Planting And Growing Fall Chrysanthemums


Fall is here, and that means it’s time to start thinking about the colors, smells, and tastes of autumn. And what could be more delightful than having a beautiful display of mums in your yard or on your deck?

I’ve found that there are plenty of fall chrysanthemums that will thrive in my area (the Midwest) throughout the year. With just a little effort, you can have a lovely fall display right in your backyard!

You can start a beautiful fall chrysanthemum garden in your yard or pots on your deck, balcony, or patio

You can start a beautiful fall chrysanthemum garden in your yard or put pots on your deck, balcony, or patio. Chrysanthemums are easy to grow and maintain, and they’re available at most garden centers throughout the year.

You may choose to plant them in the ground or in pots. If you’re planting them directly into your soil, prepare it before transplanting by loosening the top six inches of soil with a shovel

so that it’s easier for roots to spread out as they grow; then dig down about an inch below that first level of soil until you hit gravel (or other hard material).

If you plan on planting them indoors, space them 12 inches apart each way—this allows room for their branches while still being close enough together so they don’t compete with each other when it comes time for blooming!

They also do well when planted outside once temperatures begin warming up again; just make sure there isn’t too much shade around where they’ll be located before putting any seeds down.

It’s important to start with the right plant

It’s important to start with the right plant. There are many different varieties of fall chrysanthemums and they all have their own unique characteristics, so you need to be careful when selecting your seeds.

  • Choose a variety suited for your climate: Chrysanthemum plants need at least six hours of sunlight each day, so if you live in an area where there isn’t enough light for them to survive long periods without water or fertilizer (elevation above 5500 feet), choose another type instead!
  • Choose one that blooms at the time of year you want it: Fall chrysanthemums bloom from mid-summer until early winter—and if they aren’t cold-hardy enough for those months yet, then it will be difficult (and expensive) to grow them indoors during their non-blooming seasons.*

Once you choose your favorite fall chrysanthemums, follow these steps to get them planted properly

Choose a sunny spot with good drainage and soil that is free of weeds or grass clippings. Chrysanthemums like full sun but will also tolerate part shade conditions if there is no direct sunlight in the morning hours.

Plant in late summer or early fall so that they can establish themselves before winter arrives, which will help them survive through harsh winters and cool spring temperatures when it’s time for a big bloom again next year!

You’ll want to dig holes at least twice as wide as the root ball (or larger), then mix in some compost, fertilizer, and water before planting each mum into its own hole carefully centered on top of some composted soil

this helps keep roots straight while establishing stability during transplanting process later on down the road! Just make sure not too much water remains inside the container because this could drown surrounding plants instead.”

You’ll want to take some time to water your mums and keep them growing properly, too. Here are the steps to care for your fall chrysanthemums throughout the season

To keep your chrysanthemum plants thriving and growing, you’ll want to take some time to water them regularly. This can be done by hand or by using a hose attachment on your sprinkler system. In most cases.

it’s best to leave the plant in its container until after the first frost date (which is usually sometime in October). It’s best not to let them sit out in direct sunlight though; they’ll dry out too quickly if they aren’t watered regularly throughout the day.

Once planted outdoors, chrysanthemums grow best when kept moist and well-fertilized through late spring into early summer before turning their attention toward flowering during the late summer/early fall months (around July). During this period of growth, you should check for pests or diseases such as aphids that may cause damage if left untreated; these pests can be easily controlled with insecticidal soap or horticultural oil spray treatments applied directly onto leaves using a small squeeze bottle nozzle attachment available at hardware stores such as Home Depot, where gardening tools are sold alongside other household goods like kitchen appliances, etcetera…

To get the best results, you’ll want to start with a plant that has good root strength. In this case, we’re talking about fall chrysanthemums. They’re very easy to grow and care for: they require little more than regular watering and fertilization every few weeks.

Chrysanthemums have been grown in America since colonial days as ornamental plants; they were popularized by Thomas Jefferson as “American Beauty.” The species used most frequently today is ‘Paphiopedilum’ (or simply “champagne”), which features large yellow blooms with red centers—and makes an excellent choice for beginners because it grows well indoors or outside during warmer weather


If you’re ready for your fall display of chrysanthemums to begin, then make sure to follow these steps. Most importantly, make sure that you have chosen the right plant for your garden. Once that’s done, mow your lawn and rake up any leaves from underneath where you will be planting the flowers so they don’t get weighed down by too much material at once.

Then add some fertilizer to your soil (if needed), fill a pot with potting mix, and add water until it’s just below ground level in each container. You’ll want to plant an inch per week until the root ball is completely covered with soil (roughly two weeks after planting). Be sure not to overwater either, because this could cause root rot issues later on down the road. “
