At Colorado A & M we are looking forward to the time when we will be able to predict accurately when each bench of carnations 'frill cut its flowers. Only then will we be able to plan intelligently and fit our carnation production to the seasonal demand. The information we have so far is somewhat fragmentary. The following timing data has been obtained on healthy plants of William Sim and its White and Pink sports. Each month we will add to this information as more records are completed. We present it in this manner so that you in planning your next year's operations, may be able to use some of it in your thinking.
