Clever Gardening Technique

Chicken Wire for Mums
Following your last trimming of chrysanthemum stems to encourage bushy growth and blooms, support plants growing closely in beds with chicken wire unrolled the length of the bed and staked one foot horizontally above the soil. The stems will grow up through the holes and support themselves to their full height without toppling over. Setting up the wire support is easier than staking each plant, selective cutting of blossoms is easier, and clean-up is quickly-accomplished.
