Q & A Thursday

This week's question comes from Sandy R. in Virginia Beach.

She asks:

When is the best time to cut back mums?

Mums perennialize best when you don't cut them back to the ground in fall. Let the brown foliage alone until end of winter when it snaps off easily. Studies have found the dead foliage helps insulate the plant's crown (growing point).
