Description

A very useful bright yellow for growing outdoors with no protection making it a very useful cutflower. Early flowering, this old variety needs stopping in approx. 5th May for mid September flowers (slighly earlier than in our catalogue) and allowing plants to produce 4 or 5 flowering stems. Earlier or later “stopping” (the removal of the growing tip) will have the effect of advancing or delaying flowering. Reducing the number of stems allowed to flower to say 3 or 4 will result in larger flowers. Being a bloom type Chrysanthemum you will need to “disbud” as soon as the central flowering  bud in each stem can be seen and the smaller side buds can be safely removed by pinching out. Be careful not to damage the main bud. This is also known as “securing the bud”.
