Welcome to the Chrysanthemums Direct Website and Online Shop

Dear Chrysanthemum Grower,

Welcome to our 2015 online mail order catalogue.

We offer the widest range of Chrysanthemums available to the UK market, with nearly 450 varieties for both growing in the garden and exhibition. For your convenience we have listed all our new varieties in one section, in the menu on the left, as well as in their correct sections. Our exhibition stock is all sourced from the top growers in the country, many varieties have been re-selected this year to give you the best flowers for exhibition.

As always, all the young plants that we will be sending out are propagated from clean stock plants, here on our nursery in Cheshire. We supply well rooted plug plants, in a new type of paper plug that does not restrict root growth, so you will get the best possible start to your growing season.

We are pleased to announce that again this year there has been no increase in either our plant prices or our postage and packaging charges.

Don't be fooled by Gardeners' World

Many of you will have seen Monty Don talking about Chrysanthemums in the BBC Gardeners' World television programme on Friday 20th March. Whilst it is good that Chrysanthemums are getting the coverage, we feel that Gardeners' World did not make the most of the opportunity to promote Chrysanthemums as a fantastic, easy plant to grow in the garden.

Ivor Mace, who was featured in the programme, and other top exhibitors will spend hundreds of hours each year tending their plants to produce the highest quality blooms to exhibit at flower shows around the country. However, to produce blooms for garden decoration or good flowers for cutting, you do not need to go to such lengths. Many Chrysanthemums will grow, and flower, in the open garden with no protection; they just need a sunny position and well-drained soil. Pick the early or mid-season flowering varieties, which will bloom from early September until the end of October. Sprays are probably the easiest, but if you grow a bloom variety, and dis-bud to leave just three blooms per plant, you will get a stunning display.

To extend the season, to give flowers from mid-October until the first sharp frost, go for the late sprays. These can grow quite tall but will produce many stems of flowers, which are ideal for cutting.

Of course, if you wish to grow the later flowering blooms, you will need a cold greenhouse. Grow the plants in pots outside for the summer and move undercover before flowering. It is not too difficult to get good flowers for Christmas in this way.

Have a look around our website for lots more growing advice and, with nearly 450 varieties to choose from, you are sure to find something that takes your fancy. If you want any further help, please either email us, or give us a ring on our Freephone number, 0800 046 7443.

Always remember that as soon as you receive your Chrysanthemums get them un-packed and potted up straight away. On Gardeners' World Monty Don's plants had obviously been left in the box for too long, and although they were good quality cuttings, they had begun to bend due to the lack of light.
