Tips For Growing Healthy Mums!
In mid-summer, June or July, don't forget to cut off new flower buds. This is a fall blooming plant, so you don't want summer blooming.

It's best not to let your mums grow above 8 inches. Mums like to grow out, not tall.         

Don't forget to water your plants regularly. The warmer the weather the more thirsty your plants will be. Potted plants require more frequent watering.
Healthy plants are the result of good soil. A little fertilizer is recommended, plants need to eat too.

When plants are done flowering and winter is upon you, cut the plants all the way down. If your winters are harsh, cover with a few inches of mulch to protect plant from freezing.
