Caring for Chrysanthemums
Join Zannah Crowe and Mike O’Rourke from Your Midwest Garden for a thought-provoking discussion on all things “fall plants” with a focus on Chrysanthemums and caring for them. In this episode, they discuss a variety of topics including fall plants for pollinators, Wisconsin natives, pest controls, avoiding fall perennial maintenance, and the growing recognition of beneficial insects by gardeners.
If you take anything away from this episode, it’s to go visit your garden center weekly or bi-weekly. Keep in contact with your local experts to see what’s blooming, talk about your landscape and the wildlife within. So much energy is put into spring and summer, that fall is often disregarded. However, fall blooming plants have a special interest in extending your color and texture options deep into the season and benefiting the wildlife that depends upon them.
