The Fertilisation of Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 14 April 1877
The Fertilisation of Plants. THE ' Australasian ' . says :--Dr. Darwin's new work on thc "fertilisation of the plants (The Effects of Cross and Self Fertilisation in the 'Vegetable Kingdom, by Charles Darwin, ïlurray) is said to be of considerable importance to plant-growers, and especially to seed-growers and to raisers of hybrid br crossbred plants. "The key note to the whole book, was struck when Mr. . Darwin observed that cross .bred ' seedlings ' were almost universally more robust and more 'vigorous than,,those which were the product of 1 self-fertÜisrtion." The mere act of crossing by itself does no good. ,' The good depends on the individuals which are crossed differing slightly in constitution, owing to their ' progenitors ' having been , subiected, dilling several generations, to slight conditions or to what.we. call, in our ignorance, spon taneous variation." The common practise of ?gardeners obtaining seeds from- different localities .is justified by Mr. Darwin's experi ...

If it does the jaded metropolitan good to seek the fresh air and the peaceful solititudé of the country., some times, it is also necessary that oui- .friends in the interior should take a city bath occasion ally. Sydney gives them a picture of; hitman activity which cannot fail to act as a corrective of the slow pace which is too . natural to quieter scenes and pursuits. They find that a few days Can be.., charmingly spent , here, and the annual visit. dining the, Ëxhibiton month--when Sydney is . at her best-is a happy break in the. montony, of .their experience.
