The records in this notebook continue the sequence for the 1906 sweet pea experiments documented in notebook <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='/view/MS-ADD-10161-00001-00005-00009'>MS Add.10161/1/5/9</a>. Records are paginated 301-390; there is then a title page 'Farm 1906' page <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(143);return false;'>390v</a> followed by records paginated 400-476. After this there is a run of blank pages. At the back of the notebook is a set of maps showing the layout of the plant beds pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(251);return false;'>iv-vii</a>. The general format of the record is that the parents are recorded as numbers with a superscript or sometimes as a named variety. Since sweet peas can be selfed, some crosses have only a single parent. The date of sowing and the date of planting out are recorded, together with other observations on the plants such as colour and whether hooded or not see, for example, the detailed notes on pp <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(69);return false;'>337v-338</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(80);return false;'>345r</a> and <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(89);return false;'>349v</a>. There is a photograph on page <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(63);return false;'>334v</a>, dated 16 August 1906 and captioned on the back, showing a portion of a row 10 feet long containing 29 fertile and 11 sterile plants. The plant on page <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(201);return false;'>433v</a> is marked ‘v. important’.
