Hardy Chrysanthemum Care

Fall Garden (or Hardy) Mums have hit the garden centres and it’s tough to not bring one (or five!) home to brighten up a patio or entry way—they come in so many colours and the blooms last for weeks!

Most of these Mums are perennials in Zones 5-9 and, with care, can overwinter. You can either keep them in their pots in a protected area or plant them in the ground before the first frost in well drained soil with a heavy layer of mulch. Here’s an article with some good information to help these fall beauties keep coming back year after year.  Hardy chrysanthemum care.
