COLD FRAMES One project that I nave just written on to think about for next spring was lilies and pools. Another one that you could work on is cold frames. You could plan all the details Wall fastener devices Fastening to solid plaster or wallboard presents more of a problem than hammering a nail or driving a screw into wood. But the task can be eased considerably by using one of the many fasten- ing devices on the market. The principle for making an attachment to a hollow whether it be made of gypsum board or anything else which isn't fairly is the use of a fastener that spreads after it has been inserted. When this the spreading portion clings to the back of the locking it in place There are several variations of this type of fastener. In most once the fastener is in the the bolt or screw that fits into it can be thus permitting the fixture or other object to be installed at any time. In others such as when using the toggle the bolt portion must be kept in place or the Fastener will lose its grip and fall behind the wall. the toggle bolt usually will told heavier loads than other of hollow-wall fasteners. While all these devices in different it nust always be kept in mind ihat no fastener is stronger han the wall itself. When something extremely leavy is to be t is recommended that the at- achment be made to studs than to the wall. And vhen something light is to be ised. small fibre or plastic ileeves will do the job. They lo not open behind the ml expand and grip the wall vhen screws are inserted into hem. Fastening to solid masonry equires a bit more ince a hole must be made in he masonry to support a wllow shield or tube of ilastic or fibre. out on paper during the winter and be that much ahead when the time comes to construct one. Whether you start your bedding-out and other plants in the house or a cold frame is almost a necessity. These with the high price of more and more people are turning to growing their own etc. from seed. Before the season our greenhouse is so full of plants we don't know what to do with them. We hor- ticulturists are all alike we want to grow this and and if you are like you don't want to waste or throw any surplus plants out. I have friends I exchange but room must be found for the seedlings which are being raised and when they are they take a great deal more room than did the seed flats. It is also very that when the plants reach a certain they have to be or subjected to cooler conditions than the before setting outdoors. A cold frame mar be tem- porary structure used each spring and dismantled when no longer or it can be a permanent like the one I I really don't know what I'd do without it. What is a COLD It is an sash-covered receiving only the heat provided by the covered with either glass or plastic. la most areas of Alberta whtn the night temperatures go below freezing at times in April and it is a good idea to incorporate an electric cable or lamps to provide further protection. You then have a combination cold frame and hotbed. In making a coM the back should be 6 inches higher than the which ihould be at least 12 inches preferably so as to give maximum exposure to the sun. A standard cold frame sash is 3 feet wide and t feet and if these are the frame should be 6 feet wide and the length multiples of 3 feet. For non-standard sizes will have to be changed to suit. Wood or concrete blocks are the preferred materials and supports should be provided ' two sash meet. If plastic is used to cover the apply on both ttrill Ofmmtar protection from the cold. Mylar plastic is very standing up to heavy rain and and also transmits more light than some do. I find that if the weather does become quite a heating cable may not be quite enough to give the plants the protection they require. I have some burlap and canvas that is put on top of the plastic and this brings the etc. through the periods of cold. Some people heap earth and straw around the outside walls to insulate against the cold. This is more for a temporary structure. Too much heat could kill the plants or cause succulent growth so ven- tilation is most essential. Raise sashes to various heights according to existing weather conditions and at times they may be if or raised to the ul- timate height. Mrs. T. My philodendron has different leaves on the same plant. What is wrong with if anything. Ans. There is nothing wrong with your plant. I have one that has plain and variegated which is the normal habit of the plant. There is a service charge of 25 cents if readers wish a personal answer to their gardening problems.

FIX High up on the list of emergency situations that call for fait repairs is a burst water pipe. A stopped drain is a nuisance and messy but you can think about it and gather necessary supplies. A broken window can be covered temporarily. A damaged storm door can be tied shut until the wind dies then removed and reapaired at leisure. But a water pipe that bursts has to be tended to right now. Not a little while from now. This is no time to however. Move quickly and turn off the supply. Ob- You might think so but people have been known to desperately wrap tape or rags or anything else they can get hold of while the water spurts out. First choice is the shut off valve for the affected line. If it doesn't have or you can't spot it right turn off the main valve. This is found where the water line enters the house. With the right equipment most emergency repairs will last indefinitely. It isn't likely that you will have the right equipment on hand and pipes don't seem to burst at convenient times. If you have the time to get buy a special pipe clamp made just for your problem. The clamp consists of two metal halves that are lined with rubber. These fit around the pipe and are held together with nuts and bolts. Tighten these as much as you can once the clamp is in place. A piece of rubber piece from an inner tube or an old hot water bottle for can be placed over the hole and held in place with a hose clamp. A piece of garden hose slit and wrapped around the pipe and held with a clamp is even better. If you don't have a clamp use wire. Twist it tightly around the patch using pliers and placing a piece at each end of the patch. Something you are likely to have around the house is tape. Use electrician's plastic or friction. Wrap tightly around the leak. Try using layers wrapped in opposite directions. This is a tem- porary repair that will hold until you can get what you need. Another temporary repair is using a plug. Use a wood screw or any self tapping screw. Insert it in the hole and tighten until it holds. A little pipe if you have on the threads or even some glue will make it a better patch. A wood shaved to a can be used the same way. Wrap with tape. Make certain your patch is as secure as you can make it. Then turn on the water. It may leak a little but this isn't as bad as water squirting all over the place. Wrap rags around the patch to absorb the TURN OFF MAIN VALVE INNER TUBE AND HOSE CLAMP SPECIAL PIPE CLAMP SLEEVE SOLDERED OVER JOINT slight drip until ybu can remove the patch and replace it with a better one. Joint leaks can sometimes be reapired by coating the joint with epoxy waste. Otherwise re-solder the joint. Melt the old solder with a blow torch then clean the ends and the fittings of all the old solder before re-soldering. Threaded joints should be taken coated with pipe compound and then put back together. The repair in a copper pipe is made by cutting the The Herald- pipe at the leak. Re-join the ends with a copper sleeve thai you fit over the joint.
