The production of flowering hanging baskets during the spring bedding plant season has become an important part of greenhouse production, with more container types and plant species being produced than ever before. Mixed baskets provide small- and medium-sized growers the opportunity to distinguish themselves in niche markets—but they require additional greenhouse space and labor. This six-page publication helps growers carefully determine these additional costs and ensure profits; it also offers valuable production tips on scheduling and marketing, irrigation, pinching, and color combinations.
