Hardy English Walnut Orchards No longer an experiment in Zero Climates Plant an English Walnut orchard this Fall. Make a beginning and add to it each season. No bank failures, business depres sions, nor trust investigations can interfere with the's source of pleasure and income, for its rock foundation is the developmentcf a natural resource. Start with rugged acclimated trees, grown under severe climatic conditions, with temperature far below zero at times-conditions that breed iron-clad vigor and vitality, and that produce trees so hardy they may be planted in cold climates with the same assurance of successful fruiting as Peach trees. We bel eve this is the only northern locality where commercial orchardsof English Walnuts may be seen, some of them containing hundreds of trees which have been bearing regularly for more than twenty years. For the lawn or driveway, English Walnut is exqu sitely beautiful, with its smooth light-gray bark, luxu r.ant dark-green foliage, lofty, symmetrical growth. A homeful tree to plant about the home. Rochester parks and public streets contain many beautiful bearing trees, apparently as hardy as the Maples ard Elms-at least, thriving under the same conditions,. and producing annually delicious nuts as well as shade- truly a most delightful combination. We have unl'mi'ed faith in trees bred and grown under these conditions, and are sure that those who p ant our hardy strains of English Walnuts will be well pleased. The picture shows a Mayo Engl'sh Walnut tree planted in 1907 , began bearing in 1911. Superior quality, extreme hardiness, early bearer, safe to plant.
