We have simply recommended what we practise, and would like to know why a young gardener should be called upon to labour extra time on worse terms than any mechanic. We have great sympathy with young gardeners, and know their hardships from experience, and want to see them have at least fair-play.

If you want dwarf trees and quick returns, plant Apples on the Paradise stock and Pears on the Quince. But if you wish for large trees and great crops ultimately, plant them on the Crab and Pear stock respectively, and lift or root-prune them biennially till they begin to bear freely. We never recommend nurserymen. Consult our advertising sheets.
