Description

This flower is on many gardener’s “favorite list” as it is perfect for that time in autumn when your flower beds are looking a bit ragged, and will liven them up.

The mix has  the  chrysanthemum colour range  of crimsons, yellows, purples, reds, whites and more,   in single and semi double forms.

Although usually grown from cuttings, they are simple to raise from seeds. Sown early enough in spring (even as late as October), they germinate easily, and with little difficulty they will bloom the same year.

This group sometimes called  “florists chrysanthemums” are very popular both in the garden and for cut flowers.

 

Sowing advice

Sow 2mm deep into moist well-drained seed compost. Propagate 15-20°C. Germination takes 10-18 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle to 8cm pots. Acclimatise and plant out after danger of frost has passed with 45cm spacing. Can be sown directly from October  into well prepared soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.
