Abstract/Contents:"Fifteen garden aster cultivars were grown under outdoor growing conditions to test the effects of planting date, fertility, and pruning treatments. Nine of the 15 cultivars performed adequately and were judged suitable for production. The June planting date produced plants that averaged 36.4 cm tall and 49.1 cm wide. Bloom dates ranged from early August until early October. The largest plants were those fertilized with Osmocote 14-14-14 plus a weekly application of 500 ppm nitrogen (N) using 20-10-20 or those receiving a constant liquid fertilization regime of 180 ppm N using 20-10-20. Shearing proved to be as effective as hand pinching and had no effect on blooming time or duration. The most aesthetically appealing plants were produced by shearing treatments that consisted of monthly shearing until 1 August or 15 August."
