From William Alexander Wooler   5 July 1862

Summary

Believes, contrary to CD, that when anthers arise from petals the development of the pollen is affected by the amputation of the petal.

Believes interbreeding can be used to combine desirable characters, but that, carried beyond narrow limits, it leads to deterioration of the breed.

Has been experimenting on crossing polyanthus.
