Container combos featured in GrowerTalks

combosx400Cornell research on combining edibles, herbs and ornamentals in patio containers is featured in and article in the January 2016 issue of GrowerTalks magazine, a trade magazine serving the greenhouse and garden center industry, starting on page 90.

The article was authored by technician Kendra Hutchins, horticulture faculty Bill Miller and Neil Mattson, and Cheni Filos MS ’14, production line manager at PanAmerican Seed.

More information about the trial and additional pictures are available on the Bluegrass Lane Annual Flower Trial website.

Mattson was also featured in a recent article in the Ithaca Journal, Is the future of vegetable farming indoors? Some of Mattson’s research is helping ornamental growers make use of their greenhouses in the late spring and summer after gardeners and landscapers have bought up the inventory. “Growing vegetable crops during those unused times of the year is a good way to have revenue during times when they otherwise wouldn’t have revenue,” Mattson said.
