Plant now for fall decor By Carol O’Meara, Colorado State University Extension

There are 172 days until Thanksgiving, so you’d better hurry if you plan on decorating this year. For a cornucopia of color, get your seeds in the ground before June 15, popping in everything you need to stuff that horn in November. Start by planting two staples of fall decor – miniature gourds and tiny pumpkins. These must-have accents nestle into centerpieces and are easy to grow in our hot, dry summer. Each vine produces enough fruit to make any decorator happy, but because they like to ramble, give them room or train them up a trellis. Customize your plants to fit your decorator’s style, by planting a mix of orange and white mini pumpkins. If you favor a flat pumpkin, orange Jack be Little or white Baby Boo is what you need. But for perfectly round, miniature Jack O’ Lanterns, check out Little October at Botanical Interests ( For a striking red accent, grow

Small to medium sized sunflowers are cheerful in dried arrangements, and keep long into the fall. Harvest when flowers are partially open, cutting the stem off at the length you want for arranging. Then bundle the sunflowers into groups of three, making sure the heads aren’t touching, tie with twine and hang them upside down in a cool, dark place to dry. The flowers will unfurl as they dry.

Instant Summer Potted bulbs add color, style Netherlands Flower Bulb Center

Women know that the perfect twist of silk scarf can catapult an ordinary outfit into a fashion achievement. There’s a joyous insouciance that prevails in such moments. Gardeners feel this thrill too – substitute the perfect plant for the perfect scarf and you understand the appeal of summer bulbs. Placed with strategic aplomb, these sublime sub-tropical plants lend glamour to otherwise ordinary yards and gardens. To sweeten the pot, smart garden retailers are dishing up a broader range of pregrown summer bulbs as potted bedding plants, thus making such treasures as tufted burgundy pineapple lilies (Eucomis), shimmering black-flowered callas (Zantedeschia) and burgundy-splashed ironcross shamrocks (Oxalis) accessible for even the most novice gardener. Now, a new Summer Bulb Primer on uses Flash technology to dish the dirt on top summer bulbs in an entertaining fashion. Newly-updated, is the website of the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center in Danby, Vt. It’s a non-commercial information site filled with images and easy-to-follow howto videos. Here’s a quick look at the top 10 summer bulbs covered in the Primer. All are readily available from garden retailers as bare bulbs or professionally pre-grown potted plants for instant color. • Begonias – Most bulb plants love sun, but begonias are shade dwellers and one of the few that bloom so exuberantly in lowlight settings. Short in stature, begonias have large dense flowers with ruffled petals in rich shades of red, yellow, white, champagne, pink or orange. • Caladium – Another shade lover, caladiums are known for colorful “painted” heart-shaped leaves in mixes of greens, whites, pinks or reds. Some are solid colored, others sport spots, flares or blushes. Caladiums can handle more sun if kept well watered. • Calla (aka Zantedeschia) – A romantic choice for bridal bouquets, calla lilies were once available primarily in white or softest

pink. Today, these lovely summer flowers are also available in red, orange, yellow, rust, lavender, pale green, gold, purple and near-black. In the garden or the vase, the calla’s chalice-shaped flowers and luxurious leaves are elegant and long-lasting. Grow in full sun to partial shade. • Canna – Cannas are garden peacocks, strutting their magnificent foliage. They come in dwarf (18 to 36 inches) and tall (3 to 12 feet) versions. Their broad leaves in shades of green, brown, burgundy, black and multicolored stripes are so dramatic that their fluttery flowers seem irrelevant. Still the flowers are an added treat, worn aloft like little cocktail hats. Grow in full sun, also suited to water gardens, if desired. • Dahlia – Razzle-dazzle dahlias are the surprise of the decade. Once pooh-poohed by the genteel set for their raucous colors and exuberant shape shifting, dahlias today are prized for these same traits. Count on dahlias to anchor the late season garden, blooming their hearts out, till frost slows

them down. Plant dahlias in full sun. Cut flowers for the vase any time you like, but definitely snip off faded flowers. You’ll be happy you did, because the more you cut dahlias, the more flowers they produce. • Elephant Ears – Under this moniker three elephantine-types are pooled – Colocasia esculenta, Alocasia, Xanthosoma – all earmarked by elongated, outsized, heartshaped leaves. These tender toughies tend to transform ho-hum settings into tropical holiday havens. Different varieties have different looks, with green, chartreuse, black or striped foliage. Their heights vary widely, ranging from 12 inches to 6 feet. Elephant ears like sun, partial shade, even deep shade. Suited to water gardens, if desired. • Gloriosa – How truly odd: a summer bulb vine that pulls itself aloft by throwing tiny green tendrils from its leaf tips, its exotic flowers draped here and there like so many huge energetic spiders. Gloriosa lilies boast striking, streamlined petals so deeply reflexed they’re bent back. They are sun

lovers that relish any bit of support, scrambling up a trellis or obelisk, happy to hitch a ride to another woody vine or shrub. When the flower show is over, gloriosa keep going. Their fat undulated seedpods provide garden interest well into fall. Look for varieties with red-and-yellow, orange or yellow flowers. • Lily – While most summer bulbs are frost sensitive tender bulbs, lilies are hardy perennial bulbs and can be planted in either spring or fall. They are often considered the queens of the summer garden in a nod to their regal bearing and sophisticated flowers. Many are wonderfully fragrant, to boot. Lily styles, colors and looks abound – especially now. • Pineapple Lilies (Eucomis) – Certainly this bulb flower is reminiscent of the tufted tropical fruit. With its 15-inch spire of tiny greenish–white (or wine-colored) flowers atop a base of broad, strappy green leaves, eucomis are decidedly dramatic. As potted plants, they’re spectacular.

Water Savings

David Austin 2010 Intro Special to the Times-Call

Effortless ways to conserve in the home

Rosa ‘Princess Alexandra of Kent’ – repeat-flowering English Old Rose Hybrid with approximately 130 petals.

Article Resource Association

David Austin named this rose for Princess Alexandra, a cousin of Queen Elizabeth II who is a keen gardener and great lover of roses. The rose that bears her name has unusually large flowers of a warm, glowing pink. They are full petalled and deeply cupped, the ring of soft pink outer petals enclosing the warm pink inner petals to create a most pleasing effect. In spite of their size, they are never clumsy, being held nicely poised on a well-rounded shrub. Because of their size, there is a lot to be said for planting in groups of three, keeping both flowers and growth nicely balanced. They have a delicious fresh tea fragrance which, interestingly, changes completely to lemon as the flower ages – eventually taking on additional hints of blackcurrants. It is very healthy. Size: 3.5-by-2.5 feet. Hardiness: USDA zones five to nine.

The summer months are right around the corner, and water conservation will undoubtedly be brought to the forefront for those who are impacted by seasonal droughts and water usage restrictions in their towns. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, at least 36 states anticipate local, regional or statewide water shortages by 2013, even under non-drought conditions. “The reality is that water conservation is a responsibility that we all share, regardless of location,” says Carol Anne Kemper, product manager, Delta Faucet Company. “By making small changes around the house and to our daily routines, we can make a significant impact on our water supplies without feeling as though we’re sacrificing our comforts or experience.” She suggests starting with the home bathroom, where the water-saving potential is great. “The EPA estimates that Americans use roughly 3.3 billion gallons of water each day just for showering,” Kemper says. “We can bring that number down by taking a slightly shorter shower or using a water-saving showerhead.” It seems to be abundant, but water is a relatively scarce resource. Less than 1 percent of the world’s fresh water is readily accessible for direct human use. Here are a few tips that you can follow to reduce your water consumption in the bath. • Install a water-efficient showerhead. By installing a water-efficient showerhead, the average four-person household can potentially save an estimated 11,000 gallons of water per year. • Fix a leaky faucet. According to the EPA, a leaky faucet dripping at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year. • Learn to reuse and recycle. Don’t pour water down the drain when there may be another use for it, such as water-

ing plants or cleaning. • Turn off the water. According to the EPA, a bathroom faucet usually runs at 2 gallons of water per minute. By turning off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving, you can save more than 200 gallons of water per month. • Switch to a high-efficiency toilet. A high-efficiency toilet uses less than 1.3 gallons per flush, leading to an average of 20 percent less water per flush when compared to the industry standard of 1.6 gallons. For those who want to conserve water in the bath but are concerned about sacrificing their desired shower experience, Delta Faucet offers its award-winning, exclusive H2Okinetic technology that blankets the body while using less water. The technology manages droplet size, velocity, spray coverage and thermal dynamics, which results in larger water droplets that retain heat longer. The combination of the massaging effect and a denser spray pattern creates a coverage, resulting in water savings of approximately 36 percent. In conjunction with manufacturers, leading organizations are also taking on water conservation as a serious issue. In March 2010, the EPA established its WaterSense specifications for showerheads to promote water efficiency in the shower, product performance and quality. Delta Faucet Co. was the first to earn the WaterSense designation for showerheads, and currently more than 50 percent of its products meet the latest WaterSense specification. Those showerheads and handshowers that meet these WaterSense requirements use about 20 to 40 percent less water than the industry standard.

Market prime for homebuyers

By Scott Van Voorhis

If you missed the April 30 homebuyer tax-credit deadline without snagging a house, pat yourself on the back: You just may turn out to be one of the lucky ones. While the credit is now history, buyers may be able to make up that money – and then some – through some shrewd househunting throughout the next two months, industry experts say. “Savvy buyers can put their feet back into the market,” says Rona Fischman, principal broker at 4 Buyers Real Estate in Cambridge, Mass. “It will be more sane and less of a seller’s market.” Thanks to the tax credit, buyers came into the market in the past year who otherwise might have waited on the sidelines, says Olivier Garret, chief executive officer of Casey Research in Stowe, Vt. Because the credit pulled demand forward, competition among buyers is set to plummet just as the spring market traditionally peaks in May and June. That could create bargains for buyers. Several factors may put downward pressure on home prices and increase seller desperation throughout the next few months, according to some economists and market observers. Home-mortgage rates may climb now that the Federal Reserve has ended its campaign of buying up $1.25 trillion in mortgage-backed securities. In addition, inventory levels may swell as more foreclosures and short sales come onto the market. All of these factors could cause demand for homes to soften. Garret is predicting another step down in home prices across the United States by year’s end. “Nationwide, prices are going to go back down,” Garret says. “We anticipate a decline in pricing in 2010 of 10 percent.” For buyers who are employed and not burdened by debt issues, the weeks ahead

may turn out to be a great period for bargain-hunting. Real-estate agents and housing-market experts offer the following tips for buyers who want to take advantage of the new sweet spot in the market: • Maximize seller desperation. Sellers may be ready to make a deal, especially if they thought they had an agreement lined up before the tax-credit deadline, only to see it fall through. Careful reading of MLS records may offer insights into whether a seller is suffering from such post-tax credit blues. For example, the property’s listing history might show it was placed under agreement in the weeks leading up to the expiration of the tax credit, only to be put up for sale again later. A broker can be especially helpful in uncovering such clues. “The seller is probably going to be more motivated after suffering a disappointment,” says Barry Nystedt, a board member and former president of the Avondale, Ariz.based National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents. • Practice psychological warfare. Sellers determined to hold out for a higher price may require some subtle reminders about the true state of the market, says Mitch Ribak, broker-owner of eHomes Realty Network and Tropical Realty in Suntree, Fla. In a bid to get some sellers to move, Ribak has reminded them the tax credit won’t be coming back and the competition will only mount as foreclosures roll onto the market. • Be choosy but open-minded. Homebuyers may not find the range of selection they expect in today’s market. For starters, the surge of buying that took place before the tax-credit deadline may have put a temporary dent in your local market’s inventory. Also, new homes coming onto the market are more likely to be foreclosures and short sales. There are good homes out there, though some may be diamonds in the rough.

Knickknack holds little value By Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson Scripps Howard News Service

Dear Helaine and Joe: Attached are photographs of a knickknack that was handed down by my mother years ago. It seems like it was in our kitchen for ages. Stamped on the bottom is “c” in a circle followed by “1961,” “Inarco,” “E-19” and “o/c.” I would like to know what the value might be. Thank you, L.R.G. Dear L.R.G.: Head vases were made in a staggering variety of styles by an amazing number of companies. Many were imported from Japan after the end of World War II, but others were made in this country by such firms as Shawnee Pottery of Zanesville, Ohio; the Ceramics Art Studio of Madison, Wis.; DeLee Art and Ruth Sloan, both of Los Angeles; Florence Ceramics of Pasadena, Calif.; and Betty Lou Nichols Ceramics of La Habra, Calif. However, most head vases found on today’s collectibles market were imported from Japan by such companies as NAPCO, Enesco, Fitz and Floyd, INARCO and Lefton. NAPCO is the acronym of the National Potteries Corporation, which was founded in 1938 in Bedford, Ohio, but

in the 1970s it was listed as being located in Cleveland. NAPCO imported from Japan a variety of novelty and giftware items. In the 1940s, Irwin Garber joined the company and is said to have been instrumental in the development of the head vase planters. It is said that Garber designed many of the head vases that were subsequently made in Japan, and that his wife sometimes served as the model and inspiration. Interestingly, this model, with its beribboned black hat and hand held gracefully near the face, is often identified with Hollywood star Lana Turner (1921-1995). The example in today’s question appears to be in good condition, with both the pearl earrings intact and its original pearl necklace. The blush on the cheeks appears to be unmarred, as does the black on the eyelashes, hat and off-theshoulder dress. It has an insurance-replacement value of between $150 and $175. Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson are the authors of “Price It Yourself” (HarperResource, $19.95). Contact them at Treasures in Your Attic, P.O. Box 18350, Knoxville, TN 37928. E-mail them at

Selling your home in tough times

Light up your nights Starry evenings and backyard entertainment go hand-in-hand. When the sun goes down, the right landscape lighting can turn any backyard into a stylish outdoor living space. Try these ideas: • Keep your lighting simple. Start with one main lighting source and add accent lighting to highlight garden features. • For illuminating your entryway, deck and patio, use lighting that mimics moonlight, like new solar-powered lighting systems. • Stagger path lights. Be creative. • Skip the complicated wiring and costly electric bills by using new solar lights. • With energy costs rising, people are looking for ways to cut costs. Decorative lights illuminate specific areas but draw on energy, have wires that need to be hidden and need replacement bulbs. – ARA

Simplify your



A few years ago, it seemed like you could stake a “for sale” sign outside your home and within a few hours you would have multiple offers. Not anymore. Today’s tough economic times mean that home sellers need to do their homework, take a more assertive role in marketing their home and, at times, get creative to help their home stand out from others that are on the market. Regardless of how tough the times are, the fact remains that a nice home, well maintained, in a desirable neighborhood, and priced right will sell more quickly than a home that hasn’t been kept up or hasn’t been priced according to what other homes in the neighborhood would sell for. Whether you’re selling your home as part of downsizing your lifestyle or you’re seeking a larger home for a growing family, the following steps offered by, one of the nation’s leading online sources for real estate law, can pay dividends in helping you achieve a quick sale and a price that reaches your goal. Assemble your Team Most sellers prefer to work with a real estate agent or a lawyer at some point in the process. In fact, in a handful of U.S. states, a lawyer must help finalize the sale. Real estate agents typically charge a commission, about 6 percent, to be split between your agent and the buyer’s agent, if any. Lawyers normally charge by the hour.

Conduct a Pre-Inspection Many states require a home inspection report as part of a disclosure form before placing a home on the market. To make sure your home passes the test, hire a thirdparty home inspector to conduct a pre-inspection of your home to help you make repairs and updates

before an official inspection. Conduct a Comp A “comp” is shorthand among real estate agents for comparing your home to similar types of homes in your area with similar features. This process will help you determine a price range for your home. Review Actual Selling Prices Of course, list prices don’t tell you how much houses ultimately sell for – that’s the comparable data you need. In a hot market, houses might go for well over list price, and vice versa. Go to Open Houses Sellers need to understand what others are doing and offering to sell their homes. The best way to do that is to go to as many open houses in your area and take note of who the potential buyers are, their feedback on nearby homes, and what sellers are offering potential buyers in terms of incentives.

Make your Home as Attractive Buyers will pay thousands of dollars for a home that is tastefully decorated and appears in ready-tomove-in condition. The first place to start is to declutter. Put away any personal items or items of expression that would detract a buyer feeling at home. Hold an Open House Many home sellers find open houses a useful tool. They’re certainly good for bringing in the crowds. In deciding when to hold an open house, look for opportunities when your area attracts a large number of people. Price Aggressively As the seller, of course you would like to get every nickel out of selling your home. The balancing act is finding the right price where you don’t have to cut it multiple times, or a price that is so low that a potential buyer might think there’s something wrong with it.

Adding to your landscape

them great substitutes for flowers, says University of Minnesota horticulturist Emily Tepe. She recommends red oak leaf lettuce and Mizuna mustard.

By Kim Palmer Minneapolis Star Tribune

An edible landscape can be ambitious or as simple as tucking a few edible plants among the ornamentals in your existing beds or container gardens. Here are some suggestions. • Lettuce: Leaf lettuces come in many textures and colors, making

• Sculptural veggies: Dinosaur kale, with its distinctive pebbly leaf texture, is an attractive addition to edible landscapes, suggests Julie Weisenhorn, state director of the

University of Minnesota Extension’s Master Gardener program. • Edible flowers: Consider signet marigolds, which have an attractive mounded form, as well as pansies and nasturtiums. • Perfect pair: Plant thyme with sweet alyssum, Tepe suggests. • Think ahead: Edibles with large heads, such as broccoli and

cauliflower, can be tricky because harvesting them leaves a big hole in the landscape. Consider planting them among an ornamental plant that spreads, such as trailing petunias, Tepe says. • Edible edging: Many edible plants make attractive borders, including strawberries, lavender and oregano.
