For landing use cuttings or young bushes. The plant should look healthy, with strong shoots and green, not dry and not yellow, leaves. Seeds, hybrid forms do not multiply, as the features of adult chrysanthemums are not inherited. If high quality varietal bush is required, it is purchased in a special nursery.

Chrysanthemums recommend landing in spring. The land should warm up to + 12 ° C in a depth of 15 cm. In Central Russia and Siberia, landing time can be postponed until the first decade of June, depending on weather conditions. In the southern regions, landing falls on the beginning of April, after the end of frosts. It is better to choose a cloudy and cool day.

For autumn landing, the second half of September will suit, for the southern regions – the beginning or mid-October, while the air temperature keeps from + 10 ° C to + 15 ° C. Under adverse conditions in the autumn period, the cuttings are planted into the container. After rooting – sprouts should appear – the container is placed in a cool dark place. In the spring such a plant can be placed on the balcony or land in an open ground.

Chrysanthemums love solar and good warm areas protected from wind. Halftime for them does not fit.

Soil for planting Choose fertile, saturated with organic substances. Peat, humus, overwhelmed compost is used for mulching. Plants prefer neutral soils, grow well on weakly acid. Supal – the most suitable option for chrysanthemum, but also on loamy soil the bushes grow and bloom.

The main danger is stagnation of water in the soil, then the roots of the plant begin to rot. Therefore, large river sand is added to the soil for chrysanthemum. Can be equipped with a special drainage system, or make a bed, raised above the general level of land with boards – the so-called body structures.

In one place of chrysanthemums grow about 5 years, then gradually fill all the free space, the flowers are minced or disappeared at all. The soil remaining after them, for the cultivation of new colors of this species will not fit – there is a break for about three years.

To prepare a place for landing chrysanthemums, you need to make a number of events.


  • Pumping the ground to a depth of 20 cm;
  • make feeding (superphosphate 50 g and potash salt 30 g per 1 m2);
  • lower the acidity of soil with chalk or wood ash if necessary.

In winter, flowerbed closes foliage.

In the spring, they are drunk together with foliage, make humus, you can in the wells for seedlings.

Between bushes make a distance:

  • For low-speed species – about 30 cm;
  • for the average – 40 cm;
  • For high varieties – up to 50 cm.

Cuttings for spring landing are prepared in January-February. Cut shoots are planted into a prepared substrate and necessarily pinch. This is done to stimulate the growth of the root system. Rooted rooted cuttings in spring without pinching.

Bushes in containers 3-4 hours before disembarkation watered very carefully so that the earthen one could be removed from the tank. For each plant, a hole is digged by a depth of 20 cm – for low grades, up to 40 cm – for high. The dimensions of the seedling and its root system affect the depth. The base of the bush is placed at the same level, on which it was before the transplant. The neck of the root can not deepen more than 2 cm.

After planting chrysanthemums:

  • the soil is watered and compacted;
  • sprinkled with a layer of humus;
  • Cover for 3-4 days film.

How to care for?

One-headed chrysanthemums require the following stages of care:

  • watering;
  • loose;
  • feeding;
  • border;
  • Pinzing.

Regular and abundant irrigation is required by chrysanthemums over the period of growth, the formation of buds and flowering. Then watering is done as the soil drying.

Soil around the bushes after irrigation looser, remove weeds and mulched peat or overworked manure.

For the growth of the bush and root system fed by nitrogen fertilizers. They are brought 2-3 weeks after landing. For the formation of buds and lush flowering, phosphorus-potash feeders are used 2 times a month. In addition, feed with a cow or chicken litter in weak solutions.

Feed the bushes in the morning after the rain or abundant irrigation, trying not to get on the leaves. Fertilizers contribute:

  • Before staining buds,
  • After the end of flowering.

Flowers advise during the appearance of buds do not make feeding and not even water. It is considered – this contributes to a more abundant flowering.

Take bushes at a height of 18-20 cm. Between plants in the ground, we set the rings at the top, and the adjacent bushes are tied up. So the stem will be able to form directly and will not fall.

Strong and thick stem in one-headed chrysanthemum is formed by pinching. Remove steps that growing on the parties from the central escape from the sinuses of the leaves until the stem was wondered. And also cut off or pinch the side buds. Do it need the whole season.

From the buds choose one – the strongest, it becomes one large and spectacular flower. Give to bloom all the bud at the same time – it means, instead of one large flower 5-6 smaller will dissolve. To create a decorative single-liter chrysanthemum make pinzing buds.

The very first bud is customary, as it becomes a large load for the rapid bush, slows down the growth and development of the plant. And bud, and inflorescence from it are small.

Large flowers are formed from the second or third bud. At the same time, only one leave, after selecting the bud, cuts all the appearing side shoots and buds. Also remove the yellowed and dry leaves.

Sutting a chrysanthemus for a bouquet to prevent squeezing, it is necessary:

  • Do not pour water in a vase to the top, the stem is immersed by 10-15 cm;
  • From the bottom remove all the leaves;
  • Cropped with stem form or cruciform;
  • Water change in 2 days, it should stand for about 12 hours;
  • Do not put a bouquet for a sunny place, half-length and coolness is recommended.

To the water for better conservation of colors add to 1 liter – 1 hour. L. Sugar or pinch salt, aspirin – on 3 liters of half.

If cut flowers plan to transport, then the bouquet put in cool water with the addition of ice for a couple of hours.

After the end of flowering, the plant on the flower bed is cut into approximately one third and feed organic fertilizers. For successful wintering, the bush is plunged, covered with a sweetheart, and on top – polyethylene or tarralet. Spring shelter remove.

Unstable to frost varieties for the winter are digging and stored in drawers with wet ground in a cool room at 0 ° C. If shoots appear on the bushes, they are cut off. Spring planted in open ground.
