Effects of container volume and fertility rate on growth of two woody ornamentals



Effects of container volume and fertility rate on growth of two woody ornamentals



Hortscience 22(5 SECT 1): 891-893



Dwarf Japanese euonymus (Euonymus japonica Thunb. 'Microphylla') and 'Pink Supreme' azalea (Rhododendron Xsp.) grown in containers of three diameters (10.2, 15.2, and 20.3 cm), were given three rates of Osmocote 17N-3P-10K (3.6, 7.1, and 10.7 kg .cntdot. m-3). Response to container volume and fertility was species-dependent. Top growth of euonymus increased in response to both increased medium volume and fertility and was closely related to foliar levels of N, P, and K. Top growth of azalea increased in response to increasing fertility rates in the smallest pots, and to increasing medium volume at the lowest fertilizer rates. With an increase in both fertilizer rate and medium volume, growth of azalea was reduced. Top growth was inversely related to foliar K, but was unrelated to foliar N and P.
