This industry has an image problem in a sense, but it’s a good thing.
If food production efficiency was an Olympic sport, Canada would be a perennial shoo-in for the podium.
About five years ago, “vegetable gardening” exploded into the more encompassing “food gardening” and it’s never looked back.
When we think of container production, we’re usually considering the technology and processes of growing plants in round pots ready for wholesale or retail sales, without having grown those plants in the open ground beforehand.
There’s always a lot to get excited about when attending the Canadian Greenhouse Conference, but this year was extra special.
The adage “the more things change, the more they stay the same” was definitely not written with the greenhouse sector in mind.
Is branding the answer to boost domestic cut flower production?
Christmas is the one season where tradition meets trend. There is always this tug of war between what’s current and what’s always been done.
Was 2012 was a better year than the previous year for growers?
Profitable greenhouse operations know the cost of every product they produce, that is, if they sell it at a profitable margin.
Christmas was well and truly over some time ago. Possibly long forgotten already for some!
Last issue I shared with you a detailed outline of the different factors that need to be considered in planning combinations.
Container production, in particular of nursery stock, has a number of characteristics that have made this system a favoured option with both producers and customers.
Poinsettia growers have a responsibility for the post-production longevity of the plants we offer to consumers.
It’s December, there’s a chill in the air (and hopefully no snowstorm), and you’re wondering what will be hot in the 2013 container season.
