Bark-humus as an alternative to peat and soil in the production of cut flowers

Acta Horticulturae (26): 119-124
Bark-humus as an alternative to peat and soil in the production of cut flowers
Studies were carried out on the growth of the chrysanthemum cvs Bonnie Jean, Mefo and Indianapolis the snapdragon cvs Hercules, Golden Spice and White Giant and rose Zorina in coniferous bark humus (crushed bark waste), peat or soil under glass. Chrysanthemums grew well in all substrates, snapdragons grew best in peat and roses grew best in soil.
