Mums the Word

DETROIT, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- a leading online flower delivery company, says it is the perfect time of year to begin thinking about fall flowers and decorating for the holidays.  Fall is definitely in the air with cool evenings and crisp mornings.  Soon the trees will be turning colors to reveal beautiful reds, oranges, yellows and purples to dazzle our eyes. 

Each year in the fall people trade in their bright summer flowers for warmly colored fall plants and flowers.  Year after of year, the most popular fall flower choice is the chrysanthemum, or mum for short.  Mums come in a variety of colors including: yellow, purple, violet, bronze, white, red, pink and orange.

It is possible to over-winter mums for use the next year.  You first need to take off all the faded blooms, but do not trim the stems.  Even if you don't plan to leave the mums where they are during the next season, don't move them once they've passed their peak.  Doing so exposes the roots to cold and this will kill the plant.  Instead, leave them where they are and place some straw or light mulch around them to help protect the roots during the cold winter months.

In the spring remove any dead foliage from the plants and move the straw (or other material) out of the way and give them a bit of fertilizer to help the roots grow.  Then enjoy them once again.

When you order from you will have the freshest and highest quality fall floral arrangements and plants to select from.  Enjoy all that fall has to offer.
