Title:
GRO-PLUG SYSTEMS AND THEIR PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN GROWING ORNAMENTALS

Author:
Thomas S. Pinney Jr

pp: 312-317

Abstract:
Gro-Plugs® is the registered name we are using for our tube culture production. We have worked with a tube system for many years in our birch program. Several years ago we began experimenting with other woody seed-propagated ornamentals. Presently we have grown crops of Abies concolor, Picea pungens ‘Glauca’, P. glauca ‘Densata’, P. omorika, Pinus mugo (ENCI), P. nigra, P. sylvestris, P. ponderosa, P. strobus, Tsuga canadensis and Thuja occidentalis. Usually 4 months is required to produce Gro-Plugs® seedlings ready for transplanting in our own fields or for sale.
