The Florist and Pomol-ogist tells us of the great skill of Mr. Henderson, the gardener at Moresby Park, in England, in raising fruits. Among other things, he has ft wall twelve feet high, the northern fence of which is covered by gooseberries, all trained artistically, and fastened to the wall. The branches are all trained vertically, each four inches from the other. The increase in the number and quality of the fruits on this plan is represented to be enormous. Independently of this, it must be worth going miles to see.
