Fort lauderdale trial garden-year 4 (2005-2006)

Kimberly K. Moore, Luci Fisher


Rooted cuttings of vegetatively propagated annuals from Danziger quot;Danquot; Flower Farm were planted on September 9, 2005 while rooted geranium cuttings from Fischer/Goldsmith were planted on December 1, 2005. All cultivars were planted with 3 groups of 6 plants that were randomly placed in the garden. Plants were watered 3 times a week for 30 minutes using overhead irrigation. Monthly evaluations were conducted to measure and record plant height, plant width, flower number, and quality rating. Quality was rated on a scale of 0 to 5 with 5 = top performance, 3 = plants of interest, 1 = poor performance, and 0 = dead. One consumer preference survey was conducted in March 2006. Results from the consumer preference survey and from the monthly quality ratings are presented in the text.
