Continual Cropping is a Win-win Situation

Pages in this article: Why not wait to start receiving the cuttings for your warm-season vegetative annual hanging basket crop until around mid-March and have several consecutive shipments? This schedules the crop during a more environmentally optimum time of the year. It will reduce crop time, minimize greenhouse space occupied by each crop, lower production costs, save fertilizer and chemical applications, and give you a succession of product throughout the bedding plant season and into the summer. It is true that you may need to drop prices for mid-summer hanging basket sales, but the labor and other overhead costs you save by starting your hanging basket crop later and continually cropping should still allow you to make a good profit per square foot.
