About Lastingness 



It makes absolutely no difference 
what type of construction you put 
u^, the cost of the benches, the 
cost of ventilating apparatus, the 
cost of the heating system, the 
cost of glass, putty, and the cost 
of the glazing and painting, will 
be exactly.tl^ same'in one house, 
as in the other. 

These are fixed costs. 

You can't fix them any other way, 
no matter how you figure. 



This being so, it is only the logical 
thing to spend a few^dollars more, 
and get a frame of everlasting 
lastingness, that will protect these 
fixed costs, and make their expen- 
diture a permanent investment. 

That is exactly what the L. & B. 
Iron Frame construction does. 

When you are ready to talk busi- 
ness, say when and where, and 
we will be there.

We are Rose growers especially for the shipping trade. We 
cut our Roses more in the bud, and grow them cooler, so that 
they will ship in better condition. All of our Roses are 
grown in one large range of glass, and are brought in from 
our greenhouses two and three times per day.

GUARDING GLASS 

FROM HAIL LOSSES 

Where hail storms are frequent and insurance conseq^iently high, 
screening greenhouses from the large stones is a protection cheap hy com- 
parison. How it is done m Colorado, where storms of great damage are 
customary spring visitors, is described for florists in the "hail belt." 



wmm 




T IS. exciting, but it could 
hardly be called a pleasure, 
to stand and watch hail- 
stones from the size of 
cherries up to the size of 
baseballs drop from the 
skies with an awful roar 
and bring with them the 
roof in splintered glass, 
which falls on the benches 
and aisles. Sometimes, when the storm 
continues for fifteen or thirty minutes, 
the damage to plants by the hail coming 
Ihrough the open roof is also serious. 
Many florists in sections of extra hail 
risk have had their enthusiasm as well 
as their glass smashed by hail, wh«ri' 
they might easily have been protected 
with screening. One of the best florists ' 
organizations in existence is the Florists ' 
Hail Association, but even it does not 
pick up the splintered glass and repair 
the broken lights and plants. 

Screen Prevent Severe Losses. 

Somewhat over a year ago a severo 
hail storm cut down the outside crop and 
broke over two tons of glass in less than 
thirty minutes at the greenhouses of the 
Morgan Floral Co., at Fort Morgan, 
Colo. Part of this firm 's houses are 
screened and part not screened. There 
was no loss of glass where the liouses 



were properly screened with %-incli 
mesh ' ' rabbit wire. ' ' 

At the time L. J. Beid, the proprietor, 
was on a vacation in the Eocky Moun- 
tain national park and af the very hour 
of the storm he was visiting C. A. Espe- 
lin, at Fort Collins, Colo., discussing the 
frequency of hail in different sections. 
Mr. Eeid remarked that he had seen more 
than his share of hail damage and did 
not expect as frequent hails in the future 
as he had experienced in the past. It 
was not until three days later that he 
learned that while he was uttering those 
worils the hail was hammering the glass 
out of liis roof. 

It may be of interest to other florists 
to know the method adopted by the Mor- 
gan Floral Co. to screen for hail. The 
illustration herewith shows the effect of 
the hail and also shows the absolute 
protection afforded by a %-inch mesh 
of woven wire when used as a soreen by 
being stretched from ridge to ridge. Only 
a small section of the place is shown, so 
as to give a close-up view, but through- 
out the whole place the same results 
were obtained by screening. 

How Screen Is Placed. 

On the left of the picture it will be 
noted there are some lath shades lying 
on the roof. These were being used as a 



temporary shade when the hail occurred, 
and they acted as a partial protection 
from hail, lessening the damage by about 
one-half. On the right in the foreground 
it will be noted that the hail broke prac- 
tically every light on this, the west, side 
of the house, but just beyond, wherever 
the woven wire screen covered the glass, 
there was- not a single pane broken. If 
you look carefully you can see the screen 
stretching from ridge to ridge over tht 
glass. 

Overcoming Objections. 

The greatest objection to screen- 
ing of this nature is that a damp, heavy 
snow will collect on it and weigh it 
down, thus making it necessary during a 
heavy storm to shake the snow through 
the screen with a pole. Also, if the 
screen is supported above the ridge with 
a framework of pipe, as on the ridge of 
the house at the right in the illustration, 
there is danger of this weight caueii^ 
the framework to tip over |Unless 
thoroughly braced. If the framework 
should give way, there might be much 
damage by splitting the ridge and break- 
ing the glass. Where the ventilators are 
hinged at the ridge the screen can be 
allowed simply to rest on the ridges, of 
a ridge and furrow type of range, and if 
llie screen is nailed thoroughly to the

ridge of the two outside houses, then 
only a light framework is necessary to 
support the screen on the outside of the 
outer houses. 

Erecting Screen. 

Where houses are built separately it 
will generally be found that the cost of 
supports is greater than the cost of the 
wire screening, and the same is almost 
true of the ridge and furrow type of 
houses where the ventilators open at 
the ridge, thus making it necessary to 
erect an iron framework two or three 
feet above the ridge. 

Perhaps the most convenient type of 
houses to screen would be a range of 
ridge and furrow houses, each house from 
twenty to twenty-two feet wide and any 
convenient length, but with the ventila- 
tors hinged at the ridge. This would give 
a reasonable amount of liead room for 
repair work, when walking in the gut- 
ters, and, further, the ridges which sup- 
port the wire would be close enough to 
prevent too much sag in the wire. If the 
ridge is made from 2x6-inch beams like 
the older type of wooden houses, so that 
it extends a few inches above the house, 
the screen will give a better protection 
to the glass near the ridge on account 
of being farther from the glass. Of 
course the ventilators will be right 
against the screen when open, and con- 
sequently might be broken in a severe 
hail storm if left open, but since vents 
are always closed or nearly so when a 
severe storm threatens, there is little 
likelihood of a loss from this source. 

Determining Size of Mesb. 

The type of wire now in use by the 
Morgan Floral Co. is %-ineh mesh woven 
wire, made from No. 18 or No. 20 gal- 
vanized wire. This type. of woven wire 
is frequently called rabbit wire and is 
made in several widths. Six-foot widths 
are commonly used and are tied to- 
gether every eighteen inches with a loop 
of small wire, thus making a complete 
net resting on the ridges above the 



glass. The only objection to this 
method is that the mesh is so fine that it 
catches and holds the damp, heavy 
snow. 

One-inch mesh would probably be 
more satisfactory and afford equally good 
protection. The company has now 
covered the rest of the houses with inch 
mesh. This, at first, would seem rather 
coarse, but since small hail does no 
damage to the glass and since the large 
stones will rarely come through the 
screen without striking at least one of 
the wires and thereby losing their force, 
it is expected that this screen will be a 
complete protection; also the 1-inch mesh 
i) less expensive, lighter and less trouble- 
some during heavy snow storms. It can 
be obtained from any dealer in poultry 
netting and is manufactured by several 
■wire companies. 

The cost of screening in this way, 
where no expensive supports are used, is 
surprisingly low as compared with the 
I)rescnt cost of glass. The glass which 
was saved by screen in this one hail 
storm amounted to over three times the 
original cost of the screen, and, if the 
damage had been as great on the east 
side of the houses as it was on the west 
side, the saving would have been nearly 
twice as great. A screen of this sort 
is also sometimes liplpful in protecting 
against flying shingles, slate, icicles from 
overhanging roofs, or baseballs. 

Screens and Sunlight. 

When asked if this screen does not 
shade the houses, Mr. Reid replied, "Be- 
fore we started using this type of screen 
we wondered if it would have a detri- 
mental effect by obstructing the sun in 
midwinter. We wrote to others in 
Colorado who had used this same type 
of screen and thej' replied that they 
were never able to notice any difference 
in the light or its effect where the houses 
were screened in this way as compared 
with unscreened houses. After several 
years' use we can say the same. The 
wire really obstructs little of the light 



and, being galvanized, it reflects some 
of the light. Also by preventing hail 
breakage we are able to keep the glass 
tighter, and with less laps, which helps 
overcome any little shade the wire may 
throw. Anyhow, we have lots of sun- 
shine in Colorado." 

There are many other methods of 
screening. Some prefer to make frames 
on which to tack their screen, so that 
is can be removed each fall and replaced 
each spring. These, however, are always 
more or less in the way, both when on 
the ground and when on the roof, and, 
should a hail occur early in the spring 
during cold weather, there is a chance 
that the screen might not yet have been 
replaced on the roof and thereby one 
might not only have a hail loss, but also 
frost damage following it. Some locali- 
ties have experienced hail just at Easter 
time, followed by a freeze. Also some 
may prefer to screen practically as the 
Morgan Floral Co. is doing, but to roll 
the whole screen up for over winter, 
perhaps letting it lie in a roll in one of 
the gutters. In this way damage by 
heavy snow is avoided, but there is the 
extra labor to be considered each year, 
and also there is still the possibility of 
a storm when the screen is not over 
the glass. 

The question whether or not to screen 
one's glass depends on the hail fre- 
quency of the locality. If the locality 
has been visited frequently by hail, 
similar occurrences may be expected in 
the future, and surely persons living in 
such localities should consider the ad- 
visability of screening. 



Springfield, Mass.— The florists' group 
of the local chamber of commerce have 
issued a formal declaration of war upon 
the "curbstone florist." At a recent 
meeting of the chamber, the florists 
joined their voices with those of other 
trades that are bothered with these non- 
rent-payers, in a protest that it is hoped 
will result in their elimination.

THE RETAIL STORE 



A PAGE OF HINTS AND HELPS 
FOR THE RETAIL FLORIST 




HANDLING COMPLAINTS BY MAIL. 

Handling a dissatisfied customer is 
not easy. It is harder by mail than in 
person. If a customer is face to face 
with him, the florist can state his side 
of the case easily and meet the facts 
presented as adroitly as is possible. Not 
so by letter. But complaints by mail in 
this trade might be much more easily 
handled than they are if florists had the 
skill that has come to others as the re- 
sult of long practice. Here are the most 
important points, according to a man 
so skilled, in handling dissatisfied cus- 
tomers by correspondence. It will pay 
all florists to give them consideration. 
They are: 

Avoid hostility. 

Avoid delays; if you cannot reply 
fully immediately, write anyway and 
promise information later. 

Give your decision in the first words 
of the letter; don't hold it to the last. 
Be hearty in everything, not grudging. 

Be just to yourself as well as to your 
customer. 

Don't be merely liberal. Stand up 
for your goods. Don 't let customers get 
a low idea of your estimate of your 
goods by being too liberal in replacing. 

And finally, be human. 



TAKING STIB OUT OF EASTER. 

That the holiday hurry is not a neces- 
sary part of Easter business was demon- 
strated this year at the retail store of 
the Miller Floral Co., Salt Lake City. 
On the day before Easter the store was 
filled to overflowing with customers, 
but there was not the least confusion 
in any department. 

Mr. Miller decided last Easter, when 
he found it necessary for his store crew 
to work all night to fill orders, that 
something should be done. It was not 
only the working all night that both- 
ered him, but the fact that when the 
time came to fill the orders, many items 
had been sold a half dozen times. This 
was especially true of cut flowers. The 
salesmen had been selling flowers from 
the same vase all day, with the conse- 
quence that when it came to filling the 
orders a great many substitutions were 
necessary. 

The store March 26 showed that his 
efforts had surely been rewarded. Two 
packing and wrapping tables had been 
installed, large enough to accommodate 
four wrappers. As soon as a customer 
had made a purchase, the salesman took 
the flowers or plant, together with in- 
voice and card, to one of the wrappers. 
The goods were immediately packed in 
the presence of the purchaser. If the 
order was to be delivered that day, the 
packer took the package to the route 
man as soon as it was packed. The man 
in charge of the delivery divided the 
city into four sections and used one 
truck for each section. As soon as he 
received the package from the wrapper 
he routed it and placed it in one of the 
four stalls provided. As soon as a 



driver came in from a trip he fouiior a 
load waiting. Without the least/eon- 
fusion he was_>bki to reload his wagon 
and start;f<ylf againylf the ^ ordj 4- was 
not ^ tJe delivered uirtit''fKe following 
day the packer iced it and placed it in a 
large storage icebox built for the pur- 
pose. It was left in this icebox until 
early the next morning, when it was 
delivered. 

Prices of everything in the store were 
in plain sight of the buyer. Special tags 
were made for the cut flower vases. On 
these tags were the name, the grade and 
the price of each item. Pot plant labels 
were printed and each pot contained a 
tag giving the price. 

The whole system worked like a well 
oiled machine. When 10 p. m. came the 
doors were locked and everybody was 
ready to go home. 

Mr. Miller has been highly compli- 
mented on his new system. He feels 
well repaid for the effort he put forth 
to perfect it. G. J. B. 



DENVER'S NEW STORE. 



The Rockmont Opens. 

Two of Denver's progressive young 
men, long well known to the florists of 
the country, Herbert A. Clausen and 
Carl L. Gross, recently formed a part- 
nership, incorporating under the dis- 
tinctive title, "The Eockmont for 
Flowers. ' ' 

Mr. Clausen was for many years a 
member of the firm conducting the 
America Flower Shop, of Denver, while 



Mr. Gross was witli the Alplia Floral 
Co., of Denver, for some fifteen years. 

The location selected for the new 
store is in the Ideal building, at 821 
Seventeenth street. It is the only flo- 
rists' store on tliis street. 

The store has been entirely rear- 
ranged and decorated, at considerable 
expense, and presents a most attractive 
sight. The street frontage is seventeen 
feet, with one large display window, 
thirteen feet wide, and on the alley side 
another window, fifteen feet wide. The 
height is about twenty feet, affording 
splendid space for display. 

Interior Features. 

As one steps inside the store, he is 
pleased by the soft, restful color. The 
walls are finished in a beautiful French 
gray, tiffany, with a small border of 
green, purple and blue in water colors. 
The ceiling has a white background, 
with panels of Moorish design done in 
water colors. 

On the right of the store, about half- 
way down, is a beautiful display icebox, 
with an electric drop light, whi«h can 
be turned on and off from both the store 
and the workroom at the rear of the 
store proper. 

In the rear of the store is a large cir- 
cular balcony, with large posts, which 
can be used for the display of large 
ferns and palms. This balcony is 
reached by an iron stairway, done in old 
copper, and in the rear of it is the office 
and rest rooms. 

In the store on the left, across from 
the icebox, is a beautiful corsage table,

with a small ribbon case, where fancy

Thorough Preparations. 



To be ready for the opening of the 
store, March 23, a large force of men 
worked late into the night of March 22. 
being still at work when the theater 
crowds were going home, but on the 
morning of the opening daj', when men 
walked by on their way to their places 
of business, they were greeted by the 
beautiful sight presented by the display 
windows. 

At 10:30 a. ni., when the doors Avere 
opened, a long line formed, waiting to 
gain entrance, and from this hour until 
late in the evening the store was 
crowded with visitors. A large quarter- 
page advertisement was run in the two 
evening papers March 22, and also in 
the morning papers March 23. In ad- 
dition, some 2,000 announcements, got- 
ten up in elaborate style, with cover of 
Spanish leather, had been distributed 
throughout the city. 

Shiccessful Start. 

Three clerks were kept busy dis- 
trfbuting roses to the ladies. The sup- 
'gfy of roses was exhausted by 2 o'clock, 
5nd next came carnations and jonquils, 
some 4,000 flowers having been handed 
out when the supply of these ran out. 



A New Behabllltatlon Flan. 

Florists all over the country are learn- 
ing that they can be of much help in the 
widespread movement to provide means 
of livelihood to the many men who came 
out of the war disabled in such a way 
Ihat they were unable to continue at the 
trade which they pursued before the war. 

In The Eeview for November 25, 1920, 
there was an article tolling of the work 
among these disabled men that the Fed 
eral Board of Vocational Education, 
Division of Rehabilitation, is doing. The 
article also sliowcd how growers and 
nurserymen could use these men. Since 
that time a number of these men have 
been jdaced in nurseries and gieenhouses 
in various parts of the country. 

Houston Heard From. 

Now comes tlie news from Houston, 
Tex., telling of the latest example of 
tliis work among the florists. Its florists 
l)elieve Houston can become one of the 
largest shippers of flowers in the country, 
that Houston can grow flowers that are 
now being shipped in from other states 
and in that way can give to these ex- 
service men the means of obtaining a 
livelihood. 

A cemmittee of. business men and 
women have interested themselves in 
erecting an ex-service men's home and 
sanitarium, with the added feature of a 
nursery farm in connection. Some of 
Houston's florists have interested them- 




New Store of the Rockmont for Flowers as Seen Through Window. 



It is estimated that between 6,000 and 
7,000 people visited the store between 
10:30 a. m. and 6 p. m. During the 
afternoon music was rendered by an 
orchestra concealed behind a bank of 
jialms on the balcony. 

The members of the firm, Herbert A. 
Clausen and Carl L. Gross, were con- 
gratulated on their careful attention to 
the arrangement of all the details of 
this beautiful store, as another step 



selves in the venture and are backing 
it Both financially and morally. They 
are giving their expert advice and ob- 
taining facts and figures for the com- 
mittee to use in their drive for a fund 
of $70,000 to buy the land and erect a 
Iiome with all club and home features. 

Plans Have Been Drawn.' 

Plans for the buildings have already 
been drawn and include greenhouses, 



hospital features, clubrooms and other 
necessary places. 

According to reliable information, 
Houston florists buying cut flowers from 
outside points send more than $100,000 
out of that city annually and the state 
of Texas sends more than $1,000,000 out 
of the state annually for the purchase 
of flowers, palms and bulbs. 

The plan is to erect this home for 
shell-shocked soldiers, sailors and 
marines, giving them a chance to become 
self-sustaining men, with the added 
chance of keeping their minds occupied 
and of keeping out in the open, where, 
according to doctors, they will have their 
best chance to get well. These men are 
now stationed in hospitals where the 
government is providing them with medi- 
cal care and food only, with nothing for 
them to do in order to keep their minds 
ofl:' themselves. Viewed from a purely 
philanthropic standpoint, these are the 
men who have given their best in life 
for their country and now it is the peo- 
ple's chance to show that their sacrifice 
is! appreciated. 

Expected to Expand. 

The establishment will be strictly a 
business affair, with the bulk of the 
profits going for salaries to the men and 
the upkeep of the place and the balance 
into the treasury to be paid back to the 
original donors or to improve the place 
and build further or do whatever the 
board of supervisors determines. This 
board will be made up of representative 
citizens of Houston. 

A quiet campaign will be waged to 
start the first unit and put the place 
on a practicable basis. 



GBOWING FLOWEBING ANNUALS. 

For natural beauty and pleasing color 
effects it is hard to beat some of the old- 
fashioned flower gardens made up of 
annual plants. Nowadays temporary 
plantings are not relied upon when con- 
ditions will warrant the use of more per- 
manent material, such as shrubs and 
perennials. Annual flowering plants, 
however, should certainly be encouraged 
where planting for winter as well as 
summer effect is not possible, says Farm- 
ers' Bulletin 1171, "Growing Annual 
Flowering Plants," recently published 
by the United States Department of Ag- 
riculture. The bulletin outlines different 
ways of utilizing annuals, tells how they 
should be started and grown, and de- 
scribes many of the common varieties. 
It is a practical guide for the cultiva- 
tion of such plants, and may be found 
useful by florists who do home planting 
or who are interested in annuals for 
tut flowers. 

Copies of the bulletin can be obtained 
free on application to the United States 
Department of Agriculture, Washington, 
D. C. 

MAUFF'S ANNIVERSARY. 

This is the fortieth year that the 
Mauff Floral Co., Denver, Colo., has 
been in existence. As one of its anni- 
versary celebrations, an attractive 
booklet is being sent out to the cus- 
tomers and friends of the company. 
The booklet contains a brief history of 
the company and its policy. It is well 
illustrated with views of the company's 
store and greenhouses and the portrait 
of Manager A. E. Mauff. The booklet is 
arranged in an appealing form and 
probably will be kept as a remembrance 
by many friends of the company.

BOSES UNDER GLASS. 



In Early Days. 

My first experience in growing roses 
under glass began about twenty years 
ago. In the particular district where 
I was, American Beauty reigned su- 
preme. Any bench that had head room 
enough grew Beauties and nothing else. 
Bride and Bridesmaid were grown on 
the side benches, with occasionally a 
few Perle des Jardins. Meteor for red 
had a house to itself, as to do it well re- 
quired a high temperature. 

At that time a man roomed in the 
greenhouse shed and boarded in a board- 
ing house on place, being paid $10 to $18 
a month, according to his ability. It was 
only an exceptional man that received 
$20 a month. On the smaller places he 
had to get up at 4 o 'clock and help pack 
and take his turn at firing. To get a 
position at the better establishments he 
either had to have a friend or get his 
name on it waiting list. 

The Transition. 

Beauty in those days was a different 
rose from today. It was replanted with 
young stock annually and produced 
readily three times the flowers it does 
today and of better quality. It was a 
grand rose, but its day is over. 

When Killarney first came nobody 
had a good word for it, but when its 
possibilities under proper culture were 
demonstrated Killarney and its sports 
were supreme. On the place where I 
was at that time we had 4,000 Killarney 
one year; the next year we had 60,000 
of this family. We still have Double 
White Killarney, which, well grown, is 
still the rose par excellence in its color. 

In red, meanwhile, we had General 
MacArthur, which, while a fine rose, was 
too single and opened too quickly. Lib- 
erty was not dependable enough. Then 
came Richmond, which for years had 
the field to itself. Following that came 
Milady, which with some growers is still 
the only red, a beautilful rose when 
well done. Hoosier Beauty would still 
be extensively grown were it not for 
Hadley, which when well grown is with- 
out a peer in its class. I remember, in 
March, 1917, at the show held in Phila- 
delphia, a vase of Hadley with 7-foot 
stems, and flowers in proportion. I 
think it was the finest vase of roses I 
have yet seen. 

In yellow we had Melody and Ladv 
Hillingdon; the latter when well grown 
was a real yellow. Then came Sunburst 
and Mrs. Aaron Ward, which we still 
have with us, and both are money- 
makers for those who do them well. 
Ward as a corsage rose is in a class by 
itself. ^ 

Progress in Pinks. 

In pink we had Maryland, which with 
some growers proved extremely popular, 
as, properly handled, it was a great 
producer. While Radiance was an easy 
doer, the flower was not liked. Shawyer 
had brief popularity. Antoine Rivoire,

or Taft, as a fancy rose was a beautiful 
flower. Lady Alice Stanley was well 
liked by some and grown extensively. 
Jonkheer J. L. Mock had its brief run. 
Then came Mrs. Chas. Russell, wliich, 
well grown, was the finest pink rose of 
its day and is still popular. Then 
Ophelia gave us a class of pink which 
was an eye-opener. I have seen tlie 
flowers of this rose in its different 
stages sold as yellow, pink and, when 
open, white. It certainly is in a class 
of its own, and, with its sports and 
seedlings, will be with us for many 
years to come. Seedling of Ophelia and 
Shawyer, came Columbia, the finest rose 
of its color to date, a free grower, yet a 
good commercial rose in summer or win- 
ter, a money-maker at all times. A 
house of this rose in crop, well grown, is 
a sight to be long remembered. 

Next came Premier, which is taking 
the place long held by American Beauty 
and, as T recall the vases of it at the 



More than a quarter of a century 
of experience with roses and a rep- 
utation for producing some of the 
best stock that is received on the 
New York market lend more than 
ordinary ^rength to the utterances 
of Anthony Ruzicka on the subject 
of his "queen of flowers." The sug- 
ge^ions he gives in this article are 
of great value to those less familiar 
with roses and may be read with 
profit by all those who grow the 
florins' ^aple. 



Xew York show, isWell' nainM, for it 
certainly is Premior in its Color class. 
Among the newer roses we have Dun- 
lop, Pilgrim, Crusader and' Putterfly. 
Of these only Butterfly has inade a hit 
in New York. It is extremely 'pbpular. 
The others are still on trial. Wx; have 
other candidates for favor coming this 
year, which, if needed, will find their 
place or be discarded, as they must 
prove profitable as well as popular. 

Soil for Boses. 

Soil for roses may be made from a 
good sod taken from any soil that will 
grow a good corn crop, laid in piles, 
with from one-fourth to one-third good 
cow manure, in alternate layers in the 
fall. A lighter soil requires less manure 
than a heavier soil. The compost should 
he thoroughly chopped down and mixed 
before filling the benches. At this time 
apply to a bench 4x150 feet thirty 
pounds of cither 16-per cent acid i)hos- 
phate or finely ground bone meal. Both 
are good and price usually governs as to 
which is used. The bench is then ready 
for planting. 

Young Plants. 

Every grower should try both grafted 
and own-root plants of each novelty, 



unless for some reason the introducer 
advises otherwise, as under some con- 
ditions grafted and own-root do etjually 
well, while under others either may 
prove sui)erior. This should be deter- 
mined b}' each grower for himself. 
Usually grafted plants will do equally 
well the first year, but be much better 
as they get older. I have seen them 
G and 7 years old and still quite profit- 
able. In l)uying plants a grower should 
bo particular wlierc he buys, so as not to 
bring into his place some disease, which 
it will take time and money to eradi- 
cate. Doing his own propagating, he 
should avoid weak and sickly plants. 
The best bench on the place is none too 
good for young stock. (Jrafted stock, 
unless grown on a large scale, can 
usually be bought cheaper and better 
than the grower can propagate it, as 
the average grower has not the special 
facilities re({uired for this work. 

Choosing Varieties. 

As to varieties the grower must be 
guided by the market to which he ships, 
as popular taste varies. Every grower 
should keep records of the number of 
each variety he grows and also the daily 
cut and money value of them. By this 
means he can, at the end of the year, 
tell which variety is paying him, so that 
he can increase or decrease his plant- 
ings accordingly. I cannot emphasize 
too strongly the importance of doing 
this. Unless a grower does this, he is 
only guessing at his results. 

A grower must adapt himself to his 
own local condition of soil and green- 
houses. Many establishments have 
houses in which roses cannot be grown 
profitably in the winter. If these are 
used for summer roses and rested in the 
winter months, they will be found to be 
profitable indeed if judgment is used 
in selecting the varieties grown. 

Ventilation. 

Hoses v;iry so as to temperature re- 
quirements that only general rules can 
1)0 given as to tem})erature. Sudden 
changes should l)e avoided. Night tem- 
peratures of 58 to (50 degrees, with no 
ventilation, suit the general run of 
roses; with ventilation on, 62 to 68 de- 
grees, varying to correspond with the 
amount of ventilation used. On days 
when you have watered heavily or 
syringed, keep a little on the warm' side. 
On (Jays when the houses are on the dry 
side, they are better a little cooler. 

Temperature for cloudy days should 
be 66 to 70 degrees, sunny days 72 to 
78 degrees, varying between these as 
houses are wet or dry, or depending on 
outside weather conditions. 

In watering, the grower must be 
guided chiefly by the condition of his 
I)lants, also by his soil, but as a gen- 
eral rule, if the plants are full of 
growth and healthy, in a soil where the 
drainage is good, more h;irm is usually 
done by not enough water than too 
much. 

Preventing Diseases. 

The common diseases of roses can 
best be prevented by proper culture, 
assisted, in case of black spot, by spray-

properly used, will control. Thrips is 
best controlled by s])raying the tops of

as soon as possible, and do not use the

vented by sterilizing the soil, or by 
growing grafted plants, or by not using 
upland soil l)ut only lowland soil, which 
is under water for several weeks each 
year, as this will be found free of it. 

Feeding the Plants. 

Where it can be had, nianlire water 
is one of the best methods of feeding, 
as plants can actually be given just 
what food they need. Only one pre- 
caution is to be observed. Never water 
dry plants with it. Water these first 
with clear water. 

Let each grower take a bench 150 feet 
long, divided into six ecjual parts, and 
use a different mixture of fertilizer 
on each part, keeping an accurate rec- 
ord of production. He will then in a 
year or two acquire a practical knowl- 
edge of his soil requirements as to fer- 
tilizer, which he can get in no other 
way than by trying out all the standard 
commercial fertilizers, as often a high- 
priced mhtorial, when judged by re- 
sults, is much the cheapest. 

An Efficient Bange. 

A modern icebox is a necessary ad- 
junct to a rose range, as there is no use 
in growing good stock if you cannot 
take proper care of it afterwards. In 



tion companies have experts who will be 
glad to call and suggest such changes 
as are needed. 

It seems a pity that so many fine 
ranges of glass are allowed to go to 
rack and ruin for want of painting and 
needed repairs. You can grow good 
roses in a tumble-down house, but the 
chances are much against you and the 
cost is prohibitive. On the other hand, 
I have houses that are 26 years old, 
iron-frame houses that are practically 
as good today as when built, and ready 
for another twenty-six. It has been my 
observation in traveling about that 
where houses are neglected and kept 
slovenly, the stock usually matches, but 
in a well kept place stock is usually ill 
keeping with the surroundings. 

In conclusion, the modern rose range, 
with its big iron-framers, efficient heat- 
ing system and economical working con- 
ditions, has a big advantage over the 
old-fashioned range, where conditions 
are usually the reverse. So it behooves 
a grower who would keep up to date and 
meet this competition, to remodel his 
jilant and bring it in line with modern 
conditions. lie can get some good ideas 
by visiting some of these modern places 
and by consulting the trouble men of 
the greenhouse building concerns. 

By all means, give our young men a 
thorough commercial education. This, 
combined with the practical knowledge 
gained by experience, will equip them 
for the keener competition which they 
will have to face.

NEW YORK. 



The Market. 

The week following Easter was, as 
usual, a dull one in the cut flower mar- 
ket. Despite the Easter cut of every- 
thing there was, all the week, a rather 
heavy supply of flowers, with a light 
demand. Those of the public who were 
supplied with Easter-flowering plants 
found them sufficient for the week; con- 
sequently it was hard to move post- 
Easter arrivals of cut flowers. This 
condition, of course, sent prices down- 
ward, and a recovery has not yet been 
possible. 

Bulbous stock is much lighter in sup- 
ply, and in some items is scarce. April 
2 there were not enough narcissi to meet 
even the moderate demand, and there 
was much scouting around to pick up 
jonquils and daffodils to fill orders for 
spring flowers. Paper White narcissi 
seem to have passed even this early in 
the season. In tulips Couronne d'Or 
overtop the supply, and there are rather 
more of thiem than the market can ab- 
sorb. April 2 the supply of all kinds 
of flowers was greatly in excess of the 
demand, and to prevent a carry-over to 
Monday concessions in prices were com- 
mon to effect a clean-up. 

Large quantities of forsythia boughs 
are coming in, and they are taken freely 
for purposes of store and window deco- 
ration. 

Eoses are plentiful and their move- 
ment is slow. While American Beauty 
is not abundant, sales drag and specials 
have toppled to a range of $25 to $40 
per hundred. Hybrid teas are in heavy 
supply and prices are down to the lowest 
range touched for some time. Bright 
weather has brought on an immense 
crop, difficult to handle with profit to 
the growers. The new rose, Mme. But- 
terfly, is making many friends, and 
from its regular coloring bids fair to 
oust the parent, Ophelia, from its posi- 
tion as the leading light pink variety. 

Carnations are plentiful, but with a 
heavy supply of roses in the market 
prices are affected. For some days the 
top price was $4 per hundred, with Lad- 
die and selected Mrs. C. W. Ward bring- 
ing the usual advances. 

Cattlcyas continue scarce, but plen- 
tiful enough for the demand, which is 
small. Arrivals are almost wholly of 
Mossia? and Sehroedera?, the former the 
largest and best. Spray orchids are 
rather more plentiful, and meet with 
a slow movement. Gardenias are in ex- 
cess of the demand, and clearances are 
difficult even with concessions in price. 

Easter lilies arc in heavy supply and, 
the demand for them for funeral work 
being light, much stock is left over day 
by day. Lilies of the valley are plenti- 
ful and meet with slow sales. 

Sweet peas are overabundant and the 
disposition of them profitably seems to 
be a daily problem. Some of the grow- 
ers are going off crop with them, judg- 
ing from the amount of haulm cut to 
lengthen the sprays. Violets are show-

ing the effect of warm weather and 
prices are not really quotable. 

There is an abundance of miscel- 
laneous flowers, which move fairly well 
when prices permit their use for win- 
dow decoration. Snapdragons are in 
unusually heavy supply and are hard 
to clear. Yellow and white daisies, 
calendulas, some fine delphiniums, 
French marigolds, stocks, gladioli, pan- 
sies, wallflowers, mignonette, iris in va- 
riety, myosotis, camellias, alyssum, 
cornflowers, frjeesias and English 
daisies about make up the list of avail- 
able flowers. Southern-grown narcissi 
are coming in, of fairly good quality. 

Various Notes. 

The heavy frosts of Tuesday and 
Wednesday nights, March 29 and 30, 
did an immense amount of damage to 
fruits and other outside material,, ow- 
ing to the midsummer weather experi- 
enced for several days preceding. In 
New Jersey on the latter night the ther- 
mometer went down to 24 degrees, while 
the day shade temperature of March 28 
was over 80 degrees. 

Temperatures do not seem to have 
.affected the tulip bods in City Hall 
square, which are now bursting into 
bloom. 

It is understood that the greenhouses 
on the estate of Adolph Lewisohn, Ards- 
ley, N. Y., are being converted for com- 
mercial purposes, carnations chiefly to 
be grown. This will be sad news for the 
many who have appreciated the numer- 
ous excellent exhibits from these green- 
houses seen at our flower shows, which, 
of course, under the new arrangement 
will be no longer possible. This estab- 
lishment alone staged exhibits on fifty- 
eight entries at the recent international 
flower show. 

Late reports show that the Easter 
business was exceptionally good all 
around. Plants cleaned up well, and 
cut flowers met a better demand than 
usual. Not only in New York city, but 
in the surrounding towns a lively de- 
mand for plants and flowers was ex- 



perienced. Some of the timid ones who 
were pessimistic because they did not 
have a book full of orders a week ahead 
of the day and consequently cut down 
their plant orders are now bemoaning 
a lost opportunity to double the busi- 
ness they actually did. Pot lilies were 
in abnormal demand, and the supply 
was insufficient. Some of the bench lily 
growers dug up plants in an effort to 
meet some of the shortage. 

Thomas Eoland, president of the S. 
A. F., was a visitor April 1 and made 
a lengthy call upon Secretary Young at 
administration headquarters. 

The usual display of magnolia bloom 
in suburban gardens will be missed this 
year, the frosts having entirely killed 
the expanding blooms of the Soulan- 
geana variety, the first to bloom. Len- 
nei, which blooms later, was little 
harmed, but trees of this variety here- 
abouts are not numerous. 

The next meeting of the New York 
Florists' Club will be held at the En- 
gineering Societies' building, Monday 
evening, April 11. Important business 
is to be transacted, and a report on the 
recent flower show is to be presented.

latter part of May, to visit and inspect 
the largest collection of Darwin and

this country. Through cooperation with 
the General Bulb Growers' Society, at 
Haarlem, Holland, a collection of over 
17,500 tulips, the gift of that organiza- 
tion, was planted last fall in the New 
York Horticultural Gardens, located 
just opposite Fordham hospital on the 
southern boulevard. Another collection 
at the same place, the gift of John 



Scheepers, Inc., contains over 5,400 
bulbs. In the two collections there are 
about 23,000 bulbs and 241 kinds. An- 
other collections, more comprehensive in 
the types represented, is located in the 
beds in the court of conservatory range 
1. Here there are over 9,800 bulbs in 
the seven beds and 167 kinds. The com- 
bined display represents a total of over 
32,800 bulbs and, allowing for duplica- 
tion, 325 kinds. 



IRISES IN CALIFORNIA. 

In the accompanying illustration are 
shown a field of Spanish iris and one of 
Iris tingitana grown for bulbs by the 
H. A. Hyde Co., Watsonville, Cal, H. A. 
Hyde has planted over one-third of a 
million bulbs of this stock and reports 
that the plants are coming along in fine 
style. The iris looms more and more 
important each year as a cut flower and 
7nany growers may be interested in Mr. 
Hyde's venture. 

The iris finds a suitable environment 
more readily, perhaps, in California 
than in most other parts of the country. 
Coming, as most of the varieties of this 
genus originally did, from countries bor- 
dering on the Mediterranean, the iris 
requires a climate that is warm and dry 
in summer. 

Planted out in the early fall, the 
Spanish irises make an early start and 
produce leaves which persist through- 
out the winter and are seldom injured 
in that part of the country. In May 
and June the blooms appear and are 
distinctively bright and colorful. This 
particular type of iris, according to 
some authorities, does best in ground in- 
clining to moisture, although the stems 
will rot if subjected to stagnant water. 
The nature of the soil does not seem to 
affect the growth, as plants in heavy 
soil do as well as those in light soil.

RESULTS OF ADVERTISING. 



I All Industries Wat€h Florists. 

; Tliori" is ;iii old sayiii>j, "Blow your 
.own horn, or no one will blow it for 
you." Recent issues of The Kevicw 
have called attention to the fact that 
the florists liave started other industries 
to talking about them, first, the Confec- 
tioners' .Journal, then the New York 
Garment News. Tliese arc only two in- 
stances; there are many similar ones. 
This is absolutely free advertising of 
the best kind. The question the writer 
, wants to ask is, what is the reason for 
. these two publications talking about our 
■ industry? We all know that the Confec- 
itioners' Journal would hardly go out of 
its way to give its trade's closest com- 
; petitors the advantage of free adver- 
, tising. The florist has been blowing his 
own horn in the use of the slogan, ''Ray 
It with Flowers. ' ' lie has been blowing 
it so hard that it is beginning to attract 
the attention of others, and is not this 
just the primary motive in advertising.' 
' It was only recently that a moving 
picture film came to a certain city for a 
week's engagement. It opened Monday 
evening; Wednesday evening a promi- 
• nent clergyman went to see it, mu\ diir 
■ing tlie second act he left the house in 
disgust. The clergyman then went to the 
trouble of calling up the leading news- 
paper of the city and registering a pro 
test. This ])aper, ])efore printing his 
protest, called up the manager of the 
theater, informed him of the report 
given regarding the film and the source 
from which it had been received, and 
asked if he had any comments he would 
like to add. Tlie manager rculied that 
he had none, but asked the paper to giv(> 
the minister's protest as much space 
and as prominent a ))osition as possible. 
This the newspajier did. What was th<- 
result of this protest? Instead of run- 
ning one week, the house turned jieoplc 
away for six weeks, with two shows a 
day. This was just a case of getting 
other ]>eo))le talking about you. Had 
that show de]iended ii])on its own advor- 
tLsing it would not have gone over its 
one week's engagement. 

Free Advertising Appreciated. 

The ]ioint I wish to enii)Iiasizc is tli:it 
wliile the florist has been blowing his 
own horn, it looks to the writer as 
though he was getting short of wind. 
The writer has seen " Say It with Flow- 
ers " used as much outside the trade as 
he has seen it in florists' paid advei- 
tisements. It has l)een frequently em 
ployed by cartoonists, and in the humnr- 
ous parts of the daily papers. 

This is all the best sort of publicity. 
It would be impossible to pay these men 
for using the slogan in their cartoons. 
Then, did you ever stop to think that a 
thing must have a prominent place in 
the mind of the public before such per- 
sons will use it? With the compara- 
tivclv small nmount of publicity this 
slogan has had, it is known throughout 
the world. 

Onlv recently I was talking with a 
live publicity man, who said that if some 



l)rivate corporation had such a slogan 
and had it copyrighted, it woul«l be on 
every telegra]>h pole from New York to 
San Francisco. Yet this valuable asset 
of ours is lying almost idle. 

Is the Business Orowing Too Fast? 

In a con\ersation with a florist not 
long ago, we were talking about adver- 
tising. This florist said he could see no 
use in paying out moaey for advertising 
when the florists all over the country 
(•ould at that time hardly supply the 
demand. Now, if this industry has 
reached its limit, then this is certainly 
a good argument. But this is not the 
case; the florists' business is still in its 
infancy. We need only look " gt its 
growth during the last twenty-five 
years; during the last five of t3iem its 
growth has been almosfaB much as dur-" 
ing the other twenty. . If this is not due 
to publicity, then what' has caused it? 
But our industry is going to grow much 
larger than it is today; it has been 
demonstrated time and again that flow- 
ers have now reached" a place in the 
lives of the American people where they 
are a necessity. We need only go back 
a few years to the time of the war, when 
people were economizing in every con- 
ceivable thing. They were wearing 
clothing until it was threadbare.' Why, 
wo were even short on rations because 



of high prices! Yet during that period 
the florists were doing more business 
than they had ever done before. 

Now, let us be honest with ourselves. 
There is a scriptural quotation which 
says, "Know the truth and the truth 
shall make you free." Let us look for 
a moment at the cause of the shortage 
of stock and consequent high prices that 
liavo been occurring from time to time 
of late. Is the business outgrowing 
those who are now engaged in it? Are 
we afraid to go out and tell the public 
we have the greatest commodity on 
earth, for fear if we do the public will 
demand it and we shall not be able to 
suppl}' it ? Let us remember that the eyes 
of the commercial world are upon our 
. industry. The small amount of advertis- 
ing we have already done is responsible 
for this. If Ave cannot meet this demand 
that has been created, then other in- 
terests are going to walk in and give the 
l)ublic what they want. The business 
world is awake to the fact that florists 
have a good proposition. 

We have just been through an Easter 
season; more flowers were sold this year 
than ever before. I found stores closed 
to the public as early as 2 o'clock the 
Saturday afternoon preceding Easter. I 
am not condemhrng these stores for clos- 
ing, for what else were they to dof 
Plants were all sold and cut flowers all 
ordered. I heard people begging for 
stock for corsage work, when there was 
none to be had. A further point I wish 
to make is, the growers knew Easter was 
• coming and that there would be a hig 
demand, but from appearances the de- 
mand went beyond their expectations, or 
else "someone was asleep at the 
switch." Tate.

WHAT FIFTY YEARS WILL DO. 



The Growth of the Coombs. 

.\o doubt, florists who plan to attend 
the convention of the American Carna- 
tion Society at Hartford, Conn., next 
.laTiuaiv, will lie interested to know 
more of the famous firm with which the 
vice-i)resid('nt of the society, N. C. 
Osborn, is connected. The firm of 
Coombs the Florist is one of the largest 
.■ind best known in New England. Tliere 
;n'(> two stores at Hartford conducted 
under the name of Coombs, Ijcading 
Florist, and one, opened in November, 
li)2(t, at New Haven, called Coombs' 
Flower Shop. The New Haven Register 
III March 2~) contained an interesting 
history of the Coombs growth and also 
showed portiaits of John and .lose]ili 
J' Coombs. 

The Coombs business was established 
in. Hartford more than fifty years ago 
by John Coombs with one small green- 
ho)ise on Benton street, from which Mr. 
Coombs did all his retailing until about 
twenty years later, when he opened his 
first store, at Main and Grove streets. 
His love for his flowers and his work 
soon became noted and in ten years the 
business had so outgrown the quarters 
that a larger store had to be secured. 
This was opened in the Universalist 
IniiMing, which gave way for, the erec- 



tion of the Travelers' block in 1912, ne- 
cessitating the removal of the Coombs 
establishment to the Hartford Trust 
Co. building. Even larger quarters were 
finally located at 741 Main street, the 
present situation. That didn't meet re- 
quirements; so, in 1915, a second store 
was opened in the Hotel Garde building 
at ,1()4 Asylum street under the manage- 
ment of V. H. Olmstead, who has bee« 
with the Coombs organization for thirty 
years. The second store was remodeled 
in 1919 and now presents one of the 
handsomest establishment.s in the state. 

Of course the little greenhouse didn't 
keep up with the demands of the stores 
and an entirely new range was erected 
on South street and is one of the best 
equipped and most up-to-date in the 
country. It was especially designed for 
the growing of roses, carnations and 
sweet peas, and placed under the direc- 
tion of N. C. Osborn. At present about 
10,000 roses and 20,000 carnations are 
grown annually in these greenhouses. 
The original Benton street range is still 
under the direction of the founder, John 
Coombs, who is yet active in his work 
.ind takes as much pleasure in his 
blooms as he did the day he started. 

Coombs has won national recognition 
for the quality of the carnations grown. 
The first exhibit at the Massachusetts 
Horticultural Society exhibition in Bos- 
ton won first prize. In January of this

four first prizes and one second priz.c 
•were awarded the Coombs displays. 

The latest development of the Coonib;s 
business was the opening of Coombs 
Flower Shop at 978 Chapel street, New 
Haven, Conn. The opening was last 
November, when 10,000 visitors viewed 
the attractive store and display. More 
than 6,000 chrysanthemums were given 
away to the fortunate early callers. 
Music added to the pleasure of the occa- 
sion. The Coombs Flower Shop at 
New Haven is under the management of 
Mrs. Sara Coombs Martin, who was as- 
sociated with the Coombs Hartford 
stores for fifteen years before her mar- 
riage and retirement four years ago, 
when sh^ieame to New Haven. In four 
months she has developed a large busi-

THE NEW ROSE ANNUAL. 

["The American Rose Aiiuiml: the W2l Ye.ir- 
book of liose Progress," edited for the American 
Uose Society Ijy J. Horace McFariand. Contains 
192 pages of text, besides seventeen pages of 
fine lialf-tone illustrations and one colored plate. 
Supplied to all members of the society whose 
clues are pftid for the cnirent year. To secure 
additional copies or further information, address 
the secretary, .Tohn t'. Wisler, GOd Finance 
Ituilding, I'hiladelphia, Pa.] 

The American Rose Annual is how gen- 
erally recognized as being pretty nearly 
the, ideal book for its purpose. One 
of its chief merits — a merit not always 
fully appreciated^ — is the fact that it is 
about equally interesting and valuable 
to both classes of rosarians, professional 
and amateur. Since the membership of 
the American Eose Society consists of 
both commercial and private growers, it 
U eminently projier that the subject mat 
tPi of tlie society's annual should be, as 
it is, of such a nature as to -meet tlit> 
wishea of both groups of readers. It 
'5.'^emaJ>erfectly clear that the contents 
. of th<e-^ook, like the membership of tlic 
^fiflcieHi^ should foe partly commercial in 
charaeter and partly ajnntcur — no, not 
afnateurish.' 

. But a point that may not be so clearly 
understood by everyone is this, that th? 
book, so planned, not only treats botli 
bodies of it^ readers, jirofessional and 
nonprofessional growers, with absolute 
inii)artiality;" it also renders to alj of 
them a service that otherwise miglit be 
impossible. Articles written by well in- 
formed amateurs, and intended primarily 
for the pertisal of amateurs, frequentrv 
»*upply a peculiarly lielpful sort of en- 
lightenment for trade growers. And 
amateurs may often derive the same 



unique sort of benefit from a study ot 
commercial growers' views. Thus a 
judiciously arranged book, like this an- 
nual, serves as a means of bringing the 
amateur and the professional grower 
into closer acquaintance, to the un- 
doubted advantage of both. 

The present issue of the annual, the 
sixth in the series, fully maintains the 
high standard established by its predc 
cessors. The editor of the book, in draw- 
ing attention to some of its most note- 
worthy features, mentions particularly 
its description of the world's new roses, 
the new-rose reviews by E. G. Hill and 
Courtney Page and the several dis- 
courses on the handling of commercial 
roses, written by "leaders in that most 
important pursuit." Among these com- 
mercial leaders who contributed articles 
to the book are Robert Pyle, S. S. Pen- 
nock, Wallace R. Pierson, Charles H. 
Totty, W. J. Keimel, Thomas Roland 
and — as already stated^E. G. Hill. 

Editor McFarland himself wrote for 
the volume two articles that challenge 
attention; thoy are entitled "Other Pos- 
sible Rose Stocks" and "What Roses 
Nursery Agents Sell. ' ' He also has con- 
ducted, in the pages of the book, an 
"editorial inquiry" on "How to Make 
Roses Grow" and "Rose Protection vs. 
the Rose-zone Map." Dr. W. "Van Fleet, 
(if tlie Fnited States Departiiient of Ag- 
riculture — what florist does not know 
about Dr. Van Fleet's achievements as 
a rose liybridizer ? — continues his "prog- 
ress-records," writing this time under 
the heading, "Rose Breeding in 1920 at 
Bell Experiment Plot." And many other 
noncommercial rosarians have aided in 
giving liigh quality to the book. 



Memphis, Teim.— Flowers were do 
natod by the Memphis Floral Co., the 
Idlewild Greenhouses, the Johnson Floral 
Co. and the Flower Shop, to be sold on

MOTT-LY MUSING^ 



K. V. B. Felthousen, Sehcuectaa.v, N. 
Y., recently rounded out his twentieth 
year at the postoffice stamp window, 
which was favorably commented upon by 
the local press. Between the acts, so to 
s])eak, a flourishing business has been 
worked up, whether it be a stock of 
geraniums for Memorial daj' or young 
chrysanthemums, in both of which 
the stani]) of good culture is seen. Mr. 
Felthousen humorously commented upon 
the fact that he is the first to see The 
Review upon its arrival at the postoffice. 
This may in some measure account for 

his success. 

• • • • 

"The sun had hardly set upon what 
was our finest Easter business," ob- 
served Henry Eberhardt, of the Rosen- 
dale Flower Shop, Schenectady, N. Y., 
"when we received a funeral order 
which compelled us, owing to our being 
entirely sold up, to scour the surrounding 
country for flowers. We roused Fred A. 
Danker, of Albany, out of bed at 11:30 
p. m. Sunday night, just as he had 
retired following the Easter rush. With 
his customary good nature he obtained 
a lantern and together we made a round. 
Finally we wound up with a supply that 
enabled us to furnish a number of pieces, 
including a blanket of orchids, roses and 
valley, the effort of Walter Dunning." 

• • • • 

"Paul's Scarlet Climber rose and 
Hydrangea Trophee were real troj)hies 
with us this Easter," observed F. A. 
Danker, Albany, N. Y. "They headed 
the list in our sales and were mascots for 
what was the finest business in our 
experience. The elusive dollar did not 
purchase much florally, but was the basis 
and ranged up to a fiver, little beyond. 
Quality and less quantity counted. 
From inquiry among our neighbors we 
learn their experience was similar." 
Mr. Danker incidentally mentioned that 
Paul's Scarlet Climber sliould be propa- 
gated and grown in pots to insure 
blooming. He has a fine batch of young 
stock for future handling. 

• • • • 

Shin Suzuki, of the Nippon Nursery, 
Woodside, N. Y-, was overliear 1 advising 



a customer to buy lilies liberally this 
year, as they would probably be dearer 
next season. The drop from 50 cents to 
30 cents per bloom was an added incen- 
tive. The result proved the shrewdness 
of our worthy confrere. 

• • • • 

G. Mossebcrg, Flatbush, N. Y., had a 
fine lot of pot roses for Easter and at 
the same time he deplored missing a 
batch of hybrid perpetuals, which can 
be held back for Memorial day, an event 
already engaging the attention of both 
wholesale and retail grower. 

• • • • 

Fred W. Wagenfohr, Mount Vernon, 
N. Y., owing to forced removal just 
before Easter, was put about some, but, 
as he expressed it, "We were Johnny on 
the spot just next door and worked like 
Trojans to get straightened out and had 
fine results." His seed business is open- 
ing up well in the new store. 

• • • • 

Victor Dorvall, of Victor S. Dorvall & 
Sons, Woodside, N. Y., attributes the 
brisk Easter demand to the few warm 
days the week previous, when much 
bulbous stock suffered and but little re- 
covered or was aided by the later cool 
weather. Tlie perfect system of cold 
storage stood in good stead, so that 
though the late delivery meant a big 
rush at the end, the holiday trade fin- 
ished in a wind-up that satisfied every- 
one interested. 

• * • • 

August Buckholz, Woodside, N. Y., 
commented upon the many blind tulips 
and the excellence of narcissi and 
hyacinths, with a general total that 
excelled anything experienced in the last 

ten years. 

• • • • 

"How would vou feel," asks Charles 
Zeller, of Charles Zeller & Son, Flatbush, 
X. Y., "if a load of blooming plants 
were refused by your liest store customer 
early in the week on account of the fear 
that, owing to the warm spell, the stock 
would not hold up over Easter? This 
was an actual circ\imstance and we know 
of another grower who was not even so 
casilv liandlecl as onrselvcs. In our case. 



being a retailer as well as a grower, we 
disposed of everything salable. The 
cool weather preceding Easter day stiff- 
ened up the stock and helped hold prices 
firm and on a moderate level. " W. M. 

PUTTING PARK RANGE RIGHT. 

You recall the illustration on page 20 
of The Review for March 24. It pur- 
posed to show the greenhouses in the 
new park of that remarkable little town, 
of Hibbing, up in Minnesota. It didn't, 
however. It showed, instead, the green- 
houses on a large and well known estate 
in the east, far from Hibbing. A 
wrongly labeled photograph, sent by 
the contributor without realizing the 
error, was responsible for the wrong 
first impression, among Review readers, 
of the new greenhouses at Hibbing. 
Here is the right photograph of the Hib- 
bing houses which resulted from the en- 
terprise and effort of Superintendent of 
Parks Conrad B. Wolf and Mayor Vic- 
tor L. Power. 



GROWERS AT SPRINGFIELD. 

The St. Louis district branch of the . 
National Flower Growers' Association 
will meet at Springfield, 111., Tuesday, 
April 19. This meeting is of great im- 
portance to all flower growers in this 
district, says the secretary, J. J. Beneke. 
The meeting will open promptly at 2 
o'clock. The excutive committee will 
meet at 1 o 'clock to transact such busi- 
ness as may come before it. W. J. 
Hembreiker, chairman of the entertain- 
ment committee, has arranged an inter- 
esting program. 

St. Louis and St. Louis county have 
promised a large representation. The 
party will leave St. Louis via the Chi- 
cago & Alton railroad 8:40 a. m., April 
19, arriving at Springfield at 11:25. 
Fare is $4.04 one wav. 



WASHINGTON, D. C. 



The Market. 

Easter business seemed to exceed that 
of all other years. 

Stock at the beginning of the week 
was plentiful, and it looked as if the 
market would be flooded for Easter. 
Sweet peas and lilies were especially 
plentiful, but by the night of March 
25, sweet peas were scarce and lilies 
were not to be had at all. American 
Beauties were plentiful, but the supply

was readily taken up. Short roses were 
scarce. 

The potted plants were exceptionally 
fine this year, especially the hydrangeas 
and the ramblers. Lilies were unsatis- 
factory this year, as there were so 
many soft blooms, which meant a great 
loss to several of the large local firms. 

Violets were in great demand, as 
usual, in spite of the fact that they 
were poor. 

Delphinium is now being offered in 
good quality. 

The two cold nights, during the week 
after Easter, practically destroyed all 
outdoor flowers. Spring blossoms, lilac 
and all the Japanese flowering trees 
were frozen. 

Various Notes. 

The Dupont Flower Shop reports an 
excellent Easter, with the exception of 
the sale of large plants and baskets. 

Mrs. Cooke was glad to say that she 
had received but one complaint on the 
enormous Easter business. 

George C. Shaffer sold more plants 
than ever before, and made a general 
clean-up on all stock. 

Gude Bros. Co. had a force of four- 
teen men making corsages from the 
morning of Saturday, March 26, until 
the noon of Easter Sunday. The tele- 
graph business exceeded that of all 
other years. Ernest F. Gude, son of Mr. 
and Mrs. William F. Gude, and Euth 
Baird were married at the First Re- 
formed church, March 23. G. A. E. 



DULUTH, MINN. 



The Market. 

Easter ))usiness was quite satisfjic- 
tory to all the Duluth florists and stock 
was plentiful and of good quality. The 
Easter lilies were of better quality than 
in other years, as they were dwarf and 
well budded and the foliage was good. 
Almost everyone cleaned up everything 
with a flower on. Roses were in great 
demand and the stock was excellent. 
The varieties most in evidence were 
Columbia, Russell, Premier, Hoosier 
Beauty, Ophelia, Sunburst and "White 
Killarney. Carnations were plentiful 
and sold well. The quality was good. 
Spring flowers were in great demand. 
The good sellers were daffodils, tulips 
and freesias. Sweet peas, violets and 
valley were plentiful and were used 
mostly for corsage work. In potted 
plants there was everything anyone 
could desire— hydrangeas, genistas, tu- 
lips, daffodils, begonias, rambler roses, 
hyacinths, deutzias, azaleas and ciner- 
arias. 

Various Notes. 

J. J. Le Borious had a large business 
for Easter and made a good clean-up, 
both in cut flowers and potted plants. 
His hydrangeas were a little too late 
for the Easter trade and will be at 
their best in about two weeks. 

William Japp, of Lester Park, re- 
ports business exceptionally good. His 
chief output was flowering plants. 

The Alpha Florist made a good show- 
ing of Easter plants, including some 
fine azaleas of the narcissiflora type. 

With the Duluth Floral Co., business 
was (juite good. It had a large selec- 
tion of flowering plants and cut flowers 
and roj)orts a large out-of-town busi- 
ness. This firm had an unusual run of 
funeral work during Easter week 
which kept the staff working-late hours! 




ADAM GRAHAM. 

ADAM GRAHAM deserven being called the "grand old nuiu of tlie Cleveland 
trade." He was born in Scotland eighty years ago jind canie to this country 
when he was but 10 years of age.' At ir) he first engaged in the trade with the 
late Alexander Craig, the father of Robert Craig, at Philadelphia. It was not 
long before he showed his proficiency and was sent to Cleveland to lay out the 
estate of J. H. Wade. He held a position as gardener for Mr. Wade for seventeen 
years. When he left, it was to go into business for himself. This proved a profit- 
able venture and Mr. Graham became one of Cleveland's leading florists. A num- 
ber of years ago his son entered into partnership with him and the firm has been 
known as A. Graham & Son. Mr. Graham has held executive positions in a number 
of banking and industrial corporations in Cleveland. He has been president of 
and an active worker in the S. A. F. and has been president of the Cleveland 
Florists' Club. Of late years he has spent much time traveling with his daughters. 



Edward Kreiiuer was home from school 
for the week and was a good help at

mold, not too much decayed, and one- 
third loam, with a good dash of sharp 
sand, would be ideal. Do not attempt to 
grow them in pure loam, esjiecially if it 
is heavy. Lighten your soil and they 
will do far better. When moving into 
larger pots, one-fourth well decayed and 
j)ulvcrized cow or horse manure can be 
added, reducing the leaf-mold. Do not 
pot too firmly while the plants are small. 
All varieties need a temperature of 55 
to 60 degrees at night in winter to do 
well, and also some shade is necessary 
as the sun gets stronger. ('. W.

The potted plants were exceptionally 
fine this year, especially the hydrangeas 
and the ramblers. Lilies were unsatis- 
factory this year, as there were so 
many soft blooms, which meant a great 
loss to several of the large local firms. 

Violets were in great demand, as 
usual, in spite of the fact that they 
were poor. 

Delphinium is now being offered in 
good quality. 

The two cold nights, during the week 
after Easter, practically destroyed all 
outdoor flowers. Spring blossoms, lilac 
and all the Japanese flowering trees 
were frozen. 

Various Notes. 

The Dupont Flower Shop reports an 
excellent Easter, with the exception of 
the sale of large plants and baskets. 

Mrs. Cooke was glad to say that she 
had received but one complaint on the 
enormous Easter business. 

George G. Shaffer sold more plants 
than ever before, and made a general 
clean-up on all stock. 

Gude Bros. Co. had a force of four- 
teen men making corsages from the 
morning of Saturday, March 26, until 
the noon of Easter Sunday. The tele- 
graph business exceeded that of all 
other years. Ernest F. Gude, son of Mr. 
and Mrs. William F. Gude, and Ruth 
Baird wore married at the First Re- 
formed church, March 23. G. A. E. 



DULUTH, MINN. 



The Market. 

Easter business was quito satisfiio- 
tory to all the Duluth florists and stock 
was plentiful and of good quality. The 
Easter lilies were of better quality than 
in other years, as they were dwarf and 
well budded and the foliage was good. 
Almost everyone cleaned up everything 
with a flower on. Roses were in great 
demand and the stock was excellent. 
The varieties most in evidence were 
Columbia, Russell, Premier, Hoosier 
Beauty, Ophelia, Sunburst and White 
Killarney. Carnations were plentiful 
and sold well. The quality was good. 
Spring flowers were in great demand. 
The good sellers were daffodils, tulips 
and freesias. Sweet peas, violets and 
valley were plentiful and were used 
mostly for corsage work. In potted 
plants there was everything anyone 
could desire — hydrangeas, genistas, tu- 
lips, daffodils, begonias, rambler roses, 
hyacinths, deutzias, azaleas and ciner- 
arias. 

Various Notes. 

J. .1. Ijc Rorious had a large business 
for Easter and made a good clean-up, 
both in cut flowers and potted plants. 
His hydrangeas were a little too late 
tor till' KastiT trade and will be at 
tlicir best in about two weeks. 

\Villi;mi .lapj), of Lester Park, re- 
jK)rts Imsincss exceptionally good. His

Till' Alpha Florist made a good show- 
ing of Kaster i)lants, including some 
tinr a/.ali'as of tlu? narcissiflora type. 

With the Diiiutlt Floral Co., business 
was i|iiil<' good. It had a large selec 
tion of lliiwfriiig plants and cut flowers 
and ri'jiorts a large out-of-town l»usi- 
nesK. This firm had an unusual run of 
funeral work during Knster week, 
which kept the staff working late hours.

ADAM GRAHAM. 

ADAM GRAHAM deserves being called the "grand old man of the Cleveland 
trade." He was born in Scotland eighty years ago and came to this country 
when he was but 10 years of age. ' At 15 he first engaged in the trade with the 
late Alexander Craig, the father of Robert Craig, at Philadelphia. It was not 
long before he showed his proficiency and was sent to Cleveland to lay out the 
estate of J. H. Wade. He held a position as gardener for Mr. Wade for seventeen 
years. Wlien he left, it was to go into business for himself. This proved a profit- 
able venture and Mr. Graham became one of Cleveland's leading florists. A num- 
ber of years ago his son entered into partnership with him and the firm has been 
known as A. Graham & Son. Mr. Graham has held executive positions in a number 
of banking and industrial corporations in Cleveland. He has been i)resident of 
and an active worker in the S. A. F. and has been president of the Cleveland 
Florists' Club. Of late years he has spent much time traveling with his daughters. 



Edward Kreinier was home from school

BEGONIAS DOING BADLY. 

I want some information on how to 
grow begonias. I have some Lorraine,

they are all standing still and are dis

mold, not too much decayed, and one- 
third loam, with a good dash of sharp 
sand, would be ideal. Do not attempt to 
grow them in pure loam, esjiecially if it 
is heavy. Lighten your soil and they 
will do far better. When moving into 
larger pots, one-fourth well decayed and 
I)ulverized cow or horse manure can be 
added, reducing the leaf-mold. Do not 
pot too firmly while the plants are small. 
All varieties need a temperature of 55 
to 60 degrees at night in winter to do 
well, and also some shade is necessary 
as the sun gets stronger. ('. W.

RESULTS. 

We give them. You get them. 

We both have them. 

A coi.i) -wave, not so disastrous in the 
north, ha« ruined much outdoor stock 
in the south. 

Once ag&in are come tlie days when 
cash counts. The florist wlio is able to 
put uf) the cash is the one who gets the 
big bargains now. 

Competition in service is becoming as 
keen as competition in prices. It has 
not the disastrous effects upon ]irofits 
that result from the latter. 

It is easi(!r and cheaper to kce]> an old 
customer than to make a new one. There- 
fore, treat nil who do business with you 
with courtesy and fairness. 

The Classified plant andsnpply ads in 
this issue of The Review again constitute 
a record. No previous edition, ever has 
carried so many or so great a variety. 

It will keep the florists hustling to 
get rrady enough stock for Memorial 
day business. A good demand is cer- 
tain. An adequate su])idy is far from 
certain. 

TuEiiE was an unusually good Easter 
business everywhere; more people than 
ever before had flowers that day. The 
reaction of the few days following was 
nothing more than we must exj>ect just 
after we liave fully stocked all our cus- 
tomers. 

Al)VEkTi.si\<; never demonstrated its 
worth so well as it did tliis Easter. Th(> 
results that now elate florists tlnougli- 
out the country were jiossible only l>e- 
cause everybody pushed hard, in the 
liope of overcoming the ajinthy that dis- 
mays other lines of business. Never 
before did florists use so nuich adver 
tising. Never before did they have, 
conditions considered, a holiilay so 
eminently successful. 

The brightest gleam tliat has ))ene 
trated the editorial sanctum in a long 
time is this: "We wish to state that we 
commeme April 1 with a complete re- 
organization of our shipjiing dejiarttneut 
on lines frecpiently laid down in the.eili- 
torial jiage of The Review." No de- 
partment of the greenhouse business 
needs more attention than this one. The 
lines of reorganization are simple and 
have often been mentioned here. May 
more heed them thus! 



A HANDSOME color jdatc has beeu 
issued by R. Vincent, .Jr., & Sons Co., 
White Marsh, Md., showing the Patrick 
O'Mara dahlia. 

Qi'.^LiTY is what we need more than 
increased quantity. Grow the best stock 
and you will be the leading florist in 
your neighborhood. 

The thoroughness with which florists 
cleamvl out all available stock for East- 
er is a matter of surprise to some in 
this line of business and a matter of 
envy to some in other lines. 

Prices have descended so low in the 
coal market for lack of even a small de 
mand that it is anprehended a few orders 
will send quotations up. It looks like 
a good time to fill up available storage 
space. 

From the way the Classified Ads are 
coming to The Review from florists in 
New York*, Pennsylvania and New Eng 
land it appears the trade in that sec 
tion must have restored production to 
pre-war quantity this season. 

During the war boom any man could 
make money; the difference was what 
they did with it. The florists who first 
paid their debts and saved what was left 
are on Easy street now, while the im- 
provident are about where they started, 
except that they have had a fine nm for 
their money. 

Max Scht.ino, whom n\ost florists 
have come to know, complains that he 
never gets a chance to sit down for a 
half hour at a time. "Business with us 
is brisk," he says. "Our advertising 
is bringing more and more results and, 
irrespective of conditions during the last 
few months, we somehow do not feel 
any decrease in business.'' The reason 
l)UHiness is so good witli Mr. Schling is 
that he doesn 't wait for it to come — he 
meets it at least fjalfway. It is good 
with anv other florist who does the same. 



"\ 



SXIPPOSE. 



Suppose every man, woman and child 
bought a pair of shoes for Easter. 

Suppose you were in the shoe busi- 
ness. 

IIow much shoe trade do you suppose 
you would have the few days after 
Easter? 



WHO HAS BORONIA SEEDS? 

Would some one of the numerous 
readers of The Review tell me where I 
could get seed of Poronia megastigma? 
T have looked through several cata- 
logues, hut fail to see it advertised in 
any of tliem. This is a plant which de- 
serves to be grown more extensively, if 
onlv for its lovelv perfume.

DANGER IN SLACK DEMAND. 

StatiMuents of an alarming nature are 
heginning to be heard in the soft coal 
trade resulting from adverse market re 
ports from the coal fields and various in- 
dustrial centers. Thousands of mines 
have not had orders for a pound of coal 
for two months, according to Coal Age, 
and with a general average of a bare 
two-days-a-week operation for the coun- 
try those fortified with some business 
are making little over three or four 
days a week. 

Proiluction has steadily dropped dur- 
ing fourteen weeks from more than 
2,000,000 tons a day to about half this 



figure because there is no demand for 
bituminous coal. That the country is 
drifting into another period of car 
shortage and high prices through im- 
provident buying by steam coal users 
is the fear generally expressed in many 
quarters. All that is needed, state some 
authorities, to bring on a repetition of 
coal trouble is for consumers to hold 
off thirty to sixty days longer and for 
business to pick up even moderately. 

"It is admittedly difficult to appraise 
the danger correctly in the situation," 
says one writer regarding the present 
market. "The only element in the 
problem that is definitely known is pro- 
duction. The item of greatest uncer- 
tainty is the country's requirement for 
coal for the next twelve months — that 
is, to what extent business will pick up. 
It can safely be said that the consumer 
with any certainty of coal requirements 
in the next twelve months who does not 
make provision through purchase, 
whether spot or colitract, for his coal 
and who does not at once begin accumu- 
lating it in his own storage yard is play- 
ing with fire." 



FLOWER GROWERS WANT FACTS. 

The National Flower Growers' Asso- 
ciation is endeavoring to compile data 
with a view to j^etting valuable informa- 
tion for dissemination among the flower 
growers of this country, pertaining to 
insurance protection and a simplified, 
uniform bookkeeping system, including 
ways to figure cost of production, depre- 
ciation, etc. Any answers to the fol- 
lowing inquiries mailed to the under- 
signed, at Edwardsville, 111., will be 
appreciated by those in charge of this 
work and will materially assist in get- 
ting some definite results: 

1. Do you carry insurance and, if so, 
what kind? Name the companies and 
rates paid. 

2. Explain in brief outline your sys- 
tem of bookkeeping and how you figure 
cost of production and depreciation. 

3. Please give such other information 
as in your opinion would assist mate- 
rially in the above work.

A BUSY SEASON. 



"That the trade is enjoying another 
extremely active season is shown by the 
letters which reach The Review. The 
activity seems to be general, all over 
the country, east as well as west, for 
The Review is steadily advancing as 
an advertising medium for the florists 
of the east. Ijike this: 

Two insertions would Iiavp lippii siiffloicnt to 
luive cipiined up on our stock, luid then some. 
T.Tlk nliont results! We didn't get results, we 
had a l;indsli<Ie of letters, nnd it sure hurts to 
return inone.v ;ih well iis to disappoint custom- 
ers. — C. L. Curry & Sons, Valencia, I'a., March 
.31, 1921. 

The ad recently placed with yon certainly 
cleaned up our surplus stock ipiickly. — Quality 
Flower Store & Greenhouse. Fort Smith. Ark , 
April 1, 1921. 

If you hear a man complain of the 
cost of advertising you can be pretty 
certain he spends a good bit of money 
elsewhere than in The Review.

Israel Quint. 

Israel Quint, who liad for nearly 
forty years been actively engaged in 
the gardening and florists' business at 
Roxbury, Mass., died early on Easter 
Sunday in his fifty-eighth year. For 
many years his double-decked wagon, 
horse-propelled, loaded with pansies, 
geraniums, cannas and other bedding 
as well as decorative house plants, was 
a feature about the city. In more re- 
cent years automobiles displaced the 
horses. The deceased was highly re- 
spected in the trade and always at- 
tended to business with exacting care. 
He leaves a widow, eight sons and three 
daughters. One son, Harry, is a well 
known retailer on Boylston street, Bos- 
ton. 

Mr. Quint was a member of the So- 
ciety of American Florists and the 
Foresters of America. Funeral services 
were held from his late residence, 125 
Walnut avenue, Roxbury, March 28, 
and were largely attended. Many in 
the trade were present and sent floral 
remembrances. W. N. C. 

Robert MacArthur. 

Robert MacArthur, one of the found- 
ers and, at one time, president of the 
New Jersey Horticultural Society, died 
at his home at Hoosick Falls, N. Y., Sat- 
urday, March 26. Mr. MacArthur was 
for several years in the florists' busi- 
ness at Orange, N. J. A year ago he was 
affected with a paralytic stroke and he 
liad been gradually failing in health 
since that time. He was born in Scot- 
land seventy-five years ago, and emi- 
grated from that country to Orange 
nearly fifty years ago. Twelve years 
ago he left that town and went to 
Hoosick Falls, where he assumed charge 
of a large estate. He leaves one daugh- 
ter, Miss Annie MacArthur, and throe 
sons, George, William and Ralph. 



PITTSBURGH, PA. 



The Market. 

Since the Easter rush is over, it has 
been learned from all the florists that 
the Easter business was the largest 
they have ever had. Ideal weather con- 
ditions prevailed and, no doubt, brought 
every person out. Every florist cleaned 
out all salable stock; in fact, the whole- 
sale houses, when they closed their 
doors Saturday evening, March 26, had 
little left outside Of a few white 
roses and tulips. Thursday morning be- 
fore Easter, the wholesalers refused to 
book any more orders for any item on 
their price list, with the exception of 
bulbous stock, and even that stock 
cleaned up well. 

It was one of the holid.Mvs when the 
complaints were scarce. Outside of a 
few complaints on violets, every florist 
has reported the stock better than ever 
before. 

Business during last week was ex- 
ceptionally good. The Monday follow- 
ing Easter was almost a cleanup day. 
The florists were all ready to replenish 
their stock early Monday morning. 

The rose cut last week was fair. The 
demand, however, found the cut practi- 
cally exhausted each evening. Premier, 



Columbia, Ophelia, Butterfly and White 
Killarney were the principal varieties 
in this market. 

The supply of carnations improved 
each day, although the demand con- 
tinued to clean up the market daily. 
The quality was exceptionally good and 
the prices were somewhat lower. 

Violets were unusually poor. There 
were few in this market last week. 
Tulips are about a thing of the past. 
Yellow daisies started to arrive in good 
shape. The quality was exceptionally 
fine — fine long stems and large flowers. 

Orchids were scarce at Easter time 
and those that were in the market last 
week were moved daily. Greens of all 
kinds moved out rapidly. The southern 
shipments of Asparagus plumosus 
helped out considerably in supplying 
the demand. 

Business so far this year proves that, 
with a little publicity, the public will 
buy flowers. As we all know, the ma- 
jority of businesses in this community 
and all over the country have suffered 
a depression. The majority of business 
people are complaining, but, in spite of 
all these conditions, the florists have 
just had their largest business in their 
history. A little advertising and fair 
prices and there is no limit to the flo- 
rists ' business. 

Various Notes. 

The Pittsburgh Cut Flower Co. is 
celebrating the forty-seventh anniver- 
sary of the entry of Fred Burki, presi- 
dent of the corporation, into the flo- 
rists' business. The members- of the 
corporation are looking forward to the 
golden jubilee of the company, which 
will be three years hence. 

William Faulkner, superintendent of 
the Allegheny cemetery, is confined to 
his bed with acute neuritis in his ankles 
and knees. He is unable to get on his 
feet at all and, it is reported, he will 
be confined to his bed for some time. 

Thursday, March 31, the Pittsburgh 
Cut Flower Co. hebra visiting day at 
its greenhouses, at Bakerstown, Pa. A 
party met at the city store of this 
establisliment at 11:00 a. m. Thursday 
morning. In spite of the inclement 
weather, there were 110 in the party. 
A car was chartered on the Butler Short 
Line, which conveyed the people to 
Bakerstown, and they were met with 
autonjobiles which took them to the 
range. Mr. Clarke presented the ladies 
with candy and chewing gum and the 
men with cigarettes, cigars and Pitts- 
burgh stogies. An orchestra furnished 
the crowd with sonu; music while en 
route to the plant. After an elaborate 
dinner, Mr. Kocher, superintendent and 
foreman, led the crowd through the 
greenhouses. A picture of the crowd 
was taken in one of the large carnation 
ranges and also at the tables while eat- 
ing. Considerable comment was made 
on the wonderful plantings and the 
order in which all houses were kept. 
After viewing all the greenhouses, the 
visitors returned to the office and were 
again presented with cigarettes, stogies 
and candy, after whicli they were con- 
veyed to the special car on tlie Butler 
Short Line, which brought them back 
to Pittsburgh. It rained jtractically 
all day, but the crowd seemed to enjoy 
this visit even though the weather was 
inclement. All the florists, represent- 
ing towns within a radius of 100 miles 
from Pittsburgh, showed their appre- 
ciation of the company's hospitality 
and expressed the hope that another 



visiting day would be arranged when 
the weather would be more agreeable. 
Many florists drove to the range and 
were kind enough to assist in conveying 
the florists from the street car at 
Bakerstown to the range. 

Last week the Pittsburgh Cut Flower 
Co. let a contract to the George Schenck 
Co., Butler, Pa., for $30,000, for the 
erection of a boiler house at Bakers- 
town. Three 350-horsepower Wickes 
boilers have been purchased and will 
be placed in the building when com- 
pleted. It has been stated that with 
this new equipment, the problem of 
heating the range has been solved: 
This new arrangement will centralize 
the power plant. H. .1. H. 



INDIANAPOLIS, IND. 



The Market. 

Tlie rose market was fairly brisk last 
week. A good supply came into the 
local market and met with a ready sale. 
Carnations were plentiful and the sup- 
ply was fairly well utilized. Some es- 
pecially good ones were available. 
Along with these, there were some 
short-stemmed ones. There were a great 
many jonquils sent into the market. 
Cut tulips were available, but were not 
in heavy supply. Calla lilies were fairly 
numerous, but Easter lilies were scarce. 

The Easter market cleaned up the 
supply of potted plants. A few ciner- 
arias were available.- The week, as 
usual when following Easter, was dull, 
but there was a pleasant surprise for 
the florists because there was no great 
inactivity noticeable. 

Various Notes. 

Bertermann Bros. Co. was busy last 
week with several decorations. This 
firm is cutting some good calla and Har- 
risii lilies. 

Mr. and Mrs. Glen Moore, of Hush- 
ville, have a new son. 

H. C. Heileman, of the M. Rice Co., 
Philadelphia, called on the trade last 
week. 

Roy Davis is now in the office of Ber- 
termann Bros. Co. E. E. T. 



CHICAGO. 



The Market. 



If the Easter week was one which 
afforded the trade unexpected cause for 
satisfaction, the subsequent one was ex- 
actly opposite; it was a keen disap- 
pointment to growers and wholesalers. 
Easter business made so fine a record 
that it gave rise to false hopes. In- 
stead of maintaining the pace, the 
slump was one of the worst ever experi- 
enced just after a holiday. Two causes 
are assigned: It often has been noted 
that after a notably big flower day, es- 
pecially what is called a "plant holi- 
day," business is slack for a few days, 
as flower buyers all are stocked up at 
the same time. This condition was un- 
usually general after Easter. It does 
not make so much difference, coming at 
a time when crops are going off, but last 
week tlie hiatus caught the market with 
a tremendous supply in nearly all lines, 
but especially of roses. Many growers 
who were on crop for St. Valentine's 
day came within a few days of liaving 
another full crop for Easter. Being just 
a little late, they came in during the 
time of lightest demana and, instead of

catching the best market, suffered se- 
verely because of the falling prices. 

Boses rarely have been finer than 
they were last week, or than they arc 
this week. Weather conditions have 
been ideal for the production of a big 
spring crop of splendid quality and bet- 
ter values never were offered. If you 



ask a grower or wholesaler he will tell 
you that business has been "punk," or 
"bum," or "rotten," or that there has 
been no business, which leads to the 
question as to what has become of the 
stock? Of course average prices were 
extremely low, but some portion of the 
public must have bought a good many 



roses in the last ten days, as the re- 
tailers carried away huge quantities. 

Nearly all other flowers were increas- 
ingly abundant last week, but roses sa 
dominated the market that other stock 
was eclipsed and suffered accordingly. 
Bulbous flowers perhaps furnish an ex- 
ception. The early tulips were nearly

finished at Easter and the supply of 
jonquils has fallen away rapidly. 
Freesia is gone. It has not been a good 
season for the bulb forcers, in spite of 
the good Easter, and most growers are 
glad to see the bulb stock's exit. Of 
course there will be Darwins for some 
weeks yet. Next season there is not 
likely to be so much bulbous stock in 
this market. Lower prices for the bulbs 
and a guaranty of blooming quality 
will be necessary to get the forcers to 
take hold strongly again. 

The spring crop of carnations is on at 
last; there are plenty, quality is good 
and prices are low. The supply of sweet 
peas has not increased so rapidly as has 
the supply of other flowers; having 
dropped a crop of buds in the last dark 
spell, it takes a little time for the peas 
to get under way again. There is a fair 
sale for them, in spite of the abundance 
of flowers, because violets have passed 
in the warm weather and peas arc al- 
most the only flowers available for cor- 
sages. Cattleyas are only moderately 
plentiful at from $1 to $1.50 per flower. 
There is a good supply of valley and it 
has been selling well because of the 
rush of weddings which frequently 
comes just after Easter. 

The trade already is looking forward 
to and planning for the next big flower 
day, Mothers' day. May 8. The gen- 
eral idea is that advertising and mod- 
erate prices will make it possible to sell 
everything in sight at that time. 

Mr. Hanson's Idea. 
It long has been the idea of the man- 
agers of the A L. Randall Co. that it is 
a weakness in the flower business that 
so small a variety of merchandise is 
offered to the public. As it seems a 
long, slow process to develop floral nov- 
elties of real worth, an effort has been 
made to develop resale merchandise 
suitable for display in flower stores. 
Working along tliis line, Arthur Hanson 
has fitted up a room on the third floor 
of the Lemoyne building, calling it the 
florists' gift shop. A large percentage 
of the novelties shown are useful in con- 
nection with lighting the home, includ- 
ing lanijis aiid shades of many kinds. It 
is brifiht and colorful, a. room in which 
every visitor pauses and finds soniethin}i; 
he would like to possess. It is Mr. Han- 
son 's belief that any florist who can 
provide a room ten to fifteen feet square 
for such a gift shop will find it a money- 
maker for him, just as this one is for 
the Randall Co. 

Various Notes. 

Why is George Asmus like the parrot 
in the story? You remember the parrot 
said he knew what the matter was with 

him — he talked too d n much. Well, 

that's what Mr. Asnius says is the 
trouble in his case, too. The speech- 
making he has done for publicity and 
the next national flower show brouglit 
on an attack of laryngitis, which lie 
neglected in its early stages, resulting 
in an almost total loss of voice. Mr. 
Asmus now pays a daily visit to a 
laryngologist and has liojies of an even- 
tual recovery. 

C. S. Claussen returned April 4, after 
having spent a considera1)lo part of the 
winter on the I'acific coast. 

Funeral work has been on the in- 
crease, with some large affairs calling 
for many flowers. The burial of Mrs. 
Tulliiian. whose body was brought home 
from California, brought out a fine dis- 
play of floral pieces April 4. Most of 
this work was of the choicest character. 




Supply has increased more rapidly than demand, due 

to Spring crops coniing on right after Easter, 

and prices have been hammered

although there were inevitably some 
sleeping cars in flowers and other de- 
signs of that type. 

Frank Schramm, "William Spandikow, 
Fred Stielow and Rudolph Ellsworth 
spent April 3 at Eichmond, Ind., look- 
ing over the famous places there. 

At Crystal Lake Frank Schramm is 
installing a coal conveyor capable of 
unloading a car in less than an hour. 
The concrete work has been finished 
and the arrival of the machine itself is 
awaited. When the installation is com- 
plete an invitation will be issued to 
growers to witness a demonstration. 
Mr. Schramm, who now has 65,000 feet 
of glass, believes every range of fair 
size will find it desirable soon to put in 
equipment of this character. 

W. C. Egan, of Highland Park, well 
known to the older generation of flo- 
rists, celebrated his eightieth birthday 
anniversary April 1. Some of the mem- 
bers of the Garden Club gave Mr. and 
Mrs. Egan a dinner at the Casino Club, 
among those present being W. N. Rudd, 
O. C. Simonds and Jens Jensen. 

T. E. Waters returned April 2 from n 
ton days' trip to Washington, Phila- 
delphia, New York and Boston, the time 
being spent mainly in observing the 
Easter trade. It was the first time in 
thirty-three years' connection with the 
trade that Mr. Waters had not been 
waiting on customers himself on the 
eve of Easter. 

Edward Meuret and family have re- 
turned from their winter's vacation in 
California. The former Park Eidge 
grower looks the picture of health and 
no doubt will be found back in tlie 
business again in the course of the next 
few months. 

The engagement is announced of Miss 
Anna Tonner and Louis Beattie. Miss 
Tonner is well known as one of the five 
Tonner sisters, the youngest of a large 
family of florists. She has been keep- 
ing the books for the Tonner firm in the 
Atlas block. The fortunate young man 
is a childhood playmate who has estab- 
lished himself in the candy business 
since he returned from Siberia, where 
he wore Uncle Sam's uniform. The 
wedding will take place before the 
month ends.

The notice of this week's Florists' 
Club's meeting contained four lengthy 
communications. Evidently the new 
broom is sweeping as in the proverb. 

The Chicago Flower Growers' Asso- 
ciation has its new big Union refrig- 
erator in operation in the shipping de- 
partment and Manager Klingsporn be- 



lieves it will quickly pay for itself 
through keeping stock in the best pos-

money.

The A. B. C. store looks like a con- 
servatory this week, a shipment of 
palms having been received from Eoy 
F. Wilcox & Co., Montebello, Cal. The 
retailers are much interested, as such 



fine plants have not been seen since the 
war. 

M. H. Levine, the New York ribbon 
merchant, is here this week. 



El Paso, Tex.— The Herald reporter 's 
account of an interesting visit to the

BOSTON. 

The Market. 

Business is never brisk after any 
holiday and the present year has proved 
no exception to this rule. Belated re 
ports on Easter trade all go to confirm 
the verdict given a week ago, that it 
equaled, if it did not surpass, that of 
any previous year. The weather has 
been somewhat cooler since Easter, and, 
with hard frosts on one or two days, 
this has prevented a greater accumula- 
tion of cut flowers. It has not been the 
best of weeks for business, but no one 
thought it would be. Therefore, dis- 
appointments were few. The higher- 
priced roses go slowly and the short- 
stems, especially white, are becoming 
overabundant. Carnations drag con- 
siderably. No fault has been found with 
the quality as yet. 

Violets have passed, but there is a 
glut of pansies and low prices rule on 
these. Sweet peas are less plentiful 
and clean up better than almost any 
other flowers. Marguerites are coming 
larger and with better stems. Victoria 
narcissus is now abundant. 

There are plenty of fine snapdragons. 
The best sell, but many are unsold and 
go to the rubbish barrel. It seems rather 
easy to overdo this useful flower. 
Calendulas are plentiful. Mignonette 
goes slowly. Bachelor's buttons move 
fairly well. Few tulips are seen in the 
market and neither hyacinths nor 
freesias seem to be wanted. 

For valley there is little demand and 
the cattlcyas coming in are more than 
ample to care for all orders. Some nice 
Gypsophila elegans is seen and sells

Boston's Big Spring Show. 

A large and attractive show is staged 
at Horticultural hall this week, the 
spring show of the Massachusetts Hor- 
ticultural Society and the annual exhi- 
bition of the American Rose Society 
being combined. The season has been 
such a forcing one that some exhibits 
usually seen here of grand quality are 
missing or scarce. These include cinera- 
rias, schizanthus, cyclamens and bulb- 
ous material. On the other hand, roses 
are numerous and good; so are orchids 
and azaleas, while acacias arc scarce. 

The rose garden of Thomas Roland, 
with its grass and gravel walks, beds 
of beautifully flowered bush roses and 
fences covered with climbers, is ex- 
tremely attractive. Another rose gar- 
den, not in competition, from the 
Breck-Robinson Nursery Co., ia also 
well done. The splendid orchid collec- 
tions of Albert C. Burrage, Beverly 
Farms; A. N. Cooley, Pittsfield; Julius 
Roehrs Co., Rutherford, N. J.; E. B. 
Dane, of Brookline, and others, contain 
a wealth of rare and choice material. 
The rose groups of the W. W. Edgar 
Co., F. E. Palmer and others are excel 
lent and the collection of Kurume 
azaleas, artistically arranged, from .T. 
S. Ames, is a feature of the show.

April 8, had to be postponed. 

Various Notes. 

Commencing April 2, Thomas F. Gal- 
vin, Sr., associated himself with his son, 
T. i\ Galvin, .Tr., in the retail florists' 
business at 226 Devonshire street, near 
the corner of Franklin street. Owing 
to changed conditions in the florists' 
business, Mr. Galvin decided that he 
could serve his many customers to much 
better advantage from this central lo- 
cation in the heart of the wholesale 
flower district, which enabled him at all 
times to obtain the pick of the market, 
and sell flowers at a distinct reduction 
in price. Forty years' experience in 
buying, selecting and arranging flowers 
for all occasions, added to the popu- 
larity of T. F. Galvin, Jr., and the fact 
that he had already built up a splendid 
business on Devonshire street, should 
make this one of the busiest flower 
marts in Boston and the writer cordially 
wishes it increased success. 

Announcement that Marcellus A. 
Patten, the noted carnation specialist, 
of Tewksbury, had sold out all interests 
there to his son, Harold J. Fatten, and 
had determined to make his home here- 
after at Lakeland, Fin., where he has 
owned a sjilendid cottage and fruit 
plantation for some years, interested 
local growers a great deal. Mr. Patten's 
elder son, Wilbur A. I'atten, also hopes 
to locate in Florida and may take up 
propagating or similar work for the 
United States government. M. A. Pat- 
ten, the founder of the carnation estab- 
lishment at Tewksbury, was born in 
Lowell, December 4, 184!), and after 
graduating from the high school there 
started to learn the florists' business 
with Wieland Bros., Cambridge, later 
going to W. C. Strong's, in Waban. In 
1890 he started in business at Lowell, 
on West Fourth street, under the title 
of Patten «& Co., remaining there nearly 
twenty years. He moved to Tewksbury 
■ji 1890. Mr. Patten is an active man

lishmeiit iind arc well grown there. 
Several good novelties originated there 
and at present the new white, Thomas 
C. Joy, is doing magnificently there 
and bids fair to outclass all other 
whites now on the market. 

March proved to be an abnormally 
warm month and gave us 375 degrees 
excess temperature over normal. The 
maximum temperature was 84 degrees, 
which broke all March records. A cold 
wave closely followed this and just 
failed to make a record. Fortunately, 
vegetation was not quite far enough 
advanced to suffer serious damage, 
March went out blustery, while April 
came in weeping copiously as if to make 
amends for March's vagaries. 

Daylight saving for a 5-month period 
starts in Massachusetts at the end of 
April. The measure passed the House 
and Senate by overwhelming majorities. 
The shortening from a 7 to a 5- 
month period was due to a wish to ap- 
pease a section of the agriculturists 
who still claim that daylight saving 
works serious harm to them, but the 
overwhelming sentiment of the state is 
for continued daylight saving. 

The death of Israel Quint is reported 
in the obituary column this week. 

James Wheeler, of Natick, cut 3,500 
Godfrey callas for the Easter trade. He 
is delighted with his new pink sport of 
Matchless carnation, which is similar 
to the one-time popular Winsor in color, 
and will plant the bulk of his establish- 
ment with it the coming season. 

Inquiries at the seed stores show that 
business is brisk, with hands working 
overtime to keep abreast of orders. 
Apart from seeds, the demand is heavy 
for gladioli, dahlias, roses and nursery 
stock of all kinds. 

At the store of the Beacon Florist, 
Mr. Eisemann says that Easter trade 
went far ahead of all expectations, 
plant trade especially being remark- 
ably heavy. 

The next meeting of the Gardeners' 
and Florists' Club will conic on the 
fourth Tuesday in April, the 26th, in- 
stead of April 19, aa the latter date is 
a state holiday. 

At the May exhibition of the Massa- 
chusetts Horticultural Society, Albert 
C. Burrage will make a noteworthy dis- 
play of native orchids, of which he is 
growing an entire houseful. A dis- 
play of this character should be not 
only a decided novelty but a great 
attraction. W. N. C. 



PHILADELPHIA. 



The Market, 

A change is expected after a holiday 
— when you have just dined you do not 
want dinner — yet a change so complete 
as that which occurred immediately 
after Easter was unexpected. There 
was business. Oh, yes, there was busi- 
ness. There were weddings and parties, 
in and out of town, that required much

to the flowers that came into the mar- 
ket. Their number was legion. Fairly 
good orders made no impression on 
them. They accumulated and prices fell. 
They kept on accumulating and prices 
continued falling. Bargain sales, spe-

and domestic, all helped. By Saturday

ROSES 



Roses have never been better, and during this 
month there will be a big supply of them. 

Russell is still the best of all the pink roses. 
For keeping and shipping qualities, Russell 
has no equal, and at the present moderate 
prices, every retail store can af?ord to buy 
them. 

Columbia, Premier and Shawyer are good 
pink roses and we have them in quantity. 

Hadley is the best in red. Plenty of all sizes 
from 12-inch stems to 40 inches. 

Beauties, mostly specials, 36 inches and over. 
Until the end of the season you can depend 
on us for good Beauties. 

Place your next rose orders with us. It is to 
your interest to take advantage of the splendid 
supply of roses. We offer you the kind of 
stock that will make money for you.

Roses were the principal sufferers, 
daffodils and carnations to a lesser ex- 
tent. The crop of roses was surpris- 
ingly large, the demand for them rather 



light. Premier was the worst sufferer. 
Orchids were the only flowers that were 
not plentiful. Cattleya Mossiae is the 
leading, probably the only, variety now 
offered. Valley is excellent; it proves 
good stock for the weddings. Sweet 
peas are less abundant. There are large

American Legion. 

There is an incident that occurred in 
the cut flower market just before Easter 
that was not reported. It was the fa- 
vorable reception given to the new rose, 
American Legion. The shortage of 
American Beauty gave Edward Reid 
the choice of disappointing his cus- 
tomers or sending them something else. 
He sent American Legion, marking 
them as such, and charging at the rate 
asked for medium Beauties. Mr. Reid 
was gratified at receiving a number of

Grower: Easter only

Retailer: Yes, but we must charge

Grower: Those ideas don't suit tlie 
increase in salaries and coal. 

Retailer, graciously: Ah well, the high 
prices are not entirely your fault; some- 
times we buy at a quarter and sell at a

Lily Hybridizing. 

(An informal snapshot by Alfreil M. 
Campbell.) 
''When I was down in Washington I 
went to see the work of Dr. (irifiitli in 
hybridizing lilies. I was so much in- 
terested in it that I got Joe Ross on 
the long distance telephone at Straf- 
ford. He went with me to see the lilies. 
They had flowered in fourteen months 
from the time of sowing the seed. Th(\ 
most that could be said against them 
was that they were uneven. Now, here 
you see the results of that visit. We 
have selected some fifty pots of lilies 
and are trying to produce seed to raise 
our own lily bulbs. The process of self- 
fertilization is interesting and requires 
care. The seed pod develops at the 
base of tlie flower when the flower 
shrivels. Each pod should contain two 
to three hundred seeds. You know they 
say that we may be at war with Japan 
in two years. Then we may want our 
own lilies. When I showed them to 
Mark Mills he said, 'Oh, yes,' it is all 
right if you want lily bulbs that will 
cost vou'$l each.' Do you think my 
10,000 lily bulbs will cost me $10,000? 
Not mucli. If I do go into it there will 
be no such expense." 

Possibilities. 

Emil H. (ieschick believes that a 
beneficial effect of the existing restric- 
tions on plant importations will be to 
throw each grower more on his own re- 
sources. Instead of having much of his 
stock grown for him abroad, he will 
have to grow it himself. This makes 
the difficulty of getting a good assort- 
ment of plants in bloom in time for 
Easter much geater than when so much 
of the stock was imported. The reward 
for the growers should consequently be 
greater. Mr. Geschick believes that the

The Market. 

The local trade made great prepara- 
tions for the Easter trade, and, with 
but a few exceptions, no one was dis- 
appointed. Though nearly all the fac- 
tories here are on part time, a goodly 
number of plants and cut flowers were 
disposed of. 

It was a hard matter to hold stock 
back this year, owing to the warm 
winter which we had. Especially was 
this true with Easter lilies. There was 
a large supply of these on hand the first 
of the week, but by March 27 they were 
completely cleaned up. 

All other bulbous stock was to be had 
in large quantities, such as hyacinths, 
tulips, daffodils, potted plants of 
bougainvilleas, roses, spiraeas, a few 
azaleas, primroses, ericas, cinerarias, 
genistas, and a host of others. 

In fact, the array of potted plants 
was varied and made a beautiful dis- 
play, arranged in fancy baskets and ham- 
pers and covered with paper covers. 
From all reports, the greatest sellers 
were bulbous stock in pans of various 
sizes. 

The windows of the downtown stores 
were beautifully decorated, consisting 
of the various arrangements of potted 
plants, in fancy containers, and cut 
flowers of all kinds. 

The prices of all lines were some- 
what lower than last year. All hands 
are getting ready for the spring sale 
of bedding plants, which will start as 
soon as the weather permits. Last 
week several frosts were reported, so 
it will probably be some time before 
there will be a brisk demand for bed- 
ding plants. 

Various Notes. 

Park Gardens has removed its flower 
shop from its old stand at 1038 Main 
street and is now located in the store 
formerly occupied by the New York 
Florists, at 1184 Main street. This will 
allow better facilities for handling the 
increasing business, as the new store is 
much larger than the old one. A fine 
lot of bulbous stock and other potted 
plants was seen here. Easter trade 
with them was most satisfactory. 

James Horan & Son report Easter 
trade quite good. Though plants ar- 
ranged in large baskets went slowly this 
year, the plants put up in containers 
to retail for $1 to $5 were good sellers. 
Fewer plants were grown by this firm 
this year; therefore, they had no 
trouble in cleaning up their entire 
stock. 

Julius Keck says he is making prepa- 
rations for a big sale of bedding plants 
this year. He is cutting some fine car- 
nations and snapdragons. Easter trade 
with him was good; the fine stock of 
plants was completely sold out. He is

John Reck & Son had the largest 
Easter trade in the history of the lirm. 
Owing to lower prices this year, a larger 
number of plants and otlier stockvS were 
sold than were sold a year ago. They 
maintained three temporary stores in 
connection with their regular store to 
handle the Easter trade. Now that 
Easter is over, they arc getting ready 
for the spring sales of liedding plants.

The Market. 

Easter business was as good as, or 
better than, ever before. The weather 
was ideal up to about 3 p. m. on Easter 
Sunday, when a storm came and the 
weather turned cold and brought a 
freezing temperature. Flowers and 
plants were equal to the demand in 
some stores, l)ut otliers report that they 
could liave sold many more if they 
could liave been obtained on sliort 
notice. 

Various Notes. 

Theodore Kucbler did a thriving 
business. He had a large supply of 
plants and cut flowers. 

The Lockye.'ir Floral Co. did a large 
business and would have sold more if 
the additional stock could have been 
obtained. M. II. Lockyear and his wife 
arrived home from Florida just in time 
to help with the rushing business.

CLEVELAND, O. 

The Market. 

The week after Easter found l)usiness 
extremely slow, with stock piling up 
considerably. By the end of the week 
the market" was quite flooded with all 
kinds of stock. Bulbous stock, such as 
daffodils, tulips and narcissi, predomi- 
nated, while carnations, roses, calen- 
dulas, etc., were a close second, with 
a sprinkling of niiniiiture roses, niyo- 
sotis and sweet peas. 

Most of the retailers rejiorted an ex 
ceptionally g()od Easter business, with 
a decided lull last week. There was no 
business, in fact, outside of funeral 
work and a few weddings. 

The weather here has l)een change- 
able, mostly quite warm, with an occa- 
sional rain and now and then a day of 
freezing ti'in]ierature, which probably 
has killed .(insiderable outdoor stock. 

Various Notes. 

George Taffel, of Schloss Bros., New 
York, was .a visitor. 

W. A. Potter has announced the ar- 
rival of 11 baby boy. _ _ 

Oscar Leistner was a recent visitor. 

The Florists' Club last week held its 
nionthlv meeting in conjunction with 
the committees for the national flower 
show. ^W. A. B. 

West Plains, Mo.— The destructive 
freeze which caus.-d great loss here 
March 29 killed tomato plants at the 
Cottage Greenhouse & Ozark Pansy Gar- 
dens, run by C. W. Harold & Son and 
there will probably be none for sale ex- 
cept to local customers. 



The sizes given here are carried in stock, in 
the popular MIST-QRAY and GREEN colors.

A PASSER'S PICK-UPS. 

The Heiss Co., Dayton, O., has just 
added another truck to the delivery 
equipment. It is a White truck and 
makes the third one in service. 

Easter Monday the new James 
theater, at Columbus, O., was opened. 
The opening was the grander because 
of the great number of flowers sent Mr. 
James, the owner. These consisted 
mostly of baskets of large sizes. The 
lobbies reminded onlookers of a flower 
show and the artistic arrangements 
were a credit to the florists of Colum- 



bus. A lady was heard to remark, 
"They surely did 'Say It with Flow- 
ers.' " 

Springfield, O., also contributed to the 
display at the James theater. C. P. 
Bruuner had several orders -which he 
transferred to his Columbus corre- 
spondent. 

Floyd Anderson, Xonia, O., is con- 
templating adding a new truck to his 
delivery equipment. This is becoming 
necessary on account of having three 
places to look after, the greenhouses at 
Jamestown and stores at Xenia arid 
Wilmington. Each place is operated in- 



dependently, the stores buying their 
plants, cut flowers, etc., from the green- 
houses. 

"We have the pleasure and privilege 
of entertaining from one to four flo- 
rists, particularly rose growers, daily," 
said Fred H. Lemon, of Richmond, Ind. 
"With the greenhouses of the E. G. 
Hill Co., the Joseph H. Hill Co. and 
Fred H. Lemon & Co., we do have 
something to show them, too." Vis- 
itors always find a welcome at Rich- 
mond and no doubt an inspiration as 
well, after visiting the above-named 
places.

PLAN A NATION-WIDE SHOW. 



California Nurserymen Meet. 

A further meeting of the California 
Association of Nurserymen was called 
for Mardi -JK by President Roy V. Wil- 
<'ox and held at the market of the 
American Florists' Association, on 
Winston street, Los Angeles. Among 
those ])resent were W. Rapp, president 
of the Pasadena Horticultural Associa- 
tion; I). W. Coolidge, Pasadena; W. 
Armacost, Albert Morris, F. R. Hills, 
J. D. Meriweather, Ontario; H. W. 
Kruckeberg, F. H. Howard, O. W. 
Howard, Roy F. Wilcox, H. N. Gage, 
C. Gutting, John C. Bodger, H. R. Rich- 
ards, Albert Goldenson, F. H. Allen, 
Krnest Braunton and Richard Letts. 
Mr. Letts, who was introduced by Dr. 
Houghton, is a member of an English 
seed firm and gave a short but inter- 
esting speech on conditions in England. 
Mr. Wilcox and Mr. Howard, of the 
executive committee, reported the 
progress that had been made with re- 
gard to the exhibition in the coming fall 
and announced that the permission of 
the park board had been obtained to 
liold the show in Exposition park. But 
more than this, the aid of the ])ark 
board and the chamber of commerce 
had been enlisted and would be a vahi- 
able help in making the exhibition a 
success. The executive committee aims 
to make this a nation-wide affair and 
not simply a Los Angeles or a California 
exhil)itioH. Promises of exhibits from 
nortliern firms and from firms as f.ar 
east as Cliicago have already ))een 
promised and wlien the exhibition com- 
mittee gets tiirougli with its work, there 
will, no doubt, lie a great Tuany of 
every lino connected with the florists', 
seed and nursery trades who will want 
to exhibit their lines. 

The large sunken garden in the park 
will be used as the exhibition ground 
and during the remainder of the spring 
and summer this will be j)lanted to 
various perennials, shrubs, annuals and 
other stock, so that it will be at its 
best in October. Many of the nursery- 
men who propose to exhiljit have ]irom- 
ised to leave behind their exhibits, 
wholly or in part, to be used as the 
park commissioners think fit for the 
beaut ification of the park after the 
show is over. Dahlia growers will do 
the same thing, reserving, however, the 
right to take away their rare seedlings 
jind novelties of which only small 
stocks are in existence. Funds will be 
forthcoming to keep a large staff of 
men at work during the whole season, 
laying out the lawns and walks and ar- 
ranging the j)ermanent exhibits. This 
ond of the business will l)e under the 
superintendency of O. W. Howard, who 
is at present working on the plans for 
it. PJflScicnt committees, all imbued 
witli the necessity of hard work, will 
Jiave all the v/ipious details in hand 



and there is no doubt that a unique and 
ejioch-marking show will be the result, 
it is worthy of note, too, tiiat the Pasa- 
dena Horticultural Society's show and 
jiossibly the Avocado Growers' Asso- 
ciation show will be-lield in conjunc- 
tion. H. R.'r. 



U^^^>^^^^^^^^*^<^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^'^^<^^^ 



worthy of remark that a few days be- 
fore Easter retailers were feeling blue. 
There was little doing and prospects 
were not good. But later in the week 
a marked change was noted, and "she 
went with a whiz," as one retailer put 
it. Probably never before was so little 
stock left after a holiday. Monday, 
March 28, there was a rush to obtain 
stock at the market, an unusual condi- 
tion following a holiday. Valley in 
l)ots was a popular subject and sold 
well at good prices. Cut valley and 
orchids were equal to the demand, and 
roses were more plentiful than had been 
foretold. Daffodils were scarce, as the 
season for these has been a short one. 
Greens were plentiful. 

Various Notes. 



LOS ANGELES, CALIF. 



The Market. 

Although there liave been Easter 
cidebrations during which more stock 
lias been sold than in the one just 
passed, it is a question if there has 
lieen a more generally satisfactory one 
from a retailer's point of view. A com- 
jilete clean-up at good jirices clearly 
describes the situation. No doubt, a 
great many more lilies could have been 
sold, even at the high prices asked, but 
other jdaiits were taken in their places. 
This helped the grower of rambler 
roses, heathers, cinerarias, hydrangeas 
and other popular pot plants. It is 



A rush of funeral work, in addition 
to a good Easter business, kept every- 
one busy at Wolfskill's & Morris Gold- 
enson 's, and Albert Goldenson is well 
pleased.

roses iiiul other choice pot stock in ad- 
dition to elegant baskets and lilies. A 
good clean-up is reported. 

At the store of the E. C. Amling Co. 
a specialty is being made of the colonial 
bouquets of strawflowers and statice. 
These bouquets are showy and attrac- 
tive. These, of course, ship any dis- 
tance well and have proved popular. 
As briefly noted last week, Harold Am- 
ling stole a march on his friends by 
getting married, and he and his charm- 
ing bride have come in for many 
felicitations. A host of friends wish 
them every happiness. Incidentally a 
wonderful Easter business is reported. 
The California Floral Co. says that 
its Easter business was excellent, but 
that many more good pot lilies could 
have been sold had thej* been pro- 
curable. 

J. Rolleri, proprietor of the Athletic 
Club Florist, was all smiles after the 
holiday. "Cleaned out completely," 
was his remark. 

Mr. Wolfskin, of the Orchid Flower 
Shop, Pasadena, says business was fine. 
He particularly noted the high-priced 
orders sent in from the east and middle 
west. This was in marked contrast to 
those sent to this city, as several re- 
tailers said that the general run of 
telegraph orders were not for such 
large amounts as usual. 

.iohn Bodger, Sr., of John Rodger & 
Sons Co., left March 26 to take a trip 
through Europe. 

Wright's Flower Shop made a big 
clean-up for Easter. All of the many 
thousands of lilies grown at the green- 
houses were sold. Some, of course, were 
wholesaled through shipping firms in 
the city, but a large proportion of them 
went by the retail route at the West 
Fourth street store. 

A splendid Easter trade is reported 
bv the Kedondo Floral Co. H. R. R.

height, as they ran from one to five feet 
high. Sweet peas were of the highest 
quality and sold largely for corsages. 
Daffodils ranked foremost as cut flow- 
ers and also sold well as potted plants. 
Tlie remainder of i)ottcd plants were 
Darwin tulips, genistas, cinerarias, hy- 
drangeas, pelargoniums, rose plants 
and spirseas. 

Various Notes. 

The florists' window displays at 
Easter were certainly a credit to the 
trade. Good window displays mean 
good business and, judging i)y talks 
with the owners of the stores, everyone 
was more than pleased with the busi- 
ness done at Easter.

Funeral work was heavy during 
Easter week at the store of Hoyt Bros. 
Co. Among the numerous pieces were 
two beautiful casket covers. The store 
also furnished many of the table deco-

at the Davenport hotel. The demand 
for corsages for Easter Sunday was 
heavy, and it was well into Saturday

The Market. 

Stock is now plentiful, with the ex- 
ception of carnations, sweet peus ami 
orchids. There are plenty of roses, 
l)oth cut and potted. Violets will have 
ended their season, locally, about April 
10, and few daffodils remain in the 
market. Ranunculi are just coming 
in. On the whole, the market, since 
Easter, has been supplied with quanti- 
ties of stock in the nature of spring 
flowers. 

Various Notes. 

The Retail Florists' Association of 
fSan Francisco has not wished to make 
any premature announcements regard- 
ing its important jdans. However, P. 
Vincent Matraia, of the Art Floral (\)., 
has consented to make the following 
statement for The Review: "At a spe- 
cial meeting of the Retail Florists' 
Association held March 17, every flo- 
rist present subscribed toward the new 
wholesale flower market, which will be 
called the San Francisco Flower Mar- 
ket and will be composed of all the 
American wholesale growers and all 
the retail florists. At that meeting, we 
had $.'55, 000 subscribed. On the follow- 
ing Sunday, March 20, a committee 
composed of V. Podesta, Victor Ferrari 
and myself held a meeting at Cohiia. 
Cal., for the ]>urposc of getting more 
growers to subscribe. All who were 
present subscribed, bringing the total 
up to .$62,000. So far, we have not 
(juite half of the growers ;ind florists 
enlisted in the movement. At the next 
meeting we expect to have, all the flo- 
rists and growers present and expect to 
have the full amount subscribed for the 
purchase of a 5-story building, to cost 
$150,000." Although Mr. Matraia did 
not say so, it is generally understood 
that the building is already selected 
and ]iegotiations for its purchase have 
been in progress for some little time. 
However, no announcements can be 
made regarding the building till con- 
tracts are signed and other necessary 
matters attended to. 

A large number of residents of San 
Francisco were reminded of absent 
friends by the action of the Retail Flo- 
rists' Association, aided by the Western

Field View of Howard & Smith's New Noti'lateral Branching Aster Peach Blossom 

NOVELTIES AND SPECIALTIES FOR 1921 



HOWARD & SMITH'S NEW GIANT NON-LATERAL 
BRANCHING ASTERS. 

It is needless for ua to extol the qualities of this new strain of 
asters, for they are better than any other strain in America today 
for florists' use. They combine a flower of mammoth propor- 
tions with a long stem practically free of any laterals. These 
asters are the result of several years' work beginning with the 
crossing on non-lateral branching types of the Peony-flowered 
class and those of the Crego type. These asters have come to 
stay and the strain will prove a money-maker for anyone who 
grows it. They are something different. 

Peony Flowered Teach Blo8§om (incurved). A superb new 
color, fiowers of enormous size, stems 18 to 24 inches. 
Per trade packet, $2.00. 

Peony Flowered Light Blue (incurved). 
A magnificent shade, flowers 4 % to T> inches. 
Per trade packet, $2.00. 

New Giant Peach BloHsom (curled). 

A magnificent new type with curled and twisted petals after 
the style of the most ultra-refined Comet type with flowers borne 
erect on long stems non-lateral in character. 
Per trade packet, $2.00. 

New Giant Dark Purpie (curled). 

A fine companion to the foregoing flowers, enormous in size 
with petals beautifully curled and twisted. 
Per trade packet, $2.00. 

HOWARD & SMITH'.S NEW GIANT PM'MED CEI.OSI.A. 

A splendid new class of feathered Cockscombs of the Pyramidalis 
type. The plants attain a height of three feet and over and are 
surmounted with immense gracefully feathered plumes remark- 
able for their great size and splendid range of colors. The 
plants are easily raised from seed and make ideal pot plants for 
stock work. "The colors range from yellow through various 
shades of rose, carmine, crimson, bronze, etc., and a batch of 
plants grown from seed will prove remunerative. 
Per trade packet, $1.00. 



NEW ANEMONE FLOWERED DAHLIAS. 

Unquestionably one of the most distinct breaks which has oc- 
curred in cultivated plants in modern times. The blossoms are 
replicas of the Marguerite Mrs. Fred Sander or Pyrethrum 
roseum in shape. The ray petals are broad and usually of a 
different color from the center, quilled petals of the flower. A 
feature of these new dahlias is the fact that they can be repro- 
duced about 80% true to type from seed. 

Plants dwarf in habit with the blossoms borne well above the 
foliage on strong wiry stems. The color variations are marked, 
ranging from purest white through the various shades of rose, 
pink, orange, bronze, carmine, purple, yellow, crimson, etc. 
Spring sown seeds will flower the same summer. For basket 
work, or any choice cut flower arrangements they are unrivaled 
and their keeping qualities are remarkable. We predict their 
universal use as a cheice cut (lower. 

Per trade packet, $2.00. 

GYPSOPHILA ELEGANS GRANDIFLORA. 

A much Improved strain worthy of your attention as a catch 
crop in the greenhouse with much larger flowers than those of 
the older types; an H. & S. selection worth a trial. 

Per trade packet, $1.00.

The utmost enthusiasm was aroused 
among the San Francisco florists by the 
success of the Easter trade. Some of 
them declare that it surpassed the 
Christmas business, and not a few as- 
sort that they were sold out before 
closing time on the Saturday preceding 
Kaster. These include F. G. Jaeger & 
Son, Joseph's and the MacRorie-Mc- 
Laren Co. 

' ' The best business we have ever had 
since the store was started," was the 
statement regarding Easter made by the 
United Flower & Supply Co. "We 
(leaned up everything and, in spite of 
the large stock on hand, the supply was 
not equal to the demand." 

Domoto Bros, not only disposed of a 
big stock of Easter lilies, but also sold 
large quantities of potted azaleas, hy- 
drangeas and rhododendrons. The 
wholesale demand for these was large. 
M. Domoto believes that all his varie- 
ties of lilies will be in good condition 
for Memorial day. In addition, he has 
jdenty of roses, Darwin tulips and white 
and purple lilac coming from the nurs- 
eries. 

Although it was somewhat late tor 
violets, Enomoto & Co. successfully 
tried the experiment of shipping 150 
dozen violets to Baltimore for the 
Piaster trade. On Easter Sunday Mr. 
Enomoto 's new car, containing his wife 
and children, was smashed in a colli- 
sion with the machine of a careless 
autoist. The chauffeur was hurt, but 
the other members of the party were 
uninjured. 

The Growers' Cut Flower Co. has nice 
tulips and carnations coming in from 
the nurseries. The remodeled premises 
of this firm, on St. Anne street, give 
ample space for a display of baskets, 
twine and cord, which are all being 
offered to the trade. 

Largely as a window decoration, 
George P. Wagner, of Joseph's, de- 
signed a cross, six and one-half feet in 
height, of heather and white lilac 
springing from a bank of Easter lilies. 
A tourist, reputed to be one of the rich- 
est women in the United States, saw the 
cross, bought it and had it shipped to 
the home of a friend. 

L. J. Capurro, manager of the Mac- 
Rorie-McLaren Co., is proud of the fact 
that no milliner's creation in the city 
surpassed the popularity of the Easter 
hat designed by the staff in his store. 
It was a big hat of plain white straw,

Mrs. R. E. Darbee's staff worked haril 
at Easter and were sold out; not once, 
but three times. The store is showing 
some fine ranunculus in gorgeous colors. 

Albert (). Stein has, as usual, been 
executing many decorations for society 
events. A recent dinner for sixty 
guests in the Colonial ballroom of the 
St. Francis hotel was carried out in 
colonial style. The table, 18x40 feet, 
carried sixteen gilded colonial columns, 
garlanded and surmounted by spring 
flowers. In the center of the table, in 
tessellated style, were black carpets on 
little platforms. They were two feet 
square, garlanded, and were the back- 
ground for little dancing girls, in colors.

Taking the trade as a whole, it is safe to 
estimate that there were as many buy- 
ers of flowers this Easter as there have 
been in previous seasons, and in 
some cases the piling up of an equal 
sales total clearly shows that there was 
an increase in the number of patrons 
buying flowers. All of the lilies offered 
early were of fine quality, but in most 
cases it was noticeable that the plants 
having two, tliree or four blooms were 
the quickest sellers. Still another proof 
that the buyers were anxious to secure 
medium-priced items was to be found in 
the fact that the larger and higher- 
priced rose plants had to be carried 
over. There was less of a concentra- 
tion on Piaster lilies this year than in 
previous years, according to many flo- 
rists, who said they found the brighter- 
colored spring offerings in pots moving 
freely. 

There were no new offerings brought 
in for the Easter week itself, but 
heavier deliveries of lilacs and 
rhododendrons were noted. Potted 
tulips are in lighter demand at this 
time, since this was the first of the 
spring offerings to become plentiful, 
but hyacinths are Just as free sellers 
as ever. There has been a surprisingly 
good demand for ferns of late, the 
larger plants catching the buyers' eyes 
first. Hydrangeas are coming to hand 
in splendid condition, the greater share 
of current deliveries being far stronger 
as to stem than were those grown in 
former seasons. Primroses and cinera- 
rias are in large enough supply to care 
for the current demand. 

There has Vieen some increase seen 
in the local cut of orchids, but this still 
falls short of normal. Lily of the valley 
is more plentiful, while the cut of 
bouvardia is less. Tliere is still rather 
a shortage of gardenias. 

Marked improvement is seen in the 
quality of the local carnations. There 
has been a still further increase in the 
cut of local roses. 

Various Notes. 

J. L. Bourn, of Bourn & Sons, Yakima, 
was a visitor last week. This firm is 
shipping a good many carnations ;ind 
sweet peas into the Seattle market at 
this time. The latter flowers are of 
especially fine quality. A good crop of 
asters for shipment to eastern cities is

Mrs. K. K. Darhcc's staff worked lianl 
at Eiistor and were sold out, not onee, 
l)Ut three times. Tlie store is showing 
some fine ranunculus in gorgeous colors. 

Albert (). Stein lias, as usual, been 
executing many decorations for society 
events. A recent dinner for sixty 
guests in the Colonial ballroom of the 
St. Francis hotel was carried out in 
colonial style. The table, 18x40 feet, 
carried sixteen gilded colonial columns, 
garlanded and surmounted by spring 
liowers. In the center of the table, in 
tessellated style, -were black carpets on 
little platforms. They were two feet 
sipiare, garlanded, and were the back- 
ground for little dancing girls, in colors.

The Market. 

Generally speaking, entire satisfac- 
tion is expressed among florists over 
the result of Easter. All those who 
bought carefully were able to clean up. 
Taking the trade as a whole, it is safe to 
estimate that there were as many buy- 
ers of flowers this Kaster as there have 
been in previous seasons, and in 
some cases the i)iling up of an equal 
sales total clearly shows that there was 
an increase in the number of patrons 
buying flowers. All of the lilies offered 
early were of tine (juality, l)ut in most 
cases it was noticeable that the jjlants 
liaving two, three or four blooms were 
the quickest sellers. Still another proof 
that the buyers were anxious to secure 
mediuin-pricetl items was to be found in 
the fact that the larger and higher- 
priced rose jilants hail to be carried 
over. There was less of a concentra- 
tion on Kaster lilies this year than in 
j)revious years, iiccording to many flo- 
rists, who said they found the brighter- 
colored s]iring offerings in pots moving 
freely. 

There were no new offerings brought 
in for the Kaster week itself, but 
heavier deliveries of lilacs and 
rliododendrons were notetl. Potted 
tuli])s are in lighter demand at this 
time, since this was the first of the 
.spring oft"erings to become plentiful, 
but hyacinths are just as free sellers 
.as ever. There has l)een a surprisingly 
good demand for ferns of late, the 
larger plants catching the Ixiyers' eyes 
first. Hydrangeas are coming to hand 
in splendid condition, the greater share 
of current deliveries being far stronger 
as to stem than were those grown in 
former seasons. Primroses and cinera 
rias are in large enough supply to care 
for the current demand. 

There lias Vieen some increase seen 
in the local cut of orchids, but this still

is more jilentiful, Avliile the cut of

George Asmus, Chicago; Secretary John 
Young, New York, and Major P. F.

Mr. Asmus outlined the publicity

it related and contributed to the na-

his remarks, he handed to the secretary 
a check for $1,179.63, being twenty-five 
per cent of the total amount collected 
by the association for publicity pur-

Secretary Young submitted a finan- 
cial report for the months of January 
and February, showing receipts from all 
sources to have been $20,293.91. A sup- 
plementary report to March 17 showed 
additional receipts amounting to

A New Year's Thought 

Let us learn to feel the joy in things that are simple and universal — in the 
beauty of the dawn, of sunset and of flowers. Let us cuhivate a feeling of 
tenderness for all living creatures, from the dumb and patient animals to our 
brother man. Would you learn these deeper values in Iife> Study the flowers.

the work of the campaign could be con- 
tinued. 

For More Local Campaigns. 

Mr. Ammann made a report covering 
his field work in connection with the 
campaign. He expressed himself as 
heartily in accord with the plan of or- 
ganizing allied trade associations in 
every district, and declared his willing- 
ness to devote his entire time to such 
work for a limited period, but pointed 
out that it would be impossible for him 



The Tart Tale 
Of The Tisket Tasket Basket 



That $5 Hobby Box of Mine, 
and the $5 Happy Hap Fern 
proved such comforting little 
business builders, that I began 
looking around for another 
$5 favorite. 

One day in comes a darling 
little girl of seven sunny sum- 
mers, who was humming the 
tune of that delightful old 
children's game, "Tisket a 



Tasket, a green and yellow 
basket" — you know the rest, 
how it ends in a kiss. 
There, then, was the very idea. 
A Tisket Tasket Basket filled 
with flowers of sunshine and 
laughter. 

And so now we have the $5 
trio: My Hobby Box, The 
Happy Hap Fern, The Tisket 
Tasket Basket. 



Next time you have a $5 F. T. D. customer, 
wire us to send any of the trio.

That all subscribers to the campaign 
fund might be informed as to the finan- 
cial status of the campaign, the secre- 
tary was instructed to issue a folder 
showing the amount of money sub- 
scribed, the money received, sums not 
yet collected and the amounts received 
from allied trade associations and other 
sources, with a summary of disburse- 
ments under general headings. He was 
also instructed to send to the trade 
papers a list of subscriptions and cash 
received from all sources from January 
1, 1921, and to send other lists at proper 
intervals. 

Many plans and suggestions were con-

NASHVILLE. 



The Market. 

Easter was an exceptionally warm, 
sunshiny, beautiful day and was pre- 
ceded by an equally delightful week. 
The unusual warmth and the abundance 
of sunshine had made most of the out- 
door spring bulbous flowers a thing of 
the past. In fact, everything conspired 
to make the Easter business exception- 
ally good. Never before in the history 
of Nashville were there more high-grade 
lilies. There were many short, stocky 
])lants, each one with five or six good 
blooms. The growers had timed matters 
just right in order to have everything 
at its best. The sunshine had brought 
on a heavy crop of both roses and car- 
nations. In fact, for once Nashville 
had more high-class cut flowers than it 
could use locally on a major holiday. 

Business started in early. A week be- 
fore Easter many plants were already 
being delivered, and everybody was 
busy. This large business before Easter, 
however, did not seem to cut down the 
rush during the day and evening of 
March 26. 

There was a comparatively small sup- 
ply of hyacinths, cyclamens and ciner- 
arias. Perhaps the shortage on other 
pot plants helped in the sale of lilies. 
At any rate, there was no surplus stock 
left on hand. Some of the florists sold 
out entirely, and the others say that 
they can make good use of the few that 
were left over.

Out-of-town orders for delivery in New York 
carefully and promptly filled at reasonable rates 

Heavy rains and cold weather follow- 
ing on the heels of Easter made it possi- 
ble for the growers to get their breath 
and clean up a bit before the rush in 
summer bedding plants. 

Various Notes. 

Plans are being laid by the local iris 
society in conjunction with the national 
society to hold an iris show here some- 
time near the middle of April. The date 
has not been definitely fixed yet, be- 
cause of the uncertainty of the season. 
A dahlia show was held last fall. While 
these shows are not largely attended by 
outside people, they arouse a great deal 
of interest in the city and vicinity, and 
are decidedly increasing the sale of out- 
door stock. No doubt more irises and 
dahlias are being bought here this year

Tliero was just one thinff to do. Tlint 
was to sivo the stret't men .-i eliaiu'c at 
it. This wjis done, and while the less 
s.'iid about the prices the better, yet in 
this way niiieh of it was disposed of. 
It was an off week in the market, but 
let us hope it will only be teuiporary. 
Roses, which were plentiful, were of tlie 
finest quality. They were to be had in 
any (|uaiitity, and all of the varietii's 
were represented. Carn.ations were 
inner of finer (piality and were ncarinp; 
the glut st:i^e. Sweet peas that were at 
a {iri'inium just one week before were 
to be had in the finest sh.-ules and qual- 
ity in almost any quantity. Lilies, th;it 
should have been in for J'^.'ister, were 
fioiiif:^ bej,^jiin<;-. ('alias, which seemed lo 
start late this winter, were makiii}' u\) 
for lost time. Bulbous stock cased u]i 
considerably. It seemed that most of 
this h;id been held back for Ejister and

was used up. There was plenty of mis- 
cellaneous stock of all sorts. Asparagus 
was plentiful, but smilax was short. 

There was a good supply of hydrangea 
plants that had missed Easter. There 
was little demand for them. 

But, while there was some conges- 
tion, it will not last long. Conditions 
seemed to indicate that everything will 
be back to normal in a short time. The 
whole thing was caused by a temporary 
abnormal supply. 

Various Notes. 

The Florists' Club is going to play a 
prominent part in the Flower Mart to 
be held at the base of Washington's 
monument by the Women's Civic 
League this year. Last year the club 
cooperated with the ladies in this good 
work. It was then that some of the 
members realized that it was a good 
thing and reported so to the club. The. 
object of the market is to educate the 
public in using more flowers about the 
home, to sell plants at the lowest possi-

is to be the phieo. This will accommo- 
date an audience of about 1,000. The 
entertainment committee, with Joseph 
S. Merritt as chairman, and Robert Ilal- 
liday, an old friend of Mr. Hill, is work- 
ing; it up, and is Rjjaring no pains to 
make this the greatest rose night Bal- 
timore has ever witnessed. A display 
of commercial roses will be an added 
attraction to Mr. Hill's lecture. Those 
in charge are sending invitations to all 
the known rose lovers in the city and 
tickets will be given to each club mem- 
ber for distribution as he may see fit. 
There was some question about the 
Southern roof garden being too large 
for this lecture, but from present indi- 
cations it is going to be too small. Mr.

ST. LOUIS, 



The Market. 



Wholesale market conditions last 
week greatly favored the retailers, as 
the daily receipts far exceeded the de- 
mand and prices were cut to fit the 
quantity and quality. The retailers say 
that business, as is usual just after a 
big flower day like Easter, was some- 
what slow. Even society held off a 
week and nothing of any importance 
came from this source. According to 
the society columns of the daily press, 
there will soon be considerable doings 
in the way of weddings, receptions and 
parties. Therefore business among the 
retailers should be rushing, especially 
since spring is in the air again and the 
cold, disagreeable weather has left us.

week was a great crop of excellent 
roses, of which only the extra fancy 
stock held up in price. Among them 
were Premier, Ophelia, Columbia, Hus- 
sell, a few American Beauty and a 
large supply of splendid Killarney and 
Milady. Carnations were abundant and 
fell in price considerably during the 
week, especially in thousand lots. Sweet 
peas of the long, fancy grades were not 
numerous, but the majority of the con- 
signments were of the poorer grades. 
With more clear weather, receipts of 
these will increase. Easter lilies and 
callas were in good demand for funeral 
work and in these the prices remained 
stationary. Snapdragons arrived freely 
and brought top prices for select spikes. 
Marguerites, calendulas, pansies and 
mignonette, as usual, sold well. Bulb- 
ous stock is almost cut out and the buy- 
ers are awaiting the outdoor cut. Val- 
ley dragged somewhat last week, but 
the demand should now revive greatly. 
In greens everything desirable is to be 
had and the demand generally cleans 
up the market daily.

(leorso II. Pring will also show inter-

exhibition. The officers of the club will 
meet this week and decide upon a meet- 
ing ])lace large enough to hold the large 
attendance expected. The secretary 
will send out special notices to all mem- 
bers. 

George II. Pring. horticulturist at tlve 
Missouri Pot.anical Ciarden, reports that 
the cold weather which started Easter 
Sunday did great damage to vegeta- 
tion in general. As the mercury regis- 
tered as low as 19 degrees above zero, 
ho believes that all tlio early fruit 
crops, which w(M-(> in full bloom, were 
destroye(l. Otlier authorities in the 
state are of the same opinion. 

■Tose]ih Witek will break ground this 
week for the erection of his new store, 
adjoining his present location. It is 
said that the new structure, including 
the show liouse, will cost $50,000. 

Correspondence received from Sar- 
eoxie, Mo., states that the famous peony 
fields there will be in full bloom two 
weeks earlier than usual this year, 
which means about May 1. As great 
shipments from there come to this 
market each year, the early cut may 
cause a shortage for Decoration day. 

The W. C. Smith Wholesale Floral 
Co. is marketing a fine lot of calceo- 
l.arias from the greenhouses in Kirk- 
wood and these are in great demand 
among local retailers. 

.loseph Frank, who has a floral de- 
partment in Kresge's 5 and 10-cent 
store, reports groat business at Easter 
and since then. Mr. Frank aids greatly 
in relieving the market of surplus 
stock after the ordinary members of 
the trade have finished buying. 

All the plant stands in the Union 
Market, which did wonderful business 
up to March 28, were obliged to close

"Bill" Smith and Tom C'arr, who ad- 
mire high-class dogs, visited the dog 
show at the Coliseum last week. Mr. 
Smith would have entered his famous 
dachshund, Longfellow, but found no 
bench long enough to hold him. 

The cold weather in the early part of 
last "vveek stopped the great rush of 
business among seedsmen, nurserymen 
and landscape architects, but at this 
writing the big rush is on again.

ing, has been confined to bed by illness 
since Easter and it is reported that 
she will not be able to attend to busi- 
ness for at least a month. 

Miss Gussie Malloy, for many years 
in the employ of Grimm & Gorly, has 
resigned that position .Tnd is now em- 
ployed at Vandervoort 's floral depart- 
ment. 

The florists on the cast side, among 
them Grimm & Gorly and Miss L. Dous- 
sard, say there never was a better 
Easter business than this year. At 
Belleville, Gust W. Grossart, W. E. 
Ogle, A. G. Fehr, Mat Shoenenberger 
and Henry Emunds all say it was one 
of the best Easters they know of. 

Henry G. Berning reports that while 
local demand was not so great last 
week, shipping trade kept up wonder- 
fully well, considering that the week 
after Easter is always a little slow. 

The Windier Wholesale Floral Co. 
has put in several busy weeks in the 
shipping of supplies to western points. 

Hembreiker & Cole, of Springfield, 
111., supplied the local trade, through 
the W. C. Smith Wholesale Floral Co., 
with a fine lot of potted Easter lilies. 
Nearly 5,000 were disposed of during 
Easter week. 

George Madsen, head of the Alton 
Floral Co., and Mrs. Joseph Krug, 
Alton, 111., had their hands full during 
the Easter rush, and say it was one of 
the best in years. 

The bowlers started again March 30, 
but, as is usual after a big flower day 
like Easter, the boys were tired and 
poor scores were made. The Boses lost 
one of the three games to the Sweet

SALT LAKE CITY. 



The Market. 

Business last week was good, consid- 
ering that Easter had just passed. Rose 
prices dropped after Easter and an 
abundance of shorts in all varieties 
were offered. Ophelia, Columbia and 
Dunlop are in big demand and clean up 
every day. Medium roses are in smaller 
supply and what are to be had move 
well. Carnations are in good supply. 
Laddie cleans up well at all times. The 
sweet pea supply is beginning to be 
short, and more could be handled, were 
they available. 

Easter Report. 

The prediction before Easter that 
business would be good was certainly 
fulfilled. Never in the history of Salt 
Lake City was so much stock moved 
during Easter week. 

The weather March 24 and 25 was not 
so good as it might have been, but a 
warm, sunshiny day March 26 filled 
every store with eager buyers. Al- 
though the supply of Easter lilies was 
about the same as last year, the demand 
was so much greater that it was im- 
possible to buy an Easter lily in Salt 
Lake City on the afternoon of March 26, 
and most of the stores were cleaned out 
on this item early March 25. After the 
lilies were gone hyacinths, tulips, ram- 
blers, spiraeas and a large variety of 
other plants cleaned up in rapid-fire 
order. Cut flowers did not move well 
until late March 26, but as soon as the 
pot plant supply began to get low the 
tide turned to cut flowers, with the con- 
sequence that some of the stores sent 
an S. O. S. to the growers late on the 
night of March 26, to rush in cut 
flowers. 

The quality of the stock this year was 
the best seen for a long time. Prices 
were lower this year, but the volume 
of business was so much greater that the 
receipts were just about as good. Let

Various Notes. 

Albert Alt, of the Huddart Floral Co., 
rejiorts Kaster business as beiiifi; more 
than he expected. He put in ;i much 
larf,'er stock than ever before, but was 
forced to send rush orders to his fjrow- 
ers iit the last minute. Mr. Alt says he 
always writes himself n letter after each 
bif^ flower day .and tells himself not to 
try 1o do more business than he can 
li.'indle. But his Kaster business shows 
tli.'it these letters do not have much 
effect on the recipient. 

Ernest Lambouriie re])orts a record 
business. Mr. Lambouriie was badly 
handicapped throiifjh the sickness of his 
rifjht hand man, Arthur Granshaw, who 
is ];iid up with rheumatism. It is hoped 
that he will soon be around ajjain. 

Miss Childs, of the B. C. Morris Floral 
Co., was exceptionally pleased with 
Easter results. Miss Childs ordered a 
much larger stock this year than last.

the plant supply gone. One of the com- 
pany's trucks was kept busy all after- 
noon hauling plants from the green- 
houses. As fast as they could be ob- 
tained, they were sold. 

The Ideal Floral Co., 38 South Main 
street, reports that everything salable 
was sold and more could have been dis- 
posed of had it been obtainable. 

At the Miller Floral Co. greenhouses, 
Farmington, the only plants left are a 
few which did not show color last week. 
Seven truckloads of plants were sent 
to the city on the afternoon of March 
26. Orders for that much more stock 
could have been obtained, but the sup- 
ply soon ran out and everything that 
looked like a flower was cleaned up. 

One of the finest windows ever seen in 
Salt Lake City was in evidence from 
March 21 to 26, at the store of the Mil- 
ler Floral Co. A large Easter egg, a 
chicken farm, with little chickens in 
abundance, Easter lilies, spiraeas and 
rambler roses were used. The entrance 
to an inn, named the "Chick inn," was 
built in the window. Crowds of inter- 
ested spectators could be found before 
the window at any time during the en- 
tire week. So big was this gathering 
that it was a hard matter to get along 
the street. It was certainly a fine win- 
dow and much credit is due the artist,

good sale for sweet peas, the demand 
fell off considerably on roses and car- 
nations. 

Many lilies, which just missed Easter, 
also came to the market during the 
week, and the supply in general is above 
the demand now. 

The principal demand at Easter was 
for Easter lilies. While there was 
a good supply, they all sold. Rambler 
roses and hydrangeas were not up to the 
usual standard, and the demand for 
these plants was not so heavy as for 
lilies. 

Most growers now are busy with their 
spring bedding stock, and are getting 
ready for a big season's business. P. 



TOLEDO. 

The Market. 

Now that the Easter rush is over, 
things are settling down to a pre- 
Lenten basis. The trade does not ex- 
pect any great returns at once, except 
that the Easter rush cleaned up every- 
thing in sight for the growers, and the 
consequent necessary replenishing of 
stock keeps everyone busy. The city's 
shortage of wholesale fa«ilities compels 
most of the retailers to depend on out-

side sources for such stock as roses, val- 
ley, violets and so on. Everything 
seemed to sell well for Easter and, judg- 
ing by the appearance of the retail 
stores, everyone must have done well. 
This condition is remarkable in view of 
the fact that half of the people in town 
are idle, as most of the industries that 
are operating at all are only working 
about four days a week. 

Various Notes, 

Metz & Bateman closed their doors 
the day before Easter at 5 p. m. No 
more orders were taken. 

Max Spanner enjoyed the best Easter 
of his career as a florist. 

The Central Flower Shop maintains 
the high standard of the late Mrs. J. B. 
Freeman, and reports Easter as the best 
in the history of the store. 

The Easter business of Feniger's 
Flower Shop Avas the best ever and 
many were turned away because every- 
thing had been sold out. H. E. K.

side sources for such stock as roses, val- 
ley, violets and so on. Everything 
seemed to sell vyell for Easter and, judg- 
ing by the appearance of the retail 
stores, everyone must have done well. 
This condition is remarkable in view of 
the fact that half of the people in town 
are idle, as most of the industries that 
are operating at all are only working 
about four days a week. 

Various Notes. 

Metz & Bateman closed their doors 
the day before Easter at 5 p. m. No 
more orders were taken. 

Max Spanner enjoyed the best Easter 
of his career as a florist. 

The Central Flower Shop maintains 
the high standard of the late Mrs. J. B. 
Freeman, and reports Easter as the best 
in the history of the store. 

The Easter business of Feniger's 
Flower Shop was the best ever and 
many were turned away because every- 
thing had been sold out. H. E. K.

FRAT-M'S 

Frat-M's are a great help to florlstfl who make funeral work. They are exact 
reproductions of the official emblems embossed In gold and the different colors aa 
required by each Fraternal and Labor organization. 

The florist la saved time and worry in the nuisance of lettering, as well aa the 
keeping of such a stock of wire frames, and different colored flowers. Just use. such 
flowers as you have and then attach a FRAT-M with paste to the chiffon, or by the 
hanger that comes for each, as a card, and that is all there Is to it, excepting the com- 
ment and commendatory talk for the florist. 

Just pick out a dozen of the most used from the list following, enclosing $2.00 per 
dozen, and if they don't make you ten times their cost, return those unused and get 
your money. 

Square and Compass, Chapter, Commandery, 82nd Degree, Shrine, Eastern Star, 
Royal Neighbors, M. W. A., Maccabees, Odd Fellows, Red Men, Knights of Columbus, 
K. of P., Moose, Jr. O. U. A. M., B. of R. T., B. of R. Clerks, B. of L. E., Br. of Black- 
smiths and Helpers, Eagles. 

Just give Frat-M's a trial; you don't have to keep them. We are willing to aend 
them to you and return the money if they don't pay you ten times their cost. Address

The Market. — 

"The bigfjcst Easter we evor had." 
"Not half enough stock to fjo around.'' 
"What wonderful weather!" These 
and many more expressions were heard 
from praetieally every florist in town in 
regard to their Easter business. In- 
deed, everyone was busy and it is an 
aelvnowledged fact that considerably 
more stock could have been sold if it 
had been jn-oeurable. Every available 
flower was picked and sold. 

Since the holiday, l)UsinesH has been 
good. Weddings liavc been (juite nu- 
merous and several large parties have 
called for fairly good decorations. On 
top of this, thofe has been much funeral 
work, which has considerably helped to 
reduce the large amount of stock on 
hand. Stock of all kinds is i)lentifu!, 
and ])rices are low. The large iiuanti- 
ties of stock reaching us just two or 
thri'c days after the holiday caused 
prices to go down in order to clear. 

Koses are jiart icularly low in ]irice, 
while the (juality is excellent. Carna- 
tions are ]>lentiful, but the heavy cuts 
caused them to slow uji a trille towards 
the week-end. Daffodils remain in 
heavy supply, although they cannot last 
much longer at the rate they have been 
coming. Sweet ])eas are plentiful, but 
the long-stemmed stuck is off for a 
while. Stocks of a good medium gradt' 
r(>aches us and clears well. ( "aleiidul.-is 
are in good demand and have an e\eii 
sale. Myosotis and mignonette are of 
good (|uality and sell well in basket 
combinations arrangerl with yellow 
daisies. Orchids and gardenias are hav- 
ing a fairly good market of late. Last 
week vicdets were excejn ionally good 
and the supply heiivy, but the sale on 
them has been small. Snapdragons arc 
reaching us in several varied shades and 
have a ready sale. Paiier Whites, 
freesias and jtoeticus narcissi are slow- 
ing up considerably. Valley is ]dentiful 
and is being used more readily of late. 
Lilies and callas are snmewhat scarce. 
Various Notes. 

Mrs. ■I<p.icliiiii Schult, Hilton, X. \ ..

blossoms are occasionally seen.

The Rorists' Review 



April 7, 1921 



Seed Trade News 

AMXXIOAS SEED TSASE ASSOCIATION. 
Preildent, H. O. Baitings, Atlanta, Qa.; lec- 
retarjr-treaiurer, 0. B. Kendel, Olereland, 0. 



George J. Cannon, a prominent seed 
grower of Buckeye, Wash., was last week 
elected to the office of vice-president of 
the Washington Farm Bureau Federa- 
tion. 

The cold si)ell last week halted the 
stream of gardeners that had been pour- 
ing into Chicago seed stores, but Ralph 
B. Howe, manager of the W. W. Bar- 
nard Co., reports that business is still 
up to that of previous seasons. 

Booths at the "Own Your Own 
Home" show at the Coliseum, Chicago, 
last week occupied by Vaughan's Seed 
Store and J. Oliver Johnson, drew far 
more attention than those devoted to the 
exhibition of mechanical household de- 
vices and construction materials. 

Headquarters of G. Willett Warren, 
who is establishing a selling service for 
seedsmen, are not at St. Louis, but at 
Lansing, Mich., at 519 Oakland build- 
ing. He plans to act as a clearing 
house for dealers in seeds, bulbs, nurs- 
ery stock and allied lines everywhere. 

PENNSYLVANIA SEED BILL. 

Having passed the lower house, the 
Pennsylvania "pure seed bill" is now 
before the state senate for passage. It 
has the support of Secretary of Agri- 
culture Fred Easmussen, by whom it 
was drafted and who would be the en- 
forcing officer under its provisions. The 
bill goes into detail in specifying both 
the species of agricultural seeds and of 
noxious weeds and the percentages "of 
weed seeds which would be allowed in 
specified quantities of agricultural seeds 
offered for sale. Varieties of agricul- 
tural seeds mentioned in the act are the 
Canada and Kentucky blue grass, brome 
grass, fescues, millets, tall meadow oat 
grass and orchard grass, redtop, Italian 
rye grass, kafir corn, perennial rye 
grass, sorghum, sudan grass, timothy, 
alfalfa, alsike, clover, crimson, red, 
sweet and white clover, Canada field 
peas, cow peas, soy bean's, vetches, 
buckwheat, flax, rape, barley, field corn, 
grains, forage pl.ants and other grasses, 
legumes, cereals and vegetables. 

Wild onion or garlic, quack grass, 
dodders, Canada thistle, devil's paint 
brush. King Devil, perennial sow this- 
tle, horse nettle and bindweed are the 
specified varieties of noxious weeds. 

The bill would make it unlawful to 
offer for sale any seeds in bulk pack- 
ages without labels carrying the ac- 
cepted names of the seed, the percent-

THIRTY YEARS IN CALIFORNIA. 



John Rodger's Rise. 

Jolin Bddgor, president of John 
Bodger & Sons Co., Los Angeles, Cal., 
is celebrating his seventy-fifth birthday 
year by touring the seed growing cen- 
ters of Europe. 

He will first visit his boyhood home,

in Somersetshire, England, whore he 
began his cancer as a florist, nurseryman 
and seedsman. For thirty years after 
liis early marriage lie catered to a 
steadily growing trade and a still more 
rapidly increasing family, until on the

advice of a well known London seeds- 
man, who had visited San Francisco in 
the year ]880, he decided to dispose of 
his retail business in England and start 
life over again in California as a 
grower. The year 1891 found him 
established with his family in Ventura 
county, growing flower and vegetable 
seed on a scant acre of poor ground. 
For the first ten years the new enter- 
prise had a hard struggle for life. This 
is not strange, considering the fact that 
Mr. Bodger and his sons were handi- 
capped by scanty knowledge of Cali- 
fornia farming conditions, by adverse 
weather, and, last but not least, by in- 
sufficient funds. However, the whole 
family put in their best efforts, and Mr. 
Bodger steadfastly fixed his hopes on 
that success which his sanguine nature 
believed to be always just around the 
corner. Today his dreams have been 
abundantly realized — one might say 
literally a thousandfold — as the firm of 
which he is still an active member has 
expanded from a 1-acre plot to consid- 
erably over 1,000 acres of rich soil, em- 
ploying scientific methods and the most 
up-to-date machinery. 

New Asters and Zinnias. 

The firm grows standard varieties of 
flower and vegetable seeds, but Mr. 
Bodger 's personal favorites among the 
flowers are asters and zinnias, and for 
the last ten years, working in conjunc- 
tion with his sons, ho has not only per- 
fected the older varieties of asters and 
zinnias, but has created many entirely 
now types. Prominent among the 
asters is the long-stemmed Beauty type, 
a valued addition to the florists '"collec- 
tion. Chief among the zinnias is that 
magnificent "new race," known as 
dahlia-flowered. Authorities on the 
subject agree that this now type is as 
important an advance in the' develop- 
ment of the zinnia as was the Spencer 
selection in the history of the sweet 
pea. So largo are these' zinnias, so vel- 
vety in texture and so charming in color 
range that they have risen from their

humble place as the plebeian of ' ' grand- 
ma 's garden" to the proud patrician 
of exclusive florists' shops. The de- 
mand for these flowers is so great that 
the company is devoting 200 acres this 
season to asters and zinnias alone. 

Sons Carry On Work. 

While Mr. Bodgcr is in Europe, his 
firm will be carrying on business as 
usual under the able supervision of his 
sons, Walter Bodger, vice-president, 
John C. Bodger, secretary, and Tom 
M. Bodger, superintendent. The photo- 
graph on page 104 was taken just be- 
fore Mr. Bodger and his wife started 
for New York, where they will embark 
for Southampton, sailing April 12. 

Present Activities. 

Good rains followed by good planting 
weather have made the prospects for a 
normal crop of seeds at the Bodger 
farms good. The company reports an 
exceptional run on surplus stock of 
flower seeds, especially asters and 
zinnias. There has been a marked in- 
crease in sales during the last three 
or four years, says John C. Bodgcr, 
since the introduction of tlie new 
strains and novelties, and he prophesies 
that in a few more years the zinnia will 
be the most popular annual flower 
grown. He bases this assertion on the 
many complimentary letters and reports 
received from Seattle, Montreal, Texas 
and Florida, which go to show that 
these flowers will thrive in any climate 
and under any condition, which cannot 
be said of the aster and many other 
flowers which are used largely in flo- 
rists' work. 

The company has just planted out 
two .nnd one-half acres under lath 
houses to aspidistras, both variegated 
and green, and hopes to be able to take 
care of the trade in that line in from 
two to three years. It also anticipates 
a successful growing season for Iris 
tingitana and hopes to find at digging 
time that the bulbs produced are of as 
fine quality as those imported from 
pjurope. The company has planted 50,- 
00(1 as a trv-oiit. 



SOY BEAN GOING NORTH. 

The soy bean, an Asiatic importation, 
popularly associated with the south, is 
making its way north, and, according to 
reports received by the United States 
Department of Agriculture, is being well 
received. 

Most of the varieties first brought to 
this country were from parts of Asia 
whose climate corresponded more nearly

to the southern states. Within the last 
seven or eight years the department has 
obtained about 300 introductions of soy 
beans from Manchuria, Korea and 
Japan, some of which grew as far north 
as the fifty-second parallel. The most 
promising northern varieties arc the 
Black Eyebrow, the Mandarin and the 
Manchu, all native to a latitude of about 
46 degrees, on account of which they 
are adapted to our most northern states. 
A large number of samples of Black 
Eyebrow soy bean were sent to northern 
farmers last year, and out of 551 re- 
ports returned more than 400 were fa- 
vorable. Eeports promise a great in- 
crease in acreage in northern states 
this year. Seedsmen are laying in sup- 
plies of these more northern varieties; 
but many farmers, if unable to obtain 
northern seed, will plant old varieties, 
such as Ito San. From ninety to ninety- 
five per cent of soy beans are raised for 
hay, silage and pasture, although they 
are prolific seed producers.

The Florists^ Review 



Apkii. 7, 1921 




Early poonios in Toiinesspo arc ro- 
jiortcMl an heavily ilaniajred V)y tiic frosts 
a week ago. 

(;. II. I'ERKINK ir, of Jackson & Per- 
kins ("o., Newark, N. Y., called on the 
trade at ('liicafi;o last week. He made a 
trip to Minneapolis April 1, returning 
the following day to Chicago. 

TiiK spring season in southwest Iowa 
has been excejitionally mild and stock 
was planted earlier than usual. There 
have recently been showers through the 
section, although a general rain is 
needed. 

In its second year of business the May 
Seed & Nursery Co., Shenandoah, la., 
reports a satisfactory increase over last 
year. A 15-acre tract of land has been 
l)urchased for experimental and trial 
ground purposes. 

Nurserymen regard the cold spell last 
week as a godsend. "Stock can now be 
held sufficiently long to clean u]i, from 
present indications of the season's de- 
mands," said William A. Peterson, of 
Peterson Nursery, Chicago. 

Edgar Stark, of the Stark Bros. Nurs- 
eries & Orchards Co., Louisiana, Mo., 
has been visiting southern California, 
putting in part of his time with an old 
friend, J. D. Meriwcather, of the Arm- 
strong Nurseries, Ontario, Cal. 

Two bulletins of interest to nursery- 
men recently published by the College of 
Agriculture of the University of Mis- 
souri are No. 176, "Nursery and Orchard 
Insect Pests," and No. 177, "Dipping 
and Fumigation of Nursery Stock." 

Many lines of ornamentals were sold 
out by April 1, report the Mount Arbor 
Nurseries, Shenandoah, la. They have 
shipped practically the same number of 
cars as at this time a year ago. A few 
lines arc rei)orted as slow, but. taken as 
a whole, demand has been good. 

The most striking exhibit at the "Own 
Yoiir Own Home" show at the Coliseum, 
Chicago, last week was the jdanting by 
Swain Nelson & Sons Co. for small home 
grounds. Brick walks divided a lawn, 
made of moss, into plots that were ar- 
tistically filled with evergreens from the 
Glenview nurseries of this company. The 
booth adjoining was constantly besieged 
l>y inquiries as to jdantings suitable for 
each one's' home. A handsome illus 
trated folder on landscape gardens was 
distributed. 

The attention of all nurserymen op- 
crating in the state of Washington, or 
maintaining agents there, is called to a 
recent law now in eff^ect. Under its pro- 
visions, the state department of agricul- 
ture shall issue licenses to all "agents, 
salesmen or collectors" for all nurser- 
ies, ' ' either in or out of the state. ' ' The 
agent's or collector's license costs but 
$1 per year, but the firm represented is 
required to take out a dealer's license, 
costing $5. This latter must also have 
with it a bond for $1,000, to be filed 
as surety with the state treasurer at 
Olympia, Wash. 



The recent cold wave retarded the 
})looming of roses in the extensive fields 
of George F. Verhalen, at Scottsville, 
Tex., always a remarkable sight in this 
month of the year. 

Spring packing is keeping C. R. Burr 
& Co., of Manchester, Conn., quite busy. 
An early spring with unseasonably hot 
weather is making nurserymen in that 
section hustle to get stock out. 

PRACTICAL REFORESTATION. 



Possibilities in the Project. 

Reforestation is a subject which looms 
on the trade horizon like the mirage on 
the horizon of a desert. Perhaps the 
simile is incorrect in that the nursery 
business is not by an^ means a desert, 
yet the efi'ect is the same. How puny 
the total nursery business in the United 
States seems when compared with the 
possibilities in reforesting millions of 
acres of waste or cut-over land! Unfor- 
tunately the mirage is only looming on 
the horizon. The nearer we get to it, the 
farther away it is. 

The immensity of the project may be 
imagined from the following excer])t 
taken from an address by M. Mierisch, 
of Glenview, 111., before the meeting 
of the Illinois Nurserymen's Association 
recently. He said: "With practically 
two-thirds of the original forests gone, 
according to the American Forestry 
Magazine, the United States contains 
.326,000,000 acres of cut-over or denuded 
forests, containing no saw timber. A 
great proportion of this land is not fit 
for agricultural purposes and the 81,000,- 
000 acres of this completely devastated 
;irea of idle land is being increased bv 
from n,Ono,000 to 4,000,000 acres an- 
nually. A reforestation policy is badly 
needed. We all may live to see the day 
wlion there will be laws passed com- 
pelling land owners to plant a new tree 
for every one cut down. A national 
forest jirogram bill has been introduced 
ill the Senate and in the House.

until the time has arrived when there 
will be* millions and millions of those 
forest plants needed? Then the govern- 
ment or the individual states will have 
to grow all of this stock, because it 
cannot be obtained from the nurserymen 
in sufficient quantity or in the desired 
varieties. True enough, we have one of 
the best and most up-to-date establish- 
ments right here in Illinois, at Dundee, 
and there are nurseries specializing in 
forest plants in the east, but whenever 
this country goes into reforestation there 
will be a tremendous shortage of stock." 

Down to Brass Tacks. 

The trouble seems to be where to be- 
gin. One of the immediate proposals is 
that the public roads in each state should 
be lined with shade trees. This, at least, 
is something definite and has already 
been started in some states. But twider 
the present specifications for road build- 
ing all the earth in the right of way is, 
in most cases, scraped off and used for 
the roadbed. On the side of the road, 
instead of a shoulder of good earth, 
there is a hollow of disfiguring rock or 
gravel. 

The first move to make is to have leg- 
islation passed to change these specifica- 
tions so that no road shall be built with- 
out a shoulder of earth on each side on 
which to plant trees if occasion should 
arise, is the suggestion of William A. 
Peterson, of Peterson Nursery, Chicago, 
who has been active in the work of the 
Forest Preserve Commission of Cook 
county. 

Legislative bodies may not see the 
need for planting trees on roadways, 
but they can and will see the possibility 
that trees may need to be planted. If 
this possibility exists, it follows that 
specifications for road building should

Prosecutions under Quarantine. 

\rany illegal shipments of currant and 
gdoseberry bushes and 5-leaved pines 
have been made in the past four years, a 
large majority of them by nurserymen, 
states C. L. Marlatt, chairman of the fed- 
eral horticultural board. An analysis, 
made by this board of the violations of 
blister rust quarantines which have been 
discovered, shows that out of a total of 
122, forty-nine nurseries were re- 
sponsible for 105 of these prohibited 
shipments. 

White pines \vere discovered, in a few 
shipments, under the name of Jack pine, 
or other yellow pines. Violations have 
occurred from Massachusetts, New York, 
New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michi- 
gan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Mis- 
souri, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana and 
Alabama. Some of the shipments were 
made from regions infected with blis- 
ter rust, and a few came from nurseries

known to have diseased stock the pre- 
vious year. 

All such violators of this quarantine 
will be prosecuted, says Mr. Marlatt. A 
number of convictions have already been 
secured. A force of inspectors is in the 
field, and drastic action will be taken to 
make the quarantine effective. 

The cooperation of all nurserymen is 
Requested by the board in upholding the 
federal and state blister rust quaran- 
tines. Federal Quarantine 26, effective 
June 1, 1917, prohibits the shipment of 
5-leaved pines, currants or gooseberries 
from points east of and including Minne- 
sota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas and 
Louisiana to points west of these states. 
This quarantine also prohibits the ship- 
ment of 5-leaved pines and black cur- 
rants from New England and New York 
to any point outside of these sections, 
and prohibits, further, the shipment of 
5-leaved pines and black currant plants 
from the New England states into the 
state of New York. These regulations 
are made to prevent the introduction of 
the blister rust into uninfected regions 
by the transportation of diseased host 
plants from infected areas and especially 
to protect the valuable western white 
pine forests. A single shipment of in- 
fected stock may cause great loss. 

Traces Disease Ravages. 

In order that common carriers and 
nurserymen may know the federal blis- 
ter rust quarantine laws, and the regions 
to which they apply, a poster has been 
printed by the federal board, giving 
this information, and is being sent all 
nurserymen in the east, as well as cer- 
tain freight and express agents and 
postmasters. Additional copies may be

secured from the federal horticultural 
board at Washington, D. C. It is realized 
that carelessness on the part of nursery 
employees frequently is responsible for 
illegal shipments. The board would like 
to have this poster placed in packing 
sheds as a reminder of shipping re- 
strictions. 

Blister rust is widespread throughout 
New England, New York, western Wis- 
consin and northeastern Minnesota. All 
5-leaved pines, currants and gooseberries 
shipped into the west prior to enactment 
of quarantine have been inspected, and 
no trace of the disease has been foun<l 
west of the Great Plains. The western 
white and sugar pine forests comprise 
55,000,000,000 feet of timber, and young 
growth of these species has exceptional 
value in future forest management. The 
safety of these forests depends upon 
keeping out the blister rust. 



KANSAS CITY, MO. 



The Market. 

One of tlic outstanding conclusions to 
be dr:iwn from the Easter business is 
that it pays to advertise. Had there 
been a lingering regret on the part of 
any contributor to the publicity fund 
of the Florists' Club, it would have 
been swept away when tlio day's sales 
were clieckcd up. This Easter was 
easily the best ever known. Those who 
have been in the business for many 
years were among tliose wlio were most 
surprised at the results. They did not 
expect such a clean-up. All the florists 
agree tliat advertising was largely re- 
sponsible for it. Disjilay advertising 
by the associated florists was run Palm 
Hunday and four other days of the week 
before Easter. In addition to this, va- 
rious florists used display and classified 
space in the daily newspapers. It is be- 
lieved that advertising lilies at 50 cents 
a bloom brought many buyers who 
would not have come had they not 
known the price. Advertising must 
have done the work, for the lily supply 
was exhausted early Saturday, March 
26. Tlie report of one florist is that of 
all, a clean-up, differing only in details. 

There was a shortage of small stock, 
as $3 to $10 was the popular range, with 
a heavier sale below $5 than above. 
High-priced stock and fancy baskets 
did not take hold. Some of it was sold.

Five hundred thousand this year and half of them

that are to come — days jvhen pr^iduction will tell the 
story of profit or loss/ Labor yis plenty. Dig in 
and replant. We can still supiHy the best that can 
be produced, before-the-war quality; better shipping 
conditions, better deliveries than we have had in the 
past few years. Get good soil under and good roofs 
over our grafted roses and watch things grow!

the store was out of both plant and cut 
lilies. 

The W. L. Eock Flower Co. cut 32,000 
carnations in four days of Easter week 
and moved them all. The regular price, 
$2 a dozen, was charged. Long-stemmed 
roses were the only stock on which 
prices were advanced above normal for 
Easter by this firm. Forty per cent of 
its lilies were not in for Easter. These 
later plants were in time for weddings 
which were held March 30 and April 2. 
In fact, they were held back for these 
decorations. For the April wedding, 
700 lilies were used. Between 600 and 
800 lavender tulips were saved for the 
same occasion. 

Miss L. E. Boggess sold between 400 
and 500 plants for Easter. Like all the 
other florists, she could have sold many 
more lilies. 

B. Fred Collins died March 30 after 
a long illness following the influenza. 
He is survived by his mother and two 
sisters. Miss' Elizabeth and Miss Ella M. 
Collins. The latter is bookkeeper for 
• the Alpha Floral Co. 

A. NewoU found that some customers 
disliked the advertising of prices. It 
told too plainly the value of their gifts 
' to friends. In some cases where ad- 
vance orders had been placed for lilies 
they were changed at the last to other 
flowers because the newspapers an-

George Papadakos has returned from 
New York city, whither lie was called 
by the death of his nephew, George 
Contas. The young man had been in 
America only tliree months. He was

Nelson Jarrett has 10,000 21/2-inch 
ferns of different varieties and a num- 
ber of new and fancy varieties of 
])etunias for boxes. He will make a spe- 
cialty of petunias this season. About 
100 lilies that were an inch or two above 
ground were killed by the Easter storm. 
So were some verbenas, lantanas, lilacs 
and early cherries. 

Few coiiinuTcial places in the United 
States have as fine a lot of gloxinias as 
those Samuel Murray is showing. He 
had 500 bulbs this season. They are 
coming in earlier and doing better than 
in auv jircvious year. 

The Ilumfeld-Orear Floral Co. has

AGERATUM, Fraserii 

We feel confident in offering Ageratum "Fraserii" to our customers that we are 
offering what will be one of the most valuable acquisitions to the bedding plant line in 
recent years, that is a blue, a decided blue, that would be continually in bloom. In 
our trial grounds last summer "Fraserii" attracted more attention than any other 
bedding plant. It only grew about eight to ten inches high and was covered the entire 
season with what can easily be classed as immense trusses of flowers, as many of them 
were over 254 inches across, while the individual flower would be ?i of an inch in diame- 
ter. The plant spread about 1£ to IS inches across. It can easily be used with Alternan* 
theras as a border plant. 

Being an early bloomer and dwarf, compact grower, it makes an excellent pot plant. 
2-inch, $1.00 per doz.; $6.00 per 100. 3-inch, $1.50 per doz.; $10.00 per 100.

The Florists' Review 



April 7, 1921 



wci'Us with inrtucnza. At the saiue tiiiii' 
Jut little son, Vincent, had measles. 
After Easter Mr. Thomas was under the 
doctor's care for several days. All are 
recovering. 

E. A. llunifeld's business was double 
that of Easter in 1920. He v^holesalod 
some lilies and wished that he had them 
back wlien he sold out all he had kept 
for the retail store. Aside from a few 
hydrangeas and rose plants, all the 
stock was grown in his greenhouses near 
Independence. 

The Linwood Floral & Nursery Oo. 
cleaned up on everything Saturday eve- 
ning. 

W. J. Barnes received more telegraph 
orders, both going and coming, than he 
has on any other holiday. His local 
business was far ahead of that for 
Easter a year ago. Two furniture vans 
supplemented his regular delivery cars. 
Every fern and palm in his greenhouses 
was rented for church decorations. Mr. 
Barnes says he could have sold 250 more 
lilies if he could have obtained them. 
Lower prices helped business, he says. 
The cash sales were double those for 
any other big holiday. 

R. S. Brown & Son had a heavy Easter 
business and have been busy since. In- 
dications point toward a big spring 
trade in bedding stock. 

"While on his way honie Saturday 
night, March 26, M. E. Chandler, of the 
Chandler Landscape & Nursery Co., was 
caught in a wind storm which was of 
cyclonic proportions south of the city. 
The wind shield of his car became so 
clouded by rain that he stopped and got 
out. A car going in the opposite direc- 
tion struck him. He became entangled 
in some telephone wires, blown down by 
the storm, and was dragged for some 
distance before the driver knew that 
Mr. Chandler had been hit. He was 
taken home, where it was found that 
no bones were broken, but he was se- 
verely bruised and lacerated. He ex- 
pects to be out in a few davs.

Greenhouse Heating 

Subscribers are invited to write the 
editor of this department with regard to 
any details of greenhouse heating that 
are not understood. When information 
is desired regarding the capacity of boil- 
ers, or the amount of radiation required 
for a greenhouse, the needed temperatures 
should be stated in the inquiry, as well 
as the amount of glass in the side walls, 
and the dimensions and general arrange- 
ment of the greenhouses. It is often help- 
ful, also, to have a sketch showing the 
location of the houses. 

CHANGING HEATING SYSTEM. 

Would you advise us to plan a change 
of our heating system from hot water 
to steam? 

For ten years we liave used hot water 
for heating and i^has been satisfactory. 
The range has been gradually added to 
until the present. Tlie heating equip- 
ment is shown in green on the sketch. 
This consists of a 4y;.-incli headline 
flow and return, with nine 2-inch flows 
going to the far end of the houses, 
where each drops into three returns, 
sometimes four, which again flow into 
414-iuch main returns and thence back 
to tlie boiler. 

Tlie old boiler is a 20-horsepower, 
return tubular boiler, on which the 
openings have been enlarged, making 
it into a hot water boiler. This boiler 
would be worthless for steam, but could 
be used a few more years for hot 
water. Last year, in order to get more 
heating capacity, wo bought an addi- 
tional boiler of seventy-five horse- 
power, tlie Atlas steam boiler, on 
whii-h the state inspector will pass us 
for eighty i)ounds. We connected it 
in the battery with the smaller boiler, 
so as to have more heating capacity. 
If we are to continue using it for hot 
water we must enlarge the openings. 
We have hesit.-ited about changing it un- 
til we could be sure that we ought not 
to consider a change from hot water to 
steam. 

Roth boilers are located together in 
1!:;' cellar, so that the water level would 
1) • below the lowest returns in case 
steam were used. Therefore we sup- 
pose the system should work equally 
well for either hot water or steam. 
Would we have to remodel all our ])res- 
cnt heating pii)es in case of a change, 
or would the L>incli flow pipes with 
their 3-inch returns under each bench 
work all right for steam just as they 
are? They are valvcd on the 2-inch 
flow pipes onlv, with gate valves. 

As we understand it, the hot water 
plant should require less night atten- 
tion, but the steam would give us better 
forcing facilities for special crops; 
steam would require a night man, 
whereas wo now get along fairly well 
without one; the new radiation required 
for the new houses will cost us more 
for hot water than it would for steam, 
but what we are desirous of knowing 
definitelv is, would there be enough sav- 
ing now'and later to justify a change? _ 
On the drawing the black lines indi- 
cate the present building outlines; the 
green lines indicate the present heating 
pipes; the red lines indicate the heat- 
ing pipes that must be installed this 
summer and the yellow lines show that 
we are contemplating doubling the 
whole plant in the far future. The pic- 
ture sent will show the general arrange- 



Do you want true heating values for your money? Many florists, 

to their sorrow, have made the mistake of buying cast iron 

>^l>oilers, which, because of their ratings, appeared to be cheaper 

than the Kroeschell boiler. 

Tlie extravagant ratings of cast iron boilers are misieading, and 
have been the cause of much disappointment and serious troubieto 
many growers. The fuei waste is enormous when cast iron boiiers 
are used for commerciai purposes, such as greenhouse heating. 

Do not make a mistake when selecting your new boiler; get a Kroescheli and 
\ you will never be disappointed.

So Easy To Keep Your Boilers From 

Pitting This Summer 

Before you lay up your boilers for the summer, 

treat them with 





ASK MAC-HE KNOWS. 

SEALRITE 

The perfect seal for boiler settincrs. Makes 
Klass air-tiKht. No air gas or moisture 
can penetrate SEALRITE. Ask us about it. 

COATRITE 

Protects ALL equipment from rust and 
corrosion, acids and alkalis, eas and chem- 
ical fumes. Ask for free sample — enough 
to coat two square yards. 



By a present small outlay for SCALINE, you insure, your boilers against pit- 
ting and corrosion during the summer months. Can you afford not to do it? 
By treating them with SCALINE now, you make sure of finding your boilers 
spick and span wh^n you wish to fire up in a hurry in the late summer or 
early autumn. 

SCALINE works its way through the cracks in the scale until it reaches the 
boiler metal. It spreads out over the boiler surface, forcing all scale away, 
and forms a thin film that protects the boiler against corrosion and pitting — 
the enemies that, without SCALINE, would keep busy while the boilers 
were idle. 

In the autumn, wash away the ousted scale with clean feed water, and you are 
ready for the busy months. 

Ask us for Bulletin E 16 on the three Kingsbury products — SEALRITE, 
COATRITE, SCALINE.

meiit of the houses, looking from the 
south. You will understand that the 
house at the left had just been built 
before the late spring snow and has not 
yet been heated; the same is true of the 
south end of the house at the right and 
also of the narrow house not shown in 
the picture, which we are now erecting 
farther to the right. 

In deciding the best i)olicy for the 
future we must especially consider the 
efficiency of future operation, cost of 
immediate extensions of heating pipes 
shown by the red lines, and the possi- 
ble future cost in case we doubled the 
whole plant. Also the present size of 
the mains must be considered, the neces- 
sary changes in them that are required 
for either extension, as well as tlie fact 
that the little boiler is good for a few 
years, for hot water heat, but not for 
steam, Whereas the big boiler is good 
for either, and if the system is changed 
to steam the big boiler would probably 
carry the whole plant easily alone. 

Our experience with heating systems 
has been largely limited to this one; 
observations in various other green- 
houses; a study of what William Scott 
offers on heating in his Florists' Man- 
ual, and tables wliich give proper size of 
flows for hot water and steam, as well 
as the amount of radiation per square 
foot of glass. We have avoided going 
into further details of the system for 
the reason that if hot water is continued 
we will continue along a similar line 
to what we now have, simply extending 
it. If steam is decided upon we will 
take up the study anew, using as much 
of the present equipment as possible. 
M. V. C— Colo. 



We hardly know what to advise in 
this case. It has been fairlj* presented. 
It is unquestionable that piping a green- 
house for steam will cost but little more 
than one-half as much as when hot 
water piping is installed, so far as the 
price of the material is concerned, and

Destruction of boiler settings always starts in the joints. 
Mortar falls out and clinkers find a splendid place to cling. 
They fuse to the brick ends and when broken off take part 
of the brick with them. Patchwork repairs are necessary 
and frequent until finally a new setting is demanded.

settings eliminate all this trouble. No mortar to fall out — no crevices to 
disintegrate. PLIBRICO withstands temperature up to 3I()0°F. Its 
smooth, jointless surface leaves no place for clinkers to lodge. 

If your furnace does not give service it was not lined with PLIBRICO.

for mains in the new houses, but they 
may be used as return pipes. 

It should be stated that the fuel cost 
with steam heat is likely to be nearly 
twenty-five per cent more than with hot 
water, although some of this may be 
saved by being able, with a night fire- 
mtin, to use a cheaper grade of coal than 
with a hot water system, which is left 
seven or eight hours at night. 

The new boiler should be able to heat 
all of the houses now constructed, but 
you should tap it, providing either one 
6-inch or two 5-inch flow connections, 
with returns of the same size.

Late reports of Easter sales show that 
Newark florists did a fine business. The 
volume might have been greater had it 
not been for the general business de- 
pression, yet it was entirely satisfac- 
tory. Flowers were a little scarce the 
week after Easter, but are more plenti- 
ful this week. Prices kept up fairly 
well the week after Easter, but are 
dropping a little this week. 

The seed business is growing daily 
and those florists who sell seeds, rose 
bushes for outside planting and other 
shrubs and plants are now having in- 
creasingly large sales. 

Philips Bros., Broad street, near La- 
fayette, report an excellent Easter 
trade. They also report a number of 
weddings and considerable funeral 
•work. R. B. M.

The Market. 

Business conditions were exception- 
ally good from the middle of the week 
preceding Easter, and the florists were 
kept busy all the time. There was a 
scarcity of Easter lilies and also of 
roses. Easter morning arrived with one 
of the hardest rains of the year, which 
curtailed the buying for the day, but 
as most of the florists had just about 
cleaned up their stock, it did not affect 
the results much. 

Various Notes. 

Clarence Commincavish reports that 
his Easter business far exceeded that 
of other years. Mr. ComnvjircaVish se- 
cured the salesroom of^C. A. Bitncr, 
who had to discontinueAis business on 
account of the illness oi his wife. This 
gave him salesrooms on opposite sides 
of the city, an arrangeinent that p^/ived 
a success. 

Knecht & J"rc('se reponr-^Uieir

Frank Knecht and daughter, JV^ar):

and report having had a most enjo'

Richmond, Ind. 

E. C. Wenninghoflf had a large tradi 
in pot plants as well as cut flowers. 
Everything was sold out. Cut roses 
were especially hard to get. 

The Doswell Floral Co. seemed to 
have a specially large trade in corsage 
bouquets for Easter. Mrs. George Dos- 
well fell a few weeks ago and broke her 
hip, which has made it necessary for 
Miss Mary Doswell to be at home. Com- 
ing just at Easter time, this accident 
made the store force a little short.

AxJArX BLACK GLAZING CEKENT 



^ PRACTICAL glazing material made for application in a 
practical manner. No clumsy, slow working tools necessary — 
simply a putty bulber or two and a filling gun toload them — furnished /ree to users. 
Ajax Black Glazing Cement has been used throughout the country for several years 
with excellent results. To prospective purchasers we can give names of satisfied users in every green- 
house center — over a hundred names in Chicago locality alone. 

NOT AFFECTED BY EXTREME HEAT OR COLD 

Our product is a cement-like composition of Asbestos Fibres, and heavy, semi-drying hydro-carbon oils. Its 
exceptionally long life is due to the fact that it never thoroughly hardens like old fashioned white putty. The 
outside surface (which is exposed to the oxygen of the air) forms a resilient tough skin, below which the 

material remains soft and plastic. Because of this we guar- 
antee that the coldest weather will not cause it to become 
brittle or pull away. On the other hand our product is war- 
ranted not to sag or run in extremely hot weather due to its 
being inter-laced with the Asbestos Fibres. 

As Ajax Black Glazing Cement never thoroughly hard- 
ens, glass glazed with it can be shifted when desired without 
the loss of breakage that so often results when hard drying 
white putties are used. 

LOW COST 

Compared with the old fashioned White Lead putties, 
Ajax Black (ilazing Cement not only lasts years longer, but 
is a great deal lower in initial cost. 

One gallon is sufficient to glaze 500 lineal feet of sash. 

■ 

While primarily made to stop water leaks, so thoroufjhly 
does Ajax Black (Jlazing Cement hermetically seal up the sash, 
that it will soon pay for itself in the saving of heat that is other- 
wise lost through air voids. This fact has been demonstrated 
time and again, and we can prone it. 



FREE OFFER

plication of our prod-

demand seemed to turn more to plants 
than to cut flowers. 

The Blossom Floral Co. reports Easter 
business about thirty per cent greater 
than last year's. This firm experienced 
a shortage of plants, but had plenty of 
cut stock. 

W. J. & M. S. Vesey had a wonderful 
crop of carnations for Easter, but still 
they had to turn down orders in their 
wholesale department. They report a 
splendid Easter business. 

If one wanted to get into a busy place 
at Easter, he only had to go to Lanter- 
nier's. Everybody was kept on the 
jump, and the crowd was well taken 
care of. The firm has an attractive win- 
dow in yellow, which makes one stop 
and look. S. N. 



TORONTO, ONT. 



The Market. 

Eeports from the florists regarding 
this Easter's business sliow that gener- 
ally it was ahead of that of last year. 
This was made possible by the supply 
of stock available. The lilies sold early, 
but there was a good demand for other 
plants and cut flowers. Toronto florists 
are well satisfied with the business 
done. 

Since Easter there has been a great 
deal of stock available. All kinds of 
flowers can be supplied in quantities. 
There is a demand for design work and 
a few reception decorations. 

Various Notes. 

Several Toronto members of the F. 
T. D. will be at the Detroit meeting, 
April 11. An endeavor will be made to 
have the Toronto convention extended 
to three days.

G. M. Geraghty is to be congratulated 
on the Easter advertising. As chairman 
of the Florists' Club publicity commit- 
tee he accomplished a great deal. Tlie 
Easter advertising is being favorably 
commented upon. 

Toronto florists attended the matinee 
at the Eoyal Alexandra theater, April 
1. All the artists were given baskets 
of flowers and the chorus girls corsages. 



A test case as to whether or not the 
retail florists shall be listed as manu- 
facturers and be required to pay the two 
per cent war tax is being tried at Ot- 
tawa. In the meantime no license is 
needed, nor is it necessary to collect the 
tax. So far the florists have objected 
to collecting the tax as manufacturers 
and have decided to do nothing regard- 
ing its collection. J. J. H.

CYPRESS FOR STAKES 
AND CYPRESS FOR LABELS 



A tree or plant Label is a small matter, just a thin strip of wood with notches near one 
end. A whole pocketful may be bought with a penny or two, yet the cost of them counts in 
the year's expenditures. And there's no need in buying new each year, unless you really pre- 
fer to spend your money. Get them of Cypress and they will last. So with stakes — they are 
made of Cypress and cost little more than those made of woods that begin to rot as soon as 
they are placed in the soil. Every dollar you save in these small matters stays in the bank to 
help swell your balance. 

JUST ONE TESTIMONIAL 

C. E. Robbins, 4 Vanden Bosch Avenue, Auburn, N. Y., writes: "My attention was first drawn to 
Cypress several years ago by using some of it for dahlia stakes, aloftg with some pine, etc., and after the 
pine had rotted away the Cypress showed no sign of decay. Since then I have used it for boats and 
canoes, and it has been very satisfactory." This is a small matter, but it is worth while to listen to the 
experience of others. 

HELP YOURSELF TO THE BOOKS 

Vol. 3 is a greenhouse story. Vols. 4 and 20 are for farmers, containing plans for all sorts of farm 
outbuildings. Vol. 36 is the Carpentry Book, and 37 is the big Silo Book. All are profusely illustrated.

SEATTLE NOTES. 

IContinueil from pajfc tH.l 

comiufi; on and recent weather condi- 
tions have been more than favorable. 
Two new houses were recently erected. 

Eosaia Bros, report a most satisfac- 
tory Easter trade, selling all of their 
lilies and larger quantities of potted 
spring offerings than has been the case 
in previous seasons. This firm last week 
handled a large wedding decoration at 
the New Washington hotel, using Easter 
lilies, fruit blossoms and Ophelia roses 
to produce a seasonable effect. The 
bride 's bouquet used in the Easter wed- 
ding display of one of the larger stores 
was made by Robert Simmons, using 
cattlcyas and lilies of the valley. 

W. H. Brown, of Brown's A'ictoria 
Nurseries, Victoria, B. C, was a visitor 
last week. He states his firm shipped 
large quantities of daffodils during 
March. General business conditions 
have ruled good, and satisfactory re- 
sults are anticipated from the 70,000 
feet this firm has under glass at this 
time. 

The Burns Floral Co. has installed a 
set of attractive new window drapes, 
using gray stock with green trimmings. 
So thoroughly did this shop clean up its 
sujjply of Easter lilies that on Sunday 
calls had to be made on other dealers 
to fill late shipping orders. 

Ray. G. Slicker, northwestern repre- 
sentative of the A. L. Randall Co., Chi- 
cago, is calling on the British Columbia 
trade at present. 

Kenney 's Home of Flowers is showing 
some fine home-grown snapdragons and 
also better deliveries of locally grown 
Ophelia roses. William Goldsbary 
spent a part of last week in British 
Columbia on a business trip, making the 
journey by automobile.

The Rorists' Review 



Aphil 7, 1921 



found more people interested in potted 
plants this year than cut flowers, prob- 
ably because the former appeal to the 
sense of economy in the buyer. 

The Woodlawn Flower Shop's force 
was more than trebled for Easter. The 
largest Easter stock yet handled was 
easily cared for in the large floor space 
available, and total sales for the year 
exceeded those of 1920. A good-sized 
increase on both incoming and outgoing 
telegraph orders was one of the satisfy- 
ing developments. 

The Pinehurst Floral Shop reports 
good results from both the main store 
and the branch opened for Easter week, 
with the public most interested in the 
medium-priced offerings. 

C. H. Benson, Kirkland, has been de- 
livering some of the finest carnations 
seen here this season, outside of Laddie, 
and is also bringing in sweet peas much 
better than the average. Finely col- 
ored snapdragons are still another of 
his recent offerings. 

McCoy's was most successful in mov- 
ing hydrangeas at Easter time and is 
able to report deliveries equal to any- 
thing yet shown here. Medium-priced 
lilies sold freely, most of the customers 
buying this year by a price limit in- 
stead of purchasing according to the 
number of blooms desired. 

Felix Eosaia handled a larger supply 
of lilies this year than last and reports 
an entirely satisfactory business. 

Novelty baskets combining Easter 
lilies and other spring flowers proved 
excellent sellers with the trade of the 
Hollywood Gardens and some high- 
priced items were moved as well. Some 
increase is noted in the cut of roses at 
the greenhouses and deliveries of out- 
door spring offerings are increasing 
daily. 

The Orpheum Floral Co. has been 
showing some of the best of the late 
tulips, with good sales results secured 
from the attractive window displays 
made of such stock. H. M.

His store, at 60 East Gay street, con- 
tains a good line of ferns, blooming

PELARGONIUM EASTER GREETING. 

Do you blame us for having a little pride in 
being the original introducers of this sterling 
novelty? It has stood the test and increased 
in popularity. 

Our Mothers' day 4-ln. to be shipped about 
April 20, will make you money; better place 
your order at 20c. The 3-in., if ordered soon and 
shifted will be fine for that holiday, as they are 
strong and vigorous; up to May 1 they will be 
desirable for Memorial day; they are yoars at 
lie. The 2^-in. will make you money no matter 
how treated, but there is nothing gained by de- 
lay; your after-Easter space can be filled with 
them very profitably; ready to slilp to you now 
at 8c. The small buyer is on the same basis 
as the large. 

Don't forget we have been, are and will be 
headquarters for Easter Greeting in all season- 
able sizes. When you become acquainted with 
our standard of quality and {>acklng, then you 
will know where to send your orders. It costs 
money to talk in this column, so, in a nut shell, 
when you think of Easter Greeting, think of

The Florists' Review 



April 7, 1921 



TO COBBECT S0X7B LAND. 

Could you give advice as to how to 
prevent ground outdoors from getting 
sourt This ground is heavy loam and I 
have to keep the cultivator going in 
order to keep it from getting a green 
crust on top. Would you advise a top- 
dressing of lime and, if so, what kind 
of lime and how much to an acre and 
when? Would lime be beneficial in an 
orchard, lawn and alfalfa field? 

N. T.— Wis. 

The presence of green slime is a sure 
sign of acidity in the soil. Lime is the 
best correcting agency known. Fall 
is the best time to use it, lightly 
scratching it in after it is broadcasted. 
For your case, use it in early spring 
and harrow it in. Do not use manure 
at the same time, as the lime releases 
too much of the nitrogen into the at- 
mosphere. An application of 4,000 
pounds of ground lime per acre is rec- 
ommended, or if you use air-slaked lime 
one-half of that weight will sufftce. A 
liberal surface dressing of fine gravel, 
coarse sand or fine coal cinders would 
improve your land and help to make it 
more porous. Also, are you sure it does 
not need draining? Lime is excellent 
in an orchard. On a lawn it is spe- 
cially good where moss and such weeds 
as sorrel are appearing. For alfalfa 
lime is quite necessary. Use it prefer- 
ably in fall. Before applying it plow 
your land. Then let it lie rough over 
winter. This in itself will help to 
sweeten it and partly correct acidity. 
C. W. 

TREATING RED SPIDER. 

I should like some information about 
using salt water on carnations for red 
spider. After advertised insecticides 
failed, I started to use salt water as di- 
rected in The Review — one 3-inch pot of 
salt to one gallon of water. This seemed 
to do good. I spray them with this mix- 
ture once a week. Is that often enough? 
Also, are the salt crystals left on the 
leaves injurious to the plants? Should 
they be washed off! A. L. — Mo. 



Spraying with salt water once a week 
should keep your plants free from red 
spider, provided they are clean to start 
with. If they are badly infested, 1 
should suggest that you spray with salt 
water once a week and then syringe with 
clear water and all the force at your 
command, about midway between the 
salt sprayings. Keep this up until the 
plants are clean. The salt crystals will

SOWING PRIMULAS. 

"What is considered the best method 
of sowing seed of Primula malacoides 
and obonica and when is the best time? 

N. R.— Del. 



Use well drained pans of light, sandy 
soil for primulas. Leaf-mold should 
form the bulk of the compost. Finely 
screen tlic upper soil and barely cover 
the seed with sand, gently pressing it 
after sowing. Cover the pans with 
sheets of glass and use paper over this 
until the seedlings appear. Then re- 
move the glass; water carefully through 
a fine rose, and never allow the soil to 
become dry. Sow Primula obconica 
now if you want the plants for Christ- 
mas and later. P. malacoides is a rapid

There is some reason why the country's ftreatest growers choose 
Foley Houses There is some reason why Foley Houses are so often 
solH without any competition. Those reasons are that Foley Houses 
give greater service— and greater satisfaction for every dollar invested. 

Foley Houses are made of the best — most carefully selected ma- 



terials: the design is correct— and the fitting is accurate; therefore a 
Foley House is tight to start— stays tight— is e, sy to heat and out-

while you wait 



the sands of 1921 
are running 
ceaselessly 



There are only 8760 hours in a year. Of these 2228 have 
already passed. That leaves but 6532, and you'll spend 
close to 2266 of these in bed. But what of the remaining 
4266? 

In them you must build for yourself whatever success you 
register for the year. And the degree of this success will 
depend to a great extent on the amount of glass you add to 
your range, if a grower, or the improvements you make in 
your store, if a retailer. And that being so, have you taken 
the first step yet? 

If you haven't, write to us for an estimate before another 
one of these priceless hours slips beyond your reach.

THE problems of a Retail Florist are many and difficult, but when he also gets 
into the wholesale growing he certainly has a whale of a lot of things to look 
out for. Now, when it comes to building greenhouses, this same florist really 
has not the time to look after the building details. 

It therefore becomes necessary for him to get hold of a reputable, reliable greenhouse 
manufacturing and building concern, to whom he can safely leave all the details of the 
work and know when the building is finished, that he has an honest, modern and 
economical greenhouse, cleverly designed and substantially constructed. 

The logical company to turn to in a case of this kind is "Moninger's," because they 
have proved their worth by the thousands of greenhouses they have built all over 
the country. 

May w^e have the pleasure of your inquiry?

THE WALKER HOUSE 
AT ST. CATHERINES, CANADA 



Whon we opened our ofBco in Canada a few years aKo and ornanized 
an independent Canadian company, many a murmur came to us 
that we were trying to get blood out of a turnip, 

Mo3t of liie big growers, Mr. Dunlopevcepted. said thatour houses 
were altogether too good for the Canailian florist business. It was 
allrisht for wealthy private people, but they would bankrupt a 
grower. 

It wasn't long, however, before a lot of the growers began to see 
that, what a house cost them to buy was one thing. What it con- 
tinued to cost them to keep it in repair was nuile another. 

They, oni" by one. began to appreciate that our con ^truction was 
particularly adapted for standing their vigorous climate. Iteing 
so light, in spito of their great strength, they gi(!w better flowers. 



which is a mighty importint thing with the short days of their 
long winters. 

Finally. The Dale Estate, which is the largest greenhouse plantin 
Canada, ordered two big houses followed by two more. 
This lastyeai- we put up a splendid big one for Walker at St. Cath- 
erines, where our factory is located. 
It is one of our stock commercial houses, 52 feet wide. 
Walker says "it's lignter than daylight"; and that he "expects his 
great-grandchildren to be crowing flowers in it." AlhO. that it 
has increased his profits in greater proportion than any house 
he has built. 

Which tells you what Walker thinks of his house, better than we 
could if we talked for an hour. 
I Aud now how about you— ready to talk building':'

Improved Beauty 

TISSUE PAPER 

A Superior Wrapping Tissue Developed by A. L. Randall Company 




Extra Strong 



Improved Beauty Tissue Paper has long 
been recognized as a superior article. Now, 
by a mo^ favorable contradl, we can offer 
it to the trade at a price so low it seems 
a miracle. Along with this record-breaking 
cut in cost is the very higher quality. Im- 
proved Beauty Tissue is extra ^rong — un- 
usually white — highly glazed — moi^ure 
proof and economical to use. 

A perfedt produdt at a bargciin price. 




Unusually White 




Highly Glazed 



Economical 




This is an actual photograph of a bundle 
of Randall's Improved Beauty Tissue. It 
contains 4000 sheets of clean, white, ^rong 
tissue, put up in ten reams of 400 sheets 
each. These sheets measure 24x36-inch. 
Note some wrapping tissue is only 20x30- 
inch. Thus Improved Beauty contains 43% 
more paper per sheet than the smaller size.

Clerk B has made a cash sale for $1.00 



The indication at the top of an up-to-date National 
Cash Register gives publicity to every transaction. 
The merchant, the clerk, and the customer see this 
record. 

This prevents mistakes in price and in making change. 
It removes temptation. 

The record sho^vn in the indication is printed on a 
strip of paper v^hich is locked up inside the register. 
This record also is printed on a receipt for the customer. 

The amounts indicated and printed are added into 
totals which show^, at a glance, ( I ) the total business 
handled by each clerk, and (2) the total of each kind 
of transaction. 

This assures the merchant that every sale is handled 
accurately. It also assures him of accurate records 
which give him control of his business. 



This is the indication. "Ca" 
shows it was a cash sale. 
"B" is the clerk's initial. 
" 1 .00" is the price. 

Charge sales are indicated 
by "Ch," received on ac- 
count by "Re," and paid 
out transactions by "Pd." 

The same indication shows 
on both front and back of 
the register. 



We make cash refers ix eveiy line of buianess.IMced $75 and up.

AMERICAN LEGION ROSE 

Record Up to Date: Silver Medal, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, November, 1920. 

First Prize, New Variety, not Disseminated, November, 1920. 
Silver Medal, International Rose Show, New York, 1921. 

A new color, Cerise, said to be by the retailers of 
New York, the most brilliant color on exhibition. 

Free from Black Spot and Mildew and a Wonderful Producer 

What one of our Wholesale Commission Men says about it: 

Mr. Edward Towill, 
Roslyn, Penna. 

Dear Sir: 

We were particularly pleased with your new rose the "American 
Legion," and our tjnly regret was that we did not have more of them. 
The people that handled them were very much pleased, and I might 
suggest that it would be $. good proposition if you would plant your 
whole place with that variety for another year. 

You will note the price it brought came very close to that of 

the "American Beauty," and being such a prolific producer, it 

certainly should be a money-maker. ^ , ^ 

*' "^ Yours very truly, 

EDWARD RE ID. 

What one of our largest Retailers says of it: 

Mr. Edward Towill, 
Roslyn, Penna. 

Dear Sir: 

Just a word to tell you how pleased we are with your new 
Rose, "American Legion." We have been handling cut flowers of it 
since last fall when you commenced putting them on the market, and 
we are very much impressed with the lovely bright color, and more 
so with its keeping qualities--and what is more to the point, our 
customers buy it and like it and commend it to us. We thought the 
flowers on the plant were beautiful when we were at your place just 
before Christmas, and feel sure you have a coming rose. 

Yours very truly,

RISING COST OF ^ 

^ ROSE GROWING 

Have you figures on the production of your greenhouse crops, so that 
you know ivhat each costs and tvhich are the profitable ones? Much enlight- 
enment may he obtained by a study of such figures and their compariso^i 
with those of other growers. Here are one rose grower's costs. 




VERY florist knows that 
it costs more to grow a 
rose now than it did three 
years ago. Yes, whether 
he be retailer, wholesaler 
or grower, lie knows that. 
And the public knows it, 
too. The public has been 
doing some complaining 
about it from time to 
time. Florists, on their part, have been 
doing some explaining about it from 
time to time, as well. But not many 
knew just how to explain it, save in 
general terms, because they had no 
specific figures which proved their 
statements. Not that anyone doubted 
their statements; that's not the point. 
But figures speak louder than mere 
words and convince more people from 
Missouri than does the most plausible 
language a florist can wield. 

Statistics Convince. 

Charged with amassing enormous 
profits through a near-monopoly of the 
business, the meat packers have pub- 
lished figures in the newspapers 
throughout the coun- 
try to counteract such 
statements. Favorite 
among their charts is 
that of the dollar di- 
vided according to the 
costs of putting the 
packers' products on 
to the market. Only 
a thin little slice — a 
puny, tiny little slice 
— is marked ' ' profits. ' ' 
You and I have never 
had a chance to verify 
tliose figures. We have 
never asked the pack- 
ers if those com])uted 
costs were really cor- 
rect. But we have 
seen that subdivided 
dollar and glanced 
over the figures so fre- 
(luontly tiiat we are 
disposed to praise the 
packers, instead o f 
abusing them, for creating a business 
so enormous tliat they can give ns our 
daily meat with so little profit for 
themselves. Such is the achievement 
of statistics! 

But there is more to a knowledge of 
production costs than a means of de- 
fense from criticism. They enable us 
to know whither our money goes and 
whence our i)rofits come. Moreover, 
they would, if some florists had them, 
tell why the profits didn't come, for 
there are still some who ar;- m iking a 



To enable growers everywhere 
to compare production costs and 
derive the benefits to be obtained 
from their study, the Editor of 
The Review invites florists in 
every state to send him figures 
such as those presented here, on 
other crops as well as roses, giv- 
ing assurance that all such com- 
munications will be treated as 
strictly confidential. 



"living" when they ought, in view of 
their investment and their efforts, to 
make considerably more. The story is 
still current of the Hebraic haberdasher 
who sold his customer shirts, sox, ties,

duction costs are no better iiiforiiuHl, 
if they are veracious, as to where they 
make their profit than was the price- 
juggling Jew. 

The grower cannot say whether he 
is getting a fair price for his product 
unless he knows the amount of money 
he puts into his greenhouses and the 
amount of money he takes out, and 
knows it in a detailed way. It is pos- 
sible that one item shows a good profit 
while another makes a decided loss. 
Production cost figures would show 



how to increase the profits by discard- 
ing the unprofitable varieties and 
growing the most paying ones instead. 
Such figures require more work of the 
already overworked grower, says he. 
But some growers could pay a book- 
keeper to keep such figures with the 
money he loses by not knowing them! 
On this page appears a table showing 
how the costs increased on certain 
varieties at the range of a rose grower 
in the middle west from 1918 to 1921. 
He has a large range and ships all his 
flowers to a commission house. He has, 
no doubt, made changes in the three 
years. His figures show it. He grows 
fewer of the old varieties, since he has 
added Premier and Columbia to his 
plantings. Too close details of his 
plantings cannot be given, for the 
figures here used are given in confi- 
dence, and it is not wished to identify 
the grower without his willingness to 
be known. 

Three Years' Rise. 

The table on this page shows that the 
varieties of roses named, with the excep- 
tion of the two not 
grown in 1918, have 
increased in wholesale 
cost, on an average, 

71.6 per cent. The 
range is from C.j.9 to 

83.7 per cent, accord- 
ing to variety. Here 
are figures that mean 
something. How were 
they obtained ? 

Tliis rose grower 
keeps a record of liis 
expenses, subdividing 
tluMii into various 
groups, HO that at the 
end of the year, or at 
any time during the 
year, he is able to 
know what he is buy- 
ing in comparison with 
previous years, in 
j)rice and in cjuantity. 
Such is the record of 
his outgo. 
As his roses are cut for shipment to 
the wholesale house, count is kept of 
each variety. At the end of the 
month or year, he knows how many 
blooms he has cut. Dividing the total 
by the nuinljer of jilants of a variety, 
he arrives at the yield per plant. Thus 
he knows whether a variety is a large 
or small producer, not in a general 
way, but in actual figures. The price 
the grower must receive for a certain 
rose depends to a large extent upon its 
yield of blooms per plant.

At the end of the year the totiil 
operating costs, plus depreciation 
charges and a fair interest on invest- 
ment, say six per cent, are divided by 
tlie number of square feet of bench 
space. The result is the cost per 
square foot to grow the roses named. 
Some roses are set more closely than 
others, so that against a certain num- 
ber of plants of one variety a larger 
total of square-foot cost may be 
charged than against the same number 
of another variety. In the table on 
this page is shown the cost ])or square 
foot of bench space arrived at by this 
method of calculation. If one wishes 
to arrive at a more exact method of 
comparing his greenhouse costs with 
those of another grower, he may divid(> 
by the number of square feet of house 
space, instead of by the number of 
square feet of bench space. The latter 
calculation was not carried out in 1918; 
so the comparisons here made are on 
the basis of square feet of bench 
space. 

If the cost per plant has been ar- 
rived at, one has only to divide it by 
the average number of blooms per 
plant cut during the year, and he has 
the price per bloom the grower should 
receive from the wholesaler. This 



figure should be greater, of cotirse, for 
longer-stemmed flowers and, conse- 
quently, less for shorter ones. During 
the cold months, costs will be relatively 
greater and prices received should be 
higher than in the warmer months, 
when production is heav.ier. 

What Chart Shows. 

The diart at the top of this page 
jift'ords easy comprehension of where 
tlie increased cost occurred in this 
grower 's range. Wages, of course, were 
the biggest item. But, whereas they 
were a little more than twice the next 
largest item in 1918, in 1921 they sire 
nearly three times as great. Plants 
and seeds show an increase of 2.33% 
per cent, the largest in percentage of 
any on the list. Some items show a 
decrease — namely, general expenses, 
fertilizers, boxes and express, and state 
taxes — doubtless due to measures of 
economy or to local conditions. 

Naturally, these figures can only be 
employed as approximate estimates, 
since coal was carried over from one 
year to the next, v;irious changes were 
made at the range in the three years 
and other conditions ])revailed of which 
the bare statistics give no inkling. 
Moreover, these figures must be revised 
to suit today. For sucli estimates must 
necessarily cover a considerable period 
of time to afford a fair average. Wages 
have gone down somewhat. Coal is 
cheaper, while this grower was using 
fuel that cost the highest prices when 
the 1921 calcul.-itions were made. Other 
items, it will l)e readily noted, have 
diminislied in cost, since the period 
that afforded the 1921 estimate, al- 
though the decrease as yt't is 7iot great. 

What Are Your Figures? 

Each grower can derive certain con- 
clusions regarding his own costs after 
a study of the figures presented in these 
accompanying tables. It will afford 
the trade better opportunity to find 
a real production basis, if such figures 
may be had from many growers' estab- 
lishments, whether they are devoted to 
roses, carnations, sweet peas, or to sev- 
eral items. The writer hopes that 
growers, seeing the possible benefit to 
be derived by this comparative study,

PLANTS AROUND GRAVES. 

Can .you tell me what plants are suit- 
able for borders around graves? 

A. D. F.— Neb. 



I presume the inquirer means jilants 
for summer planting and not hardy or 
perennial plants. There are a number 
that can be used for this purpose; in 
fact, nearl.y all of the so-called dwarf 
bedding plants are used in one style or 
another as borders for graves and lots 
in large cemeteries. They are gener- 
ally used in combinations. The alternan- 
thera and echeveria are used together, 
the echeveria generally forming the 
border for the alternanthera. Madame 
Salleroi geranium is also extensively 
used, as are ageratum, santolina, sweet 
alyssum, achyranthes, dusty miller and 
the dwarf varieties of coleus. M. P. 



TREATING LEAF SCALE. 

Can you tell me what is the matter 
with the leaf I am sending you? What 
is the remedy for the trouble and how 
long will it take to get the stock in 
good condition after the trouble dis- 
appears? H. E. H.— N. Y, 



The leaf in question was covered with 
brown scale and, in addition, seemed to 
be browning around the edges. Spra.y 
through a fine misty nozzle with a soap 
spray, using any of the good standard 
remedies for scale. Printed directions 
come on all cans. Remove the worst af- 
fected leaves, water carefully and re- 
member that this plant should not be 
sprayed over any more than is absolute- 
l.v necessary. C. W. 



Oklahoma City, Okla. — Furrow & Co., 
of Guthrie, have leased one of the most 
prominent and highest-priced locations 
in this city for a term of eight .vears and 
will open a first-class retail store about 
May 2. The address is 205 West Main 
street, and they will have everything in 
keeping with the location. The display 
refrigerator is being built for them by 
H. Erlich & Son, of St. Joseph, Mo. Fur- 
row & Co. also are building here a green- 
house 300 feet long, to serve as the 
nucleus for a new range. It is the plan 
to remove a part of the Guthrie range 
to the new place next summer, leaving 
the balance of the glass at Guthrie to 
take care of the nice retail business be- 
ing done there.

BOSTON'S SPRING SHOW. 



Boses and Orchids Features. 

Tlic combined exhibitions of the 
American Hose Society and Massachu- 
setts Horticultural Society brought out 
a show which eclipsed even the big one 
held a year ago, when orchids were the 
star feature. The halls were all incon- 
veniently crowded with exhibits. The 
arrangement was most excellent and 
superior to that seen at any preceding 
show, while the wide publicity given 
brought out a record attendance even 
with an admission fee of $1. More vis- 
itors from a distance attended than 
ever before and this in spite of the fact 
that the season is an unusually ad- 
vanced one and trade and private 
growers arc unusually busy. 

The three star features of the show 
were roses, orchids and azaleas. Eoses 
were of grand quality, although the 
hot Aveather preceding the exhibition 
made it impossible for some New York 
and New Jersey growers to compete. 
Orchids were numerous and of magnifi- 
cent quality. The staging of these 
brought forth much praise. Visitors 
considered the showing of these de- 
cidedly ahead of that seen at the great 
show in March, 1920. Azaleas were 
a great feature and it was thought by 
many that both these and orchids out- 
classed similar displays made in New 
York. The advanced season materially 
reduced the exhibits of acacias, cinera- 
rias, cyclamens, bulbous plants and 
sehizanthus, but hydrangeas, rhodo- 
dendrons, carnations, sweet peas and 
ericas were fine. 

The Boses. 

Public interest in roses was never at 
a higher jntch in Boston than during 
■.last week, and although the American 
Rose Society has had larger displays, 
yetj considering the warm season, the 
lateness of the show date and other 
factors, the displays of both plants and 
cut flowers were wonderfully fine. 

For fifty Mme. Butterfly, there was a 
strong entry and the Florex Gardens 
.iust won from the William H. Elliott 
€o. 

For fifty Crusader, Thomas Roland 
was first, with the Montgomery Rose 
Co. a close second. For fifty Russell, 
the Montgomery Rose Co. won witli 
perfect flowers. 

For fifty Double Wliite Killarney, 
Cromwell Gardens won, after a close 
tussle with Florex Gardens. 

For fifty Frank W. Dunlop. Florex 
Gardens were the winners. For fifty 
Hadley, some grand vases were shown. 
Thomas Roland won with a glorious 
vase and the Montgomery Rose Co. 
was second. For fifty Pilgrim, the 
Montgomery Rose Co. was first witli a 
beautiful vase. 

For fifty Premier, the Florex Gardens 
were not "to be denied; Cromwell Gar- 
dens was second. For fifty Ophelia, 
the Cromwell Gardens were first and 
the Bedford Floral Co. was second. For 
fift}' any other pink variety, Tliomas 



Roland won with handsome Columbia 
and the Florex Gardens were second. 

Group of Cut Boses. 

April 8 came the competition for a 
group of cut roses to cover 300 square 
feet, arranged for effect. Thomas Ro- 
land won the $500 prize with a grand 
lot of flowers artistically arranged by 
B. F. Letson. His varieties included 
Crusader, Hadley, Mrs. Aaron Ward, 
Ophelia, Premier, Columbia, Double 
White Killarney. Cromwell Gardens 
were second with a grand collection 
tastefully arranged by Sidney Hoff- 
man. A glorious vase of Premier held 
the place of honor and Columbia, 
Double White Killarney and Pilgrim 
were also good. An absence of scarlet 
and yellowy flowers somewhat handi- 
capped this beautiful group. 

John H. Dunlop brought along a 
wonderful vase of Frank W. Dunloj) 
and received a silver medal for his 
beautiful new pink seedling. Walter 
Hunnewell, T. D. Hatfield, superintend- 
ent, received a silver medal for a 
group of the new yellow Rosa Hugonis, 
finely flowered. 

Boland's Bose Garden Wins. 

Thomas Roland received the .$1,00(1 
jirize for the best rose garden ;md it 
showed the higliest artistic skill. 
Tausendschoen roses covered the 
fences, and these and other climbers, 
including Paul's Scarlet Climber, 
adorned the temple-like tea house. 
Beds of hybrid teas in all the best 
varieties, including Los Angeles, Mme. 
Edouard Herriot, Mrs. A. Ward, W. J. 
Ringe, Pharisaer and some twenty-five 
other varieties, were all planted in beds; 
■•ill the pots were invisible. Some 
lovely standards of White Dorothy 
Perkins and trained s])ecimens of 
Tausendschoen and other varieties 



were used to excellent advantage. The 
verdant grass paths set the flowers off 
beautifully. This garden was con- 
stantly surrounded by an admiring 
crowd of persons who were busy making 
notes and copying down the names of 
varieties shown. 

The Breck-Robinson Co. received a 
gold medal for a garden sunken and 
nearly oval in shape, mainly planted 
with polyantha varieties, with grass 
paths, neat little rest houses, an elec- 
tric fountain in the center and suit- 
able garden furniture. The garden, de- 
signed by Miss Babcock, of the firm's 
landscape department, was well con- 
ceived and received hosts of com- 
pliments. 

Bose Plants. 

For the best display of rose plants, 
comprising all classes, Thomas Roland 
won. For the best display arranged 
for effect, the W. W. Edgar Co. won, 
with Thomas Roland a close second. 
Mr. Roland won with his arbor ar 
rangement of climbing roses and the 
W. W. Edgar Co. had the best arch 
arrangement. Tausendschoen was 

mainly used in both exhibits. 

For three specimen climbing roses, 
Thomas Roland was first. W. A. Manda 
had the best group of dwarf polyantha 
roses. The cut hybrid perpetual roses 
in the display from James Marlborough, 
superintendent to Thomas E. Proctor, 
were of grand quality, especially Frau 
Karl Druschki, Mrs. Sliarman-Craw- 
ford, Mrs. John Laing and Magna 
Cliarta. 

Edward Towill, Roslyii, Pa., sent an 
excellent vase of American Legion, 
whit'li received favorable notice. 

The Orchids. 

Tlie orchid display was even finer 
than a year ago and included many
