Julien Apple.



Coming in about with the preceding or a little later, the Julienne assists in filling a gap where good market .as well as eating pears are scarce. The tree is a fine grower and comes earlier into full bearing; the fruit is medium size, of a beautiful light yellow and first-rate in quality. Bears picking early, and keeps and ripens up well. Best as a dwarf.

July, 1873. Floral Notes

During the meetings of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, last year, some very excellent and interesting displays of new flowers were contributed from time to time, of which we make the following note:

Narcissus Bulbocodium, exhibited by E. S. Rand, jr., more familiarly known as the Hoop Petticoat Narcissus. This is one of the neatest and most elegant of the genius, with rush-like foliage. There were two bulbs in a pint pot; they had six flowers, with a numerous quantity of buds. The plant shown was raised in a window, it is of the easiest culture, and is a great acquisition to our window plants.

June, 1873. Horticultural Notes


A correspondent of an exchange, writing of small fruits from the batiks of the Hudson River, says: - In view of the large quantities of currants under way, the conclusion is forced upon me that it will not pay to plant any common sort; none but the best, and they given the' best culture to bring them to the highest state of perfection. The most successful cultivator here is William Knifflin. He has picked 5 1/2 tons from 1 1/4 acres - 2 2/3 tons of Cherry, and 2 1/2 tons of Red Dutch - the former bringing from 12 to 20 cents a pound, and the latter considerably below. He paid out for picking, over $100.
