Have your say on the trials being undertaken at The Bedding and Pot Plant Centre and help contribute to the planning of future work at our annual summer open evening.
Growers will be provided with an overview of the current trials, including evaluations of plant growth regulators and the performance of overwintering perennials to increase the product range for early spring impulse sales.
There will also be an opportunity to hear updates on other relevant research, including:
SCEPTREplus: new control options for western flower thrips and aphids
Efficient water and soluble fertiliser use in the production of protected ornamentals
Transition to responsibly sourced growing media – new results for bedding plant crops
There will also be an option for growers to bring in plant samples for examination and analysis at a mobile on-site diagnostic laboratory.
The event will be rounded-off with a BBQ and the chance to informally discuss future work at the Bedding and Pot Plant Centre.
