Garden mums (Dendranthema × grandiflora) are a traditional fall-flowering greenhouse or outdoor container crop. Yet profitable production of garden mums depends upon knowledge and control of production costs and proper cultural practices to achieve a quality product. This eight-page publication offers detailed guidelines for propagation and planting, irrigation and fertilization, plant growth and scheduling, diseases and pests, plus production costs. Includes valuable tables of growing media, scheduling, nutrients, and cultivars that thrive in the warm climate of the Southeast.
