The late singles make up a section of Chrysanthemum that is becoming increasingly popular. To get the best quality blooms they will probably need some protection at flowering time, which is in November. As a cut flower they are long-lasting and have the advantage of being highly scented.
Late single varieties can be grown with up to 12 flowers per plant. Each stem will need disbudding to produce large flowers. To make it easier to move them undercover, grow in pots, starting in a 9cm (3.5") and potting on twice, to finish in a 23cm (9") pot. Use a good quality potting compost, such as John Innes No. 3, and feed weekly with our tried and tested fertilizer, click here
