Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Flow­er­ing of most chrysan­the­mums is gov­erned by a spe­cific min­i­mum of day­light hours, which is why bou­quets are so pop­u­lar on Mother’s Day or any cel­e­bra­tion in late au­tumn or early win­ter. For any­one who prefers them in full gar­den dis­play, it helps if grow­ing tips are pinched out. This in­duces more side-shoots to form lots of colour­ful but smaller flow­ers, of­ten sin­gle daisies.
