These hardy, compact Chrysanthemums are fantastic for adding late summer and autumn colour to your garden, just as other plants are starting to fade. Each plant forms a natural, neat mound of foliage which is completely smothered with flowers for weeks.

  • Chrysanthemum ‘Moviestar Blanchett Pink’ - A sumptuous display of deep pink flowers in autumn.
  • Chrysanthemum ‘Moviestar Blanchett Yellow’ - Bright golden blooms bring sunshine to your pots on the cloudiest days.

Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. Pinch out the top 5cm when stems reach a height of 15 cm to produce a bushier plant with more flowers. Repeat with every consecutive 15cm of growth until the plant forms flower buds. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise chrysanthemum plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days.
Plant hardy chrysanthemums out in patio containers or borders in rich fertile, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun. Feed and water regularly. Apply a deep mulch in late autumn to protect the crowns of the plants over winter. Leave flowered stems intact until spring as these will also offer some protection from frost.
