Humate polyanthus quick trial
I did a trial of polyanthus Pacific Giants bought at 16 weeks after sowing.
I used only the most uniform sized plants and set the middlers and runts aside.
I used 3 mixes: straight Tui potting mix, 80/20 Tui potting mix and humate, 80/20 Tui potting mix and Turbo Garden Blend.
After only 26 days, the Turbo group were well ahead in overall size, flower count and leaf count. The attached image shows one tray, with the centre plants in black pots clearly less mature.
After 46 days the trial has gone out the window because I’ve sold too many plants!
I wasn’t expecting the middlers to be saleable but I’ve just potted them up in 80/20 seedling mix with the Turbo Garden Blend.
