Chrysanthemum flower seeds, also known as Sevanti or Shevanti in some regions, are popular flowering plants known for their colorful blooms and diverse varieties. Here’s a guide on how to grow Chrysanthemums from seeds:

  1. Seed Selection: Choose high-quality Chrysanthemum seeds from a reputable supplier. Fresh seeds typically have a higher germination rate.

  2. Timing: Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last frost date in your area. Chrysanthemums can also be directly sown outdoors after the last frost, depending on your climate.

  3. Soil Preparation: Use well-draining soil with a pH level around 6.5-7.0. A mix of garden soil, sand, and compost works well. Ensure the soil is loose and fertile.

  4. Sowing Seeds:

    • Sow seeds on the soil surface, pressing them gently into the soil.
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged until seeds germinate.
    • Seeds usually germinate in 7-14 days when kept at around 70-75°F (21-24°C).
  5. Light and Temperature:

    • Once seedlings emerge, provide them with plenty of light. A sunny location is ideal, or you can use grow lights indoors.
    • Chrysanthemums prefer cool temperatures during germination but thrive in full sun once established.
  6. Transplanting:

    • When seedlings have developed several true leaves and the risk of frost has passed, transplant them into individual pots or into the garden.
    • Space plants about 12-24 inches apart, depending on the variety.
  7. Watering and Fertilizing:

    • Keep the soil evenly moist throughout the growing season, especially during dry periods.
    • Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer once a month to promote healthy growth and flowering.
  8. Support and Pruning:

    • Depending on the variety and growth habit, some Chrysanthemums may benefit from staking to support their stems.
    • Pinch back growing tips when seedlings reach 6-8 inches tall to encourage bushier growth and more flower buds.
  9. Pest and Disease Management:

    • Monitor plants for pests such as aphids or spider mites. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
    • Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases, and avoid overhead watering if possible.
  10. Blooming:

    • With proper care, Chrysanthemums typically bloom in late summer or fall, depending on the variety and planting time.
    • Deadhead spent flowers to promote continuous blooming.
  11. Winter Care:

    • In colder climates, mulch around plants in late fall to protect roots from freezing temperatures.
    • Consider lifting and overwintering plants indoors in containers if your climate experiences harsh winters.

By following these steps, you can successfully grow Chrysanthemums (Sevanti or Shevanti) from seeds and enjoy their vibrant blooms in your garden or containers.
