As an creation to the current booklet i need to provide an explanation for the way it was once, that I, a advertisement nurseryman, turned so keenly drawn to Conifers and their nomen­ clature. In August 1924 the Dutch Dendrological Society used to be based and while a Committee for Nomenclature of woody vegetation used to be organize and that i served in this committee as one of many contributors. Our first task was once to deliver the catalogues of many of the major nurserymen within the Netherlands into line with the foreign ideas of Botanical Nomenclature and in addition to ascertain their nursery inventory. previously those catalogues had proven a slightly careworn nomenclature, nurserymen having frequently made use of various inconsistent books as publications in compiling their catalogues. through the paintings an in depth co-operation among medical and sensible staff built. even supposing I had additionally totally contributed to the proper naming of hardy shrubs and perennials, 1 was once such a lot drawn to Conifers. I had attempted out a number of species, had grown a large collection of backyard types and chosen forms of specific advantage for propagation. My targeted love for Conifers result in the booklet of my Name-list of Conifers (1937), which used to be followed as a customary for varietal names on the foreign Horticultural Congress in Berlin (1938). Later I ready my ebook 'Coniferen, Ephedra en Ginkgo' within the Dutch language (1949); compiling the Conifers cultivated or identified to be grown within the Netherlands and Belgium at that time.
