Chrysanthemum are strong and rigid perennial plants with fragrant, pinnately lobed leaves and delicate flower heads, produced in a diverse form throughout late summer and autumn. Rich autumnal colours will look spectacular in your gardens whilst companion plants fade. Chrysanthemums make a fantastic focal point in pots and containers on a patio or in hanging baskets. You should expect to see Chrysanthemums grow to an approximate height and spread of approximately 45-60cm (18-24”). Please take care when handling Chrysanthemum as they can cause irritation to the skin.
Chrysanthemum are best planted during spring in moist, well-drained soil of loam within a neutral PH balance, although they will adapt to other soil varieties. Chrysanthemum will thrive if in a position of full sunlight. Plants grown in shady areas will suffer from weaker stems and less flowers. These plants require plenty of air circulation so ensure they are not planted in low-lying and wet conditions. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball and incorporate plenty of organic matter to improve overall drainage. Plant to the same depth and width, spacing plants 45-60cm (18-24”) apart. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place.
It is best to protect Chrysanthemum with a layer of mulch if being kept outdoors during the cold winter months. Alternatively, you can transfer your pots to a greenhouse or similar environment. Water your plants regularly, especially during periods of dry weather. Feed Chrysanthemum just before the flowering period with an appropriate fertiliser until new buds emerge.
