Effect of capillary matting and underground heating on foliage stock plant production in peat


Acta Horticulturae (82): 223-230
Effect of capillary matting and underground heating on foliage stock plant production in peat
Several foliage plant crops under glass were grown for 27 months under summer shade and others without shade. The crops were planted in 100% sphagnum peat fertilized with the Kinsealy Range Mix formula using 15 or 20 cm polyethylene containers and receiving supplementary fertilization by capillary irrigation. The containers stood on wool-based (Vattex) or polyester-based (Bondina) capillary mattings which were held at field capacity from spring to autumn.
