Abstract

A survey was conducted over 12 months to determine productivity and compare the relationships between the different shoot types of three rose cultivars of different ages. The plants were trained in a "vase-shaped' architecture. Data were collected on 1 year-old 'Sonia', 8 year-old 'Gabrielle' and 7 year-old 'Kardinal'. The ratio of basal shoots:branches: shoots (flowering and non-flowering shoots) over one season was 1 : 2 : 7 (Sonia), 1 : 3 : 8 (Gabrielle) and 1 : 3 : 11 (Kardinal). Of the shoots produced, 44% (Sonia), 29% (Gabrielle) and 19% (Kardinal) were marketable stems and the remainder were either unmarketable (discarded after harvest) or blind shoots (not harvested). A high number of unmarketable stems occurred in summer and were associated with high temperatures and the marketing requirement to harvest the entire crop over 2-3 days. The majority of blind shoots were
