GROW Update Poppins Chrysanthemum

Earley Grow Update

May 2016

Keith Gittens, our product expert, explains why one of the newest additions to the Earley range - the Poppins series of compact patio chrysanthemums - are much easier to grow than conventional ‘mums.

Innovative breeding has produced an easy-to-grow compact patio chrysanthemum - ideal for production in packs and small pots without the need for blackout.

You can literally just ‘poppin’ the plug, water, feed and sell! They are much easier to grow than conventional mums.

The Poppins varieties are suitable for high density, glasshouse production without stretching or heat delay to flowering. There is also no need either for pinching or for PGR applications, offering the benefit of lower production costs.
With such minimal cultural requirements, they are ideal for bedding plant producers without day length control facilities.

  • Potting wk28 – 1 litre
  • Potting wk30 – 10-11cm
  • Supplied in 104 count

With a reputation for good consumer satisfaction, Poppins offer real mass-market appeal.

Royalty labels are also included.
