Helpful Tips

  • How to Take Care of Your Mums:
  • Planting Your Mums:
    • For containers, pair mums with annual ornamental grasses like fountain grass or ornamental vegetables like kale, cabbage or peppers. Set them in pots 2-inches larger than the mum size listed on your plant (typically 6, 8, 10 or 12 inches), in sets of threes and fives to line stairs or walkways.
