I WOULD LIKE TO START MUMS FROM SEED TO SALE IN FALL, NOT SURE WHEN THE BEST TIME IS. I'M THINKING MAY/JUNE. BUT THEN DON'T I HAVE TO PINCH BACK SEVERAL TIMES. ANY INFO WOULD BE HELPFUL.
I'M NEW TO THIS FORUM AND REALLY HAVE ENJOYED ALL THE GREAT INFO, SO FAR.

HAPPY PLANTING

RE: starting mums from seed

Do not cover the seed soil temp 60-70F & takes 10-15 days to germinate.......
from germination to transplant 4-8 weeks & from total time to flower 10-18 weeks (Ideal pH 5.2 to 6.0) You count back
pinching adds time to "Total Time' to flower & need short days to set flower buds......
Extension service can be a big help
