August 2014 Issue

Features
Inside the Greenhouse: The Height of the Issue | Al Sray
The days of short sidewalls and under-gutter height are over. To grow better plants, you need a taller greenhouse.

Spring 2014: Better Than its 6.7 Rating | Chris Beytes
Spring 2014 started molasses-slow, finished chilli-pepper hot and left most growers and retailers contentedly out of plants—and in some cases, seeing record sales.



Culture Notes
Kabloom: The First Calibrachoa from Seed | Lisa Lacy
Culture practices for the world’s first calibrachoa from seed were developed after trialing globally and extensively across North America.

Sundenia Dipladenias: The Best of Both Worlds | Delilah Onofrey

Columns

Michelle Rose and her husband Parker Croft made the official move to Hawaii in 2006 where they fully immersed themselves in developing Cloudwater Farm and growing handcrafted tea.
Pest Management

For the last 20 years, the crape myrtle has grown in popularity in nurseries and in landscapes, but in 2013 and 2014, we had reports from several landscapers that had heavy infestations of carpe myrtle aphid causing cosmetic damage.
Growers Talk Business

Instead of being on the track to success, we found ourselves in the bear’s den.
Acres & Acres

How do we give young growers the responsibility and autonomy I’m sure they all crave?
