FALL MUMS - Long-lasting in arrangements

Using FALL GARDEN MUMS in arrangements makes for a long-lasting display.  This week's arrangement uses low growing, self supporting cushion garden mum SPICY CHERYL, which blooms in early October. Mums can easily last 2 weeks or more in your arrangements. Cut when some flowers are still in tight buds, with others a little more developed, and your arrangement can last upwards of three weeks. Remove all foliage below the water line, or, as in the case of this arrangement using wet oasis, remove all foliage inserted in foam.  Use a floral preservative to aid their longevity.  Keep out of direct sunlight, and change water, if able to do so, every other day.
