perennialsolutionNov. 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.
