If you have had trouble over-wintering fall mums, try this method:
HOW TO GROW AND CARE FOR FALL MUMS
A very popular plant for late season color is fall mums, also called "Garden mums" or "Hardy mums". Fall mums were once known as Chrysanthemums, but taxonomists have recently changed their botanical name to Dendranthema x grandiflora. Fall mums are available in a wide selection of colors, flower types, shapes and sizes. They are a low maintenance, easy to grow plant that can be kept in containers or grown in beds. They are drought resistant and generally free of insect and disease pests.
Newly planted fall mums will not require any fertilizer this season. During the next growing season begin feeding your mums as new growth emerges with Schultz fertilizer. Feed your plants at least monthly until August.
REGROWING…the following Spring
ORNAMENTAL CABBAGE AND KALE

These hardy plants will become bright purple, white and green and will shine through even when the snow starts to fly !

FALL IS A GREAT TIME TO DECORATE YOUR HOME. THERE ARE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES WITH AL OF THE GREAT CHOICES YOU WILL FIND HERE AT JIM JENKINS LAWN & GARDEN CENTER !
FALL IS FOR PLANTING !
Fall is the best time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials. The cooler temperatures mean less watering and less stress on the plants. The plants will have plenty of time to grow a great root system before the ground freezes which means a stronger, healthier plant next year. You can continue planting through mid-October. Here at Jim Jenkins Lawn & Garden Center we restock fresh, new stock even now so that you have the same great choices as in Spring. Fall is also the best time to take advantage of GREAT Sales and Discounts, so plan next years' landscape now and SAVE !
Environmental Benefits of Fall Planting
By planting trees and shrubs, we return to a more natural, less artificial environment. The natural cycles of plant growth, reproduction and decomposition are again present, both above and below the ground.
One of the best ways to increase your home's resale value is by adding trees and shrubs to your landscape. Adding trees and shrubs can increase your home's value by 10-15% ! September, October and November are the best months to plant trees and shrubs. Late season planting reduces stress on the plants and gives them a chance to establish a strong root system. Fall is more forgiving than dry summer months by offering cooler temperatures and less intense sunlight. Water requirements diminish during the Fall months. So add value and beauty to your home AND help improve the environment, PLANT TREES AND SHRUBS.
Jim Jenkins Lawn & Garden Center has a great selection of Ornamental and Shade Trees available for the Fall planting season. Along with the dependable favorites like Crimson King Maples, Red Sunset Maples, Eastern Redbuds, Forest Pansy Redbuds, Dogwoods, Magnolias, Cherries and Pears we have many unusual and hard to find varieties you cannot find anywhere else !
