2.5 The Practice and Science of Gardening-3
'Building a Fruit-Tree'
F. W. COSTIN , N.D.H., F.R.H.S.
From the earliest days of recorded history fruit trees have been raised by the simple processes of budding and grafting-the joining of a bud or scion to a root stock-and the method is well known, for it is the same today as on that day when Justice Shallow said to Falstaff: Nay, you shall see mine orchard, where in an arbour we will eat a ist year's pippin of my own grafting '.
But today in order to produce the modern tree with a degree of vigour, qualities of fruit, and other characters that can be known in advance, the material from which it is to be ' built ' -the bud or scion and the root stock-must be carefully studied and properly selected. In this way we build a tree to meet our needs.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
