Mums the Word!

mums

Have no fear, summer is still here! However, we’ve been in Fall planting mode and our mums are starting to fill out nicely!

All of our mum pots are watered every day using an irrigation system on our front mat. We keep them outside so that they can soak up all the beautiful sunshine this summer has given us, and even get a little extra water when it rains.

Our mum crop will be ready to for purchase tentatively the last week in August! Check back for more updates on the official date! The colors we will have available will be:

  • Bronze
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Lavender
  • White
  • Pink

Another reason we keep them outside is so that we can get this greenhouse ready for poinsettias! I know it’s hard to believe but there’s only 21 weeks until we’re in the middle of the holidays! We have been working very hard in this heat to get the greenhouse completely clean for these guys to have room to be planted and grow. It’s hard to imagine how full this place was only a few months ago!
