The information on this page has been moved and consolidated
Chrysanthemum page, if you would prefer to read it there!
Chrysanthemums should be divided every three to five years to avoid overcrowding
and promote maximum flowering. They should be divided in the spring when
new growth appears. Dig entire clumps and separate the plants with a sharp,
clean knife or spade. Remove dead and diseased plants. Replant as soon
as possible in a loose, well- drained, organic soil. Chrysanthemums should
periodically be moved to a new location, but if this is not feasible, the
soil should be sterilized chemically to reduce danger of disease and insect
