The growth of Cylamen persicum in peat and peat modified media with several fertilizer regimes

Acta Horticulturae (26): 103-111

The growth of Cylamen persicum in peat and peat modified media with several fertilizer regimes

The development of Astoria Bright Salmon Red was compared when plants were grown in fortified moss peat; 9:1 fortified moss peat/silt loam; or 1:1:1 moss peat/silt loam/sand, each with 5 fertilizer regimes. Plant growth was best in the fortified moss peat and fortified moss peat/silt loam. Fertilizer was best applied as a dilute solution with each watering rather than as infrequent treatments with concentrated solutions, the optimum dressing being 20:20:20 NPK providing 100 p.p.m.
