A correspondent ot the Watertown (N. Y.) Times gives the result of his expcrience io pruoing apple trees ; ' lt bas long been a practice among farmers to commence pruning applo trees in February, mainly, I suppose, because thero is leisure time. There are reasons wby this Bhould not be done. There will not bo sofficient action io the tree to harden the surface where a limb has been taken off before the sap ascends in the epriDg. When this ac√ľon does take plfice, the sap flowa out and spreads over the Burrounding bark, and by some ehemical actiou whieh takes place, it is ohanged to a poisonous fluid, which greatly injures the tree. Trim your fruit trees in August, nnd I wil guaranice you will huve no blaek-hearted trees."
