Bachman’s tips: fabulous fall garden Mums

Posted by Susan Bachman West, executive director of perishable operations

If your yard is looking a little rough after our sweltering summer, there’s a quick and easy way to infuse your landscape with fabulous fall color: garden mums!

Switch out any wilted, tired annuals with these bright blooms. Start a few new containers to decorate your doorstep, patio and porch for harvest season. Garden mums look fabulous in containers by themselves or mixed with other fall beauties, such as kale and celosia.

Mums come in a wide variety of colors, such as orange, red, yellow and bronze. Mix and match these different shades in your containers for colorful and brilliant blooms throughout the season. Garden mums are located at the outdoor Bachman’s displays at all 22 Lunds and Byerly's stores. Pick up your mums today for festive touch of the season.

We hope you enjoy all the brilliant colors of fall!

Care Instructions

Remember to keep watering mums like you would any plant in the summer. However, make sure you only water the soil; mums don’t like their foliage continually wet. While in bud, mums can be fertilized with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer. Once the buds show color, stop fertilizing and enjoy the prolific flowering. Hardier than other plants, mums can withstand most weather - even a light frost.
