Is it possible to take cuttings of chrysanthemums , I bought some large plants and part of the main stem split on the journey home .the very large plants were in the sale at £2 they are massive.so thought if I can make new plants for next year it will be brilliant.

    If they are annual types you can take cutting now or early spring, take three inch from none flowering side shoots and insert in pots of compost, keep in cover and do not over water. Perennial types you take cuttings in spring. It should say on the label what they are but nothing to stop you trying some cuttings anyway. You could drop a cutting into a jam jar of water and see if it grows roots.
