WATER LILIES Last week's article was devoted to the building of a garden so at this time I would like to discuss Water Lilies and other aquatic plants.. There are quite a number of people in Alberta growing these fascinating plants and obtain a great deal of pleasure from them. are so different to anything else and possibly because they make us think of less stern climates where they grow wild as our neighboring province of British Colum- but more likely because of their association with water. A 50 pound butter box ob- is a suitable size for planting your Water Lilies in. The boxes must have stout legs nailed onto each adjusting the length of them to bring the crown of the Lily at least 8 inches below the sur- face of the water. Bore drain holes in the bottom of Che box to allow water to seep in when putting into the otherwise it could tip over. To facilitate easier handling in an out of the handles are also necessary. I have tried a box and also bushel baskets and found the latter to be less work. They come equipped with handles and all you have to do is fill them with compost consisting of 3 parts good 1 part well-rotted manure with a liberal amount of bonemeal and some bloodmeal. Plant the tuber horizontally so the crown which the leaves is set or slightly above the soil surface. Sprinkle a layer of fine gravel over the earth. This is important if you have fish for they like to nose around in the soil and can thus make your pool dirty. When setting the container as a bushel into tl.e you might have to put it on some bricks to bring the Lily to the proper height below the water surface. -If you are already growing these plants and yc1.' think a little fertilizer is a way to app- ly it is to gefa wedge-shaped piece of wood and work it to and fro to make a space large enough to hold half a cup of fertilizer. Well-rotted cow manure or dried cow or sheep manure is satisfactory. You can also purchase special fer- tilizer for Water Lilies.-Fill the hole with'soil to cover the fertilizer and then cover with fine gravel. If scum accumulates on the top of your fill it to the top and then wash the scum over the sides of the pool with your garden hose. It is also a good idea to give the Lily pads a thorough washing off with the hose as this keeps them looking clean and bright and free of insects and other pests. To help keep the pool free of you should have some fish. either the Trapdoor or Melantho type are natural scavengers and keep the pool free from decayed matter and algae You could look almost right down to the bot- .tom of the pool I the water was so nice and clear. The gold fish grew to be a tremendous size. Fish usually do not have to be fed while outdoors in a pool because they get enough flies and etc. but they can be taught to take little from your fingers and do enjoy some of the specially prepared fish foods occasionally. There are so many gorgeous Water Lilies to choose from and they come in shades of red as well as white. There are blue ones but these are tropicals and are best treated as an- nuals. Some of the ones I have tried and like are Chromatella with deep yellow Gloriosa a magnificent deep red Comanche a bicolor Marliac White and a deep pink. Other plants that you could try are Cat Umbrella Water etc. After the first frost or before remove the Lilies from the allow- ing them to drain thoroughly and then store in a dark part of the basement. Do not let them dry out completely as this is the cause of most lilies failing to survive the winter. When new growth starts in the give a little more water and around the beginn- ing of when the weather warms they may be put outside. Your fish and etc. will have to be put in a tank indoors during the winter and early spring. There is a service charge of 25 cents if readers wish a personal answer to their gardening problems.

Update those When your walls are out of date the whole room .but even with a limited homeowners are brightening entire walls with the newer factory-finished wall panellings. Never before has the do-it- yourselfer faced such a wide choice of wood and surface materials when selecting a panelled wall covering. Some of the texture is sub- tle. Panels with embossed aged look of antiqued im- pressions in the wood surface to suggest the warmth and heritage of old world living. Other textures are bolder with deeply embossed wood veneers to provide a distinc- tive grain character. In trying to break away from the 20th century polish and manufacturers have combined the deep- grained patterns of weathered wood with a sway-texture to give rustic boldness that liberates the monotony of four plain walls. With the improvements in color and grain reproduction plus the introduction of grain- ed the vinyl pan- ellings have grown out of the wood cateogry. highly realistic reproductions of expensive and exotic woods are available at surprisingly low cost with all the low maintenance properties associated with a vinyl sur- face The newest step in panelling carries the factory-finished textured panel one step further with the addition' of color. when a family con- siders they no longer automatically assume that all four walls of a room must be covered. Creative and individual use of the product in an original manner is the order of the day Tasteful decorating is usual- ly more a matter of imagina- tion than cost. Panelled wain- scots rather than a full a single accent decorative and even panelled ceilings are becom- ing more common. bedrooms and hallways have been added to the living room and den areas. Bees travel far afield Without there is no honey. A pound of honey may hold the essence of two million blossoms. Bees re- quire every bit of their renowned energy to gather it. Even in regions where flowers a bee colony may fly trips and log miles to produce just one pound of honey. Wallpapering no longer sticky lutstanding whisky is a Canadian heritage. Taste our classic example. Introducing HERITAGE DittiUcd and bottled in Canada If you ever wanted patterns on your there never was a better time than now. New wall-coverings are easy to put simple to clean and a breeze to take down. At one removing old- type wallpaper was a soggy but wall coverings are no longer called for the very obvious reason that many are made of are vinyl-coated or have other wonder ingredients that have transformed them in recent years. And this is also the they no longer have to stay on the wall forever. whenever you see one described as it means that when the time comes to take if off you can just take hold of one corner and peel it off as clean as a whistle. That time comes when you or when you just get tired of looking at the same old pattern. If all this sounds too to be true and you can't possibly see why it would you should know about the developments that go on behind the scenes in the laboratories of manufacturers where many of the new processes have been pioneered. They've produced a special non-woven backing with enough strength to resist tearing when you pull. Then this was combined with exact- ly the right amount of in special- formula and strip- pability becamse reality. And il hnw the wall-covering has been up either. Because many of the strip- pable wall coverings you find are likely to be vinyl or vinyl- coated an added bonus is their washability. This is wonderful for removing spattered grease in the kitchen or the children's embellishments anywhere. Even the lush-looking flock patterns can be washed with soap and water because the flock fibres are made from a synthetic that is permanently adhered to the backing. Some vinyls have the extra advan- tage of being made so that they This means that steam or humidity will not result in mildew or fungus. If this is not already enough built-in there are many patterns that are not only strippable and but also pre-pasted. All you have to do with pre- pasted is to dip a strip into the waterbox. Then you lift the strip -out of the box and smooth it on the wall. You can make sure that it is on exactly where you want it because the paste will stay wet for 15 minutes or more. There'll always be a wall.' Whv not have fun with TQLLS HEAVY Austria has the highest rate of accidental death of any country in the world.

When receiving loose Roses Inc. recommended that the first thing to do is to remove any leaves that might decay under water in the vase or arrangement. Cut an inch off the end of each stem with a sharp knife. Do not scrape the bark when the leaves or thorns are removed. Flowers Canada recommends that the roses be placed in clean deep vase of warm water to which has been added a floral preservative such as If leave them in a cool room or refrigerator to for 2 to 4 hours before arranging. If for ease in you do use a porous saturate it thoroughly in advance in clean water con- taining or a floral preservative and use a vase large enough to permit submerging the block of foam. Add water daily to replace that which is used by the flowers. When receiving roses already arranged add water immediately and refill the fase daily.
