hardier ones should bo selected.
Do not make the mistake of se-
lectinc some much talked of
varieties that may require entire
ly different climatic conditions
that exist here, for if you do
you dan at best expect but in
ferior fruit while in all proba-.
bility your trees will very seldom
set fruit at all. This pertains
also to the bush and small fruits.
' With our altitude and cold win
ters ft is advisable to set the
trees in the spring, fall set trees
are apt to be winter killed. In
settincr the trees, cutback the
longer roots and others which
have been broken off, with a
sharp knife. Make the holes
large enough to admit all the
roots without their ends being
bent upward. Set the trees sev
eral inches deeper than they were
when in the nursery row. If you
have a prevailing wind, set -the
trees leaning slightly in that di
rection. Cutoff the trees about
two feet above the ground. Al
ways where possible secure one
year old trees as iney can oe
made to the desired form better
than older trees.
The selection of varieties is of
much importance and often de
termines whether your planting
will be a failure or success. Con
ditions as they exist over the
greater part of this country,
call for hardy, northern grown,
rather early varieties of apples.
The Russian group fills these
requirements quite well and in
elude such varieties as the
Astracan, Yellow Transparent,
Gravenstein. Other hardy vari
eties are Wealthy, Mcintosh
Red, Pewaukee, and possibly
Kome Beauty. This gives suc
cession of fruit from the earlier
till winter. The Crabs do well
also. The Bartlett and Flemish
Beauty have proven desirable
varieties of pears. Of the peach
There is probably nothing that es, the early variety as Crawford
