WISCONSIN HORTICULTURE 
  (.-What tire the three nmost hardy 
and productive varieties of early ap- 
ples best suited for growing in south- 
ern Wisconsin' 
  A. l)tehess, MXfM ahon, Tctofsky. 
  Q.--Is the somewhat over-adver- 
tised blue rose worthy of cultivation 
otherwise than as a tnovelty, or is it 
of the "Verde" rose andi the seedless 
apple type variety? 
  A.-From    what we have seen of 
this rose, we are inelined to class it 
with such rema'rkalle creations as the 
Wondirlerrry, ('otnpass ('herry and 
Baby Rambler rose, all of which have 
some merits and make good catalog 
reading but will pass away for some- 
thing better.           W. ,[. M. 
  Q.-My a    larbor vitae hisdge show, 
bl'ak Spot.s in different phlaes this 
spring, sotne of theni as large as otte 
foot Situare. The leaves are perfectly 
black. What kin(d of a fungnis causes 
this? D)o yov know of ally retnldyv 
When I sprayed t.ty fruit trees the 
first time this spring (arsenate of 
li-ad and IBordehaux ttuxture). I gave 
those black spots a dose also. What 
the result will be I tannot tell. 
  A.-Th' dying out of the spots in 
the hedge is probably not lute to any 
insect or finigots parasite but rather 
to the weakening of the plants by the 
crowding or overgrowth of more vig- 
orous neighbors, and by winter in- 
jury from ice and snow, ;tntd probably 
accentuated by excessive pruning. Of 
course, you will realize that there is 
a fierce struggle for existence going 
on in an Arbor Vitae hedge and the 
weak branches of plant.s must suffer. 
There is nothing to do except to close 
the gap, either by so training the 
neighboring branches as to cover the 
gap or else by renewed planting.

  Q.-What is the most prolific fall 
sweet apple for Wisconsin? 
  A.-Early Sweet Russian or Yel- 
low Sweet. Anis. by W. J. M. 
  Q.-Would it be advisable to plant 
the Lombard pltitti o a commercial 
scale? 
  A.-Most certainly; it is one of the 
most reliable varieties of the tame 
phlms. Ans. by W. J. M. 
  Q.-Name six best hardiest peaches 
and (-ultttre. 
  A.--We know of no hardy peaches 
for Wisconsin except possibly a vari- 
ety grown by Mr. B. It. Bones of 
Racine. The history of this variety 
seenis to be very obscutre.
