Mums are perhaps the most popular potted flower. Given the incredible variety of colors and styles of mums available, you can easily pick out those that appeal to you and match with the rest of your landscape – or interior décor. If you are just getting started in the world of growing your own flowers, you may be a little nervous about this task. Rest assured, however, that mums are pretty easy to manage, and you’ll be able to enjoy them for a long time by just providing basic care.
With this article, we want to point you towards a few key tips that will help your mums thrive in their pots. If you have any other landscaping needs on your Jackson, WY area property, please reach out to TLC for assistance. With design, installation, and maintenance services, we have been able to serve countless area residents and businesses in recent years. We hope to hear from you soon!
Let’s dive right into the top keys for keeping your mums in great condition while they live in your pots.
If you nail the three points above – finding plenty of sun, pulling away dead growth, and offering the right amount of water – your mums will be in a great position to thrive. Of course, like any skill, you’ll get better at this with practice, so don’t worry if your first efforts fall a little short of expectations.
After your mums have enjoyed a blossoming life inside their pots, you might choose to transplant them out into your garden. Moving mums out of pots and into the ground is a relatively easy task, especially if they are in good health when you do the transplanting. Dig a hole for each plant that offers plenty of room for the roots, and give it ample water at the start. You may also want to use a balanced fertilizer to make sure the plant has enough nutrients available to settle into its new home. As was the case when the plants were in their pots, you need to pick a place in your garden that will offer plenty of sunlight and you don’t want to select a spot where water is going to pool and overwhelm the mums with moisture.
Most likely, your potted mums are only one part of a larger vision for the beauty of your property in the Jackson area.
