My Chrysanthemums

The chrysanthemums along my front flower bed are putting on a nice show. The interesting thing about them is that they all come from a single pot of mums I bought at the Walmart about 5 years ago. I put them on the front porch over Halloween and Thanksgiving and they looked nice. When they were spent I pulled them out of the pot and tossed them onto the flower bed. The next spring they leafed out and looked healthy so I split the roots and spotted them along the bed. Now they have crowded out whatever else was there and are blooming up a storm. I never have to do anything to them. Such a deal!

We Yorkshire folk like a bargain and your mums have certainly been that. I can't say I'm a fan of pot mums but, outside they look good.

I think you say "green thumb" over here it's "green fingers" - but what's a digit between friends?

Hi. I love chrysanthemums. They are my favorite flowers of this period of year and I can't imagine autumn without them in the garden. The best thing is that they are absolutely unpretentious. Moreover, there are many color variations and when you combine them they look fabulous.

Good luck,
