Mr. Mason, has stated that it is his intention to devote a considerable portion of Lia time to the Btudy of colonial questions and tho furtherance of colonial interests -among which we may be sure he will not reckon those of Western Australia either last or least.

The Orchard. SUMMER PRUNING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 30 January 1886

BY HORTUS. SUMMER PRUNING. IE Summer pruning has been ««ll at- tended to while the month's actual growth was taking place, young and old frnittrees should have well balanced heads of wood. Most growers give too little attention to this particular mode of pruning, bat pre- fer to trim the trees to their liking, when Ígrowth has stopped and the foliage fal en. i With a little reflection one can easdj see, that this latter coarse is the cause of unnecessary waste of vitality and mater- ial, which could have been turned to bet- ter account in the tree. If the young shoots are rubbed off where not wanted, the energies which would have been em- ployed in forming and maturing them, will be available to additionally nourish «nd strengthen those other shoots that are wanted to form the permanent crown, and. to improve the general con- stitution of the tree. On the other hand, if ali growth is allowed to advance un- checked, there will be no really strong and healthy wood, which would be able...
