With our exceptionally warm Spring, I have a few mums which are coming into bloom already. Can I pinch off these buds? I would rather have them blooming at their usual time.

Trish: Amazing! I always thought that chrysanthemum bloom was triggered by lower light levels, not warm weather. I have heard it recommended to pinch mums once and even twice before mid-July to promote bushiness, which will lead to more bloom later.
