Phone 328-1133 Fairy rings trouble Southern Alberta gardens Unsightly and damaging fairy rings are again causing area gardeners concern. The rings of brown-colored patches are caused by a mass of white mold growing in the soil under the turf. Mushrooms, which are the reproductive bodies of the fun- gus, develop in the outer edges of the mold growth. Officials at the Lethbridge Research Station have found that gardeners can clear up their lawns by "drowning" the fungus tlirougii an intensive month-long watering program. Holes should be made in the affected area and about two feet around the circumference of the fairy ring. Use of a po- tato fork will suffice to allow the water to pass through the resistant mold The soil under the entire ringed area should be kept "mushy" for the entire month. This may call for additional holes as needed. Phil Blakeley, information of- ficer at the station, reports that fairy ring also indicates a lawn could be lacking nitrogen or have a higher-than-normal ra- tio of phosphorus to nitrogen. A lawn requires one pound of nitrogen per square feet per month during the growing season. To get this amount, it requires three pounds of fer- tilizer labelled 33.5-0-0 or 34-0-0 or five pounds of 21-0-0 per 000 square feet. A lawn also needs one appli- cation of fertilizer in the spriog or fall containing phosphate such as 16-20-0 at the rate of five pounds per square feet. Fertilizers are numbers ac- cording to nitrogen-phosphate- potash. The higher the num- bers, the more component parts in the mixture. The entire lawn should be fertilized as not just the fairy rings, said Mr. Blake- ley. Keeping the lawn in a healthy growing condition by proper fertilizing and watering makes it more resistant to the development of fairy rings, he said.
