Chrysanthemum Question
« on: April 02, 2024, 22:58 »
I picked up a chrysanthemum plant in the reduced section of the supermarket. It didnít do well on the windowsill so I divided it into 4 plants which are now in the greenhouse.

I have no idea of the variety.

Would these possibly be hardy enough to go outside?

Any clues gratefully accepted.

Thank you.

If you have 4 it is worth trying. If the original plant came from a supermarket you can bet it was grown in a Dutch greenhouse, but that doesnít mean it isnít hardy. Be warned they do often treat chrysanthemums with growth retardants to keep them houseplant sized, so it may grow a lot taller than you were expecting.

The only place I know that offers any kind of variety for the home gardener to grow  is the Sarah Raven on-line shop. She has a growing guide for them
