H. C. S., Green Tree. Pa., says: - "Gardeners, be so kind as to inform me through the columns of the Gardener's Monthly, whether peach trees, budded in June, are budded from wood of the previous year's growth, or of the present year's growth; and if the former, is there any advantage in budding the peach in June? For I see peach trees budded in June recommended by several nurserymen in their catalogues."

[By June budding, if the proper time and conditions are secured, a season is saved in getting a tree. The plants are not as large as those which take two seasons - not half as large, - but we have seen very good trees so raised, quite good enough for extensive planting, and we know no reason against the practice. - Ed. G. M.]
