THE ORCHARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912
THE ORCHARD. By 'Elschar.' [Written Exclusively for 'The MaiL') Most deciduous trees may be now pruned. Many amateurs have1 a very hazy idea what the real uses of pruning are. They may be summarised thus: — 1. To encourage strong growth. J. xo snape ine tree so that the branches may be so placed as to be strong enough to carry a good crop of fruit. 3. To encourage the fruit spurs to grow on the main and lateral branches, and not out at the ends of the limbs, where they are likely to be' knocked off by the swaying of the Drab during a strong wind. i. To regulate the crop of fruit year by year, aa most trees, if left to themselves, are liable to bear a heavy crop one year and the next a very small one, and to do this alternately year after year. The first thing to be learnt is to be able to distinguish the leaf buds on a tree from the fruit or flower bods, and this can only be done by dose observation for oneself. The flower buds are much larger and rounder than the leaf bods. It is r...
PRACTICAL PARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912
PRACTICAL PARS. The farmer must be able not only to raise his products, but to sell them. Successful agriculture is a matter of per sonality more than of circumstances. _ The experience of one farmer is often invaluable to his neighbours. The unavailable plant food in a soil constitutes its reserve store of fertility. The best results from chemical ferti lisers are obtained from soils that are in good physical condition. 'Learn to do by doing' is 'a good motto for the agriculturist. The man who cannot or will not de velop himself as his surroundings deve lop must go to the wall. The soaking of seed potatoes from one and a half to two hours in one pint of formaldehyde diluted by 25 gallons of water iviU kill the 'scab germ.-F

VEGETABLES ALL THE YEAR ROUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 15 June 1912
VEGETABLES ALL THE YEAR ROUND. By 'Elschar.' fWritten Exclusively for 'The MaiL') Did yon ever remark the fact that toma toes have their finest flavour when they are 1/ or 1/6 a &.? Of course, this may bp merely bmaginatioB, bat there is no jmagnnxtan m toe statement titat most amateurs eaa only get their tomatoes to ripen when they are a penny or even less in the shops. One of tbe first things to do to secure early fruit of this popular vegetable is to raise early plants, and to do this you mnst be prepared to go to some little trouble. Daring this time of tbe year tbe seed germinates bat slowly, and the seedlings, if raised in an ordi nary seedbox, make but little headway. To be euccesEFid you need a hotbed or a pfopogator. 'What is a propagator, sir?' she said. 'A propagator, my child, is a store house, on a very small plan.
