M., Amherst, Mass., writes: "Will you have the kindness to inform me'if you have ever practiced fall planting of the European Larch. We have a lot of seedlings that we are thinking of transplanting for forest growth and 'fall planting would save us much expense.'"
[We should not recommend fall-planting young Larches, because the frost would probably draw out such small things; but young Larches ought to be drawn out in the fall, and bedded in thickly where they can be got at early in the spring. This keeps back their early growth somewhat, and enables one to have time to plant large quantities before the leaves push. - Ed. G. M].
