NAME ADDRESS (Leth.) YOUR GARDEN By Isabelle R. Young, F.R.H.S. I SNOW MOLD HAVE been asked to writs on snow mold, which seems to be a subject I receive a num- ber of enquiries on in the spring. The time to prevent this type of injury is by treating the grass in the fall. Damage to lawns by snow mold is fairly widespread in this, area and people usually start looking for a cure in the spring after the damage has been done. This usually shows up in the way of irregular web- like patches of dead turf. Snow mold is caused by a number of low temperature fungi known as basidiomycete. These are not the same as the fungus causing snow rapid in eastern Canada and the eastern United States, but the effects are somewhat similar and the treatment re- quired here is different. These fungi are most active at tem- peratures just above freezing (34 degrees 'F.) Most of the damage is done in the early spring, but there are many pe- riods "during the winter when conditions are favorable to their growth. If there are large, deep pat- ches of JSDOW lying on the lawn in the spring, it is a good idea to get rid of these as this is often sufficient to save the lawn, as it is under these that the concentration of gas be- comes high enough to kill, the grass. But, very little can be done once snow mold has started in the spring ex- cept to reseed bare areas. If the damage is light, however, A Porch Can Add Value, Beauty If you've been thinking about adding a porch to your home this book will tell you how to do it easily and inexpensively. Part one takes, the mystery out of preparing footings and foun- dations and continues step-by- step to covering with a shed or gable roof. Part two tells how to enclose the porch. Simplified directions also tell you how to cut through a wall or remove a window to install a door. Whether you're build- ing or remodelling this handy book will show you how to do it and save money.

If dead, you'll able to pull the grasss out. Masses of white mycelium be- come apparent soon after the snow melts. Some grasses are more susceptible to winter-kill than others. Kentucky or Mer- ion Blue Grass provide the best turf for lawns on the prairies and they.are more resistant to winter Creeping _bent- grasses are the most resistant to winter kill and are used extensively on golf courses. Win- ter injury is more prevalent on Creeping Red Fescue. Annual Blue Grass and Red Tops, As mentioned previously, treatment must start in the fall the first permanent snow, which is sometimes around the end of October. Commercial preparations available include Mertusan, used at the rate of 4 ounces per square feet. There fa also Calomel, Mercuric chloride and Caloclor. Mercuric Chloride is applied at UK same rate as Merfusan, or if mixed with clean, fine sand as a carrier, the mixture is applied at the rate of 10 quarts to square feet. K combined with water it is used as a spray at the rate of 6 gallons to square feet. (Mix with a small amount of hot water and then add the de- sired volume of cold The mercuric chloride is very corrosive to metals and so non- metallic containers should be used. Great care should he ta- ken as this is very poisonous. ALL materials should be used strictly according to manufac- turers' recommendations. With regard to snow mold PRE- VENTION is the remedy. Q. Mrs. L. My Christmas Cactus is five or six years old and has never bloomed. I would appreciate it if you could send me some information. A It is hard to say why your plant does not bloom. You seem to be doing all the right things keeping it in a dark place and withholding water.. A long stretch of darkness -is vi- tal to the formation of buds and sometimes even th.s slightest bit of light will be detrimental (street light or Cool night conditions are also neces- 50 degrees F. It is recommended that from August on, until buds are vis- ible the plant be kept in a cool, airy position and withhold water entirely in October. After buds are visible bring to a bright sunny window and water when the plants show signs of dryness.

I Cast Your Spell As hobgoblins and witches prepare to make their annual Msautt, take a few minutes to make your home more festive with some brightly painted dec- orations. It's effective and econ- omical with these easy sugges- tions from the Canadian Fatal Manufacturers Association. Make your front door black as the night with large sheets of construction or poster paper. Tape it on and paste cut-outs of witches, black cats, or ghosts. Outline or paint details with luminescent paint (available in artist's supply and novelty stores) to create an especially eerie, glow-in-the-dark effect. If you have lots of confidence in your artistic ability, sketch in the design and apply paint di- rectly to tie paper. This same luminescent paint sprayed on your children's cos- tumss will help protect excited youngsters from unavoidable ac- cidents while darting across streets. Inexpensive wicker or willow baskets are perfect for holding the Halloween treats you'll be giving the children. Spray them with bright colored paint black and orange1 predominat- ing, of course. Since they're un- breakable, they may be placed near the door and the trick- or-treaters can help themselves with no worry about spills. If a party is on your agenda, these same wicker or. willow baskets make ideal servers for potato chips and other snack- type foods. After they've been painted, line them with color- ful paper napkins. The Halloween theme can eas- ily be carried throughout the house. Enamel cheerful baskets of straw flowers for bright ac- cents in any room. Straw flow- ers, spray shellacked to pre- serve their bright colors, will last indefinitely and never need attention. Let the children in on the preparations for the party making napkin rings. First, cut- up strips of newspaper and mix them with flour, a little salt and water to make a paste. Mold the paste into rings large enough to slip napkins through. When dry, enamel them bright orange or black, and add some dimestore decals of pumpkins, witches and black cats. They'll add a special decorating touch to your Halloween table. With just your imagination and paint, you'll be the WIZ- ARD in your house. YOUR BEST PLACE TO SHOP Word gets around.
