The possibility using some organic wastes as growth medium and nutrition method on the growth of English daisy (Bellis perennis)

The possibility using of some organic wastes as the growth media and nutrition method on the growth of English daisy plant was investigated by a factorial experiment with two factors (growth media and nutrient solution) based on completely randomized block design with 45 treatments in three replications. This study was conducted in a farm located in the village of Lakan, Rasht. The first factor was the different growth media and the second factor was three methods of fertilization including without fertilization, fertilization with spraying and soil fertilization. Results showed that the maximum growth was observed in medium contains soil, municipal waste compost, Azolla compost at   ratio for every substrate and medium contains soil and municipal waste compost in a 1:1 ratio. Azolla compost, alone, was not suitable for English daisy plant because was not obtained appropriate results in most indices of growth. Although the effect of nutrition method was not significant on most indices of growth in this experiment, soil fertilization had the better impact than other methods. In conclusion, it seems that the combination of soil, municipal soil waste compost, Azolla compost (each on   of volume) are suitable substrates for growth of English daisy plant that along with soil fertilization caused to increase the growth of plant.
