Hi All, I want to order some chrysanths, are they hard to grow, can I put them in pots, all advice gratefully received.



With a little care you should be successful, try spray types this year. Get rooted cuttings in May and you could plant them straight out in the garden. Cover with a piece of bubble wrap. Keep it off the plants with a few twigs. That should get you started.

easy to grow and you can grow them in pots bit they are usually taller than the pot mums you buy in the shops. I have some in a large pot and they have to be staked as they are about 3ft tall. there may well be dwarf varieties to chose from.

There are indeed dwarfs, i have one of them in my front garden.
I was out there yesterday having a look around, they've got winter damage to the top growth but ....... there's loads and loads of new growth there - amazing !
Mine's called 'Peterkin'.

I know that Worlds End nursery sell the shorter ones, have a look at their online list.

thank you all so much, I think the varieties I was going to choose would not be suitable for me, so I have saved a bit of money thanks again.
