Potting On Chrysanthemums

Potting On Chrysanthemums

We recommend our young plants are potted on into 9cm (3½in) pots, using a good quality, multi-purpose compost. Each cultivar has different characteristics - some may be tall and thin others short and thick, but each will give good results if handled correctly. Water in after potting, but also leave to almost dry out before watering again. Keep out of direct sun for the first few days, until the roots are beginning to develop. Then they will take as much sun as you can give them.

The young plants will have sufficient food in the compost for 3 to 4 weeks and extra feeding before this stage is not recommended.
