Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 6mm (&frac;1/4") in drills spaced 23cm (9") apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. When Chrysanthemum plants are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded chrysanthemum flowers to prolong the flowering period. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
