The use of peat in propagating hardy nursery stock at Kinsealy

Acta Horticulturae (26): 125-127
The use of peat in propagating hardy nursery stock at Kinsealy
Cuttings of azalea, Balzac, struck on 2 May rooted best (70 % on 15 July) in sphagnum peat; 70 % rooting was also obtained and root formed slightly quicker in a 2:1 mixture of peat and sand, but the convenience of using peat alone was considered of greater importance. Only 35 % rooting by 15 July was obtained in a 2:1 mixture of sand and peat. In another trial cuttings of 4 cvs of Chamaecyparis lawsoniana were struck on 4 April in sand, peat, 2:1 peat/sand or 2:1 sand/peat.
