" TREATMENT OF ENGLISH ORCHARDS. - Aboording -to the statistics published (sals the Mark Lana Express) there were in England last year 244,831 acres classed as orchards. We are sorry to say we cannot say of "cultivated orchards, because the mistaken idea seems to have prevailed to a great cx thatl orchards and pastures 'can get along alright without attention or as sistance; that kind Natuire has en dowed them with the power of con tinuing to extract nourishment from a soil sucked dry by means of crop ping. The result of such a paradox is visible in the poverty stricken con dition. of many orchards and pastures.: It is pleasant to record >thlt a change for the better is gradually taking place. It is being recognised that when fruit trees of a good olass are grown, and sprayed and pruned, orch ards become a source of profit not to be despised. It is essential-that thb trees, if expected to produce abund ant crops of good fruit, should be suip plied with nourishment, to compenr. sa...
