If growing for exhibition, five plants
(blooms) per pot, same cultivar, they all flower same time and as
"peas in pod", unlike stopped plants that grow in apical
dominance, each bloom varies a bit in flowering time and size. Easy to
match up "one-ups" in a vase.
I would rather grow a flower than a
big plant, I do appreciate I am growing late anemones however.
Rooted cuttings do not require
repotting stages. The type of pot and aggregate produces a different
One great advantage for old codgers
(myself included!) is no more lifting heavy pots with heavy contents,
and no washing and scrubbing all those pots of different sizes.
And of course less room taken up in
glasshouse storing stools during winter.
THIS TYPE OF GROWING COULD BECOME
REVOLUTIONARY....SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
I do wish that one of our expert grower of late sprays would just
trial 3 plants or so to try this system. I consider it would be very
successful and an interesting challenge.
