New this season of 2021 another stunning variety and perfect for floral work, particularly weddings in this lovely Champagne colour!

Pooly's Champagne is an Autumn flowering type that has long stems, however flower size and stem length is actually determined on how you prune your plants.  If you want single large flowers then you will need to pinch your plants out which means removing the growing tip.  You will need to do this twice, in November and again in January to give around 4 stems per plant.  Remove any other stems and keep the strongest four. 

Be sure to stake the plants as they may get up to around 1.5 metres in height. As the flower buds form, if you are just wanting single quite large flowers then these should be "disbudded" which is removing all the little flower buds that form around the central flower bud.  The plant will then put all its energy into that single flower bud on each stem.  If you choose to grow Sussex white in this way then the flower size will be around 12-14cm in diameter if grown as a single bloom per stem.  Many people just let them flower and that is absolutely fine too but the flowers will be smaller which is what you may prefer.

In the autumn garden, Chrysanthemums are a star performer that bloom prolifically long after other plants have called it quits for the season. A native of China and prized for over 2,000 years, the name “chrysanthemum” comes from the Greek words for gold (chrysos) and flower (anthos) and is often affectionately shortened to “mum.”  

After flowering, some gardeners cut them back to about 10cm tall and cover with a light, airy mulch or straw although this is not actually necessary but can tidy the plants up.  Chrysanthemums can also be easily divided.

A fabulous cut flower that lasts so well in a vase, often for more than two weeks.  Pick them when they two thirds to three-quarters open, be sure to strip all of the leaves off so they do not sit under the water line.
