Where is the best place to plant my chrysanthemums?

You’ll experience best results if you plant your mums somewhere where they are fully exposed to the sun. Avoid planting them around trees or shrubs, as the smaller roots of the mums must then compete with the larger roots of the trees. Also be sure the area you choose provides wind protection from both cold, dry north winds and hot, dry summer winds.

TIP: Being exposed to light during the evening could inhibit your mums’ formation, so be sure and plant your mums several feet away from street lights or other night lights.
