Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ...spring frost, fairly sheltered, but open to the free circulation of air. The aspect depends on circumstances, especially latitude and elevation. In temperate Europe the least favourable aspects are probably an eastern or south-eastern (on account of late frosts) and a southern or south-western (on account of the rapid evaporation of moisture). The site should, if possible, be so chosen, that water can be led on to it from a spring or stream, or that at any rate water may be found at a reasonable depth for the construction of a well. b. Area. This depends on the species, the method of treatment, the number of plants, whether they are pricked out or not, and the age at which they are finally removed. It is clear that no general rule can be given. By way of illustration it may be mentioned that for raising two-year-old seedlings of Scotch s. o pine or spruce, the area of the nursery should be about per cent. of the area to be annually planted at 4 feet apart; if the two-year-old seedlings are pricked out, and remain for another two years, the nursery should comprise at least 4 per cent of the area to be planted annually. Where broad leaved species are raised, such as oak or beech, the percentage is higher. It increases very rapidly with the age of the plants; for instance in the case of twice pricked out oaks, which are planted out at the age of 9 years at 10 feet apart, the area would amount to not less than 30 per cent. of the area to be planted annually. Shape. Whenever a free choice is possible, the shape of the nursery should be that of a square or rectangle, because it admits of a regular rectangular shape being given to the seed beds without waste of area. d. Fencing. The nursery must be thoroughly protected against cattle and game more
