Garden Harvest Supply is proud to offer a quality line-up of perennial garden mums. Our hardy perennial mum plants grow true to their name and have been shown to exhibit reliable hardiness.
Hardiness in mums can be assured by proper care, which includes keeping the soil moist. Plant your hardy chrysanthemums in a sunny, well-drained location and incorporate 2 to 4 inches of peat moss, compost or well-rotted manure into the soil. Perennial mums respond well to frequent applications of water soluble fertilizers such as Neptune’s Harvest. Mums are very heavy feeders up to the time the buds are the size of small peas. Mums should not be fertilized after they show color in the fall; fall fertilizing will negatively affect winter hardiness.
Trim mums back to within 4-6 inches from the ground after Thanksgiving and apply a protective covering of loose material on the plants after the ground has frozen. Minnesota perennial mums should be divided every 3 years.
Our potted Perennial Mum plants for sale are guaranteed. Read about it on our Satisfaction page. Mums start shipping mid-May.
