Poinsettia Open House

Tuesday 19 November 2019, 10:00am - 02:30pm
Location: Jordan, ON
This year, the poinsettia trials open house will feature over 120 varieties, as well as a speakers program that aims to answer some long overdue questions, such as:

  • Does spraying B-Nine delay flowering if sprayed at bud set and after?
  • Does Erwinia infect other cuttings when dipped?
  • The economics of biological control and how to make it cost effective
  • How to take the science of biocontrol and carry it out in practice
See if you can guess at or learn the symptoms of disease, cultural practices, and common mistakes so you can avoid them in your own production.
Poinsettia breeders will also be present to share their latest, most promising varieties. Bring your questions!
