Garden Tips By the Morning Glory Garden Club PLANT SHRUB SCREEN It is not too late to plant that shrub border or screen if balled or burlapped or container grown plants are used. A screen is frequently needed to provide privacy, hide an objectionable view, serve as a windbreaker to reduse-'traffic noise. Instead of using a masonry wall or board fence, around the entire area, the same effect can be achieved with a living screen of plants. In order to be attractive and effective, a shrub border should be fairly uniform in height, density and rate of growth. The best effect can be obtained by using the same species of plant throughout the planting. Shrub borders containing plants with colorful fruit will add interest to the winter landscape and provide food for the winter birds. Because of their size Ligustrum, pyracantha and glossy privet are better suited for screens. Too often they are used as foundation planting where they must undergo constant pruning to keep them within bounds. Ligustrum and pyracantha are very good in Del Rio. A cluster of small trees can add a pleasant change to shrub" borders. Tree grouping can be used effectively at the corner of the yard or to break visually an over long line of shrubs. A living screen is slower than a fence or wall but it usually creates a more pleasing picture enclosure and is often better at reducing the force of the wind. PLANT VINES All good gardeners like to create more livable surroundings as well as add fragrance and beauty to their planting. One of the often neglected plant groups which can also hide something around your yard or house that is ugly can be . accomplished by planting vinesi Climbers of many types have important use in the landscape. Carolina yellow jasmine decks many an outdoor living terrace. Many fences can be made attractive by planting jyy or small fig-leafed vines. Garden Information MRS. JOHN ALMOND JR. If your legs are less than perfectly smooth, don't wear Hot Pants without pantyhose. The hose will hide any wrinkles, spots or imperfections that you would prefer to keep to yourself. They cover a multitude of sins. ' AQUARIUMS FISH & SUPPLIES 90S E. 6th 775-4998 from the bedroom store . . . in thermoweave for year-around comfort! +SPECIAL LOW PRICES—BUY NOW!* J. P.
