Enjoy Your Fall Mums Longer

Chrysanthemums are the perfect addition to Fall decorations. Their gorgeous colors pair perfectly with pumpkins and gourds, and they look great in the house, on the porch, or in your Tarter planter. Sadly, their blooms are often short lived.  We hope these tips will help you enjoy the mums in your fall displays even longer.

  • When shopping for your mums, make sure you choose one that has more buds than blooms.
  • Repot your mums when you get home, be sure to break up any compacted roots. 
  • Mums love the sun, and sun speeds up the blooming process. Placing your mums in partial shade will help slow this down.
  • Don’t let your mums go without water, and when you water be sure to water from the bottom and not on the blooms.
