A field day on Garden Mums will be held at Mike Wall's at 6pmCT, on Thursday, August 27, 2015, at 118 Preston Cape Road, in the Melson Ridge Community of South Adair County. Steve Berberich from the University of KY Department of Horticulture will be the guest speaker. Berberich will discuss how to start a garden mum enterprise, variety selection, potting, fertilization, pest control, and answer questions that potential growers may have. Please register by calling 270-384-2317 if you plan to attend.
Garden chrysanthemums grown for fall sales have been a successful crop for some Kentucky growers. A strong market exists for garden mums because garden centers desire an inexpensive flowering pot plant to accentuate fall landscape plant sales. Additionally the commercial landscape market has expanded and needs flowering plants for use in the Fall. Garden mums can be a simple crop to grow. If labor costs can be controlled, garden mums can be a money making summer crop.
