Sowing, Seeds, Planting If you have a greenhouse, rooted cuttings of outdoor varieties can be potted on in early spring and grown on in a well-ventilated greenhouse or conservatory. When the roots have filled the pot, which should be around April, they can be potted on and moved to a cold frame. Plant into their final positions outside from early May, spacing them 45-60cm (18-24in) apart. Indoor varieties can be planted directly into soil beds in the greenhouse; space them 30-40cm apart and water in well. Alternatively, on arrival they can be treated the same as outdoor varieties. In early June, transplant into their final pots (20cm-23cm (8-9in) in diameter), and move them outside until around the end of September, at which point they should be moved into a frost-free greenhouse.
Care Tips After planting, water generously for 1-2 weeks so the plants get well established. Apply a balanced liquid feed every two weeks from midsummer until the flower buds start to appear. They will require supporting with a cane and tying in as they grow. After flowering, cut back the main stem to about 20cm (8in), lift the shortened plants and overwinter in a frost-free place.
Flowering September - December
Vase Life Chrysanthemum need no special conditioning – they are a classic, long-lasting cut flower with a 2-3 week vase life.
Harvesting Flower production: up to 4 months
Cooking Notes The petals are edible, scatter over plates of food.
