Gladioli Culture
Choose a sunny location (a different spot each year)
with well-drained, rich soil. Plant about 15 cm (6”)
deep, 10 cm (4”) apart in rows 30 cm (12”) apart.
Dusting the corms with Bulb Dust prevents insect
and disease damage. Mound up the rows and water
well, occasionally but thoroughly. Frequent but light
watering will cause the roots to come to the surface
where they can be scorched by the sun. Fertilize
with Bonemeal or a balanced-formula, general
purpose brand. When cutting the flowers, allow
some leaves to remain on the plant to mature the
corms. When the leaves turn brown in the fall, dig
up the plants, cut off the stalks, and store the corms
inside in a warm spot for 10 to 14 days to dry them
quickly. When the old bulb can be broken off with a
snap, it is time to store the new ones in a cool spot
(5°C is best) for the winter. Dusting with Bulb Dust
is recommended.
Gladioli Collection
The corms (bulbs) are not separately marked, but
they are all different except in larger quantities or
late in the season. No. 1 or Jumbo size.

Roses
rose Culture
Choose a sunny location with free air circulation
and rich well-drained soil. Soak the bushes in water
24 to 72 hours before planting. Dig a wide hole with
a centre mound to fan out the roots. The graft (on
tea roses) should be about 5 cm (2”) below the soil
surface. Fill the hole with water and add a soil and
peat moss mixture gradually. A transplant fertilizer
is recommended at this time. Water very well.
Our Tea Roses can be wintered on the Prairies
with a little protection (northern climates will
require special attention). Cut your bushes down
to about 30 cm (12”), then mound them up with
soil or mulch and cover with vented plastic, jute, or
a cardboard box. Snow cover is also an excellent
insulator. Do not uncover too early in the spring,
and water very well. Shrub roses usually need no
covering or protection unless they are in an area
that does not get much snow cover.
Plant in an area getting adequate winter snow
cover. In the fall, cut down to 30 cm (12”) and cover
with soil, straw, peat, etc. Do not uncover too soon
in the spring.
Hardy shrub roses
Hybrid Tea Roses
Very hardy Canadian-grown shrubs, taller than
Tea types, and with abundant but smaller blooms.
Usually no extra winter protection is needed
beyond snow cover. More disease and mildew
resistant.

perishable stock
Our perennial roots, bulbs, shrubs and fruits are
kept cool and dormant until time of shipment.
Once the stock has started to grow, climatic and
soil conditions, which are of course beyond our
control, become the most important variables in
the success of the plant. Therefore, if you have a
problem with our perennial roots, bulbs, shrubs,
or fruits, or if your parcel is received in damaged
condition, you must let us know right away. We
will replace with the same or similar stock, or
issue a credit note for the amount paid, at our
option. The deadline to report any perishable
stock that fails to grow is 40 days from the date
of shipment. We regret that we cannot accept
any claims after 40 days.
We do our best to buy a sufficient stock of
roots and bulbs to cover our orders. However
with perishable items like these, crop shortages
sometimes develop after our catalogue goes to
press. Therefore, unless otherwise instructed, we
will substitute where necessary to an equal or
higher value with a color or variety as close as we
can to the one you ordered.
Oriental Lily - Tom Pouce
We buy large top quality lily bulbs as we feel they
are your best investment towards years of reliable
service. Not all lilies are perfectly winter hardy in our
climate. Therefore they should be planted in a spot
getting lots of snow cover during the winter. Or plant
near the foundation of a house, or cover with mulch
to give the bulbs extra winter protection. Lilies may
also be lifted in the fall and stored indoors like Dahlia
tubers.
Set the bulbs 15 to 20 cm (6 to 8”) deep, in welldrained soil. Use peat moss when planting. Keep the
base of the plant mulched to keep the roots cool.

geranium
This garden favourite is best suited for sunny borders,
window boxes, planters, or beds. Will tolerate partial
shade. Because our seed is scarified for faster
germination (i.e. the seed hull removed) more care
must be taken in starting geraniums. Allow 10 to
12 weeks before setting out (approximately 100
to 150 days seed to bloom). Use a sterile medium
like vermiculite or perlite for germinating. Keep the
temperature constant at around 24˙C (75˙F) and
cover the tray with plastic to hold in the moisture.
Transplant to Jiffy Pots using a light soil mixture and
reduce the temperature for sturdier stockier plants.

Tomato - Capaya
Tomatoes
Start seeds indoors in a bright spot, or under lights
around April 1st. Transfer the seedlings to a cooler
area to allow them to become stocky and hardy,
and to withstand transplant shock. After frost, set
out 45 to 60 cm (18 to 24”) apart in rows 90 cm
(36”) apart. For stronger roots and more droughtresistant plants, transplant the seedlings. Deeply
or on an angle. Use hotkaps to guard against
frosts. Water well and evenly and fertilize regularly.
“Determinate” varieties are generally earlier, and
more compact, and have limited vine growth; and
their fruit ripens more evenly over a shorter period.
“Indeterminate” types usually require staking with
1 or 2 side shoots. Fruit is also borne continuously
over a longer period.

Premier Lawn Grass
We feature lawn seed specially suited to Prairie weather and soil. Only top quality grass seed is used in
Lindenberg’s Premier brand lawn grass. You can buy cheaper seed, but it could take longer to fill in, or
winter kill more easily.
NEW LAWNS: The soil should be well cultivated, finely pulverized and levelled. Rolling it will show up those
hollows that need to be filled. Plant a small area at a time and divide your seed so that the recommended
quantity is applied to that area. Lightly rake or reroll. Keep the surface moist but not soaked, with several
light, fine-spray waterings, rather than a few heavy applications, until the seed has germinated and taken
root (usually 14-21 days depending on the weather). Then, watering should become heavier but at longer
intervals. It is best to sow grass when weather conditions are moist and moderately cool (i.e. early spring, or
very early fall). However, grass can be sown anytime if it has the moisture it needs. Lawns are heavy feeders
and should therefore be fertilized ­regularly after the first year.
TO RENEW OLD LAWNS: Loosen up the bald spots with a rake, apply a top dressing of soil, and sow the
seed at 500 g to 45 square meters (450 square feet). Then follow the same procedure as new lawns.
Note: Rates quoted are approximate only. They can be varied considerably according to personal
preference.
H Premier 909 Fine Turf
Canada No. 1 Lawn Grass Mixture
Approximate Blend:
Kentucky Blue Grass..................................... 40%
Creeping Red Fescue.................................... 45%
Annual Rye.................................................... 15%
This is our most popular mixture. It has been a
proven performer on the Prairies for many years.
Premier “909” stands up to traffic and winter
conditions better than many other mixtures, yet
with a little moisture and care it looks great! The
Kentucky Blue grass provides the fine-bladed
grass whereas the Creeping Red Fescue is a
hardier strain that blends well with the Kentucky
Blue. Because the Kentucky Blue Grass accounts
for relatively less than the other varieties in the
mixture, 909 makes a hardier lawn requiring a
minimum of care. The Annual Rye provides a
cover crop for the first year to allow the other 2
varieties to become well established. Sow 500 g
to 30 square meters (275 square feet). A 2 kg bag
covers 120 square meters (1100 square feet).
9096 Mixture 909 200 g pkg. $2.99

H Premier 910 farm lawn
Canada No. 1 Lawn Grass Mixture
Approximate Blend:
Kentucky Blue Grass.......................................... 30%
Creeping Red Fescue......................................... 50%
Crested Wheat Grass......................................... 20%
This is a blend of hardier grasses that will withstand
moderate drought, heavier traffic or poorer soil.
However, adequate water and fertilizer will help this
mixture make a good lawn. Sow 500 g to 30 square
meters (275 square feet). A 2 kg bag covers 120
square meters (1100 square feet).

H Premier 915 Shade Grass
Canada No. 1 Lawn Grass Mixture
Approximate Blend:
Chewing’s Fescue.............................................. 35%
Creeping Red Fescue......................................... 35%
Kentucky Blue Grass.......................................... 15%
Annual Rye......................................................... 15%
A special blend that does well in shade or semishade. The Chewing’s Fescue is suited to shade
whereas the Creeping Red Fescue and Kentucky
Blue Grass provide fine-bladed grass to make a
thick turf. As a result, 915 blends well with other
grasses in color. It is moderately hardy, but requires
adequate moisture and fertilizing (Golden Vigoro).
Sow 500 g to 22 square meters (220 square feet).
9155 Grass mix 915 500 g pkg. $5.79
9152 Grass mix 915 2 kg pkg. $20.99
H Premier 901 Extra Fine Lawn
Canada No. 1 Lawn Grass Mixture
Approximate Blend:
Kentucky Blue Grass.......................................... 64%
Creeping Red Fescue......................................... 25%
Red Top.............................................................. 10%
White Clover......................................................... 1%
Recommended for those who want the very best
lawn. The Kentucky Blue provides a thick turf of finebladed grass, whereas the Creeping Red Fescue is
a hardier strain that blends well with Kentucky Blue
Grass. White Clover is low-growing and enriches the
soil over time. Extra care is needed for this mixture
in terms of the water and fertilizer that are required.
Sow 500 g to 30 square meters (275 square feet) A

feet).
