May 2015 Issue

Features
Eclectic Companies | Jennifer Zurko
We look at the future of technology in our industry and how some equipment suppliers are working to incorporate the modern tools we use in our daily lives into the greenhouse.

Are Your Crops Making Money? | Paul Fisher, Charlie Hall and Bruce MacKay
For the next several months, we’ll feature articles on specific topics that you can find on the new online tool, Back Pocket Grower. This month: using the new Greenhouse Costing app to calculate profit.



Culture Notes
Precisely Perfect Ivy Geranium | Kristopher Carlsson
For the next several months, we’ll be highlighting varieties from Ball FloraPlant’s Real Series. 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. This month: growing a high-quality ivy geranium every time.

Vibrant, Ever-blooming Catharanthus | Alison Strate
The Soiree Collection of catharanthus hybrids is a must have for every landscaper, homeowner or greenhouse grower.



Columns
Welcome Changes | Jennifer Zurko
But as I planned the issue and read the articles, one thing kept jumping out at me: to save—or make—money, you have to be willing to embrace change.

Make It Grow! | Chris Fifo
I’ve thought about the days with my children for a long time and have often wanted to slow them down and savor these years. This spring, I had quite the opposite experience in my plug range.




Under an Acre

If there were three words that could describe Lynn Coupland—owner of Lynn’s Plants and Things Greenhouse in Benito, Manitoba, Canada—it would be passionate, determined and caring.

Growers Talk Business

Early spring brings hope … and it brings pressure, too, as you either have it too early and your customers don’t want it or you were too cautious and you don’t have enough.
Acres & Acres

The story this year is that there will be plenty of “new” for you to grow and sell in 2016. Just don’t expect it to sell itself.
