Mums can be tricky little plants, though they are stunning well into the cold weather they don’t particularly love the cold. We have a lot of people whom have come in and said the unfortunate five words, “My mums didn’t come back!”
So with a few tips your mums will come back year after year and be beautiful!
For the following spring :
Take away the dead growth from the previous season, also once your mum gets to be about 4-6 inches you should go through weekly and pinch back the shoots by about half the length. This will encourage the plant to bush out. By doing this from spring into the first weeks of July you will have a “fresh from the greenhouse” looking mum!
