The effect of seven adjuvants, used alone or with either GA3
or paclobutrazol, on the growth of Chamaecyparis lawsoniana ‘Ellwoodii’,
Juniperus communis ‘Hibernica’, Weigela florida
‘Styriaca’ and Forsythia ‘Maluch’ was examined.
The applied chemicals (Regulaid, Agridex, Falimorph, PP-222, Atplus 411F, Nopon, Sandovit)
increased the effect of GA3 or
paclobutrazol on the growth of investigated shrubs. Although the
effectiveness of particular adjuvants was similar, adjuvants when used
alone, without growth regulators, had no effect on the growth of shrubs.
