Nemesia – Aromance® Pink
Dead-Heading Not Necessary
Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Plants may be trimmed back with a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at anytime, although this is not usually necessary. Plants may flush out of flower if night temperatures begin to stay in the upper 70's or above. If this happens a light trim to shape them would be good. The trim will increase branching and will result in more flowers once the temperatures fall and the plants begin flowering again.
A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
Use in hanging baskets, window boxes, landscaping and combinations.

Pinching and Growth Regulators
For all sizes of containers, pinch the liner 1–2 weeks after transplant; for containers larger than 6” and for hanging baskets, trim around the edge of the container as needed prior to spacing or hanging of the baskets.
Florel at 500 ppm is effective at increasing branching. Florel can also be used to schedule flowering (flowers will appear 4 weeks after Florel application). Sumagic at 5 ppm is effective at controlling growth if needed. Cold temperatures will also control growth.
Pest and Disease Management
General pest and disease practices as listed in notes.
Grower Tips for Other Nemesia
-Preventive fungicides are recommended at transplant.
-Florel at 500 ppm is effective at increasing branching.
-Sumagic at 5 ppm and cold temperatures are effective at controlling growth.
-Use a porous soil.
-Greenhouse air circulation and morning watering are critical in the winter months.
Air circulation and proper water management are critical.
