Pinching and Growth Regulators

Pinch at 1-2 weeks after transplant as needed to shape. Oceana Blue habit will be improved with a 2500 ppm application of B-9. Sparkler varieties are quite vigorous and will likely need growth regulation. Apply growth regulators as needed for height control. B-9 at 2,500 to 3750 ppm should be effective.
