Do you remember my potted mums from last fall?
These were the mums that got caught out by an early frost, and lost their blooms before giving me much of a show.
Well, I brought the potted plants indoors for the winter. I kept them watered, and in a sunny window. In spring, I pruned them, and set them back out on the deck.
All are now beginning to bloom again!
I have 2 large and 1 small potted mum. Looking good and I'm hopeful for lots of blooms. And this year, I'll try to pull them up against the house before any early frosts, to extend their bloom time.
So cool. No money spent this fall for potted mums!
(BTW, these types of mums don't over-winter in pots in my area very well. They can be planted in the ground and mulched over, to use as a tender perennial. Our winters are a bit too cold for mums to survive in a pot, outdoors.)
