Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise chrysanthemums to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Transplant into containers in full sun, or in well drained soil in sunny borders. Feed and water regularly.
Decorative and incurving chrysanthemum plants will benefit from 'disbudding' to produce larger flowers. Remove all buds and side shoots except for the central bud on each main stem. Spray chrysanthemums can be allowed to develop naturally. However pinching out the top 5cm when stems reach a height of 15 cm will produce a bushier plant with more chrysanthemum flowers. Repeat with every consecutive 15cm of growth until the plant forms flower buds. Protect the tall flower stems by supporting them with stakes.

A SPECTACULAR SUCCESS
By Keith Dipper 20-10-2013
I moved in to a new house with a overrun garden and decided to start again from scratch. One of my Choices was the Chrysanthemum collection which I planted in three of my five beds after allowing the plugs to establish indoors for several weeks. They grew to some 40" tall and started flowering in August and are still going strong now. The only problem I have had is re staking them to support the large amount of flowers.
