Q.How Best To Grow Chrysanthemums?

Zone CPT, 7560 | Anonymous added on June 2, 2022 | Answered

I’m slowly learning about plants and where to place them in my apartment or on my balcony as well as learning how much and how often to water them. Can chrysanthemums grow in shade and sun? How much sun can they take? The place I am thinking is that they would get full direct sunlight between say 1pm and 5pm. In the morning shade with lots of light. How much and how often must I water? To be honest, I don’t know what to do with them once they have finished flowering. I normally land up throwing them away because that’s when the plant dies. So I find them a waste. I would prefer for them to be outside. Thanking you kindly. I look forward to hearing back from you. Kind regards Barbara Hoon South Africa, CPT

Garden chrysanthemums are hardy to -32 degrees C. so should work fine in a container on your balcony. They like full sun and water when the soil dries. Pinch them back from April to June to keep them tidy and not so tall.
