You don't have to pinch your mums but, in order to grow a bushier, more compact plant that will bloom on time (during Fall) and produce more flowers, some pinching will be required.

Pinching involves the removal of stem tips. Pinching can be done with your finger tips or a pair of hand shears or sharp pruners. If you don't have long or strong finger nails I'd suggest a sharp pair of bypass hand pruners.

You can pinch the stem tips on the mums growing in your garden for the first time in spring: when the shoots have emerged and grown to approximately 6 inches tall. Pinch the stem just below the first set of leaves. Beneath where you pinched, new lateral (side) branches will develop along the stem. As soon as these new side branches become 6 to 8 inches long, the tips of these can be pinched. You can continue pinching like this until early July. I usually cease pinching around 4th of July because this is an easy date to remember. For some mums, which I know to be later bloomers, I might pinch a little beyond this time. I usually pinch about two or three times during the season.
