I am looking to buy a Chrysanthemum 'Pennine Alfie' do yiu know where I could get one near Urmston Manchester? preferably in flower.
This incurved florists' chrysanthemum is not really suited for garden use. It is better for exhibitions.
Propagate annuals by basal cuttings or by seed sown where they are to flower, in spring. Propagate hardy perennials by division in autumn, after flowering or in early spring.
Pests, diseases or disorders
