Carnation production timed for flowers in November-December

Acta Horticulturae (51): 237-242

Carnation production timed for flowers in November-December

To occupy large areas of greenhouses and plastic tunnels used for propagation or for vegetable growing between December and June, carnations were planted on 25 June, pinched on 10 July, given all night illumination between 12 and 29 August and the secondary buds and side shoots were removed between 20 and 30 September.
