Pests and diseases
Aphids and leaf miners. Earwigs sometimes damage blooms. Plants may suffer from powdery mildew in dry weather.
Chrysanthemums are later than some other perennials to emerge in spring so make sure they have room and do not get crowded out.
Established clumps can be divided or take basal or soft cuttings which will root without heat.
