has anyone had good success with planting fall mums and have them come up for the next year? if so what's the secret? or maybe they are not to be a next yr plant?



I have had some that come up year on year then others fail during the winter. So I don't know what the secret is really. I suspect some are not fully hardy varieties so in the cold winters they die. They are also a fav food of slugs in the spring too.

I've had a fair amount of success. They don't seem to be long lived plants. They've come back for a couple years then Pfffffffttttt!! that's it. They are so inexpensive so I just buy new ones. Last year they were 3/$10.00 at the supermarket.

In New York, you will probably have success with only the hardiest varieties, Vjd. Unfortunately, those are generally not the ones available from the florist's shop.
