Hello All, so glad to be here. I have been searching the web looking for information on mums. I thought I was doing fine for a number of years, but then 4-5 years ago, my mums stopped coming. I dug out the area and put new soil in and planted them again…and again, and again. Finally, this year I transplanted portions of a HUGE mum (the only one that did survive) and those areas seem to be doing fine, they are now blooming. I was reading that the best time to plant mums is in the spring (not the fall). Now my question(s)…. #1 I don’t know that I have seen them for sale in the Spring and I’d hate to wait only to find I cannot get them. #2 I have so many that I purchased this year in pots and would love to save them – what is the best way to do that?
I love that the mums are nice green mound plants all summer, then flower late summer thru fall. I hope you have words of advice. Thanks so much! Oh, by the way, not sure of the zone, but I am located in Upstate NY (Auburn)
