The Q&A Archives: Pruning Mums

Question: I was told to prune my mums twice a year; when and how much should I prune?

Answer: Cut growth back to 2 inches in June; then prune again in July, cutting back to 6 inches. This will encourage the plant to put out full, lush growth and lots of flower buds for the fall.
