'er indoors wants me to grow some cut flowers and chrysanth's are what she has in mind. Any advice on starter plants and what to expect in my first year?

Asked from the GoYpedia chrysanthemums page



Best to plant in the spring, either from mail order, or GC if you're lucky, good chance for next year. If you have the space you can grow them in a row with support, like raspberries, if they are purely for picking.

I would go for sprays. I would also give them a ring first for a bit of advice as to varieties. They are very helpful.

I would agree with Scrumpy sprays are less labour intensive.
