I HAVE been much interested in the notices given from time to time as to the influence of the scion on the stock, and vice versa. In the early vinery here we have a couple of Muscat vines worked on the Black Hamburg, and in the same house we have a Muscat on its own roots. Those worked on the Hamburg started fully. five or six days in advance of the one on its own roots, although they are nearly a fortnight behind the Hamburgs they are worked on, each of which has a rod of its own in addition to the Muscat worked on it. The stock would therefore appear to have forwarded the Muscat about a week; although I have never seen any difference in the ripening of the two, nor any effect on the fruit, yet the growth appears more robust and the leaves of better texture. In the late house we have a Hamburg worked on Lady Downe's. The Hamburg has shoots varying from three to six inches in length, in exactly the same stage as the other Hamburgs in the same house, while the rod of Lady Downe's filling the next rafter, on the same roots as the Hamburg has to draw its supply of sap from, is only just starting its buds; showing clearly, in this case, that the lateness of the stock has had no influence in retarding the earlier habit of the Hamburg. - Gardener's Chronicle and Agricultural Gazette.
