Slide 1

Bedding Plant Production By: Johnny M. Jessup Agriculture Teacher/FFA Advisor

Slide 2

Introduction Bedding plants are herbaceous plants that are regularly developed in open air beds to give beautiful sprouts or foliage to a scene.

Slide 3

Bedding Plants Fastest developing portion of horticulture Best Sellers (% of US Market) Impatiens (44%) Geraniums (20%) Petunias (14%) Other top merchants are… . Begonias Marigolds Pansies

Slide 4

Impatiens Grow 6-18" high w/succulent stems. Spear formed takes off.

Slide 5

Impatiens Small and adjusted blooms with five petals and one petal is molded like a tube that distends from the underside of the blossom Pink, lavender, red, white, purple, salmon and coral.

Slide 6

Impatiens Spaced 12-18" and requirements fractional sun or shade. May be spread from seeds or cuttings.

Slide 7

Impatiens Time from seeding to market packs is around 8 weeks Seeds ought to be set on surface of medium and secured delicately Germination requires light and temperature of 60-70F Can be engendered from cuttings Have been the main sheet material product for a considerable length of time Grow well in shade

Slide 8

Geraniums Grow 12-18" Leaves are adjusted with scalloped edges. Red, white, or pink blossoms. 2/3 of plants sold are red.

Slide 9

Geraniums Need coordinate daylight and 10-12" dispersing. May be engendered from seeds or cutting and transplanted.

Slide 10

Geraniums Time from seeding to showcase in packs is around 14 weeks and in pots is around 16 weeks. Seeds are vast and must be scarified as a result of hard seed coats (seed organization).

Slide 11

Geraniums Cover seeds with a 1/8" of soil. Medium (soil blend) ought to be around 75 o F. Can be proliferated from cuttings (greater and progressively various blossoms).

Slide 12

Petunias Grow from 6-18" tall and have blossoms with a tube molded base. Bloom hues are red, pink, white, blue, and pastels. Separated 10-12"

Slide 13

Petunias Grown from seeds and transplanted. Time from seeding to advertise in packs is around 10 weeks and 11 weeks in pots. Sow seeds on surface of medium. (285,000 seed to an ounce) Need light and 70 o F - 80 o F developing medium temperature.

Slide 14

Petunias Many distinctive sorts and hues. One of main five annuals in the US for more than 100 years.

Slide 15

Begonias Grow 6-13" high with pink, red or white blooms. Dispersed 6-10" and need coordinate daylight.

Slide 16

Begonias May be spread from seeds or cuttings and afterward transplanted.

Slide 17

Begonias Time from seeding to advertise in packs is around 14 weeks and in pots is around 16 weeks. Little seed ought to be softly squeezed into surface of developing medium. Germination requires 65-70 F medium temperature. Can be engendered with stem cuttings. Plants do well in full sun to shade.

Slide 18

Marigolds Grow 6" to 4' tall with orange or yellow blooms. Impactful fragrance. Dispersed 6-12" separated . Best in full daylight. Developed from seeds or transplants

Slide 19

Marigolds Time from seeding to market is around 9 weeks in packs and 10 weeks in pots. Cover seeds with ¼" of medium. Germination medium ought to be 70-75 o F.

Slide 20

Marigolds Grow outside in full sun. Plants grow 6"- 4' tall. Couple of issues.

Slide 21

Pansies Grow 6-8" tall and have moon molded blossoms in numerous hues… . Blue, purple, yellow, white, pink, and red. Dispersed 6-8" and developed in full sun. Developed from seeds and transplanted. Cool season bedding plant.

Slide 22

Pansies Time from seeding to showcase in packs is around 12 weeks and 13 weeks in pots. Seeds ought to be planted on surface of medium and secured with paper to keep dim. Media 70 o F. Develop in full sun. Cool climate bedding plant.

Slide 23

Pansies Growing Pansies in Eastern NC BUY PLUGS!!! (It is difficult to have germination media at 70 o F amid August) Seeded plants for the most part turn leggy and appalling.

Slide 24

Problems, Causes & Solutions Related with Bedding Plant Production

Slide 25

Cultural Problems Caused by one of four issues: Germination issues. Treatment issues. Uneven development. Tall & spindly development.

Slide 26

Cultural Problems – Germination Are created by… . Dishonorable temperature. Over-watering. Underwatering. Compound buildups in medium. Seed planting profundity. Low quality seeds.

Slide 27

Cultural Problems – Germination Problems can be remedied or counteracted by… . Utilizing top notch seeds. Planted at legitimate profundity in medium. Having no compound buildups. Keeping up legitimate temperature. Keep up legitimate dampness levels.

Slide 28

Cultural Problems – Fertilization Are brought about by… . Absence of supplements. Root damage. Shameful pH of medium. Exorbitant preparation.

Slide 29

Cultural Problems – Fertilization Problems can be understood by… . Testing soil or media. Applying right sums & sorts of supplements and pH rectifying materials.

Slide 30

Cultural Problems – Uneven Growth Caused by… . Poor blending of medium. Uneven dampness levels. Unlevel pads. Poor reviewing of seedlings.

Slide 31

Cultural Problems – Uneven Growth Problems can be remedied or anticipated by… . Legitimate blending of media. Notwithstanding watering. Evaluating seedlings by size and quality. Setting pads level.

Slide 32

Cultural Problems – Tall & Spindly Growth Caused by… . An excess of nitrogen manure. Overwatering. Low light force. (A lot of shade) High temperatures.

Slide 33

Cultural Problems – Tall & Spindly Growth Problems can be fathomed by… . Adjust measure of nitrogen. Lessening recurrence of watering. Bringing down temperature. Giving all the more light. Utilizing development retardant. (B-Nine)

Slide 34

Diseases Plant ailments cause… . Seedlings to fall over. Lower to turn cocoa, spoil and dry.

Slide 35

Damping Off Botrytis Causes of Plant Disease Seedlings falling over brought about by either… . Stem spoil Damping off Lower leaves turning chestnut decaying & drying created by… . Botrytis

Slide 36

Controlling Plant Diseases Controlling stem decay & damping off Using cleaned media. Utilizing fungicides. Enhancing air dissemination around plants. Botrytis Increasing air temperature. Increment dissemination round plants. Utilizing appropriate fungicide.

Slide 37

Insects cause… . Plants to miss. Openings in the leaves or plant parts to miss.

Slide 38

Insects – Causes Plants being missing created by… . Slugs. Snails. Cockroaches.

Slide 39

Aphids Mealy bugs Scale creepy crawlies Thrips Whiteflies Flea bugs Fungus gnats Leaf diggers Cutworms Caterpillars Insects – Causes Holes in the leaves or missing plant parts are brought about by… .

Slide 40

Aphids Mealybugs Thrips Scale Insects

Slide 41

Whiteflies Flea Beetle Fungus Gnats Leaf Miners Insects

Slide 42

Cutworms Caterpillars Insects

Slide 43

Controlling Insects can be forestalled or controlled by… . Utilizing draws. Prescribed bug sprays.

Slide 44

Media Used in Transplanting Bedding Plants

Slide 45

Media is the material used to begin and develop plants. The 3 primary sorts are… . Soil Inorganic materials Commercially arranged blends.

Slide 46

Soil Must be blended with different materials, for example, peat greenery to include natural matter and enhance air circulation and seepage.

Slide 47

Inorganic Materials Improve air circulation & seepage. Illustrations incorporate… . Sand Finely ground stone Gravel

Slide 48

Perlite Vermiculite Inorganic Materials Perlite Expanded volcanic shake. Unbiased pH (7.0 – 7.5) Sterile Vermiculite Expanded mica Sterile

Slide 49

Commercially Prepared Mixes that are sterile, contain no creepy crawlies, weeds or maladies. Sorts incorporate… . Jiffy-Mix Redi-Earth Pro-Mix Sunshine Mix Metro Mix Other brands are accessible

Slide 50

Containers Used in Transplanting Bedding Plants

Slide 51

Seed Flat Cell Packs Containers Flat Plastic plate typically utilized for planting seeds. Cell packs Several little cell-like pots of plastic formed together utilized for planting maybe a couple seeds for every cell and offering without transplanting to another compartment.

Slide 52

Peat Pots Jiffy 7 Pellets Containers Peat pots Can be planted specifically in the dirt. Jiffy 7 pellet Can be gasped straightforwardly in the dirt.

Slide 53

Plastic Pots Clay Pots Styrofoam Pots Containers Plastic, Clay, & Styrofoam Pots Come in different sizes & shapes.

Slide 54

Hanging Baskets Containers Hanging Baskets Used to hang plants.

Slide 55

Standard Pots Azalea Pots Containers Standard Pots an indistinguishable size width at the top from it is high. Azalea Pots ¾ as high as its top distance across or width.

Slide 56

Transplanting Bedding Plants

Slide 57

Transplanting Bedding Plants Seedlings ought to have genuine leaves… . Not simply seed leaves or cotyledons. Holding up too long causes transplant stun. Hold plants by their leaves: Holding by the stem will wound the stem bringing about plant passing.

Slide 58

Transplanting Bedding Plants Media may should be extricated with a pot mark to keep from breaking stem & roots. Try not to shake medium off roots.

Slide 59

Transplanting Bedding Plants Use dibble or different intends to make an opening for the transplanting seedling. Plant seedling in the media in the new compartment somewhat more profound than it developed in the level and delicately squeeze media around roots.

Slide 60

Transplanting Bedding Plants Water delicately to settle media around roots. Keep sodden for a couple days to anticipate withering & drying. Develop and solidify off before offering.
