Nearly every spring, people ask, "What can I do about With the heavy snow experienced in most parts of the Prairies during the winter, there could be trouble with snow mould or or other lawn diseases. In the Lethbridge and adjacent areas, snow mould is ap- parently caused by a group of low-temperature fungi known as basidiomycete, which include rusts, smuts-and mushrooms, and are most ac- tive at just above freezing. These fungi do not kill the grass themselves, but they produce hydrogen cyanide gas which is extremely poisonous to both plants and animals, and the concentration does not have to be very high to cause damage. Here is what happens in the spring when the snow begins to melt, if there are large, deep patches of snow left on the lawn, if this snow is not removed, you could get a concentration of gas high enough to kill the grass. If you have Chinook conditions in your area, there may be many periods during the winter when things are favorable for the fungus growth. The first sign of snow mould is the appearance of irregular, web- like, whitish patches of dead turf, which become discolored as they dry out. Once snow mould has started, there is ac- tually very little that can be done. If the grass crowns are still alive, the patches will more than likely grow. (You'll be able to pull the grass out quite readily if However, for the grass to revive again might take a good part of the summer, so your lawn is going to look rather untidy. You could apply Caloclor. Mersil, Merfusan or Puracide spray, according to directions. Otherwise you will have to resort to reseeding. It goes without saying "prevention is better than cure." The time to do something about snow mould is in the fall, before freeze-up, applying the chemicals men- tioned or using Ortho Dyreni when the snow goes in the spring. Carpentry Corner Extra bathroom handy If you have a growing fami- ly and find that the morning "rush hour" creates bathroom congestion, you've probably often thought how wonderful it would be to have an extra bathroom installed but the cost of such a job has prohibited you from carrying out your plans.

As well as paying immediate dividends in comfort and convenience, you'll find it will add many dollars to the value of your home should you ever decide to sell. This 158-page book explains with simple step by step directions and over 100 work- ing drawings every facet of the work that needs to be done. Selecting the location, planning fixture placements, wiring, carpentry, tiling, etc. To make it even easier for you, there's a two page glossary of plumbing ter- minology and 26 pages of il- lustrations identifying the various joints and fixture, needed.

Some grasses are more susceptible to winter injury than others. Merion or Ken- tucky bluegrass provide the best turf for lawns on the Prairies as they are more resistant to winter injury. Creeping bent grasses are the most resistant to winter-kill and are used extensively on golf courses. Winter injury is more prevalent to creeping red fescue and Red Top. As mentioned previously, treatment must start in the fall before the first permanent snow, usually before the end of October. Snow mould most often occurs in lawns that are poorly constructed with un- satisfactory drainage and maintenance. A vigorous, healthy lawn is the best control of the disease. FOR A GOOD LAWN: Prepare a proper seed bed with good topsoil and proper drainage. Sow the right grass seed for the right conditions shade, etc. June is a good time to seed lawns as the late frosts are then over. Mow high 1% inches to inches, and keep the mower sharp. This is es- pecially very important for the first cutting. Otherwise you will damage the young grass. Water thoroughly a good soaking once a week does more good than several light sprinklings. Keep weeds un- der control. Fertilize in the spring, early summer and ear- ly fall. There are several good fertilizers on the market for this purpose. Mr. P. Please tell me when is the best time to trim oat raspberry canes? Ans. Some canes die out during the winter anyway, so I think the best method is to prone oat all old ones in the spring, leaving the newest and strongest ones. Fool care Proper care of garden tools not only extends their life, bat makes them easier to use. Make sore all tools are clean and rust-free before and after storage.
