FRUIT FLOWRS CULTURAL NOTES ON STRAWBERRIES. Views Expressed by a Grower Who Favors Spring Planting. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
CULTURAL NOTES ON STRAWBERRIES. Views Expressed by a Grower Who Favors Spring Planting. Mr. Gecrge T. Powell, in an address on strawberry culture before a New York farmers' institute, made these re marks: In fertilizing the strawberry remem ber that it yields from near the surface and as a consequence is easily winter killed. To make success sure it is there fore best to underdrain a piece of land to carry off the surplus moisture in fall and spring. The soil should be moist, but not wet. Underdrains are fully as valuable in dry as in wet weather, as they prevent in a measure the evapora tion of moisture from the soil. A soil that will produce a good crop of corn will produce a good crop of strawber ries. Potash is the best fertilizer. for the strawberry. The vine and foliage re quire nitrogen to perfect them; the fruit, potash and plosphoric acid. The former vill? be inore cheaply obtained from good barnyard manure, the latter from ashes and ground bone. I plant in the spring, in r...

The Plum Curculio. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
The PlIum Curculio. Scientists and fruitgrowers are not in accord as to which is the better plan, jarring the trees or spraying, for cur culio. Some believe that the diluted bordeaux mixture, with parisgreen add ed, can be applied to plum trees as well as to pears, apples, etc., without fear of hurting the foliage, and that it will kill many of the beetles. Professor Bailey numbers arsenites with other means of combating the curculio; apply as soon as thle clyx falls and repeat two or three times at intervals of about 10 days. Pres ident Barry of the Western New York Horticultural society has not fourlI spraying a pronounced success, and late ly expressed a preference for the jarring method.

GROWING ORANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
GROWING ORANGES. 0 A writer in "The Gardener" ad vises ladies who admire foliage and have an interest in growing their own plants, that they cannot do better than rear an orange plant from a pip. Such plants are comparatively easy to rear, and although the blossoms will not be so fine as that of a plant grown in heat, yet the foliage is good, and can easily be kept clean. A fine, large orange should he chosen, having good seeds. Sow five or six pips in a six-inch pot, with good drainage, filling the pot with leaf-mould and good sandy loam. Set the pot in a warm place, with a piece of-glass over. The seedlings will soon appear, and when they have made a tiew leaf they may be potted singly into three-inch pots. Water suftcient to keep the soil moist is enough. A wet and sodden soil will kill the plants. If a frame or case can hbe used, so much the better, the chief aim being to keep the plant clean and growing. In winter the orange must he kept free from frost and rather dry at the ro...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Healesville and Yarra Glen Guardian — 16 November 1900
The man who cheats his printe; Out of a single cent, Will never reach the heavenly land Where old E.lijth went. He'll never gain admittance, But be by deimons driven, And made to loaf his time about Outside the gates of $eaven. He'll never meet a pleasant face, Or see one festive grin; His only chance of happiness, Will be almnighty thin.
