Growing Guide
GROWING NOTES
Chrysanthemum can grow to approximately 6" in height, and will produce large thick yellow blooms with white-tipped petals.

 

Start indoors in flats 6-8 weeks prior to the average last frost of the spring. Small seeds should be tamped lightly into the surface of the soil-medium or covered with a very thin layer. Seeds are light dependant and should not be buried. Germination should take place between approximately 1-3 weeks.

 

Chrysanthemum prefers full sun and will do best with moist, rich, well-drained soil. Do not allow soil to dry out.

MAINTAINING
To promote more blooms, you can periodically pinch off the top growth and first set of leaves, starting when the plant reaches a height of 6" and continuing this until late June. Doing every two weeks or so early in the season will help promote fuller plants with more blooms.
