Potted fall mums - will blooms last for the wedding?
I need some advice. I'm getting married outdoors in mid-September (coming up fast!) and am going to use potted fall mums to decorate the yard. I was originally planning to buy the plants just before the wedding, but there is a one day sale this weekend (6" pots for $1.99 each).
If the plants are in bloom this weekend, how long will the blooms last? I have a feeling that it is wishful thinking on my part to hope they'd last long enough, as they'd have to last 6 weeks to make it to the wedding.
Any tips on ways to make the plants bloom for as long as possible?
