This junior hovercraft is not just a "gadget" it really does help you to get a better lawn, and here's how. Any lawn expert will pinpoint the two most common rea- sons for unsatisfactory lawns. One is cutting too close: be- cause glass foliage and roots are starved and growth in- hibited giving weeds and couch grass a chance to spread. The other is loss of springiness where Ihe con- stant passage of the rollers or wheels of a conventional mow- er presses and hardens the un- dersoil (causing a condition known as This means that the soil cracks easily in dry weather, Lhe lawn loses its springiness, and the grass plants have a prclly hard job to survive. What's more, the lawn won't stand up to the wear and tear any good family Jawn has to i live with, and can'l cope wilh a prolonged spell of dry sum- mer weather. Lawns are usually cropped too close of the bother of mowing on the principle that the closer you cut, the less often you'll have to get Ihe mower out. But you'll never get good lawn unless you cut lightly but frequently never shorter than V to Cutting at least twice a week in the growing season keeps the grass neatly "topped11 and promotes strong, natural growth. This is where the airborne m o w e r scores. The cutting ipight of the blade under the safely hood is easily adjustable.

(Copyright Easi-Bild- Toronto Star Synih'eale) THE BEAUTY OF PHLOX T A5I working at one of the Calgary nurseries during their peak season, and one of the perennials that seems to be quite popular is the phlox. If by chance you do not have any lial shade, but too much shade encourages mildew. Each plant .should be given plenty of room, which also helps to discourage cries, perennial borders or sun- ny slopes and banks is ideal. It grows 3 to 6 inches high and forms dense mats in colors of pink, lilac, rose, white and red. treat with Karathane. In hot Even, the foliage is quite altrac- weather, really soak the ground j live and remains decorative aU at least once a week, but avoid season. Blooming season is May this condition. If appears, of this delightful flower in your wetting the foliage at night as' and June. garden, plant some and enjoy it either in informal groups or in separate beds. Besides being pleasing to the eye, some aro very sweetly scented. If plant- ed close to the house, its scent wafts through the open door or windows, filling a room with the refreshing smell of summer. The blooming is from July to September. The new hybrid phlox have large, floriferons hends and tha color range seems almost end- less. There are beautiful shades and tints of pink, red, orange, scarlet, lavender, blue, etc. as well as the ever lovely while. It will grow in either sun or semi-shade and requires a well- drained, fairly rich soil. If you have had difficulty in growing perennial phlox, perhaps tho reason may be that you failed to give it adequate amounts of moisture which is required for good growth. Mulching will help Lo conserve moisture, especial- ly during hot, dry weather Flowers will last longer in par lliis contributes to mildew. This plant is very shallow rooted so when cultivating be careful not Io disturb or destroy the roots. Most plants from nurseries are In containers, so there is Mr. B.

Try a little gentleness I-........ and well rotted manure (or other fertilizer) and work well into the earth. Alter plant- ing, water well. If you are di- viding clumps, take pieces from the outside of the plant, dis- carding the old centre portion. Separate plants about every fourth year, before the centre becomes hard and woody. Be- cause of the height of some of the plants and the large flower heads, a support of some kind is necessary. Phlox slays in bloom In the garden for a long period, however, as a cut flow. er for the home, they are nol Ion satisfactory as they quickly wilt and drop their petals. It is most important, as with all flowers, as soon as they have faded they should be cut off. Tins will not always look bet- ter. but it will extend the sea- son of bloom. Varieties do not always come true from seed, so if you want a particular color, etc. it is best Io purchase one from a nursery. If your phlox is bothered with red spider mite, which causes Ihe leaves to yellow, and also leaves a fine webbing, control wilh Kelthane, wetting the un- derside of Ihe leaves.
