Regional Stopping guide The dates we choose for stopping our chrysanths can never be
guaranteed to produce flowers on a specific date for a specific show,
weather conditions and other factors (such as garden aspect, location,
cultural routine etc) will all play a part in influencing speed of plant
development following the stop. The following information relates to
stopping dates for producing blooms for Shows during the first half of
September or November depending on classification of cultivar and are offered as a start point for new growers. Adjustments
should be made for later or earlier shows.
