My valley of white mums this morning : happy Wednesday! #garden #gardentime #gardenchat #autumn #white

Wasn’t gonna do it … But I went aheAd and cut a few English roses rather then letting them form rose hips. #gardenchat #autumn #cutflowers

Each  Autumn a few of my local garden centers carry a few new varieties of chrysanthemums.  It is so much fun to look at the spectacular show on display at the center and pick a few new ones to grow in my home garden. This month while looking for a tree to replace one we lost in the garden and pick up some fresh farm produce it was fun to share the first signs of Autumn from Benchs Greenhouse.

My Favorite Color of Chrysanthemums 2014

 

Growing Tip

  • Mums can be grown in the landscape or in containers in your home or garden.  Here are a few of tips I use to keep my chrysanthemums blooming and even growing again next year.
  • Be sure to plant the chrysanthemum in full sun in the landscape adding mulch and organic matter.
  • Do not let the mum go dry in the container or in the landscape – be sure to water daily until established.
  • pinch old blooms from the plant to encourage new growth in the Autumn.

** Planting the mum in the landscapes and watering sufficiently so the roots can start to take is circuital to get the mum to come back next year.

I hope you will take the time and share with me your favorite color of mum in the garden or to use in containers around your home.  Are you finding new varieties at your local garden centers?  Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to growing with you!
