Early-sown grain is often injured by flying sand and gravel.
These are taken off and sown in drills, like seed.
Potatoes and turnips are recommended to be sown in the yard (kitchen-garden).
Not satisfied with seed-sown grass or meadow turf, they experimented with seaside turf and found it answer admirably.
They are propagated by cuttings, or from the leaves, which are cut off and pricked in welldrained pots of sandy soil, or by the scales from the underground tubes, which are rubbed off and sown like seeds, or by the seeds, which are very small.
