It’s All About Plant HealthBy Tim Hodson

Do you grow and sell perennials? Are you constantly looking for solutions to grow the healthiest perennial crops possible?

If you answered yes to either of those questions then mark Sept. 16 on you calendar.

At 2 p.m. eastern time on that day, GPN columnist and regular contributor Paul Pilon, horticultural consultant and owner of Perennial Solutions Consulting, will present a one-hour webinar, “Strategies for Growing Healthy Perennials,” to help growers get the most out of their perennial production.

As many growers already know, the production of perennial crops can be a bit more challenging than growing many other crops. It’s not just how to schedule and grow them using vernalization or manipulating day length to obtain flowering for certain perennials, but when growing perennials there are pest and disease problems as well as many less familiar issues that arise on occasion.

In this webinar, Paul will take a look at both common as well as less familiar challenges growers may encounter and share various methods of preventing and/or controlling these problems.

If you grow perennials, please be sure to join Paul on Sept. 16, for this informative one-hour webinar. Click here to register.

And don’t forget, on Oct. 7, GPN’s Plant Health Management Conference will take place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. To learn more about attending the conference click here.
