Manuring of roses grown in peat moss






Acta Horticulturae 1974; (43, II): 367-374

Manuring of roses grown in peat moss

Glasshouse roses, America's Junior Miss, were grown in a 40-cm-deep layer of sphagnum peat to which various ratios of N, S, P (as the anions NO3, SO4 and PO4) and the cations K, Ca and Mg were applied. The fresh weight of the saleable cut flowers and nutrient analyses of the substrate and leaves were recorded. The highest yields were obtained with the ionic proportion 64N-18S-18P-38K-26Ca-36Mg, at an optimal dose of 510 meq/plant.
