DateTime date = DateTime.Now.AddMonths(-1);
DateTime date2 = new DateTime(date.Year, date.Month, 21, date.Hour, date.Minute, date.Second);
label1.Text = date2.ToString();
or alternatively:
DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
DateTime date = now.AddMonths(-1);
int days = DateTime.DaysInMonth(date.Year, date.Month);
DateTime date2 = now.AddDays(-days - now.Day + 21);
label1.Text = date2.ToString();

You can use DateTime Constructor's 6th overload

DateTime dt=new DateTime(2011,2,21,12,1,10);
Label1.Text=dt.ToString();

Hard coding the values may solve this immediate problem but does nothing to provide a solution that will work in all cases.

You can use the appropriate constructor of the DateTime[^] structure and display it.

You are not mentioning about any rules for deriving the date. If there is any use the AddDays method accordingly.
