Thi Is done by alternately placing a layer of moist sand and a layer of nuts in u box, being careful that the nuts do not touch one auother. The box can be kept lu the cellar or buried in the ground, as preferred. The following spring the nuts should be planted in the nursery row or where the trees are to stand.
