Similarly, dissolve the dry lime sulphur and poui it in the barrel last. Pnlsh filling, stir thoroughly and apply at once. If liquid lime sulphur is used, it can be poured in the barrel last without diluting it. Never mix concentrated lime sulphur and lead arsenate together. The mixture will turn black and will be ineffective. Cherries do not need this spray but it is essential that plums receive it before they blossom to control brown rot. The plum blossoms earlier than the apple and should be sprayed earlier. If they are now in bloom and have not been sprayed, wait until the petals drops. All present conditions point to a good crop of fruit this year. Most fruit trees are loaded with fruit buds. Last year's drouth will, however, no doub't reduce the crop on many old weak trees.
