Beware there are other Chrysanthemum available on the market today, but you can be sure when you purchase one of our products you are investing years of experience, development and expertise and that the best products available have been selected for you.
We suggest you keep these in the home for a few weeks watering regularly until they look like they need to be replaced. Chrysanthemum should also be kept well clear for heating or cooling vents and high air flow areas within the home and when finished all you need to do is plant them in the garden. To plant them is a simple operation. Just pick a spot in the garden where it gets plenty of sun and the soil is perfectly drained. A little trick is to add some compost and put it in the bottom of the hole and then put a thin layer of soil over this to prevent the roots form burning. When you are planting, just knock the Chrysanthemum out of the pot carefully tickling its roots a little, and plant into the hole. You'll notice there are often a few shoots at the sides of the pot.
These can be removed, and if they've got roots, planted them separately and new plant may grow. Add some more compost on top and these plants will thrive. It is best to acclimatize the product after being in the home and slowly get it used to outdoor conditions using slow steps like placing them under the Patio for a week or so before placing into the garden. Cut them back by half around the end of February and feed them with some slow release fertilizer and you will enjoy a great show at Mothers Day.
