    Abstract

    THE pruning of fruit trees is an operation that demands, on the part of the operator, first, an intimate knowledge of the natural habits of the particular trees, and, in the second place, considerable experience of the general results which follow a proper system of pruning. Unfortunately, every gardener and amateur who cultivates ever so few trees gets the conviction that, come what will, he must prune, and, if he is ignorant of the methods, nevertheless he mutilates the branches and imagines that his trees will respond satisfactorily to the treatment given them. In these circumstances it is not to be wondered at if the value of pruning in any form or degree has come to be questioned by certain fruit-growers and experimentalists, who have had very little diffibetter to expose all parts of the tree to the sun and of diminishing the crop.

    Fruit Tree Pruning. A Practical Text-book for Fruitgrowers working under the Climatic and Economic Conditions prevailing in Temperate Australia.

    By George Quinn. Pp. vi + 230. (Adelaide, Australia: R. E. E. Rogers, Acting Government Printer, 1910.) Price 1s. 3d.
