There is no reason why every farmer, if he so desires, may not propagate all the fruits necessary for his own garden and orchard, writes W. L. Howard. Such work can be done at little or no expense and, besides, it is pleasant and interesting. The author acknowledges credit to all who, through their wide experience, have written of plant propagation, and especially toT homas Meehan and George W. Oliver, both pre-eminent in their fields of nursery and greenhouse propagation.
