any questions should be sent with self addressed, stamped envelope to Mrs. Young, 11620 Centre B St.. N.W. Calgary 43. Do-It-Y our self Good Tools Make Gardening Much Easier By Mil. FIX The well filled tool displays and the first breath of warm weather combine to create an awful temptation. Succumbing to that temptation results in buying a'n assortment of garden tools that may strain the bud- get without covering real needs. Even when buying basics, care should be taken. You need a rake, but make certain it is a rake that suits you. Hell each tool. Get one with the most comfortable weight and feel to it. Look for balance. Buy good tools they will last for years if they are cared for. Get the basics before you blow you whole budget on non- essentials. You will need. tools for digging, cultivating, pruning, watering and spray- ing. For the lawn you will need tools to cut and clean up. Invest sensibly. Wait for other seasons for the frills when you are in a better position to determine what you really need. Asparagus knives, bulb fiianters, seed sowers and sickles are all fine items [or the advanced gardener who may have developed a need for one or more of them and who already owns the basic tools. For working the soil get a spading fork (for turning the soil) and a spade (for turning and digging Any deep digging calls for a long-handled pointed shovel. For leveling the turned earth get an iron rake. A hand trowel is good lor set- ting out small plants. For cultivating you will need either a pronged cultivator or a hoe. You can get a combination hoe that has a wide blade on one side, a twin-pointed blade on the other. For pruning you will need a pair of pruning shears, hedge shears (if you nave a sharp knife. If you have trees or woody shrubs consider a pruning saw. For lawn care in addition to a mower, you will need a broom lawn rake and hand trimming shears. An edger makes for a neater lawn but in the beginning you can slice the edge of the turf fairly well with the edge of your square spade. For watering you will need a hose (at least 50 an ad- justable nozzle, a sprinkler and a watering can. A hose reel is not necessary but consider one for the future it makus taking care of and storing of your hose very easy. Beyond these, pick certain items that will make your par- ticular job easier. If you have a big yai'd and do lots of gar- d e n i n g, transplanting and spreading topsoil, get a good wheelbarrow. A fertilizer spreader makes lawn care easier and belter. Take a look at sprayers for insecticides anything from hand jobs to big pressure sprayers. Make the tools you buy last longer by keeping them clean. Scrape off all dirt and mud. Wire brushing will keep them clean. Keep moving parts lub- ricated. Keep metal edges sharp. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.'
