{ Keep your Mums Alive Easily }

It's that time of the year again where mums are popping up on every corner market stand, nursery & even the grocery stores!! If you've been a longtime TQS blog reader you'd know I'm not the greatest at keeping real plants alive..just being completely honest! This year while at our local nursery ~Steinkopf~ I talked to one of the young guys I always bug to help me when I need props & this year Mark urged me to ask him how to keep these mums going...SO GLAD I DID!! He gave me some super simple, but helpful tips & I had to share...


We picked up four mums this year! Simple, & at $8 a pop it was efficient too. We chose bold oranges & reds! 


1. Water every two days!

 Not too much, not too little.

2.  They LOVE sun! 

Keep them full of that sunny goodness.

3. Water Gently!

Broken stems will not come back on most mums as he stated. 


4. Cut off dead or broken stems!

Mum stems that are broke usually will not come back. 


I hope these super simple  tips help your fall mums flourish! I should mention these are the tips for outdoor mums in their original pots! Now, what's YOUR FAVORITE MUM COLOR??
