THE MORE UNUSUAL ASPECTS OF PLANT PROPAGATION METHODS AND EXPERIENCES IN MIST PROPAGATION IN BERMUDA
Donald J. Moore
Before proceeding into the main subject matter of this paper, it is, I feel, essential to acquaint you all with a few statistics relevant to Bermuda's geographical location, climatical data and topography. Whilst these factors may not effect propagation to any great extent in a broad sense, they most certainly do dictate problems to us locally. They do this in no uncertain matter.
Our climate may be described as sub-tropical. Geographically, however, we are located in the Temperate zone. Exact location, relevant to the nearest point of land, is 568 miles from Cape Hatteras.
