A WORD ABOUT PRUNING. Suggestion! for Work Which Should Be Don Next Month. II Is a well-known old saying that the time to prune Is when the u la sharp. Practically moKt of our fruit tice riiuliig 18 done in curly apring, Plum Tree Before Spring Pruning. March tichiK t accepted nimith. There In n manifest tendency among the most advanced fruit men to do more summer prulnltig nml less spring pruning. It ! ulsn (piitc plain that thon' who arc not real experts In or chard matters an- apt to overdo Hie uprlng work with the pruning kiw. If pruning l carefully and conservatlvo )y done every March from thu time the trees are planted out. it may lie considered a safe operation. The ex ecutive pruning of neglected tree at this time of year, on the other hand. If apt to he more of a damage than a lienetit, says the Country (ientlcman t'niler present circumstances, we have to recognize the fact that March Same Tree Pruned. 8howlng Method of Heading Back. will he the main month for pruning on farms anil In small orchards. In face of this fact. It Is well to urgo the advice ty be caieful with the prim lug tools, especially with the saw and the ax, and n.il to go too fast. EFFECT OF MULCH. It Does Not Retard Blooming of Straw berry Plants. No. This epiestion has been settled for L'n years So long as the top of a plant Is exposed to sunshine and nlr, so long will nny mulch he Impotent to retard Its developing and blooming If n plant like n strawberry plant ho kept entirely coveted with the mulch, the development will he retarded, tint In that case the plant Is likely to he destroyed by the mildews that will de velop. It used to be believed that placing straw around a tree or around a plant would keep Its roots cold and thus delay blooming. This was desired to carry the tree or plant beyond the time of killing frosts. Hut it was not dlirtrult to prove that the state of the roots had nothing to do with the time of leaving out of the tree or of lis budding. In one of the demonstrn tlons to prove this, a grnpe vine with Its roots In the frozen (iround, which was also covered with snow, was car rlcd Into a grenhouhe and exposed to the light, heat and sunshine. The leaves came out as usual, though the roots could not supply moisture. Of course the exhaustion of the moisture In the vine resulted In Its destruction A tree or n plant enn be kept hack from blooming only by covering It and thus protecting It from the Influences that cause It to bring forth leaves and blossoms. The first activities of a tree or plant come from energy stored up In the form of starch from the fnnd taken the previous year. Remember This. Remember, when making up your order for trees for sirlng planting, that It Is best not to plant big block all of one variety. Mingle the sorts, bo that their blossoms may help .o fertilize one another. Look to Grapevine Trellis Posts. See to graivevlne trellis posts when a thaw comes tho latter part of this month. Tighten and fasten wires. Tie tip vines where needed. Have the trelllg taut, straight and strong. I Obttacl, to Society Fid.
