Flower Garden – Part IX – Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum also known as Guldaudi in Hindi or Shevanti in Marathi are beautiful flowers. They are known across the world for its cultural significance.

We here in India use them for worshiping. I remember my childhood days when chrysanthemums were synonymous with yellow flowers. Well… No more…. They are now available in more color combinations than you can imagine.

If you ever thought I don’t struggle with plants… LO… here you are… I am about to reveal one of my many secrets.. I am not very good with Chrysanthemums. Somehow I don’t get right. My plants don’t survive long or if they do survive, they don’t bloom. Sometimes it makes me wonder, has all that hybridization made chemical fertilizer an essential for them?? But this is just what I wonder… Prove me wrong! Grow these amazing flowers and send me pics and help me grow them 🙂 🙂 🙂

I can tell you what i know about chrysanthemums.. They love sunlight.. bright direct sunlight and that they need regular pruning. Pruning is really very very important for these little plants.

Happy Gardening 🙂
