fall mums & garden relocations,
In preparation for fall, this year will be my first of the last 10 yrs we've owned our house, to actually get mums in August, rather than October.
I got 30 3" pots, 10 of each color, yellow, orange & maroon. We scattered them about the landscape with a fair amt. of space around each one for room for growth & considering the landscape for next year.
I'm in zone 7 (Long Island NY) How do I care for them as the weather turns colder? I thought I would cut them down & cover in mulch. How do you handle your mums? I'd rather they did not become like shrubs & remain mounded & neat.
