Once you decide on the container, it'stime to think about the plants. Here are a few suggestions to keep in mind. First, consider the environment. The plants should be the kind that can tolerate humid conditions and don't need direct sunlight. Miniature and slow growing plants are best. If you want to grow woodland plants in your terrarium, there are nur- series that specialize in wild plants for terrarium culture.
Mosses, lichens, ferns, and low growing ground covers are recommended. Because they normally grow out-of-doors, woodland plants need a light and cool place to grow in your house if the terrariums are to last for more than a few months. Plants that come from tropical and sub-tropical areas will thrive for a long time in an enclosed container. However, ali plants called terrarium plants may not actually be suitable.
Don't buy plants with fleshy or succulent stems such as sedums or impatiens as they will quickly rot. The following are a few of the plants suit- able for terrarium culture: Tree-like: dwarf euonymus polyscias Small foliage: small leaved begonias prayer plant tropical ferns - Polystichum tsus-simense Ground covers: selaginella dwarf creeping fig Flowering: miniature African violets miniature gloxinias iSinningia Some others that will eventually get too big: dracaena episcia saxifraga — strawberry begonia Australian umbrella tree seedling finger aralia pilea - artillery plant ardisia podocarpus After you've selected the container and the plants, start assembling the materials needed for planting.
These are potting soil, aquarium charcoal, deco- rator moss sheet sphagnum moss , sand or perlite, and bird gravel. Paper towels and a small artist's brush may come in handy. I also use a chopstick to help in planting and arranging the plants. Line the bottom of the container with moistened decorator sphagnum moss or moss you've collected, the green side against the glass. To moisten the moss, soak it in warm water then wring out thoroughly.
Next put in about 2 in. This makes the medium light and porous. Add some stones or pieces of bark to create a natural woodsy landscape. Push them slightly into the soil so they are partly covered. Put the largest plants in first. Fill in with some smaller foliage and flower- ing plants and then some moss. You can make a path or simulate a pond by arranging some of the bird gravel with your paint brush.
Deciding on the right amount of water is probably the hardest part of planting a terrarium. The soil should be evenly moist but not soggy. Because there is no drainage hole, it is important not to over- water. If you do have a flood on your hands, make a wad of paper towels and soak up all the excess water. Generally, V2 cup of water is enough to add to a quart size con- tainer. You should see a film of water on the sides and bottom of the container but not on top of the soil. Once you decide that it all looks really great, wipe any stray soil from the sides of the container and put on the top.
If the cover is the screw- on type, only give one turn so that some fresh air can get in. If the top is glass, put a tiny piece of clay between it and the container on either side of the top. If you are using plastic wrap, make some pin holes in it. As long as there is moisture on the sides or top of the container you won't have to add any water.
Some of my terrariums are watered only twice a year. Put your terrarium where it will be in good light or indirect sunlight. Strong sunlight will cook it. Some landscape maintenance will be necessary from time to time. Every few weeks, remove the cover for a day so fresh air can circulate throughout. Dead leaves and flowers should be removed and overgrown plants trimmed. Elbert Crown Pub. The Green Pages will tell you where to buy your grass, how to keep it green, and lots more. The Green Pages is the Philadelphian's guide to house plants, terrari urns, pruning, vegetable gardens, pests, arboretums, dried flowers, public gardens and a hundred other matters of interest to plant lovers.
This page compliments of King Fifth Wheel Co. Stumbling over botani- cal names may seem a bore, but con- sider how many you use without even thinking — chrysanthemum, begonia, delphinium, forsythia, geranium. Plants of similar characteristics are grouped together in families. Within the families, there are plants having generic or surnames like Begonia, for example.
Each of these surnames the genus also has with it a specific name, denoting a distinct plant species. So, we arrive at the Binomial System, devised by Linnaeus, simply meaning that every plant is known by two names. A third variety name may frequently be added to further describe a plant. First or genus names may derive from Latin or other languages which describe the plant, honor ancient gods or commemorate some legend.
Often, they are based on the name of the per- son who discovered them, or they may be used to honor someone outside the botanical field altogether. The genus Begonia, for example, was named for Michael Be'gon, a seventeenth century governor of Canada and a patron of botany. The second or species name is in some way descriptive of the plant, often telling you what it looks like or where it was discovered.
This information gives the gardener helpful indications of the climate or cultural requirements of the plant. For example, Begonia semperflorens is a plant that flowers continuously while Begonia rotundi- folia has fat round leaves. When both the genus and species names are used, the first letter in the genus is always a capital while the first letter in the species is small e.
Begonia semperflorens. The following list of Latin and occasionally Greek adjectives and their English meanings should help to un- ravel some of the mysteries of horti- cultural nomenclature.

Look for our symbol. The more than 1, plants exhibited here throughout the week represent a wide range of experience among growers.
Some have been at it for more than years, others may have begun growing seriously only in the last year or two. Before the plants were placed in the horticourt, they were examined by a passing committee, an experience that can create anxiety in the most gifted or experienced grower as well as the first-timer.
Some of the plants will be easily identified; similar ones are available at the local nursery or garden center or greenhouse.
Others, for example, a rare rock garden plant, can be obtained only through exchanges among a network of dedicated gar- deners. You cannot tell just by looking which plants are the most difficult to grow. Often even members of the same club or group will differ about the relative hardship in producing particular plants. One plant may be valued because it was produced on a windowsill with great effort and attentior while the same plant would have been a snap to grow in greenhouse. All of these problems are taken into consideration whei the judges pass through awarding the coveted blue, red am yellow ribbons: under what conditions was the plant raised How difficult is it to produce those conditions locally?
Hov well is the plant groomed? Plants that have been awardei blue ribbons consistently in the past may not fare we because new and different plants are competing this year an' have changed the elements of competition. Entries in th horticourt are made because competitors want to share thei enthusiasm about particular plants and want to test thei skills against the best growers in the area. Judging is a diff cult task; there are many complex elements that go into th growing, maintenance and evaluation of the plants in eac section. All plants will be judged or rejudged on three days listed.

The arrangement can be limpid or electrifying; spare or opulent. The people who compete in this section of the Show prepare for months, as an artist will prepare rough sketches, and they work under fierce pressure creating the arrangement in limited time and in a predetermined space.
They choose the theme they will interpret from a number of themes, and they decide whether they will create their arrangement in the large, medium or small niche. Most of the arrangers have a highly developed sense of line, space, color and texture. It comes from practice, working with other arrangers, reading and going to Shows, the arranger's museum. We hope these niches will heighten your apprecia- tion for the infinite variety of flowers in every setting.

North Central District Coolidge Ave. Eastern District Charles City Rd. For all practical purposes, they are sort of like onions and you plant them In the fall, in the spring you get tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths, scillas, snowdrops, and lots more if you get into them and want a lot of spring joy inexpensively.
Once planted, most bulbs keep coming up year after year. But it is important to keep the foliage growing until it turns brown since it is the green leaves that enable the bulb to manufacture the wherewithal to grow and form next year's flower bud. And don't limit your efforts to growing only the more frequently seen daffodils, tulips and hyacinths. Try the little bulbs like Iris reticulata, species crocus and species tulips, muscari and scilla. Always buy top quality bulbs. To force hardy bulbs, it is necessary to give them conditions similar to those in which they grow in the garden: a period of coolness and moisture for maximum root growth, followed by a gradual increase of temperature and light for blooming.
Containers may vary in size depend- ing upon what bulbs are to be grown in them. A 7-in. While bulb pans and azalea pots are the nicest contain- ers for forcing bulbs, they are not the only possibilities. Decorative ceramic pots, if they have a drainage hole in the bottom, can be used. Antique brown pottery salt crocks, sometimes seen at country auctions, can be con- verted to suitable containers by boring a hole in the bottom.
Hardy bulbs for forcing can be pot- ted from September to late November, but daffodils and many of the small bulbs should be prepared as early as possible since they make their root growth in early autumn. Use whatever soil mix you have on hand. Place broken pot chips over the drainage hole and add enough soil mix so that when the bulbs are placed on it, their tips will be about 1 in. Then fill in around them with soil and press it firmly into place. When potting tulip bulbs, place the flatish side of the bulb toward the outside of the pot because the lowest leaf emerges on that side of the bulb.
This helps make a more attractive pot when the tulips are in bloom. A trench in the out- side garden, or a coldframe where they can be dug in and covered with sand or peat moss are both good. But if you are lucky enough to have a root cellar or some other place that stays cold, you can save yourself some work. Some people use their refrigerators. If you do, be sure to put the soaked plant in a plastic bag.
Outside, in the trench, normal rainfall will provide adequate moisture, but in the root cellar, cold- frame or other covered place, extra watering will be necessary from time to time. Another simple method of storage we've heard about is keeping the pots after planting and soaking in a trash can with a 4-in. Examine the pots after eight or ten weeks; some of them will be filled with roots. When this has happened, bring them indoors for gentle forcing. Be sure they have sufficient moisture and place them first in a cool spot such as an unheated room or cold window- sill.
After a week or ten days, they should be showing buds and some color. At this stage they need all the sun they can get, but cool nights. The cooler it is, the longer the flowers will last.

There are, however, many plant materials that succeed under these conditions, as the dried plants in winter and perennials in early spring show in this display.
A slide presentation depicts the plant species suitable to the bog at Awbury, and a self-guided nature trail to the area is available to willing explorers. Adding the extra touch is a selection of bonsai material as well as appro- priate nineteenth-century sculpture. Ways to grow them in your garden are suggested. Here you can visit the outdoor plant breeding workshop and see exactly what hybrids are; how seeds are produced for them; learn why hybrids are usually better than average, and why you shouldn't try to save seeds from them.
Other plant breeding techniques for the development of new flowers and vegetables are also shown. Samples of some of Burpee's finest marigolds, beans, lettuce, summer squash, tomatoes and other plants are included, using the conven- tional linear methods as well as other space-saving techniques for growth.

With improved Rootone F and Transplantone-. Ambler, Pa. Fremont, Gal. Joseph, Mo. Fertilizers are often called plant food, but that is something of a misnomer. Plants do not eat ready-made food the way animals do. They manufacture the bulk of their own food through a pro- cess called photosynthesis, in which the green leaves combine carbon from the carbon dioxide in the air with hydrogen from the water in the soil to form carbo- hydrates.
The energy required to break down the carbon dioxide and water into their component parts is supplied by sunlight. In a very real sense, sun- light is the most important factor in plant growth. No amount of fertilizer can replace it. The carbohydrates formed by photo- synthesis are stored in the stems, roots and seeds in the form of starch and pro- vide all the "food" plants need.
Inci- dentally, the carbohydrates starches and sugar formed in green plants by the process of photosynthesis are the basic food for all animals, including man. So — what's fertilizer? It contains some of the elements plants need in order to transform simple carbohydrates into the more complex substances that make up the various plant tissues. There are ten elements of major importance: oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous, cal- cium, magnesium, sulphur, and iron.
Plants get the first two, oxygen and hydrogen, from the water that they take from the soil, since these are the elements that make water H2O. The third, carbon, comes from the carbon dioxide in the air and enters the plant through pores in the leaves. The other seven are absorbed in dilute solution through the roots and are what we put in the soil when we "fertilize. It is photosynthesis, not the amount of fertilizer, that determines how fast a plant is growing.
There are also a dozen or more minor or trace elements boron, man- ganese, aluminum, copper, zinc, etc. Most of these are found to a suf- ficient extent in water, but so-called "complete" fertilizers also contain them to be on the safe side. Virtually none remain in the soil of potted plants after several weeks of daily watering. Again, the important thing to remem- ber is that none of these elements can help a plant that does not have enough air or water, or sunlight, or is sick, or bug-ridden, or dormant.
What's the difference between organic and inorganic or chemical fertilizer? Principally, the form and availability to the plant. The organic fertilizers — dried blood, bone meal, manure, etc. The microorganisms can only function when the soil temperature exceeds 70 , and even then the process may take days or weeks.
On the other hand, chemical fertilizers are manufactured in forms that can be utilized by the plants immediately. As far as the plant is concerned, there is no difference between organic and inorganic fertilizers. No one has ever been able to differentiate between nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous from inorganic sources and the same elements from organic sources when they are at the stage at which plants can use them.

So, if you're not mixed up by now, take the advice of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and get yourself a box of "complete" water soluble fertilizer and use it, according to the directions, on plants that are growing actively and are in sun or very good artificial light. Note that unless under artificial light, nothing grows much from October to March. There just isn't enough sun. Atlee Burpee Co. Frederick, Inc. MO Exton, Pa. Nl Doylestown, Pa.
