THE BAKBERRT. Culture, &c.—But little may be said respecting this well-known shrub, which grows spontaneously in this country and in Europe, bearing a small acid berry, much used as a pickle and preserve. It is readily propagated by seeds and suckers, in a light, rich soil. Fig. 142,. VARIETIES. Common JBed.—This is the variety most known, and its appearance and habits are too familiar to require any description here. Its color, when fully ripe, is a deep scarlet, with a slightly dark tinge. THE BLACKBERRY. Although the Blackberry grows plentifully in its wild state, yet it is now largely cultivated, either by planting the seed in rich soil, and manuring freely, or by setting out layers. VARIETIES The Kittatinny, Lawton and Wilson, are all choice kinds..
