HEDGE PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

HEDGE PLANTS. Sir,—I «u pleased to see Mr. Wood's letter in Tht Autlraloiim of October 22, containing eoiae remark* upon hedge pleats, andsuggeeting the addition of the hakes and cherry plom, to those 1 recommended in the l'tomon. Bnt I must demur to his opinion that" the whitethorn may answer well on good, rich, damp soil, but the hakea will grow luxuriantly where the whitethorn can not. live." The whitethorn'Is partial to a deep and rich, hut by no means "damp" soil, A eotl of a dry nature is what the; whitethorn delights in, and so' that it be; deeply trenched, its composition is not of so much consequence. The whitethorn requtree cartful treatment to make a good hedge. When it has once arrived at the required proportions, it would last for an almost indefinite length of time. After it has become ■ a good fenoe, the only thing to look to, should betci'^nine it once a year with a hedge hilt; . if possible, So soon as the leaves turn brown In the autumn. If the hedge doss not grow ...

BIRD ISLAND, SOUTH SEA, AND FLAT ISLAND GUANOES. - TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

BIRD ISLAND, SOUTH SEA, AND FLAT ISLAND GUANOES. - TO THE EDITOR OF TDK AOBT&A LABIA V. Sir,—Permit me, through the medium of your columns, to stale my experience of the use of the above guanoes as fertilisers. In the circulars issued by the importers or their agents, we are there told that 2cwt. on land not much impoverished will cause an extra yield in a hay crop of one ton to the acre, or the same proportion in cereals. Now, Sir my experience (to my sorrow) is this:—I pur chased at Ballarat this season two and a half tons of Bird Island, .South Sea, and Flat Island guanoes, and sowed as much as 5cwt. to the acre, in a very good season, on a chocolate soil, cropped only four times previously. I left, by way of experiment, a piece of the land here and there without any manure. The result is, that not the slightest difference is perceptible on any of the crop, and if there was aDy virtue in the manure it would have shown in the crops before this. I am, Sir, yours most obedie...

THE FARM & GARDEN. THE SWEET POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — The Australasian — 29 October 1864

THE FARM & GARDEN. THE SWEET POTATO. Sir,—The soil for this plant must be deep .and well tilled, -as tbe roots grow to the depth of twelve Inches, or mora, from the surface. If the land is dry flat planting will do; hut should it be wet or moist at any season, the roots should be planted on raised ridges. There are many varieties of the sweet potato, the bulbs varying in colour from white to yellow and deep red. The white is the best. Another much prized is the Bourbon. The planting is sometimes done by putting in cutting! six inches or more in length, placing them half their depth in the ground, and at distances of three feet apart. September and October are tbe best months for this purpose. A preferable mode to the above is to cut up the bulbs intended to be planted, as in planting the common potato. Plant them in a piece of good ground, about two feet apart, and one or two inches deep. These will give nice cuttings in Ave or six weeks, and by planting them as before descr...
