chrysanthemum pot plant: can i plant it out?
Hi. I've been given 'crown in hampshire' chrysanthemum pot plant as a gift. i'm not a massive fan of Chrysanthemums but i'd like to keep it and i'd much prefer it in the garden. my question is, is it likely to live? I've checked RHS site & it doesn't say anything about planting pots outside, the advice on the label is for if it's kept as an indoor plant. Can anyone offer any advice please?

It is likely marketed as an indoor plant because it is an annual and will only live for one season. You can plant it outdoors, but you will have to replant every year. The same will go for indoors. They will start to degrade rapidly after a certain point.
I have been able to keep one alive for 2 years, and killed it off by choice, since it was too far in degradation to keep around by that point.
thanks Bush Doctor. i'll probably plant it outside & get rid once it fades. Thanks again
