Fall Plant and Flower Ideas

How to Plant Mums and Their Cool Friends:
  • Cool-season plants are available for sun or shade; choose the best plants for each spot in your outdoor space.
  • Ease your plants out of their pots and gently loosen roots.
  • Dig a hole wider than, but only as tall as, the plant’s container. Use the empty pot as a guide. 
  • Put plants in holes but don’t plant too deep. The top of the plant should be level with soil. 
  • Fill with soil and tamp down gently to eliminate air pockets. 
  • Water thoroughly. 
  • Add mulch about 2 to 3 inches deep, keeping it away from the base of the plant. 
  • Feed weekly to produce the most flowers.

TIP: Remove spent blossoms to encourage even more flowers.
