THE HOME ORCHARD:

The main work in the orchard at this time of the year, is the spraying and protection of the young fruit, which is rapidly developing. With passionfruit for instance, it is necessary to spray at least once a month with bordeaux mixture for brown spot, which is easily discernible on the leaves. The same spray should be applied to all varieties of lemons for the control of verrucosis and wither tip. This spray should be repeated again in twenty-one days, if satisfactory control is to be obtained.
