& Maintenance Tips

For best growth, plant your fall mums in fertile well drained soil.  Plant at least 6 weeks before a heavy frost to establish itself, therefore increasing its chances of returning the next year!  These lustrous lovelies will grow 18-24”  tall, full and bushy, so they should be planted 18-24” apart.  Color from late Summer through the Fall.  Having good circulation between the plants will help reduce the chance of powdery mildew on your plants.
