Trials conducted over 2 seasons (1990-91 and 1991-92) tested the effect of planting date (15 July to 30 Sep. at 2-week intervals) and pinching height (8, 10 and 12 cm) on flowering of chrysanthemum cv. Chandrama, grown for cut flowers. The days from planting to bud appearance and flower life on the plant were both favoured by the later planting dates. Increased plant height at pinching caused the buds to appear earlier but delayed budbreak.
