TO-DAY'S GARDEN HINT. In the early spring many roses are subject to attacks of mildew. The disease attacks the young foliage, when damp, with flowers not noticeable on the foliage till the warmer weather advances. In the earlier stages of the disease, the plants should be treated. An old remedy Is to dust the foliage when damp, with flowers of sulphur, but it is rather un- sightly. The best remedy is to spray with potassium sulphurate at tlie rate of two ounces to four gallons of water. Use the spray .at in- tervals of three ^peks ..during the spring. ^ '

UNTIL OCTOBER. COLD SPELL ENDED. SOME RAIN PROBABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier-Mail — 30 August 1933
UNTIL OCTOBER. COLD SPELL ENDED. SOME RAIN PROBABLE. The recent appearance of faculae on the southern sunspot track is re- sulting in a sudden change, and some precipitation may be expected in ac- cordance with the indicated rain groups of cyclical origin (writes Mr. Inigo Jones). It is not likely that any further decided cold will be observed as, in accordance with the cyclical control, the winter is prac- tically ended. Another cold spell is likely early in October, and in accordance with its intensity will be the extent and severity of the dry period which will follow it. This varies somewhat on the controlling cycles and it is not possible to decide this point lill the actual time of this cold arrives prob- ably about' October 3 or 4. VALUABLE RECORDS. Two very valuable records of rain- falls over long periods have been re- ceived at the Bureau of Seasonal Forecasting. One from the Radcliffe Observatory of the University of Ox- ford gives monthly details from 181b 1930, and the ...
