Garden Mums to mulch or cut them back
This is my first year of planting fall mums, they were planted by Oct 4th and they are still alive and blooming in the middle of November! We have had temps in 20's and 30's too!!
I don't want to lose them but have no idea what to do here..please help!
I want to get the mulching or care done asao...as I'm not a WINTER person!
Do I cut them back? Do I put leaves on top of the big mound of flowers now? I live in windy area...can I use something besides leaves to protect? We make our own mulch and have been using that for a couple of years now in flower beds. Would that work? I could use wire cages or something that is more solid like an old plastic or metal tub. Good idea or bad?
Tried to do searches for this info but my computer and bandwidth are both S L O W in the country!!
Thanks for your help!
