one flower to but of course there is no system about tke crosses thev bring hybridization is attempted the florist must be certain that the plants are As a by close observation the florist may be come able to tell when to apply the pol Not a few plants develop stigma and anthers at the same and with them it is necessary to remove the an thers before they and at the same time by means of a fine or
