Budding Young Pccdllnca.
The custom prevalent two generations
ago of grafting young fruit trees has
given way to that lof bpdcliug. There
are many reason why small eedllngs
should be budded ; first, because of the
rapidity with which budding can be ac
complished, an experienced budder
often setting one hundred in an hour ;
second, the more convenient season at
which it is done ; third, the fact that
the operation can be performed without
injuring the stock in case of failure,
which is always more or less liable in
stocks headed down for grafting;
fourth, the opportunity which it affords,
when performed in good season, of re
peating the trial on the same stock. To
these several advantages may be added
budding is preferred for the stone
fruits that require extra skill in graft
ing, but which are budded with ease.
Budding is done during the growing
season. June budding, especially on
the peach and nectarine, is practiced in
the South, but is not advised in the
more Northern States. The ordinary
budding season extends at the North
from about the middle c' July until the
middle of September, r .J the earl in ess
or lateness at which a species is budded
depends, otucr things being equal, on
the condition ol its growth. The time
for budding therefore depends also upon
the weather. In a warm, dry season
the young wood matures earlier , and
stocks cease to grow sooner and are in
consequence ready for budding earlier
than in a cool, moist season that pro

or placingfin moist sawdust.
In about ten days or a fortnight after
budding its success or failure will be
apparent. If it has succeeded and the
stoi'kis swollen, loosen or remtvj the
bat dage. If 'it has failed and the bark
continues to separate readily from the
wood, a second trial can be mode. In
some oases, notably with cheny stocks,
it is necessary to loosen the bondage
and retie it, as rapid growth causes the
string to cut the bark before the bud is
fit to be untied. This, however, docs
not usually occur. As a rule the string
is removed in from two weeks to a
month aftor budding. All bandages
should be removed finally and not re
main on during the winter.
Stocks budded one season are headed
down to within a few inches of the bud
the noxt season, about the timo the
leaves begin to appear, and all buds
starling into growth on the stock are
rubbed off. Later on, the portion of
the stock left above the bud at the
heading down in the spring should be
removed with a cIobo and smooth slop
ing cut at the highest point of union
between the bud and stock. New York
