  • The “go-to” snaps for difficult transition harvest periods – late Summer to early Autumn and late Winter to early Spring.
  • Monaco tolerates warm Autumn conditions without flowering too quickly, and produces high-quality flower spikes when Autumn weather is unusually cool and dark.
  • Performs well all year in areas with moderate temperatures and little daylength fluctuation.
