Which chrysanthemums should be dug up for the winter

In the fall, garden and vegetable crops need special care to survive the winter. This also applies to chrysanthemums as some varieties need to be dug up so that the plant does not die.

OBOZ.UA took a closer look at this issue. It is important to protect the bushes from cold and frost, but it all depends on the variety of the crop.

Sharp temperature fluctuations during the cold season have a strong effect on any plant. Therefore, owners often dig up chrysanthemum bushes to ensure abundant flowering next season and protect the plant from diseases and pests.

This is especially true for chrysanthemums that are not adapted to low temperatures like Flamingo, Anna Yaroslavna, Sunshine and Natalie. These varieties must be dug up in the fall.

However, you need to fertilize them first. You can apply potash and phosphorus fertilizer. This will make it easier for the plant to survive the transplant. Then cut off old, damaged, and broken branches. Water the soil around the plant to make it easier to dig up the chrysanthemum.

You can store the flowers in any room, but the temperature should be between 0 and +5 degrees Celsius. You can place the bushes in a cellar with an earthen floor, which will be an advantage for the plant because it will be able to take moisture from the floor.

You can also prepare boxes or other containers with a mixture of sand and peat, which are mixed in a one-to-one ratio. But after digging, do not immediately put the plants in a box, leave them in the fresh air until the onset of severe frosts.

Earlier, OBOZ.UA published an instruction that will help to propagate chrysanthemums in the fall by cuttings.
