CELERY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 13 February 1914
CELERY. It is the object of every good kitchen gardened to have a supply of well bleached, orisp celery, and to have it as early and late as possible is one of the points in gardening to which attention should be paid. At the same time,- there are dilliculties in the way of obtaining it early in some places to which it is advisable to call atten tion, as the situation best fitted to bring forward early peas, cauliflowcrs and potatoes, is not always the one that produces early celery. It is generally admitted that the celery .of our gardens is an improved variety of a wild plantl found in ditch es and other marshy places, where it grows, seeds, and reproduces itself in the usual way; and it is generally found in the greatest vigor when near the sea coast or a tidal river, salt in some shape being beneficial to it.. Grow ing naturally in such places, it is hard. ly surprising that the progress of the cultivated plant in. dry, hot garden soils during the summer months is slow and unsat...

TURFTOPICS. (By "Flemington.") For some tino the name of Brattle has. been a good deal on people's tongues in the discussions on the New market- Handicap. The Malster filly was generally supposed to be sorisething in- the naturo of a flyer, but that she is not exactly a wonder was demon strated on Saturday on the Sydney side, when she was beaten in an ordin ary. Flying Handicap. This scarcely reads like Newmarket form, but . it might be too" soon yet to condeom Brattle. In viciw of her big engage ment ini Melbourno this month, the trainer of Brattle may not hlive-.her thoroughly tuned up yet, and thus we can perhaps look for an improvement in the filly by the end of the month. It imay turn out, however, that our Now South Wales friends will be able to put soomething obetter into the field tilan Brattle when it comes to the Newmart ket Handicap. There is a whisper that Philio may have to be reckoned with in conncotion nt ilh the big Autumn sprints. It is a very long while since Phili...
