The college vineyard


The two vacant pages of the Bulletin give limited space for notes on our twelve years experience with the one acre on the college grounds known as the vineyard. Previous to my taking charge of the Department, this plot had been twice planted with vines which were lost almost wholly by root killing in winter. Believing the loss to result from too shallow planting the rows, were reset with strong, one year old plants in the bottom of holes eighteen inches deep, filling the holes gradually as the canes made growth.

With this deep planting no vines have been lost of hardy varieties in twelve years, except a few on a gravelly point where we shall re-set at a still greater depth.
