The seed is dropped from a planter, five or six seeds in a single line, at regular intervals i o to 1 2 in.
A narrow deep furrow is usually run immediately in advance of the planter, to break up the soil under the seed.
Before the Civil War each planter would have his own ginhouse.
This consideration should be carefully, remembered in the future by the planter who may require an evaporator and by the engineer who may be called upon to design or construct it, and more especially by a constructor without practical experience of the working of his constructions.
The comparatively rapid growth of the tree is its great recommendation to the planter; it is best raised from acorns sown on the spot, as they are very bitter and little liable to the attacks of vermin; the tree sends down a long tap-root, which should be curtailed by cutting or early transplanting, if the young trees are to be removed.
