Who better to help you grow your poinsettia crops than the world’s leader?
The Paul Ecke Ranch, the world’s largest poinsettia breeder, shares its expertise on how to grow and market the number one Christmas flower.
This manual provides everything a grower needs to know about producing and selling this pervasive crop of red, pink, yellow, purple, speckled, and marbled flowers.
Using their vast experience, Ecke provides a great guide to selecting cultivars and growing high-quality crops. After a brief history of poinsettias and their place in the market, the authors provide detailed chapters about propagation, growing on, nutrition, pest and disease control, pot and cut flower culture, postharvest care, and marketing.
