Mums are a classic fall annual, coming in a variety of warm colours with a fresh, distinct smell that is the hallmark of autumn. And who doesn’t hold some nostalgia for the flower? Whether you found them in your mother’s garden, or potted around the city, mums hold fond memories of the fall for everyone.
Luckily, they are both beautiful and easy to care for. Plant them or place their pot in a sunny location, with at least 6 hours of sun a day. They enjoy a well-draining soil. If keeping them in a pot, a good potting soil is integral to their longevity. They enjoy water- give them a good soak about every other day, or when the soil seems dry.
