Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 164
Berkeley ---------- - Heteromeles arbutifolia. F.F. Thomas is acquainted with Rossi_, the big wholesale florist over in S.F., and proposes to secure some data regarding the amount of native stock cut for decorative purposes and brought to S.F. Mr. Thomas says: Carloads of Christmas Berry come from Tuolumne Co., it being finer there than elsewhere acc. Rossi. His Huckeberry stock (Vaccinium ovatum) comes from Marin Co. There is also used Black Oak on a considerable scale. Mistletoe comes from the Sacramento Valley says Thomas. ---------- _ Present Mayor of San Francisco. ::::::::: 9 Dec. 1912 ---------- Juvenilism -- Miss Beans talks about the Japanese nurserymen whom she visits a great deal. One of them described his process of making a potted cherry bloom every year -- an incredibly old tree, one of their dwarfs. He claimed the Americans couldnt do it, first of all because they haven't trees old enough. He root prunes after every flowering season. I remarked that decreasing the vegetative power or removing vegetative parts induced reproduction or flowering, that nature aften "root-pruned" or "branch-pruned" because the soil or conditions so poor, as in the chaparral where the shrubs fruit very heavily; that a tree which could be partially killed so that its vegetative existence was threatened would throw all its last energy into reproduction as in the case of girdled Tan Oaks. ---------- - Tallest trees on earth, question of. Eucalptus viminalis. Tallest = 325 ft. Maiden, J.H. in Melburne Argus, 23 Mar. 1904. ---------- - Rose Springs = Placer Co. Cf. Hall in litt. 1913.
