“First, in buying nursery stock buy of reliable firms; refuse substitutions, and insist upon healthy and perfect plants. Then be ready for the planting, which means that the conditions of the ground should be right. Too many people put the cart before the horse, and select their trees, for instance, before the place for their reception is ready.”
