In 1883 a Bulletin was issued by the Horticultural Department giving an outline of our trial since 1879, of some of the fruits and ligneous plants of the steppe sections of Eastern Europe and North Central Asia.
In 1885 we gave in Bulletin form a “Revised list of names of, and notes on, some of the fruits and shrubs of Northeast Europe, on trial on the college grounds and which have been sent out for trial during the past six years.” In this Bulletin full lists were given of our importations to which was added notes on their behavior on the college grounds, and at our trial stations in the Northwest. In 1892 we gave in Bulletin revised notes on selected varieties compiled mainly from sub-station reports. At this time we give brief notes which summarise our home experience and that of our trial stations up to date with such selected varities and species as we now have for distribution. But we also have in stock in limited quantity a large number of other varieties and species which have been favorably reported and propagated at other times. We do not graft and bud a full list of our valuable varieties at one time as it would extend our propagating work to a greater extent than our other College duties permit.
