|My mums always do fine after transplanting but I can never get them to look as pretty and bushy as when I bought them. How do they get them to bloom like a bouquet?

|Chrysanthemums should be pinched or sheared back about twice a month until the beginning or middle of July. This should keep the plants dense and bushy as well as compact. At that point, stop pruning and allow the flower buds to develop.
