Our readers will remember that long before the grafted gooseberries made such a sensation at the Centennial, the matter had been brought before them and the whole secret explained in detail by Mr. Chas. Brulot, at page 1% of our magazine for 1874. Recently a correspondent inquired what had become of the idea, and we replied. We may now add that the writer of that article, who is also one of the most intelligent propagators, as well as practitioner of general gardening in the country, is now at Lime Rock, Connecticut, and any one who really wants to work up the grafted currant and gooseberry business can have a chance to engage with him.
