Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta HOME OF THE WEEK The popularity of tri-level homes or "splits," as they are often called, is because they combine the good points of both ranch and two-storey homes. The noise factor is reduced as in a two-storey design, yet distance between floors is a minimum for those who don't enjoy stair climbing. A split is a happy compromise, for lot frontage, between a two-storey and a long ranch home. S3-451 can be built on an 80 foot lot or, if the enclosed terrace is omitted, on 65 feet frontage. However, the terrace achieves an attractive element of privacy. The sheltered front entrance has a fluted glass panel beside the door and the guest closet in the front all has built-in shelves on either side. An arch between living room and nook, and sliding glass doors between nook and activities room, give a large "U" shaped active centre for entertaining and gracious living. For convenience in summer, there are also sliding glass doors from living room to terrace. The activities room has wood-panelled walls and the fireplace with its slate hearth is in the rear wall so it can be seen and enjoyed right through to the living room. Three bedrooms and bathroom are only 7 steps up, and the garage, utilities and a con- venient washroom only 5 steps down from the kicthen. If 1,399 sq. ft. is more home than is required, designs S3-231, 1,' 134 sq. ft., and S3-253, 1257 sq. ft. have almost identical floor plans. Their rooms are slightly smaller and they do not have the activities room extension at the rear, nor the enclosed terrace. S3-231 can be built on a 60 foot lot and S3-253 on 65 feet. HOMOGRAF CO.

ADDRESS ................................................. (Let*.) is YOUR GARDEN By Isabella R. Young, F.R.H.S. DIVIDING PERENNIALS 1VOW is the time to move perennials. Those that bloom in the spring may be split up and transplanted in the fall. This should be done early enough in the season for them to get their roots established again before winter sets in. Those that bloom in the fall are dug up and replanted in the spring, doing this before the plant has started too much growth. If they get too big, it is too hard on the plant and it really sets them back. Iris are best replanted in early August; oriental poppies should be moved in August as this is when they are dormant, and pennies are moved in early September. Water the plants, to be moved, well beforehand, ro when they are dug up as much earth as possible will cling to them. When separating, try to disturb as little as, possible. Have your hole ready before you dig the plant so the roots will not suffer from the drying effects of the sun or wind. For protection, they could be covered with damp sacking or newspaper. Trim the tops off the plant to about 6 inches before digging up. This will facilitate easier handling. Alter replanting, partly fill in the hole with earth and then water with your starter fertilizer, 10-52-17 at the rate of 2 tbsps. per gallon of water. Let mis settle then fill in with the rest of the earth, firming well around, the plants. If the day is hot, try and do this chore later in the day. This will help the plant to get better established. Newly planted perennials should be mulched with straw, peat moss, tree branches, etc. but wait until the ground is frozen before doing this. The Idea of a mulch is to keep the ground frozen as long as possible so growth does not start too early in the spring. Remove mulch gradually in spring, some time around the end of April, if weather permits. For those who are new at transplanting, here are a few tips with regard to some of the plants: The trollius or globe flower has beautiful pale yellow to orange flowers blooming in late spring. These can be divided either in the spring or fall. Bleeding heart is divided at this time of year. Coral bells are a favorite with humming birds. These, also, may be divided in either the fall or spring. Phlox may be split up now, hut only if they have grown so large the plant is beginning to deteriorate. About every third or fourth year is often enough. Peonies will last almost indefinitely in one place if planted properly the first time. They may be moved now or early in the spring. The roots are fleshy and very brittle so great care must be taken when digging the plant up. Split up the old plant so there are at least three or four good buds on each division. Do not plant too deep - this is one of the reasons they fail to bloom. Two inches of soil above the crown is enough. If you are using manure, it should be well Hotted and should not come in contact with the roots of the plant. Primulas are also divided at this time. Shasta daisies are divided every second or third year. Columbine and any of the sedums and saxifrages may be divided or transplanted at this time. Chrysanthemum cuttings should be taken to start new plants which can be put out in the garden next summer. * * * Mrs. P. - Could you tell me the name of the tulips that have several colors on the same flower. Ans. I think the ones you are referring to are the "Painted Rembrandt Tulips". The petals have variations of almost every color. New protective package for garden seeds It is amazing but true that tiny seeds will often produce large, beautiful plants on which will grow exquisite flowers. This of course can happen only if the seed Itself contains life. McKenzie Seeds are introducing to Canadian gardeners LIFE SEALED packaging - the package that protects and preserves the miracle of seed life. Immediately after harvest seed is brought into the McKenzie plant where it undergoes a drying process which conditions it in preparation for packaging. Seeds are packaged and sealed on fully automatic equipment in the McKenzie LIFE SEALED vapor-proof foil pouch which protects the seed for at least three yean.

Due to the number of letters asking more than one question it Is requested In future enquiries that only ONE question be submitted each time as it it Impossible for Mrs. Young and do her practical garden* to reply to all.correspondence ing as well. It's time to repair your roof By MR. FIX Roof repairing is not for everyone. If you get vertigo on a small stepladder, you are one of the ones it isn't for. Even if you are good at heights, a roof with a steep slope is only for the surefooted. But some houses are low with gently sloping roof and the repair may be at the low edge. Some roofs are flat (or almost flat) and can be worked on by most anyone. Assuming you can get up there and back safely am) without nervousness, you will not find the work itself very hard. Pick a day when the weather is moderate. Don't go up on a hot day any more than you would on a cold one. Pick a day that is warm and not windy. Damaged or missing shingles can easily be spotted from the outside. Leaks are something you discover indoors on a rainy day. The problem here is to determine the exact spot of the leak. Water may run along the underside of the roof for a short distance before it starts dripping. Get up under the attic roof on a clear day and look for a spot where the light comes in. Run a piece of wire up through the bad spot so you can find it on the outside. Naturally, flat roofs are easiest to repair. You find these on some garages, porches and even a few houses. A flat roof is covered with roll roofing. Small cracks develop in time and can be filled with as phalt cement spread generous iy. Large cracks or bulging areas that look as though they are about to split should be patched. Use a piece cut from new roll roofing. Cut a patch larger than the damaged area Remove all loose pieces from the crack. If it's a bulge, slit it so that it lies flat. Apply the asphalt cement and press the patch into place. Nail the edges down with roofing nails, then cover the edge and the nail heads with more cement. Asphalt shingles can be replaced when one is damaged but a little care is needed. You will have to lift the edge of the shingle above the damaged one to pry up the nails. Don't try this on a cold day. Asphalt shingles get brittle in the cold. Once the nail is removed, remove the broken shingle and slide the new one in its place Place nails so that the upper shingle will cover them. Dab a little asphalt cement on the head to avoid leaks. Damaged wood shingles should be split and the pieces removed. Then pull out the nails if completely exposed or cut with hacksaw blade. Slide a new shingle of the right size into place. Use a block of wood or another shingle to protect the edge of the new one when you hammer it Unto place. Drive nails through the spaces between the shingles above. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
