Cultivation of the Grape.
The following on this subject is taken"
from the New York Tribune's
of the proceedings of the American In
stitute Farmer's Club :
Mr. Mead gave a lengthy discourse
upon the cultivation of tho vine, illus
trated by drawings upon the blackboard,
which, although interesting to all pres
ent, is not reportable. Besides, the
whole of the information given may be
obtained by any one who will send six
cents for postage on Dr. Grant's cata
logues. Direct to " Iona, near Peeks
kill, New York."
In relation to planting and success in
the culture of the vine, Mr. Mead said
that if a good vine is properly set in a
well-prepared soil there is no mystery
about growing grapes in perfection al
most immediately. A layer vine will
produce fruit the first season, if requir
ed, in small quantities ; but he prefers
to plant one-year old vines grown in
pots, and wait the proper time for fruit,
which they will produce continually, as
long as they are regularly pruned. lie
lays great stress upon having the soil
most thoroughly pulverized and enrich
ed the year before the vines are planted,
for if a vine is set in poor soil, it is
constantly struggling for life enough to
send out roots in search of food in some
spot beyond its immediate locality. It
is, therefore, important to have its food
near home, and to create as many feed
ing roots as possible at the immediate
base of the stalk. S'ome vine3, when
sent out from the nurseryman, have
long straggling roots, with a few fibres
at the extremities. Such plants should
always be avoided, no matter how long
the main roots and upright cane, as
they will not make a healthy growth.
The smallest single-eye plant, with a
.large mass of fine roots, is far prefera
ble. In setting such a plant, shake out
and straighten the roots, and place the
hand under the bottom so as to set
them down carefully upon the prepared
spot, holding the hand in the same posi
tion till an assistant sifts in some fine
composted soil, which you will work in
with the other hand so as to have every
root in its proper position, and careful
ly covered. Fill in this fine soil four
inches deep, and above that any good,
rih, fine surface soil will answer. In
light soil the bottom of the hole, when
ready to set the vine, should be six in
ches below the general surface. In
heavy soils, four inches. In preparing
tho bottom of the hole, make it convex,
as that form fits the shape of the roots
of a vine grown in a pot. A layer vine
requires a different shaped hole. The
greatest care must be used that no va
cancy be left among the roots, and that
no putrescent manure comes in contact
with them. Manure may be put on the
surface after the vines are well estab
lished, but if the soil is all right very
-little will be needed. It will be observ
ed that the roots of a well-grown plant,
started in a pot, all spread out equally
from the stalk, while those from a lay
er tend all one way, requiring a differ
ent shaped hole, and sometimes a good
deal of skill and judgment is required
to root prune a layer, so as to have a
full supply of fibrous roots near the
.stalk. Fibrous roots at the extremity
of a long, branching root are of no val
ue and must be cut back. If, as is
sometimes the case, all the fibrous roots
.are at the extremity of a long strag
gling root, the plant is nearly worthless.
It is sometimes necessary to carry a
layer from a growing vine, to be trained
upright several feet from the main root.
I would, said Mr. Mead, take at least
three years to layer a vine four feet,
-putting it down about eighteen inches
tho first year, where it would establish
a new stock of roots. The second year
put it under the soil eighteen inches
more, and new roots would again form.
The next year lay it down to its place,
and train it for its permanent upright.
A long vine would not grow roots the
whole distance, if put down at once.
In answer to the question, he said he
would never let a one-year old vine bear
iruit. it must be cut. away to allow the
roots to get strength.
Mr. Fuller remarked that people have
much yet to learn about the principles
of vino culture. For instance, a man
said to me yesterday, I do not want my
vine cut away I want it to extend so
a&to bear a thousand bunches. Is this
policy? It maybe done, but such a
vine is very difficult to manage because
there is no fixed principle for its treat
ment as there is of one that only occu
pies a spare four feet each way from
tho root, trained fiat upon trillis bars
only four feet high, and requiring no
more room at a hundred years of age
than it did at five years. It should al
ways' be borne in mind by every owner
4Tn vine that the rush of sap is to the
highest branches, and if the top of the
vine is a hundred feet high, there is
where the fruit will be. It is far more
profitable to grow a thousand bunches
upon many roots than to try to force
one to produce them.
