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.
