Chrysanthemums (or “mums”) are beautiful flowers which come in a wide variety of bloom types and colors. Although known as “The Queen of Fall Flowers,” the process of growing exhibition-quality mums begins in the spring with the planting of rooted cuttings and continues through the summer and fall with lots of TLC.
The program will conclude with a tour of Clark Botanic Garden conducted by Horticulturist Bonnie Klein.
Participants in this program who care to join the Long Island Chrysanthemum Society will have the opportunity to be mentored by an experienced mum grower and have access to a few “starter” plants. For further information, go to the society’s web site, www.longislandmums.org.
