THE GARDEN HOW TO MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 25 May 1951
' ipHli i^iRlli/li.|ii; ? ATTRACTIVE Neatly kept edges enhance the beauty of flower beds and borders* and are in reality* the finishing touch es which mean so much to the garden as a whole. There are so many plants suit able for edgings, that an almost unlimited choice is presented. There are the pretty English Daisies, which have been im proved so much of late that flowers almost two inches in diameter are quite common. Their dwarf habit of growth, together with the tremendous number of blooms always adorn j ing the plants, entitle these old favourites to rank high in the selection for edging plants, or to mass in the foreground of beds. JJemesias have had more at tention bestowed upon them of late. They deserve it. Give them a rich light soil; plant them closely together, and they will put up a display of colour that They grow about a foot or 18 inches high, which suits them for edgings to large beds or for massing. The 'Compacta' strain is more dwarf and com pact than, the 'Sturm...

EDITORIAL. SHEEP DRIVE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 25 May 1951
EDITORIAL. SHEEP DRIVE On all sides one hears com ments concerning the magnifi cent manner in which the citi zens of Boorowa and district are rallying to support the Edgar Corcoran Appeal. In ail sections of the district people are making contribu tions, organising, functions, and generally throwing them selves wholeheartedly into the project. The list of donations already is rising to very cred itable proportions, and there is no doubt that once the var ious competitions being or ganised are well under way, and the functions being ar ranged by sub-committees in surrounding centres begin to add their returns to the list, the total will be such as to in dicate the depth of regard in which Edgar is held by this district, and the unanimity of the spirit which1 prompted the formation of the Fund. W^re-well-aware-that no tb^g. We^can «ay, give or do can in any way compensate Edgar for the dreadful loss lie has suffered. Neither gift nor sympathy can palliate Mb suf fering or recompense h...

SAFFRON THISTLE MAY BECOME PROBLEM In N.S.W. Wheat Crops This Year [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 25 May 1951
rniwiJdVLr ? ; ;' ??? . . . ; ? Inil^S^^t &ops 'If there are good falls of rain during the next two months, wheat crops in New South Walps are highly like ly to suffer, severe infesta tions of saffron thistle— as a . result of last year's abnornt ' al rains which encouraged the development and seeding of the thistle in most parts of the State,!! warned K. R. Green, Weeds Officer of the Department of Agriculture, in Sydney this week. 'Experiments have shown, however, that quite small appli cations of rbfermone-type weedi cides will control saffron thistle in crops, provided the spray is applied early. 'The wht)at should be well established before spraying (about six inches high) and the saffron thistle in the rosette stage,' he added. 'M.C.P.A. and the amine or sodium salts; of 2, 4-D are the best to use — at the rate of & to I lb. of acid-equivalent per acre. . ^ : 'The esters of 2, 4-D at 6 to 8 oz. per acre should also give good results, but they may cause crop dam...
