HE foremost thought in compiHng this catalogue was to 
secure accurate illustrations. To accomplish this, over 
one year's time was consumed by our own staff of men, 
experienced in fruits and flowers and conversant with 
the needs of the buying public, and all possible means 
at the command of photography and color printing 
have been used to make them exact reproductions. 

We have prepared these illustrations with the 
thought in mind that technical descriptions, however 
simply written, are not always easily understood and 
that the readiest means of comparison and identification 
for the average planter would be found in color work 
of this kind. 

No expense has been spared in the attempt to make 
the plates the best possible with the present knowledge 
of reproduction in color. Varieties considered import- 
ant from various standpoints are pictured, simplifying 
the selection of fruits of proven merit for the home or 
orchard, and ornamentals for beautifying purposes. 

In issuing this book (in many respects the only one 
of its kind ever published), we believe that our efiorts will 
be appreciated by our patrons who maybe guided in mak- 
ing their purchases from these illustrations true to nature.

E wish to express our appreciation of the 
vakiahle advice and assistance generously 
given us by Professors Hedrick and Tay- 
lor, Pomologists at the New York Agricul- 
tural Experiment Station, and Mr. John 
Dunbar, Superintendent of our Rochester 
Parks, the widely known authority on trees and 

We are indebted to the Experiment Station, the 
Rochester Parks, the Webster Grange, and the Mon- 
roe County Farm Bureau for many specimens of fruit, 
shrubs, roses, etc., from which these photographs 
were made ; also to the Post Express Printing Com- 
pany for their skill in making the color plates and 
painstaking work in the printing and mechanical con- 
struction of the book. 




O other fruit occupies the commanding position of the Apple, 

whether it be for size, form or color, in flavor sweet or sour, in 
crispness or tenderness. It will in some variety or other suit 
every taste. 

The Apple is the leading orchard fruit of America. Its 
pre-eminent merits are: that it thrives everywhere; it can be 
had in the fresh state throughout the year; it is more adaptable to trans- 
portation than any other fruit; it is the handsomest and best flavored of our 
fruits; the trees are easy to care for, long-lived and are very productive; it 
serves the greatest variety of uses about homes; and it is the best known, 
most widely distributed, and has the greatest number of varieties of any fruit. 

In planting for commercial 
purposes, it is not policy to set 
out too many varieties, but bet- 
ter to confine the planting to 
sorts that can be harvested in 
rotation, thus facilitating ship- 
ping and curtailing expenses, 
time and labor. 

Buyers will generally be 
found willing to give a better 
price per barrel where a good 
quantity of each variety can he 
had than where there are a 
large number of varieties and 
only a few of each. 

An orchard of Apples will be an unfailing source of income. A Chase Apple 
orchard insures you from want Just at a time when you most need it. 

The Apple orchard ought to be a profitable corner in every farm instead of 
being as it is so often, abitofwaste land which brings no satisfaction or revenue. 

There is another very important consideration in the fact that cold 
storage has made it possible to keep Apples for months. That makes them 
as much a staple crop as corn and wheat and msures a good market for them.

HE Pear is the longest-lived of our fruits; it is the least particu- 

lar as to soil; it endures drouth with greater fortitude;- it can 
stand more water about its roots than any other fruit. Yet the 
Pear repays good care; no fruit responds more generously and 
more profitably to proper treatment. Of all fruits the Pear is 
most varied in shape, color and quality. It is in greater de- 
mand for canning than any other fruit. Its slowness in ripening after pick- 
ing enables it to be marketed with deliberation, hence it is a profitable 
market fruit. 

To those who have but a limited amount of ground there is no fruit 
tree that will give quicker and better returns than Dwarf Pears. They 
come into bearing the third or fourth year, several seasons ahead of the 
Standards, occupy but little ground and are excellent bearers when prop- 
erly cared for. The best varieties of Dwarf Pears are Duchess, Bartlett, 
Flemish Beauty, Beurre De Anjou and Seckel. 

f.e -\^^^:^i^^ 

The Pear, especially in New York and ?iew England, is often grown on 
the same farm with the Apple and is considered quite as profitable a crop. 

Raisinj5 Pears is a business that should not be overlooked by the farmer 
with land space that can be devoted to orchard plantings. The fruit is to 
be relied upon nearly as much as the Apple, will keep about as well and in 
certain respects is a great deal more delicious. It is good to eat raw, pre- 
served, canned or evaporated, and may be had on the table in any of these 
forms almost the whole year round. 

Standard Pears for orchard purposes should be planted 25 feet apart 
each way, which would require seventy trees to the acre. The returns on 
an investment of this kind are usually very satisfactory, and not only that, 
the trees will bear for years and years after other fruits set out at the same 
time have grown old and died. 

For commercial purposes there is probably no more money to be made 
on any other variety than on a Standard KiefTer Pear planting. 

There are many good sorts of Pears. Bartlett is the favorite now with 
KiefTer a close second. Seckel is the standard in quality. Anjou is one of 
the best all-around pears. Duchess is the largest in size.

HERRIES are a luxury in reach of everyone owning a small 
piece of land. They are easy to grow, stand shipment well, are 
free from disease, and there is a steady demand for them at 
good prices. 

The Cherry demands more attention from the planter than 
is given to most of the standard fruits, because it can return more value. 
Its usefulness and value is evident, first from a point of beauty, as it is suit- 
able for shade purposes, roadside planting, marking lanes or avenues; and 
combined with these uses satisfactory returns can be expected on Cherries 
planted for commercial purposes. 

Sour or Acid Cherries are suited to many environments, thriving in 
various soils, and withstanding rather better than most orchard fruits, heat, 
cold and atmospheric dryness, and though they respond to good care, yet 
they thrive under neglect better than most other tree fruit. 

The Acid varieties are valuable for the hardiness of the trees, and also 
the fruit buds, and many think the fruit of the Acid Cherry is preferable for 
pies, canning, etc. 

One of the best known of Acid Cherries is the Early Richmond, which 
ripens about the beginning or middle of June. Large Montmorency is 
later, and somewhat larger. 

The cost of growing Cherries is less than most other tree fruits, as they 
require less spraying and little pruning. Of course, Apple trees are longer 
lived, but Cherries come into bearing sooner, and should he profitable for 
many years, perhaps twenty or more. 

Every home owner should have a few trees for his own use in orchard, 
garden, back-yard or along the fence. They make excellent shade trees 
and seem to do unusually well when grown near houses.

N stone fruits the greatest diversity of kinds will be found among 
Plums. The different varieties give a wide range of flavor, 
aroma, texture, color, form and size. 

Plums are easy to grow and are among the hardiest of our 
orchard fruits, doing well in almost any soil, provided it is well 

They hear at an early age, and taking all things into consideration the 
Plum is a most satisfactory tree to plant. 



Young Plum trees produce good crops of fruit as the above illustration shows 

Four varieties, at least, should be planted in every Plum orchard and 
for general market use. None better can be selected than the Lombard, 
Niagara, Shropshire Damson and German Prune. 

For home consumption we suggest the Yellow Egg. The Green Gage is 
an excellent Plum for canning. The Shipper's Pride can be mentioned for its 
certainty to produce a long crop of fruit. The Bradshaw is of fine quality and 
the Moore's Arctic is valuable for its productiveness and extreme hardiness

EACHES are divided into white flesli sorts and yellow flesh sorts. 
The former are the earliest in the season, juiciest and sweetest, 
but very few markets prefer them to yellow Peaches. The lat- 
ter, however, are firmer, ship better, and better liked in a great 
majority of markets. 

Another division of Peaches may be made, cling stones and 
free stones. The cling stones are earlier and as a class are not as well 
flavored as the free stones. They are preferred, however, by many for 
culinary purposes, since they hold their shape better after cooking. 

The Peach will thrive upon a great diversity of soil, provided two con- 
ditions be ever present — good drainage and soil warmth. It is chiefly 
because sandy, gravelly and stony soils are warm that the Peach is grown 
thereon. Upon such soils the trees make a fine growth, the wood matures 
thoroughly and the fruit is highly colored and well flavored. 

Peaches, fresh and tempting 

The Peach stands next to the apple as a fruit of commercial value, and 
although it cannot be grown over as large an area of territory, still where 
climatic conditions are favorable, the production of the peach represents 
more profit to the acre than that of any other fruit, not excepting the

HE Quince is a much-neglected fruit. Such trees as exist suflfer 
^f=|pQ from ill-treatment in some neglected corner of the orchard. 
\ l^ The fact that the fruit can not be eaten raw, though delicious 
ll^0i when cooked, has greatly impeded the progress of its culture. 
In spite of this neglect it is everywhere valued for preserves 
and marmalades. Stewed with Apples or Pears it gives addi- 
tional flavor and piquancy. In Europe the Quince is highly esteemed as a 
dried fruit. In this country the canning of Quinces is a growing industry. 
The fruit is very ornamental and of delicious flavor and aroma, but the 
texture is too coarse and tough to allow of its being used out of hand. 

The tree is a slow and irregular grower, never attaining a height 
greater than ten or twelve feet. It thrives best in strong, well-drained soils. 
The roots of the Quince never run deep, therefore it is necessary to mulch 
heavily during the winter. A continuous crop of clover is advocated for 
the Quince orchard, and affords the necessary protection. Deep cultivat- 
ing is not advisable.

VERYONE who has a house and lot, however small, can find a 
place to plant one Grape vine or even more and have an 
abundance of this delicious fruit. No garden is complete with- 
out Grape vines which can be used on arbors, fences, pergolas, 
as well as to cover unsightly objects in the garden. 

Experience shows that Grapes may be grown upon a great 
variety of soils. Productive vineyards are found on loam, sandy loam, 
gravel, gravelly loam, heavy clay and clay loam. It is not so much a ques- 
tion of the kind of soil, as the condition of the soil, as to texture, drainage 
and fertility and the possibility of washing. 

It is true that certain varieties have a soil preference, but most commercial 
varieties will thrive on many types of soil. Concord is pre-eminently the com- 
mercial black Grape. The season for good black Grapes could be consid- 
erably lengthened by 
plan ting Moore's Early 
with Concord. Niag- 
ara needs no recom- 
mendation as a home 

and market Grape. " i 1^

Every back yard can hare its own Currant Flushes like these 


URRANTS ripen at a time of the year when other fruits are 
scarce, and therefore play an important part in fruit growing, 
both for home use and for the markets. Moreover, their 
sprightliness of flavor and healthfulness commend them for the 
home garden, while the fact that they can be picked and sold 
before fully ripe, and therefore bear shipment with but little 
waste, commends them for market purposes. The currant is a northern 
plant and refuses to grow in any but a cold climate. In selecting a location 
for this fruit, a cool, northern exposure is desirable. For small plantations 
the shade of trees or of buildings can often be utilized, while in commercial 
plantings high land may be made to offset low latitude. The currant will 
bear fruit in almost any soil, but to produce profitable crops it should be 
planted in a cool, moist soil. None of the small fruits will remain so long 
on the bushes without injury as the currant. That one thing alone makes 
the fruit crop very valuable.

OOSEBERRIES are by nature northern plants and grow suc- 

cessfully only in cool climates. They thrive best in northern 
exposures, on cool, moist, retentive soils, and under some condi- 
tions, in the partial shade. For home use, fruit may be obtained 
on almost any soil. As the bushes occupy the ground for a 
number of years some care should be given to preparation of 
soil. It should be well drained. There is but little danger of too much 
plant food in the soil. Gooseberries are rank feeders and to secure maxi- 
mum yields a rich soil and liberal applications of manure are essential. 
The roots extend but a short distance and their food must be within reach. 
Stable manure is the best fertilizer, and should be applied in November, 
during the Winter or very early in the Spring before growth starts so that 
the crop will receive the maximum benefit from the fertilizer before the 
berries reach maturity. In gardens where the available land is limited, 
Gooseberries may well be planted among the tree fruits and left there

Gathering the crop 


HE Raspberry is a small fruit standing in a class by itself for the 
home use. Two or three rows in the garden will furnish an 
abundance of fruit for the table use as well as for canning. The 
Raspberry being a prolific bearer will yield crops the second 
year after planting. 

It is poor economy to set out inferior stock. The best plants 
obtainable should be secured and should have a well developed fibrous root 
system if good results are to be expected. The most desirable plants usually 
come from two and three year old plantations, as their vigor has not been 
impaired and such plants may be expected to be comparatively free from 
insects and diseases. 

To keep a Raspberry bed in good productive condition, the old, weak 
and dead wood should be cut out every season, to give strength to the 
young shoots for the next year's bearing. In the Spring the weakest suckers 
should be removed, leaving five or six of the strongest in each hill.

HE great profit in growing small fruits is not generally known to 
the average farmer. Blackberries are always in good demand 
either for canning or drying. They are the ideal crop for 
obtaining money returns from poor lands, yet the cultivation ot 
vines should not be neglected, and liberal fertilizing should he 
accorded. Blackberries are easily grown, have a good market 
and a few bushes well taken care of adds largely to the domestic fruit 
. In the garden, plant in rows about live feet apart and four feet

LTHOUGH styled perpetual bloomers, none of them are such 
in reality. They make a magnificent display through June, 
their regular blossoming period, and by vigorous pruning and 
fertilizing after blooming, it is possible to again bring many of 
the bushes to the blooming stage during September, at which 
time some of the best and largest flowers are borne on strong 
stems that are particularly useful for cutting purposes. 

The numerous kinds, especially of recent introduction, embrace some 
of the greatest acquisitions to the flower garden, being of the largest size, 
rich in color and of delightful fragrance. Because of the hardiness of this 
group, the Hybrid Perpetuals are especially desirable for the Rose garden, 
for planting in the shrub border and for grouping in beds on the lawn. 

This class of Roses thrive best in a rich soil. Therefore frequent appli- 
cations of liquid manure early in the season will prove highly beneficial. 

Pruning should be regulated by the habit of growth. The 
weak shoots should be closely cut in, those which are vigorous left 
longer. Most of the 
varieties are fra-

HE Roses included in this group are valued especially for their 
free and continuous blooming qualities which render them par-

flowers for decorative purposes. 

Our collection of Hybrid Teas embraces the choicest varie- 
ties, which are very free flowering, fragrant and beautiful. 

Hybrid Teas require Winter protection. The plants need to be well 
banked up with earth and covered with straw or boughs, while those planted 
in beds should also be protected to keep ofT wet and moisture. The e.xtra 
care devoted to the Roses in this class will be amply repaid in the satisfac- 
tory flowers produced abundantly and continuously during the Summer 
months. Roses cut early in the morning or at evening will last much better 
than if cut in the heat of the dav.

RE of rapid growth, suitable for covering fences, pergolas, for 
training over arbors, porches or for screening unsightly objects. 
They are profuse bloomers, the flowers literally covering the 
branches, calling forth much admiration wherever planted. 

The Thousand Beauty in the above picture shows that this 
wonderful Rose has justly earned its name. 

Climbing Roses will add much to the beauty of the home where used 
for decorative purposes, for porch or archway. 

Those who get Roses from the greenhouse or florists' shops, Roses some- 
one else has produced, do not have the same appreciation of their beauty

A Rose which on account of its dainty 
color and exquisitely shaped buds and 
flowers, has become a great favorite. 
The long, pointed buds are of a rich 
flesh-pink on stems 12 to 18 inches long, 
splendid for cutting.

The Baby Rambler comes in three colors, white, crimson 
and pink. The plants form shapely, compact, bushy specimens about 
eighteen inches high and produce a great profusion of bloom from early in 
the season until severe frost. 

To obtain the best results they should be used in beds or masses, 
twenty-tive, fifty or more plants together, thus insuring a very effective 
group. The satisfaction of having a bed of Roses almost constantly in 
bloom, equalling in beauty a bed of Annuals or foliage plants that have to 
be renewed each year can be realized by the use of Baby Ramblers. 

With this class of Roses pruning is not required. All that is necessary 
is to remove the past season's flower stems.

HRUBS have an important bearing in the adornment of the home 
grounds. The charm and grace they lend is invaluable and if 
a judicious selection is made, it is possible to have a continuous 
succession of bloom from early in April when the Forsythia 
displays its flowers to welcome the returning birds until the 
days when the frost again nips flowers of the very latest in bloom. 

In this and in similar climates where great extremes in temperature are 
experienced, it is necessary to plant hardy ornamental stock. Impressed 
with the importance of this fact, and in order that our patrons may be 
spared any disappointments, we have omitted from our growing list as far 
as possible, everything which is liable to suffer from severe cold, and we 
have gathered together all available hardy material which includes an 
extensive assortment 
enabling a planter by 
careful selection, to 
accomplish any de- 
sired results with 
Chase Ornamentals.

LIMBING Vines are as important requisites to the comfort and 
beauty of a home as the trees and shrubs we phint about it. 
Their uses are many and include shade, screening and orna- 
mentation being always useful for covering verandas or 
porches, corners of buildings, foundations, walls, trellises, etc. 
Every house has peculiar architectural features which call for a 
certain treatment in the arrangement of material to be used to best beautify 
the side and foundation walls to make the property appear to best advan- 
tage. The above picture shows a well arranged combination of Vines and 
shrubs, the side walls being covered with Ampelopsis Veitchii and the foun- 
dation planting shows what good effects can be secured with New American 
or Snowball Hydrangea. 

The deciduous Vines always give the best results if planted in sunny 
positions. Shade is required by the evergreen Vines, however, and they 
may be planted to best advantage in cool exposures. It is desirable to have 
the ground in which any of the Vines are planted thoroughly prepared and 
a deep fertile, moist soil should be supplied.

ARDY herbaceous perennials are plants which live over Winter 
and flower again each season. They are most satisfactory for 
use in the garden and for planting in the foreground of shrubs, 
and include all the varieties that our grandmother loved best, 
such as Larkspur, Phlox, Hollyhocks and Fox Gloves. 

The flowers show a great range of color. The foliage is 
abundant and beautiful and by proper selection the flowering season can be 
made to continue from early Spring until late Fall. 

After two or three years the 
roots can be divided and the increase 
used to further beautify the garden. 

Perennials are particularly effec- 
tive in shrub borders, and should be 
planted in generous pockets or bays. 
Another excellent way to use them 
is in a border along the walk. Peren- 
nials planted along winding or infor- 
mal paths aff"ord constantly changing 
pictures of rare charm and beauty. 

For cutting purposes the flowers 
of the hardy perennials have no 
ecjual; they are unsurpassed for 
household decoration. 

Good, rich soil and thorough 
cultivation are essential, together 
with liberal mulching in the Fall. 
Before mulching all the tops should 

be cut oft' even with the ground. Perennial Border Planting

O complete the decoration of the home lawn, ornamental trees 
and hedges should not be overlooked. Shade trees protect the 
home from intense heat during the Summer months and add to 
the attractiveness of the owner's grounds. More attention is 
being paid than ever before to the trees in the City streets and 
ornamental trees around the farm home not only add to its 
beauty and comfort but greatly increase the value of the property as well. 

The planting of hedges is a practical one rapidly becoming appreciated. 
Nothing is more beautiful than a hedge well kept and pruned to serve 
as a boundary line or as a division between the lawn and garden or to hide 
unsightly places. 

City streets are made more attractive and land values increased by the planting of shade trees, and best etTects 
are had by using one kind of tree as shown in the street pictured where Oriental plane was used.
