If annual bedding plants have even just a few flowers, customers get an idea of what the plant looks like in full bloom, which can increase impulse purchases. However, to be able to deliver to retailers annual bedding plants that are in flower, producers must understand their flowering requirements. This publication examines these factors involved in inducing annuals to flower and provides information to help you successfully control flower induction of your annual bedding plants. Target Audience: commercial greenhouse and nursery growers.
