Besides rooting cuttings and sowing seeds, there are other ways to increase ground-cover plants, says a University of Georgia expert. First, it helps to know how your ground cover spreads, says Bob Westerfield, an Extension Service horticulturist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Ground-cover plants spread by stolons (aboveground runners) or rhizomes (underground stems), Westerfield says.Plants With Stolons To propagate plants from stolons, such as flowering strawberry or ajuga, peg runners into contact with the soil or composted leaf mulch. Keep the area moist, and the stems should root within one to two months. Separate new little plants from the parent in late summer or early fall.Plants With Rhizomes Plants with rhizomes, such as lily of the valley, are easy to propagate, too. In early spring or early fall, use a spade to slice through the lateral stems that connect a parent plant with a newly developing plantlet. Make sure each plant has at least one bud, Westerfield says. Replant them at the same depth. For more information on ground covers, see the UGA Extension Service publication on the Web at www.ces.uga.edu/pubcd/L121.htm.

EDMONTON – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she will attend a meeting about the Trans Mountain pipeline in good faith and with an open mind, but the bottom line is the expansion project must get built without delay.Notley also says she will bring in legislation next week that would allow her to curtail oil shipments to British Columbia – regardless of the outcome of her Sunday meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and B.C. Premier John Horgan.Such action is expected to cause gas prices and other costs to spike in B.C.Trudeau has called the meeting for Ottawa amid increasing public pressure to resolve the impasse over Kinder Morgan’s pipeline from Edmonton to the port at Burnaby, B.C.The $7.4-billion expansion would triple the amount of oil headed to the coast, which Notley says is critical to ease transportation bottlenecks that are causing Canadian heavy oil to sell at a deep discount.The project already has federal approval, but Kinder Morgan says delay tactics and court challenges by B.C. have put the financial viability of it in jeopardy.

Starting Wednesday, its New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol will be CPRI.Gianni Versace founded Versace in 1978. The family-run business was thrown into chaos with Versace’s murder 21 years ago. His sister, Donatella Versace, will continue with the company, holding the position of creative director.Michael Kors, who founded the company under his name, also remains as creative director of that wing of the company.The Associated Press
New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday claimed that the Congress has managed to dismantle the idea of Narendra Modi in the past five years. He also mocked the prime minister for holding his first press conference just days before polling ends. BJP chief Amit Shah and Modi held a press conference at the party headquarters at the same time when Gandhi addressed the media at the Congress head office. “Why did the prime minister not accept my challenge for a debate on the Rafale issue,” asked Gandhi. Answering a question, he asserted that the philosophy of Shah and Modi cannot be the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi also said that the Election Commission’s role in these polls has been “biased” and it has issued orders keeping in mind Modi’s schedule.
