Container and Field Evaluation of Gaillardia pulchella Production in Compost-based Media
Helen E. Danielson, Sandra B. Wilson, Richard K. Schoellhorn and Peter J. Stoffella
Medium composition effects on growth of blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella) Foug. were determined during container (greenhouse) production and subsequent field plantings. At 10 weeks, plant height and shoot dry weight were greater for plants grown in the compost-based medium or compost alone than for plants grown in the peat-based medium. However, incorporation of compost in the medium did not affect growth index, leaf greenness, flowering, root mass, or post performance in the landscape.
