A grower's guide to perennial production
Perennials can be a challenge to grow, if for no other reason that there is so much variability among crops. Perennial Solutions by Paul Pilon is hoping to solve that.
Nov. 9, 2011 – Perennials can be a challenge to grow, if for no other reason that there is so much variability between crops. Perennial Solutions by Paul Pilon is hoping to solve that.
This comprehensive book covers all aspects of producing
perennial crops-propagation, fertility, media, pests and disease
management, weed control, height control, and overwintering. And, of
course, a large section is devoted to forcing perennials into bloom to
maximize sell through at retail.
Perennial Solutions presents specific production guidelines for thirty
popular crops, including Aster, Delphinium, Hemerocallis, Hosta,
Rudbeckia, and ornamental grasses. Detailed tables also offer specific
recommendations for using plant growth regulators (PGRs), herbicides,
forcing schedules, and more.
