Effect of sequential plantings on growth, flowering and seed formation in snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus L.)

Orissa Journal of Horticulture 9(1): 53-55

Effect of sequential plantings on growth, flowering and seed formation in snapdragon (Antirrhinum majus L.)

Seedlings of the Tip Top White were planted in pots at monthly intervals between 15 August and 15 February. Seedlings planted on 15 October gave the best results with regard to plant height (107 cm), leaf number (326), flower number (261) and seed yield (2.07 g/plant).
