    FALL GARDENING

    It sure doesn’t feel like Fall is just around the corner in Whatcom County. We have had a record breaking summer with the number of days over 80 degrees. However, the first day of fall is September 23, and if your flower baskets are fading you may be thinking of what to plant next. For the perfect late-season bloomer, you can’t go wrong with fall mums. Mums really are the divas of the autumn garden. The blooms last for weeks, and the sheer number of flowers per plant will convince anyone that this flower really likes to show off. Mums are perfect for mass plantings, because of the tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover. Garden mums make great container plants. To learn more about the blooms, please read:
    Gardening with mums


    Your front door creates a first impression for buyers and guests. Some seller’s stage and prep the interior of their homes but often neglect the front door. Mum’s aren’t as expensive as many perennials. Pots of colorful mums placed by the front door offers a quick splash of color. Mums are the pick for a fabulous fall!
