Features
Improving Ethephon Drenches | Christopher J. Currey, Kenneth G. McCabe & Kellie J. Walters
Researchers look at how the timing of drench applications and ethephon concentration interacts to affect growth regulation.

Plenty to Pick From | Chris Beytes, Jennifer Zurko & Ellen C. Wells
There was no shortage of new varieties at this year’s California Spring Trials.



Culture Notes
Archangel Angelonia: An Angel in the Garden | Ryan Hall
To continue our series on Ball FloraPlant’s Real Series, we’ll be looking at another heat-lover for the summer: angelonia. What does “Real” mean? Everything flowers and ships within the same week, shares the same culture recommendations, finishes with the same habit and vigor, and is the most uniform assortment on the market.



Columns
Growing With Griffin Preventative Fungicides for Fall-Planted Flower Bulbs | Joanne Lutz
Fall flower bulbs are susceptible to a few common diseases. Fortunately, early sanitation, combined with good culture and preventative fungicide treatments, can greatly reduce the risk of disease.

Playing the Waiting Game | Jennifer Zurko
Sometimes I feel like all we’re doing is waiting around for something to happen.




Under an Acre

Danna and Brandon O’Donnell have an incredible entrepreneurial spirit and, so when they dreamed of expanding from their small horticultural services business into farming on an old historic farm in Grand Forks, British Columbia, they went for it.
Pest Management

Banker plants provide resources, such as food or hosts to sustain natural enemies within greenhouses.
Growers Talk Business

Spring of 2015 will go down in the record books as one of the best sales seasons we’ve ever seen.
Acres & Acres

I’ve done some cool trips to most corners of the world. But the trip that tops them all was my visit in May to the Netherlands to interview King Willem-Alexander.
