Pine bark as a soil improver in gladiolus culture


Acta Horticulturae (82): 31-36
Pine bark as a soil improver in gladiolus culture
Composted, fresh or old (carbonated bark undisturbed for 5 years) bark was used as a soil amendment and source of organic fertilizer at 20 or 40 litres/m2 soil. About 85% was derived from Scotch pine and 15% from birch. Gladiolus, Oscar, corms were grown in treated sandy soil and all 3 amendments improved growth, flower and cormlet yield quality. The double rate of bark application proved best and composted bark was preferable to old or fresh bark.
