New Cultivars 2013
report By Ivor Mace

There is nothing more exciting for a grower of specialist plants than to try out a new variety.   Every year hybridisers release new cultivars of chrysanthemums and there is always something to whet your appetite.  This year there are not quite as many new ones on offer but the ones Iíve seen certainly look good.
