Excerpt from Commercial Carnation Culture: A Practical Guide to Modern Methods of Growing the American Carnation for Market Purposes Speaking of it in the broadest terms, the Carnation is a very remarkable flower and no society and no person has yet fully done justice to its history or to all the attributes surrounding it. We believe we are fulfilling a need in publishing Commercial Carnation Culture. Much useful and informative matter has been collected, and the plan that we began in "Sweet Peas for Profit," of having cultural treatises from different sections of this continent, has been followed. Acknowledgment and hearty thanks are herein tendered to those who have assisted with contributions as mentioned in the following fist: George W. Allwood. - "American Carnations in England."F. J. Ammann, St. Louis, Mo. - "Carnations in the St. Louis Region."J. G. Baclier, Portland, Ore. - "Carnations in the Pacific Northwest."A. F. J. Baur, Indianapolis, Ind. - "Crossbreeding and Hybridizing Carnations."E. T. Cook (the late), Toronto, Can. - "Carnations in Ontario."L. J. Cook, Bush Hill Park, Mdx., Eng. - "The American Carnation as a Bedding Plant."Wm. F. Gude, Washington, D. C. - "Carnations at Washington, D. C."S. J. Goddard, Framingham, Mass. - "Exhibiting and Judging Carnations."Albert M. Herr, Lancaster, Pa. - "Carnations in Pennsylvania."Chas. W. Johnston, Morgan Park, 111. - "Carnations in Chicago and Illinois."S. J. Mitchell, Houston, Tex. - "Carnations in the South."A. A. Pembroke, Beverly, Mass. - "Varieties of the American Carnation."Samuel Redstone, Philadelphia, Pa. - "The Best Type of Greenhouse."H. R. Richards, Los Angeles, Cal. - "Carnations in Southern California."J. A. Valentine, Denver, Colo. - "Carnations in Colorado and the Mountain States."Joseph M. Wilkin, ConnersvUle, Ind. - "Carnation Supports." In addition, the editor has to acknowledge the kind permission granted by C. Harman Payne, Caterham, Kent, England, to reprint the fist of books on Carnations from his Florists Bibliography, a most useful work.
