-M*v 23, 1976 Owhnlwv *wt v«»iiii» --- How Does Your Garden Grow? Annml Rose Show Scheduled for Next Sunday ByABMHtvir* Careen Editor The 52nd annual rose show staged by the Charleston Rose Society, is coming up on , May 30. Now don't go up : to the capitol rotunda. It : hasn't been held there for three or more years! It's '·· held in what they call the Conference Center. -That's the "little" building sandwiched between two taller buildings ac- fross the street from the [State Capitol (on the ' north side of Washington St.) It's behind the foun- Htwtrt tain. You say your roses won't be ready? Sure they will. Go out and have a chat with them. In a firm voice say: "If you don't shape up by May 30th I'm going to pull you out by the roots and plant chrysanthemums." That'll do it. You may win a ribbon or a trophy. The show is open to the public, of :ourse, and all classes are open to all imateur rose growers. Entries will be received from 7:30 to 10 v.m. on May 30, and judging will begin iromptly at 11 a.m. The exhibit will be open to the public at :30 p.m. with awards presented at 5 o'c- ock. If you have any questions, call Mr. or irs. Carl Inman, co-general chairmen of he show - 727-3898, or Richard Beer, resident of the Charleston Rose Society -346-5143. * · » SPEAKING of roses, Carter Giltinan nd her city beautification workers plant- d some 69 roses in the rose garden in rant of the YMCA recently. And Dick and Jean Beer set out 24 rose ilants at the Sunrise rose garden. "How ome?" I asked innocently. "Well," Dick eplied, "somebody had to do it and as tarry Truman once said, the buck stops Kre." I think we owe all these people a round (applause. Carl and I set out a half dozen r so roses recently, and I was ready to rawl in the last nole...and he did all the igging! Well done, folks! leaves? A reader wants to know and I can't tell her a thing, except that it might be too close to the air conditioner. Anybody have any ideas? «· · AND HOW do you "start" a papaya seed? Guy Jarrett of Elkview says he doesn't see why you couldn't grow a papaya if you can grow an avacado, and I don't see why not either. But how do you go about it? · * * RUTH WHtTAKER reports that she's found a use for old typewriter ribbons. "Use them to tie up your bulb foliage," she reports. "It's messy, but the ribbon is strong and won't cut into the stems." This sounds like a great idea, and you could go even further and use the ribbon to tie up almost anything - from tomatoes to morning glories! Which brings up a point: if you're new at flower gardening, remember that all bulb foliage should be allowed to turn brown and dry up before it's cut off. It doesn't look pretty, true, but it's nature's way of storing up food in the bulb for next year's blooms. My mother used to braid ours, and then she switched to rubber bands. INCIDENTALLY, a co-worker reports hat the iris garden at Sunrise is being mothered with weeds. How about that, ris society? · · · MR. NICE GUY here in the office re- icrts that there evidently is rampant jeal- tusy among house plants. He gave his wife ,Big Shirley) a giant bird's nest fern re- *ntly. A real monster. She positioned it ,iear another bird's nest fern which she ·ad been nursing along for some time with nor results. The smaller plant took one 1 ,30k at the newcomer and began putting ait shoots and growing apace. "It's trying o catch up," N.G. reports. ' · · ' . . . - ··*. OKAY, you house plant growers, what causes brown spots on avocado plant MORE ABOUT roses: »You'll have more blooms on your roses if you snip off the spent blossoms. As blooms wither they no longer require nourishment and the plant diverts it to production of seeds in the rose hip directly beneath the spent flower. With removal of the old blooms the nourishment that would have been expended on producing seeds is directed into growing additional flowers. »So you prefer to remove the thorns before arranging roses? There's a right way and a wrong way to go about this. Rose People advise against using a sharp knife. They say this will bruise or cut the bark, shortening the life of your bouquet. Their way may be better for the rose but it sounds rather grim for us humans: "Wrap your hand with several layers of paper towel or protective thicknesses of cloth and zip downward." Ouch! "·These same Rose People offer some brief suggestions for longer cut-rose life: First, cut the stems on a slant with a sharp knife. Next, immerse the stems in water as hot as your hand will tolerate and leave them in the water until it cools. Finally, place in a container in a cool, dark location (the refrigerator is ideal) for at least two or three hours before arranging. Hints for Food RunUi-Wtliut Dretitog for Metti Mix together IVi cups mayonnaise, Vi cup finely chopped cooked beets, Vi cup chopped toasted California walnuts, 1 tablespoon each chopped parsley and horseradish, and salt to taste. Chill well. Delightful with a buffet cold plate arrangement of turkey, chicken and ham slices. For distinctive sandwiches, spread it on variety breads and use these meats as filling.
