Dipping Roots Of Fruit Trees
In planting an almond orchard would it be of any benefit to dip the
young trees in a solution of bluestone and lime dissolved?
We doubt if it would serve any good purpose. If done at all the dip
should be carefully prepared in accordance with the formula for bordeaux
mixture, for excess of bluestone will kill roots. Healthy trees do not
need such treatment, and we doubt if unhealthy ones can be rendered safe
or desirable by it.
