Latest Garden News

Down goes another garden cliche! At the Davis Experiment Station in California, recent studies show that cultivation soon after a rain or following irrigation may increase rather than decrease water loss from evaporation.

The big revolution ... boating

Boating is fast becoming America's most popular sport. To those who aren't aware what is happening, it's still mystifying to see a "yacht" zipping along behind an automobile on an Iowa highway, or a cruiser parked in a two-car garage in an inland suburb.

Here's your Decorating Preview

Venetian blinds have a new look. One maker is showing metal slats with a linenlike appearance in a whole range of attractive colors. If you prefer a "wood grain," for your rooms with wood paneling, you can have that, too. Another company has developed a blind that will completely shut out light so that daytime nappers can sleep more easily. Colors are pastels that will blend with your color, scheme, not the green or black usually used for room darkening.

Tomorrow's auto engine . . .

It won't be long now-- many automotive engineers say five years-- until you'll be able to buy a gas-turbine automobile. You'll have a choice. The present piston engine will continue to be popular. While it would be as foolish to wait for the gas-turbine engine as it would have been for your grandparents to hold off buying a Model T until the V-8 engine appeared, the gas turbine is as surely the engine of the future as the self-starter was the successor to the hand crank.

NEW YORK CITY

Last year, some 13 million people visited New York City. But countless others seem to agree with the novelist who said: "New York is like something out of this world; everything goes 10 times too fast-- the elevators, the taxis, and the dollars."

How to bring an old house up to date

Sometimes money is hard to come by, but remodeling money is only painful by degrees. You can get a start just on the price of a bucket of paint. You can wait two months or two years (after all, you've lived in the house all this time) before raiding the budget again. You can do it all at once--hiring outside help or doing it yourself as you have time and money. That's the advantage remodeling has over building new.

Problem parent or teacher's pet

The way you hit it off with his teacher has much to do with how your child will get along in school, particularly in the first grades. If you don't like and respect his teacher, your child probably won't care for her, either. And if a teacher considers you a "problem parent," she'll have difficulty being fair and impartial toward your child.

Start heathers and broadleaf evergreens from cuttings. Root them in vermiculite or sharp, clean sand. Divide and replant Oriental poppies and bleeding-hearts while they are dormant. Do the same for lilies-of-the-valley, selecting sturdiest roots to reset.

The diary of a Plain dirt gardener

Aug. 1 Late yesterday, there was a lovely, beautiful slow rain. It soaked in the plant food I had spread around the roses and mums. My first job was to pick a big basket of sweet corn and a yellow straight-neck squash. Then Maggie cooked half the corn for supper. We took the rest and the squash down to Janet.

THE MAN NEXT DOOR

Our dog pound has a waiting list of kids who want to adopt stray pups, and the warden views the situation with quiet approval. "All this grown-up talk you hear about boys going to the dogs," he says, "doesn't worry me a bit as long as I see dogs going to the boys."
