Planting Instructions: Plants should be spaced 1.5-3' apart. Mums should be planted in a well-draining sunny or part shade location with at least 6 hours of sun daily. Mums bloom due to their photoperiodic nature. When the plant senses a change in the length of darkness in late summer, it begins to set buds. Mums should be pinched throughout the growing season. This helps the plant branch out, becoming fuller and offering more blooms. A total of 2-3 pinches per plant is recommended before mid summer (by July 4th). Staking, netting, or corralling is highly recommended to keep mums straight and to prevent stems from breaking.
If your soil is clay-based, add amendments such as steer or chicken manure and compost to help with drainage and add fertility. Growing chrysanthemums are heavy feeders. Consistent applications of quality fertilizers will help your mums grow larger and produce more blooms. Choose a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer for monthly application from early spring through July.
