I haven't tried growing fancy Chrysanthemums, but they look way prettier than the millions of potted ones available at the stores and nurseries. Has anyone ordered from
https://www.kingsmums.com or grown them? I would love to leave them outside like my other mums too, but my zone maybe to cold?

I have not ordered from King's Mums. I did look at their catalog and noticed that there is an entry for them in the Green Pages, but no reviews. If you do order from them next year (they are not taking any orders until January) please post a review.

Have no experience with them to share with you. I am planning on replacing all my potted plants hanging on the railing with Mums, then bring them into the garage for the winter and plant them in the yard in spring. So I agree, if you do a order with them would appreciate a review.

I forgot to mention, the first week of July I took cuttings off my mums and planted 2 in the ground, they are iffy but still have green to them, and one I
put in a clay pot which really took off and has small buds all over it, so after fall it will over winter in the garage and get planted in the ground in spring. I read that
spring is the time to plant them in the ground around this climate so the roots get a good start before winter.....I know this has nothing to do with Kings Mums but
wanted to tell you about my cuttings I meant to mention in my earlier post. My plan for next spring is to line them all along the driveway embankment above
the driveway for fall color every year. Hurray!

Thank you, Linda. I have been checking the grocery store for fancier ones inside in pots without much luck. Maybe trying this method with the cut flowers would work.
