How to Grow Chrysanthemum from Seed

Chrysanthemums come in a whole range of sizes, shapes and colours and provide a reliable splash of colour during late summer and autumn outlasting almost everything else as winter draws in.

Chrysanthemum seeds can either be sown in Spring time or in Autumn for over-wintering. Sow in trays, scatter the small seeds across the surface of a moist, free-draining, seed compost and cover very lightly with vermiculite. Cover the tray with polythene to maintain humidity, until the first seedlings are visible. Germination takes around 7-10 days at 18-20C. Keep the germinating seedlings moist at all times.

As soon as the plants are large enough to handle transplant into large individual 3 inch pots and grow on at around 15C .

Pot up again as required or plant out after all danger of frost has passed.
