I would like to know after you plant the mums plant do you have to cut back or leave be for the next year?

Once the mum has finished blooming, many gardeners will trim the tops back to about 4 to 6 inches. This may help reduce the chance of the crown rotting during damp spells. In the spring, trim it back again to about a half an inch so the new shoots can grow unimpeded.
