Mr Bilbrey reported the overall condition of crops in North Mississippi County as good but slated that all but a few isolated areas nrc in need of a heavy rnin.

Most varieticj conmionty nserl us decorative plants cnn be kept In bounds by Kjiniiai p,- lmmK . advises M. W. Slaples. field supervisor ut the Davey Tree Export Company. Narrow leafed evergreens with fmc- twigs nnd Indelerminale growth can be st veidy sheared in June, provided enough foliage -is leu to prevent .sunscald before new twigs can be eslabllshcd. They may even be pruned twice « year'wliere formality is desired. In any event, -June Is the ideal lime t o sl ,i p of[ unwanted growth, New foliacc soon will cover up Ihe heavy cuts Moderate pruning ol evergreens may be done at, any time, but the most satisfactory results arc obtained at thus season. Since old. overgrown t'vcrgiwir Hedges are almost imixissjble lo rejuvenate, they should be replaced with young and vigorous plants. All too often, these old hedjje.s are poor varieties anyway and not well suited lo modern needs. New hedges should be allowed to expand, gradually, cautions Mr. Stupes. Evergreens with coarse Lsvig s and determinate growth, such ns pines spruces and firs, call for u different pruning approach. Here one-hall lo three-quarters of current t;rowlh meaning Ihe last growili formed, may be trimmed. For drastic cutting, the woody evergreen has to be pruned .like a deciduous tree with waterproofing of all wuuiui.i.
