Chrysanthemum Plant Care:
We pinch the plants back before shipping to promote bushiness, but any strong shoot which is getting ahead of the plant should be pinched back. Do not pinch after 4th of July. Good drainage is a must for successful overwintering. Mulch for winter protection only in very cold areas and be sure to remove it before the spring thaw. Can be divided every 2-3 years in spring to increase longevity.
