Chrysanthemum ‘Accolade’

These reliable plants provide a bright display on a sunny balcony or patio from summer through autumn. This bright red hybrid is part of the new ‘Extravaganza’ range, and will grow into a dome about 70cm high. Plant into good-quality potting mix with fertiliser added, water regularly and apply liquid feeds fortnightly. When flowering finishes, cut the plant back to 10cm. You can then plant it in the garden, or place the pot out of the limelight until next summer.
