Taking Chrysanthemum Cuttings.
If you have last seasons plants potted or in pots cut them down to about
175mm.Next stand them on a window sill or in a heated glasshouse.After
about two weeks they should start to shoot from the dormant buds at the
base of each stem.When the shoots are about 75 mm long take them as
softwood cuttings and place 6 ofs them around the edge of a 100mm pot
ideally a clay pot but plastic will be fine.
The key here is to use a very open compost of 50 percent peat or peat
substitute and 50 percent silver sand or horticultural vermiculite.
After about 10 days the cutting should start to root and once rooted you
can pot them into 75 mm pots for growing on.
