Grower Tips

Grower Tips for Gaelic
-Winter vernalization is a plus, if possible.
-Light shade for optimal growth.
-Cool temperatures are also an effective growth regulator.
-Drought stress will cause foliage browning.

Plants that are allowed to bulk up over the winter will flower in the spring of the first season. Those plants brought in for spring production without vernalization will not bloom uniformly until the next season.
