Descriptive Catalogue of Novelties

Excerpt from Descriptive Catalogue of Novelties: Chrysanthemums and Pelargoniums, New and Standard Varieties, Carnations, Etc There are many methods employed in raising these flowers, but our experience is that to grow the finest and largest Chrysanthemum flowers the plants should be planted in rich soil and be kept in a sunny sheltered location, with fences or trees to keep off the heavy wind. They then grow nicely, producing clear, large flowers, although they grow and bloom beautifully in almost any kind of soil or location, under good cultivation and careful tending. The plants must be grown from cuttings every year; they root quicker in sand, but are easily grown in any soil, In April and May is the best time to set them out; always plant them in the shade, where the sun does not strike them, until they are rooted, then transplant into pots or beds, digging quite deep and fertilizing with well-rotted manure. Pinch the tops off any time from June 1sth to July 1sth, and select the most strong and perfect shoots which break out from the stem, removing all side shoots and suckers; give plenty of water whenever needed, and careful and regular attention. As soon as they commence showing buds about the size of peas, strip the shoots of all but one bud on each shoot: selecting the most vigorous and perfect one. When the flowers are about half open, regular applications of manure water every seven days are very beneficial. If large show flowers are desired, the cuttings may be selected from the close of May to the middle of June, then let grow only one or two shoots, attending to the cultivation in the same manner as the above.
