How can the flower production per kg of narcissus bulbs be increased?



How can the flower production per kg of narcissus bulbs be increased?



Bloembollencultuur 91(33): 894-895



In a trial with the narcissus Carlton, the flower production/kg of narcissus bulbs was found to depend on the number of bulb noses (growing points) each kg contained. Results showed that a bulb will definitely flower when it weighs a minimum 14 g but it rarely produces more than 1 flower at this size. The number of bulbs/kg could be increased by closer planting in the last year of culture before lifting for forcing.
