Home Living : April 13th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 7 ................................................ HOMELIVING Cosy new flame » ADVERTISING FEATURE It's the season to snuggle up on the couch and spend some time at home. And what better way to melt away the autumn chills than with a new flame. Rinnai's new Symmetry Gas Log Flame Fire allows you to relax in comfort while appreciating the warmth and ambience created by a flame fire without the cost and hassle of operating a traditional open fire. With impressive heat output and a 4.2-star energy rating, Rinnai's Symmetry Gas Log Flame Fire is safe, clean and efficient. Burning one of the cleanest fuels available -- natural gas -- combined with high-energy efficiency, the Symmetry is a truly clean, green and cost-effective way to heat your home while still having the ambience of an open fire. Perfect for new homes and renovations, the Symmetry sets a new standard in flame-fire design, features and technology. The Symmetry has a wide landscape unit that installs virtually flush against the wall, and has a unique realistic eucalyptus log set which gives an attractive uneven flame pattern. The unit can comfortably heat large, open-plan spaces,. Details: 1300 555 545, rinnai.com.au The time is ripe for greens In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Lettuce and other salad greens are usually easier to grow during the cooler months. When it's warm they tend to rush to flower and set seed, which spoils their flavour, but autumn and early winter are ideal growing seasons for most leafy vegies. Lettuce, especially the smaller-growing varieties such as mignonette or coral, don't need much root depth so they'll grow happily in a pot outside the kitchen door. This makes them easy to look after, and even easier to pick fresh when they're needed. Instead of using a pot, you can beg or borrow a couple of those styrofoam broccoli boxes that come with their own built-in insulation. Just check to make sure they have sufficient drainage holes. Poke extra holes in the base if necessary. Use a good potting mix and mix in some organic fertiliser (such as Dynamic Lifter) before planting. Don't let the lettuce dry out as this checks their growth. And water every couple of weeks with a liquid food. As soon as they're large enough, begin plucking and using the outer leaves. Other salad greens that can go now are rocket, endive and spring onions. Parsley, while not always classed as a salad component, grows well in autumn and brings a piquant flavour to many dishes, hot or cold. Other vegies also enjoy growing when it's cool. Spinach, broad beans, kale, peas, turnips and parsnips can all be planted in beds or containers at this time of year.
