Since the work is done during the season of active growth, tbe bud sticks should be prepared so that the petiole or stem of each leaf is left attached to serve as a handle to aid in pushing the bud home when Inserting it beneath the bark ol the stock. This Is what is usually called a shield bud. It is cut so that a small portion of the woody tissue of tbe branch is demoved. A bud stick and method of cutting is shown in the accompanying figure by Professor Corbet The stock for budding should be at least at; thick as an ordinary lead pencil. With apples and pears a second season's growth will be necessary to develop this size; while with peach a single season will suffice. Hence peach stocks can be budded the. same season as the pits are planted. Consequently the peach Is left until...

PRESERVATION OF FLOWERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 13 November 1907

PRESERVATION OF FLOWERS. How to kepp cut flowers fresh for the longest possible period Is a question of interest to householders, and to ghow exhibitors. There are various systems, but tbe following probably give the best results:— 1. Immerse the stem of the specimen In a solution of thirty-two parts -by weight) of alum, four of nitre, and 186 of water for two or three days until the liquid is thoroughly absorbed. Then press in the ordinary way, except that dry sand should be sifted over the speci men and tbe packet should be subjected to the action of gentle heat for twenty four hours. 2. Make a varnish composed of twenty parts of powdered copal and COO parts of ether. Powdered glass or sand may be used to make tbe copal dissolve more readily. Into this solution the plants should be carefully dipped. They should then be allowed to dry for ten minutes, and the same process may be repeated four -or five times in succession, ? /3.JPlants.may; also, be plunged. In a' polling solution o...
