LILIES
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 well-drained soil.
Use peat moss when planting. Keep the base of the
plant mulched to keep the roots cool.

Probably the most popular annual bedding plant.

to give your garden lots of colour from June until frost.
Allow 6 to 10 weeks before setting out. 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 or plastic tray-paks and grow
in a sunny spot or under lights, at cooler temperatures,
until planting time.

CORN
Since corn should be, for maximum flavour, eaten as
soon as it is picked, plant your seed in succession, or
select 3 or 4 different varieties with varying maturities.
Please note that Supersweet corns must be planted
separately to avoid cross-pollination. Sow about 2 cm
(3/4”) deep in rows 60 cm (24”) apart, later thinning
to around 15 cm (6”) apart in the row. Plant in blocks
or banks to ensure good pollination. Don’t plant
too early; the SOIL MUST BE WARM FOR GOOD
GERMINATION. A 75 g packet should be 16 to 25 m
(50 to 75’) of row.

on large, refined ears, about 20 cm (8”) long, with 18

SWISS CHARD (Spinach Beet)
This very nutritious vegetable produces thick, crumpled
leaves that are used like spinach. Unlike many other
leafy vegetables, Swiss Chard greens retain their
quality and flavour during hot weather. Sow seed 1 cm

45 to 60 cm (18 to 24”) apart. Later thin to about 15
cm (6”) apart in the row. One packet should do 6 m
(20’) of row; 25 g 30 m (90’). Harvest often; the more
leaves you pick, the more they grow again. Varieties
listed here are recommended for freezing.

TOMATOES
Tomato Bush Beefsteak
Tomato Viva Italia
Tomato Tiffany
Tomato Floralina
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 drought-resistant plants,
transplant the seedlings deeply or on an angle. Water
well and evenly and fertilize regularly. Kozy-Coats
will insulate against frost, and speed up growth.
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 especially 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.
PREMIER 909 FINE TURF
Canada No. 1 Lawn Grass Mixture
Approximate Blend:
Kentucky Blue Grass
40%
Creeping Red Fescue
45%
Annual Rye

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).
