Scientific and Systematic Pomology1


IT may be taken as a sign of the development of research in fruit culture in this country, and of the interest which has been aroused in connection therewith among growers of fruit and progressive horticulturists generally, that the well-known firm of nurserymen, Messrs. George Bunyard and Go., Ltd., of Maidstone, has considered the time ripe for the issue of a new quarterly journal devoted exclusively to pomology. The editor, Mr. E. A. Bunyard, a member of the firm named, is recognised both as a practical grower of wide experience and as one of the foremost authorities on systematic pomology and pomological literature. Under his guidance the Journal of Pomology should without difficulty establish itself as a publication of scientific value, meeting the needs of a branch of horticulture which has advanced with rapid strides in its importance for the country economically and physiologically since the day when the late Mr. W. E. Gladstone advised farmers to grow fruit for jam production as a remedy for agricultural depression, and is at present none too well catered for in this respect.
