How do I pinch back my chrysanthemums?


For bushier chrysanthemum plants, pinch them back to a height of about six inches until mid July, when flower buds for fall begin to form. When a chrysanthemum is pinched back, two new branches come out from each tip. To make larger flowers, remove all but the strongest flower bud on each shoot.
