Setting Out Small Seedlings
Here a furrow has been made with a flat spade along the clothesline shown in the preceding picture; and a trench is being dug with a curved spade, the excavation being just wide enough and deep enough to give ample room for the seedlings or plants with roots that are to be set out along this part of the line. For the setting out of cuttings, the narrow trench made by the spade is sufficient.
