The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Container-grown Mums

Question: What is the best way to transplant container grown mums ?

Answer: If your soil is well-cultivated, simply dig a whole the size of the container, slip the mum plant out of the container, and put the plant into the hole. If the roots are heavily matted, it's a good idea to make shallow slashes downward with a sharp knife. If the mum has finished blooming, trim off old flower heads and week foliage. Water well. With most pot varieties of mums, you'll usually get a second flush of blooms during their nromal season, fall.
