Re: Tracy DS-A was last night's experience

One of the toughest things I have getting across to the people in our
nursery is to pinch/cut back and TDSA is big on that.  But you can even get
that from her mag articles - usually in FG.  I would bet , though, that the
book provides more pictures so the reader can really get the idea of what a
difference it makes.

I end up doing just about all the pinching unless we're working together and
I point it out to them.  Some plants, especially those in containers for
sale, look thin and spindly if not cut back.  It can make a big difference
at sale time to have a full, lush plant rather than a tall floppy one with
only a few blooms.  Kalimeris is a terrific example.
