time to first flower and node count increase were calculated for each plant. Data were analyzed with the SAS (Version 9; SAS Institute, Cary, NC) mixed model procedure (PROC MIXED), and pairwise comparisons between treatments were performed with Tukey

potential is determined by the genotypic bud fruitfulness and the traditional crop control strategy achieved by winter pruning, node count adjustment, and, for further fine-tuning, by shoot and cluster thinning. However, manual cluster thinning is time

( Table 1 ). This discrepancy is explained by the presence of blind nodes (count buds remained closed with no shoot growth), which averaged four to five blind nodes per vine in all treatments. This suggested that the number of blind nodes were not related

the base of the inflorescence was measured and the number of nodes counted. The first three true bracts and the three youngest fully expanded green leaves were selected from each of three stems from each plant. A segment of stem was harvested to 10 cm

. Additionally, dianthus and penstemon were measured for node count, and inflorescence length was recorded for penstemon and snapdragons. Results for yarrow, snapdragon and dianthus grown in two different locations were variable and support the idea that response
