[ts Propagation-How to Make and
A Florida correspondent of Farm,
Field and F. eside gives this method
[)f propagatin the mnmgo:
Take a cutting (terminal preferred)
of well ripened wood in a dormant
state from eight to twelve inches long.
The stock may he of equal size or hir
ger thai the cutting and should he hi a
growing condition. Alake an incision
on the side of the stock eliar the
ground from two to four inches long,
removing only a thin shaving of wood,
much as for in nrehing, but making at
the saeie time a tongue, as for side
grafting. Then make a like Incision,
with a corresniiln:- tongue, on the
side of the cutting, but it should he
made within about two Inche0s oif the
top of the cuttIng. Thenw ipress the codr
respondlig tongues fimly In placte and
wrap with strong cloth.
The exposed1 end oif the cutting, hav
ing becen firmly pressed0( into the so11,
should be thoroughly watered end the
soil drawnl around the whole so that
little if any of the wrapping Is expos
ed. It remains then only to water dnily
until the un-lion ia formed. A piartial
pr-otection from the wind and sun is
desirable but not abisolutely essential
in our cliimato. The top) of the stock
should lbe remiovedl as soon as the
union is formied and under certain cir'
eumstanaces pirobltliy at first.
