Now days it is the time to buy chrysanthemum cuttings in North India ( Punjab, Chandigarh, Haryana, New Delhi, Himachal, UP etc.), not very sure about the South India. Nurseries are having many varieties of chrysanthemum cuttings available. Most of my chrysanthemum stools which I had kept last year, for this years cutting had been destroyed. Some due to Heavy rains , and other were eaten up by the hairy caterpillars. So I have bought cuttings from local nursery and am in the process of planting them. This is a wake up call for the chrysanthemum ( Guldaudi ) lovers to plant their cuttings.
