When I used to plant mum cuttings they would often arrive already bent one way or another. We had to make sure we planted them all curving into the pot so that they would grow a nicely shaped pot of mums. Usually 4 cuttings to a 6" pot. They were also sprayed later on with a growth regulator ( B nine) to keep them short.
