Back in the spring I decided to try chrysanthemums once again. It is literally years since I grew them in my garden. Back then, a very kind man in the village called Arthur Farnes, gave me cuttings.
I ordered them from Fothergills, a double pack.
They were a decent size and I potted them on. Once they got to a good size I planted them out into a row where I diligently watered, staked and fed them during the very hot weather.
In late August they began to do their stuff and ever since then I have had bunches and bunches. I don't cut them long as I can't bear to cut the buds. They are very long-lasting in vases.
And here is the row.
They are truly worth every penny and I can't wait to get some cuttings in spring next year.
