Plant propagation in peat harvested by different methods

, : Plant propagation in peat harvested by different methods. Acta Horticulturae (26): 141-147

The propagation of vegetables and ornamentals in sphagum, sod and milled peats was compared. Tomatoes thrived better in black sod and sphagum peats than in milled peat, although with milled peat sowing in August gave somewhat better results than in June. Clarkia and cucumber produced their highest fresh weights in black sod peat; with alyssum, aster, stock, lettuce and cauliflower results were comparable to those in sphagnum, and with celery fresh weights were less than in sphagnum.
