The belief in the prairie states has been too common that only the professional nurseryman can successfully propagate the fruit trees, ornamental trees, shrubs, bulbs, perennial plants, etc., needed for the fitting up of the true home.
But a change of belief is now indicated by the reception of many queries as to the best way of propagating a favorite tree, shrub, or flower. As a rule the querists do not ask how to bud, graft, or set a cutting but the way to save and plant certain seeds, the best way to increase the number of a favorite bulb or perennial, or the best way of propagating a variety of fruit tree, ornamental tree, or shrub.
