Approximately 100+ poinsettia cultivars provided by the leading breeders/propagators such as Ball, Dümmen, Ecke and Syngenta, will be on display during the Rutgers annual Poinsettia Open House

Approximately 100+ poinsettia cultivars provided by the leading breeders/propagators such as Ball, Dümmen, Ecke and Syngenta, will be on display during the Rutgers annual Poinsettia Open House.

The Open House will take place from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2 between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Floriculture Greenhouses that are located behind Blake Hall, directly off of Nichol Ave. on the Cook Campus of SEBS. Regardless of whether you sell them, buy them or just enjoy a colorful display, it will be a chance to see what’s new, and learn more about growing, handling and marketing this important crop.

They are finishing the crop (over 100 cultivars) under “cold” temperature regimes and provide water and inorganic nutrition thru a computer controlled trickle irrigation system. Anyone interested in energy conservation or moving to trickle irrigation management should find the open house of interest. The program is informal and free of charge. It is not a plant sale, rather an educational opportunity open to anyone interested in learning more about this sometimes frustrating and still important floricultural crop.

On Dec. 2, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. RCE Colleagues Patricia Hastings and Steve Rettke will each offer one-hour programs in core and category pesticide training areas. Eligible attendees may receive two core and two category 1A recertification credits for attendance. For more information call Ms. Nicollet Graf at 732.932.9301.
