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

, : Effect of capillary matting and underground heating on foliage stock plant production in peat. Acta Horticulturae (82): 223-230

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.

Ten ornamental foliage crops were grown, from January to June, on insulated ground beds with and without the use of underground heating. Basal heat was provided by hot water circulating in loops of 1.25 cm diameter alkathane piping set in damp san...
