CINERARIA cineraria is one of the most fiorgeous of house- plants with its various colors of pink, scarlet, blue, violet, etc. Some produce giant flow- ers, others have small, double, Btar-like flowers. All are easily grown from seed. Strictly tpeatong, Lhe cineraria is a per- ennial, but is usually treated as a greenhouse annual. Now is the time to start them if bloom is expected at Easter. Seed Bown from April lo June pro- duce flowering plants around Christmas and into the New Year. The seeds are very small so a mere pinch from a packet will produce plants. a great many Mix a fine compost of 2 parts loam, 1 part peat moss and 1 part coarse sand or vcrmicu- lite. Whether you use a small flat or a pot, make sure the compost is wet before sowing to prevent the minute seeds from being washed out of place. It might be an idea to mix the seed with some fine, white, dry sand (put in a salt shaker) in order to sow it even- ly. The sand will also supply all the covering that is needed for the tiny seeds. Cover with a piece of Rlass and paper. 7f bottom heat is supplied germi- nation will be quicker. As soon as plants are up give full light to prevent them from becoming spindly. When large enough to handle (about an inch prick out into a compost as be fore, except the' loam is in- creased to 3 parts, spacing two inches apart each way. Be careful when watering not lo disturb the young seedlings. When the plants have formed a good strong root system and the leaves have made a nice rosette, they should be potted up into a inch pot using equal parts of loam and peat moss with a little Do not overwater, especially after re- potting or the plants could rot off at the base. Small gravel should be put in the bottom of the pot for proper drainage. Cineraria grow best in a cold temperature, especially at night about 55 degrees F. or less. Plants that produce plantlets from the base should have these cut out in order to grow a stronger, better shaped speci- men. These may be used to start new plants. A final move lo a 6 or 8 inch pot will bs necessary. While they require a good light, do not give strong, direct sunshine. Most people find the cineraria quite easy lo grow. Sometimes, however, one does run into a few problems. The plants may wilt and the edges of the leaves lurn brown and shrivel. The trouble is usu- ally not caused by disease ot any kind, but by dryness of the air. Plants transpire a consid- erable amount of moisture, es- pecially during hot weather and even though the roots may be moist, the leaves droop. This is Because Ihe foliage is getting rid of moisture faster than the roots arc able to lake it up. Adding more water at this :ime to the pot is not going to remedy the problem. By sup- plying sufficient humidity, the pant will be able to sland warmer temperatures and dry NOW IS THE TIME FOR FALL PLANTING! GOOD STOCK OF TREES and SHRUBS SPECIAL! 6 CUBIC FT. PEAT MOSS Reg.

Misting over the plant wilh water will help, but care is advised or mildew could result. Standing the pot on a saucre of wet sand or gravel is also good. Ciner- aria are subject to aphids and white fly, but with today's mod- ern methods of control (house- plant spray in aerosol container) these should not be too much of a problem. r. P. _ There seems to be a lot of slugs in my flower beds and other parts of the garden What is the best method of get- Battery care can pay off By CARLTON SMITH One of the easiest ways for a car owner to blow f30 or S35 every now anil then is to buy too many balteries. The typical driver, we're told by an authority on the subject, could save to dur- ing liis years of car ownership by having to buy fewer bat- teries if he followed a few simple rules. Generally he wastes tliis money, one of three ways: Buying a battery that's nu- derpowered for his particular car. It will have an unneces- sarily short life. Paying for unnecessary qual- ity. Failure lo give his battery proper maintenance. The only dependable criterion of how much battery you're gelling is the ampere-hour rat- ing. It's a measure of how much electrical power it can fienerale over a given period of time. A car that's loaded with ac- cessories needs a battery with a high power rating. The igni- tion system pulls only 2 or 3 amps; an air conditioner will pull 10 lo 14. As an illustration ol how much pull a battery can stand, the high beam of Lhc headlights will draw 12 to 13 amps. Leaving the lights on for 40 minutes, with the engine off, will drain a full-charged pere-hour battery lo half charge. One rule, Iherefore, is lo make sure replacement baller- ies have as high a power rating us Die original, wliich the man- ufacturer matched to the car's accessories. The length of the warranty is related lo the battery's con- struction and quality and gen- erally reflected in ils price When buying a replacement battery don't buy unneeded bat- lery life. Do you plan on driving Ihp car another year or year anc a half? Then you don't need a 42-month or lifetime warranty your best buy if you plan o keep the car three years or more. The battery with an 18- or 24-month warranty will save money for the owner who's Jlanning a Irade-in wilhin tha ;ime. Car owners sometimes buy Jatteries they don't need be- cause a serviceman has assur them their run-down baltei is worn out and won't hold a charge.
