Pinching back growing tips will promote extra growth.

“Pinching Mums”

Here’s a Horticulture Tip from University of Missouri Extension:

Mums are fun to grow for fall color in your landscape, but to get a lot of flowers, you’ll need to pinch off the growing tips in early summer.  This will promote a lot of extra growth, and many more flower buds will be produced.  But by mid-July, it’s time to stop removing those growing tips and let the plant mature.  You’ll be rewarded with a great show this fall.

This has been Tim Baker, with a Horticulture Tip from University of Missouri Extension.
