Does anyone know of any good books on Chrysanthemum care, cultivation, etc?

I have been enjoying the football type mums my uncle has been supplying me with for the past five years and this year I am experimenting with some exhibition type mums. I'd love to read more about their history and culture. I'd also love a good reference guide for my library. I have access to a really amazing library and I'm shocked not to find any mum books published past 1950!

You might try the National Chrysanthemum Society or Google 'chrysanthemum culture' or even YouTube will give you some helpful hints. Check to see if you have a local Mum Society, they are always willing to help.

I'll check them out.

I find YouTube helpful for tasks. Books, though... nothing beats curling up with a good garden book on a long winter night and dreaming!
