Chrysanthemum.Help Please ?
I have grown some chrysanthemums outdoors this year from plants bought over the net,which have now finished flowering and looking very bedraggled . Will they survive and flower again next year if I cut them down and put a spadeful of home made compost on top ?.At the same time I bought some late flowering ones which I kept in pots ,hoping for flowers nearer Xmas,I made the mistake of putting them into the greenhouse ( cold one ),too soon,because they too,have finished flowering and I am not sure of how I should now treat them.
Because they were so beautiful,I would like to continue growing them because they become very interesting ,just as the vegetables are coming to an end.
