Flowers are used by us to provoke the feelings of love and happiness because they have the power to make people happy and cheerful. A study was carried out to review on effect of pinching on flower crop. The number of experiments reviewed that pinching after 4 to 6 week after transplanting gives number of leaves, number of primary branches, plant spread, maximum number of flowers, number of seeds per flower, test weight and seed yield per ha with better seed quality parameters. From study plants pinched between 4 to 6 week after transplanting were found best for better growth, flowering and yield of chrysanthemum (annual), chrysanthemum (perennial), marigold, China aster, carnation etc.
