Pinch at transplant, if needed. If plants are pinched use a preventative fungicide spray to preclude disease formation. Florel at 500 ppm can be used instead of pinching. 5-10 ppm Sumagic can be used to control growth if needed. Cold temperatures can also be used for growth regulation.

General pest and disease practices as listed in notes. Symphony is sensitive to pythium, phytopthera, and botrytis. Maintaining proper pH, (5.8-6.2) and good sanitation practices will help alleviate problems. Increased air circulation, proper water management and good soil porosity are also critical.
