HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. "Mistakes I have made and how I have remedied them" was the subject of an address given- by iMr H. Alston, of Diamond Creek, at the monthly meeting of the Ivanhoe Horticultnural Society on Monday evening, before 60 members. After detailing the ups and downs of gardening, Mr Alston said that for a man to be a success he must be his own experimenter. Two of the greatest faults with gardeners was excessive manuring and watering. He preferred a good soaker once a week to a sprinkler every night, and overhead watering is not good.: The use of manures depends on the soil, and lime should not be used at the same time as other manures. Plain sand is good o plant tseeds in, but people should be careful to get what grows best in their own district. Grow good stuff, get your own seeds, and you will have results every time. Special attention should be paid to pruning, as more trees are spoilt through ignorance than people dream of. He had spent £59 a year on spraying mate...
