BRIGHTENING THE FALL LANDSCAPE WITH MUMS

BRIGHTENING THE FALL LANDSCAPE WITH MUMS

By late summer the home landscape often begins to look a bit tired. A quick way to perk up your fall landscape is to add potted mums in a variety of autumn colors, throughout your plant beds. Once the mums fade, the pots can be lifted and stored for use next year. These fun-looking orange pots are designed to look like pumpkins. I use dark green bamboo gardening stakes to anchor the pots to the ground. I poke the stakes through the holes in the bottom of each pot and through the center of the mum root ball to anchor the pots to the ground so that they don’t blow over during our gusty fall weather.
