Who's your MUMmy?

The fall is always welcome because of the long awaited blooming of the chrysanthemum--the mum! This is a plant which was a centerpiece in the autumn a few years ago. When it was finished blooming, I planted it in the ground and now enjoy its wonderful yellow blooms with a tint of orange.

The trick to a fall bloom is to pinch off flower buds during the early part of summer. Around the first week of August, stop pinching of the buds and let them set. During the month of September, the blooms will start to flouish.
