Hints for the Month.
ORCHARD AND NURSERY. —The utility
<>' ln'i'!injr-iii trees in a cool and shady
place, wiil now be appreciated, as
planting can be continued long after
i ts in the nursery have started to
UTMVV. In many cases
Trees from the nursery will arrive
11 iw, after a long detention on the
w ay. When opened they tnay be
.-hriveled and apparently worthless ;
if picked close and damp, their buds
may have pushed out long white
shoots. If shriveled,bury for a week,
root and branch. If growth has ta
ken place, cut back for a dormant
bud ; dont be afraid to use the knife
freely —you will be glad next au
Grafting can still be done, except
with stone fruits, when vegetation is
active, use care.
Rtx)t-Grafls. —II not yet set out,
should not be delayed. Put in rows,
•1 feet apart,and 12 inches in the row,
pressing the soil firmly about them.
Planting in Orchard. —Many ask
about this, Cultivate fur the orchard.
If any crop will leave the land clean
er and richer than before, grow it.—
Root crops are best. Never grow
grain, and of all things, don't try so
greedy a weed as tobacco. The same
remark holds as to setting strawber
ries, and other small fruits, between
the rows of young trees. It may be
profitably done, it the trees are not
Nursery Trees must be looked to.
If suckers or useless shoots are rub
bed off, as soon as they push, much
future cutting will be avoided.
Mulching of young trees is to be
done before dry weat >er comes on,
straw, bog, salt hay, etc , may be
used. If no mulch is applied, keep
the ground mellow by frequent stir
Insects. —"I shall move upon your
works at once," should indicate the
character of the warfare. When a
"tent" is visible, however small the
nest, be sure that caterpillars are
there. Pull it down with the fingers,
rub it off with a brush, swab it out
with so t soap,—anything, but let it
get large enough to do as a corres
pondent suggests —fire blank catridg
es at it. The curculio begins its work
as soon as plums and cherries are
large enough to sting. Jar the trees,
catch the insects on a sheet,and burn
Seedlings of all kinds of trees are to
be kept weeded and thinned, whenev
er too crowded. Some of the hardiest
forest trees, as oaks, need shading in
their youth. This is especially true
of young evergreens. A lattic of lath

Cuttings of the grape, currant, and
any others not yet planted, should be
put in at once, and mulched with tan
bark or leaves.
Currants. —If the sickly appearance
of the plants shows that the borer
has entered them, cut away the affec
ted part, if it takes the whole bush,
and burn. Look out for the worm on
the leaves ; if it appears, dust with
the powder of white hellebore at once.
Mulching is of great benefit to this
Insects. —Besides those mentioned
under orchard, the annoying Rose
bug will often prove very destructive
to the blossoms of the grape. This
fellow seems to defy every applica
tion,aud the only way is to shake him
off early in the morning, and catch
on a cloth or in a pan of water. Burn
Strawberries. —Plant, if not already
done, even if it be late. Keep the
beds clean. If they are mulched,pull
up the weeds that force their way
through. Put on a mulch before the
fruit ripens, if not already done.—
Should there be a dry time, water, if
practicable. Those who have facili
ties for irrigation should provide for
Packages. —lf fruit is to be market
ed, have baskets and crates ready
and distinctly marked. There are so
many kinds of baskets now in the
market that one has a wide range in
section. If in doubt which to buy,
take the advice of your commission
merchant,as local prejudice has much
to do with the matter ; a style of bas
ket that is approved in one market
may not take in another.
KITCHEN GARDEN.— The first radish
es, cress, or lettuce of one's own gar
den ! No after crop ever seems so
welcome as these first fruits of our
spring sowing. Those who live in
mild climates,or who use glasses,may
now enjoy these. The reßt have to
wait a little longer.
Asparagus. —Cut from established
beds, taking care not to injure the
root, nor trample the beds. When
marketed it is bunched in bundles 6
to inches in diameter, according to
the season ; have the tops even ; cut
the buts even ; tie closely with two
basß strings, and keep moist to pre
vent wilting. If the beetle appears,
or its blackish caterpillar, each less
than half an inch long, cut or burn
every shoot on which it is found, if it
takes the whole. It is a serious troub
le, and demands severe treatment, or
the plantation is done for.
Ileets. —The early sowings should
be thinned to from 4 to 6 inches ac
cording to the distance between rows.
.Sow early sorts, if not already done.
Carrots. —l reat the same as beets,
but they need closer attention as to
weeding, which should be done very
