Pinching out Argyranthemums

Zone Burton upon Trent, UK. | stan the man added on May 15, 2018 | Answered

Thanks for the answer re. dead heading, but my plants are still young and I would like to know "What pinching out is advisable before flowering? Should I only pinch out the central growing tip or is further pinching out required ?" The plants are still only 4" tall. regards.........stan the man.

If you feel the plants are tall and leggy you can indeed pinch them back. This can delay flowering. I personally would leave until after flowering before pinching or cutting back.
