Fruit trees and fruit plants need a liberal supply of Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers The trees absorb plant foods-that is, nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash-from the soil just the same As any other crop. Experi ence has shown this over and over again. This truth has become so well recognized that " return to the land what the tree removes if you would expect the best results " has become an axiom with the best growers. Apple, pear, peach, orange and other fruit trees soon respond to careful fertilization. But be sure to use the best fertilizers. U I made a test with other companies' fertilizers," says Mr. H. O. Lowry, of Manatee County, Fla., '- and yours proved to be the best. The yield where I used Virginia-Carolina Fertilizer, was just twice as much as where the other two companies' fertilizer was used." Hundreds of users say Virginia-Carolina Fertilizers age cheapest because of their good qualities-give better satisfaction and quicker results. Many facts of great interest and value to fruit growers are pub lished in the new 1909 Farmers' Year Book, a copy of which will be sent free on application to any of our sales offices.
