Fall Mums – Part 1 – 10-9-15

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fall mums. I used to won a greenhouse business and would grow as many as 2,000 of these beauties for sale to my customers. As an experienced grower, I have developed a critical eye for the ones that will shape up the best as the blooming cycle begins and completes. These mums are in our west-facing window boxes and outside my wife’s hair salon in pots.

These photos were taken in late September. I will take more photos today and post them next Friday to update the progress of the blooms.

      Yes, we learned that in trying to stock for the season. There is also a wide range of times they will bloom and trying to get some from the beginning of the season throughout was a challenge at times.

    We have about 10 different varieties in our garden, Joe, and they always put on a magnificent display. Yours look lush and healthy, look forward to see then fully blown!
    Thanks for taking part in the Floral Friday Fotos meme.

      Come back Friday for the fully bloomed pictures. I have been feeding them regularly with Bloom Booster to make sure we get the full potential. Thanks for looking mine up and commenting.
