December 2014 Issue

Features
Making Greenhouse Math Easy | Paul Fisher and Bruce MacKay
For the next year, we’ll feature articles on specific topics that you can find on the new online tool, Back Pocket Grower. This month: how to calculate dilutions for pesticides and fertilizers.

Interviewing Advice | Jennifer Zurko
All managers have specific questions or methods they use to make sure that a possible new employee will work out. These growers tell us theirs.



Culture Notes
Go Long or Short With Lofos | Delilah Onofrey
Lofos Compact varieties were bred to be grower friendly and were very well received by growers who produced them for the first time last season.

Unraveling the Confusion: Growing Blooming-Sized Digiplexis | Jeremy Windemuller
Since it’s a Zone 8 perennial that does require some vernalization to bloom, a bit of knowledge is necessary to produce a beautiful flowering crop of Digiplexis.



Columns
Taking the Good With the Bad | Jennifer Zurko
With the current state of world events and, especially with the state of our government, you may be finding it hard to think of something positive. So let’s try that, shall we?

Overwintering: It’s a Love/Hate Thing | Paul Westervelt
For all its challenges, winter production may be my favorite because I get to experience the magic of spring before everyone else.




Under an Acre

In 2008, Vanessa Rutledge was offered a position at an established wholesale greenhouse in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her husband Ryan came to join her a year later and then, in December 2013, when the business went up for sale, Vanessa and Ryan decided to make it their own, calling it Vanroot Growers.

Growers Talk Business

The best thing that we could do in the midst of all of the turmoil was to do as we have always done and put our best effort towards taking care of our relationships.
Acres & Acres

Something crazy happened over on the Green Profit side of the magazine this month.
