|My mums just stopped blooming this week. When should I cut them back and how far should I cut them back?

|When you are sure they have finished blooming you can cut them back to 3-4 inches above ground level. They will rest for a few weeks and then they send up new stems. When the new growth is 4-6 inches long pinch out the growing tip to encourage branching which will result in a bushy plant. Best wishes with your mums.
