Our Chrysanthemum crop this year is disappointing... At this stage it looks as though we will not have plants that will be salable for Mothers Day. Flower buds are developing, however plant vigor is unsatisfactory.
Plants, showing signs of stress were susceptible to caterpillar and aphid attack and were sprayed with 'Natural Pyrethrum' today. Plants were also given their 2 week fertiliser with 'Thrive'.
- Plant out the current Chrysanthemums potted plants with the intention to sell 'cut flowers' in 2007 to recoup funds?
- Sell Roses as a substitute to enable sales and make profit to cover costs and assist the ARC?
WHAT do you think?
