November and 15th
November and four pinching treatments viz
. No pinching, pinching at 30 DAT, pinching at 45 DAT and pinching at 30 and 45 DAT during the year 201o-11 and 2011-12. Among the planting times, 15th
October planting resulted in significantly maximum weight of flower, diameter of fully opened flower, diameter of flower disc, length of pedicel, longevity of intact flower and vase life. Single pinching at 30 days after transplanting improved weight of flower, diameter of fully opened flower, diameter of flower disc and longevity of intact flower, whereas more length of pedicel was registered in no pinching. Double pinching 30 and 45 days after transplanting registered more vase life.
