Jeff Havaline Looks Over Mums At Ace Hardware

Just about everyone is picking up mums now that they are loaded with color. Most will find a place indoors or not far away, say on a porch or patio, for a couple of weeks before being transplanted to the garden. But what is required for successful transplanting chrysanthemums?

Conversations with a few customers at Ace Hardware helped create a short check list for successful transplanting:

  • Compost must be mixed into the garden before transplanting
  • Fertilize monthly only during spring and summer
  • Water daily but be sure to monitor moisture and do not allow soil to become soggy
  • Plant in a full-sunlight location
  • Space plants eighteen to thirty-six inches apart
  • For longer blooming season, mix colors and shades of mums

Jeff Havaline said he loves the blooms “but when they quit blooming they look like tumbleweeds.”
