RENMARK PLANTATIONS, MR. JAMES PRICE's [Newspaper Article] — Renmark Pioneer — 15 June 1895

fi£NMARK PLANTATIONS, j One of the moat compact of the Benmark plantations on Block Cf is i that of Mr. James Pricpt sit^ted at' the cqrn|r '<|f <|ho^lla| and* Cuca-i mungtf Sfreat, taking up l5 acres of! some of the most fertile soil in the1 settlement. It consists of dark red sandy loam of considerable depth, very easy to work and requiring less irri gation than most Benmark land, as it retains the moisture a long time. The house, a stone one, of the bungalow stamp, is built near the corner of the two thoroughfares of Block C, with a small orchard of as sorted trees in front and on both aides. The dwelling has a cosy ap pearance and though the ground is too flat for an extensive view, the large fruit trees of the plantation pro duce a picturesque landscape. Eight,, acrcs, of the block are planted with apricots, half of them put in during September 1892, and the remainder in August 1894. There ar« about 100 trees of the Blenheim variety, the rest being Moorpar...

PBUNING DEMONSTRATION. As notified by Advertisement in our last issue, Mr. W. G. Cuttle* on Saturday afternoon last gave practical demonstration* on pruning decidwus fruit trees and vines on the block of Messrs. Moffatt and Baxter, on Tar coola Street. About thirty settlers availed themselves of the invitation of the Renmark Fruit Packing Union, Ltd., which Company had wcured the Hervice* of Mr. Cnttle for the occasion. Our local expert commenced oper ations on 8'>i»e~i#o-yqtfr old apricot trees, showing how to balance the t ree by leaving branches at different points up nttd ilown the stem, and allowing none to remain too near to gether at the top. After treating several trees of this age, he went to a plantation of three year old apricot trees, and applied bis pruning shears first to (lie long top shoots, reducing them to within about nine inches of the point where they were last pruned, explaining at the same tinie ttiat this was the rale usually adopted. With | his saw he rem...
