Best answer

During unseasonably cool summers, mums can form early buds. As long as this early blooming is not prevented, themums will not flower again. Pinch the buds off and then fertilize and water regularly until they grow again.

  • Can mums bloom twice in a season?

  • While it’s uncommon to see mums blooming in summer, it’s possible. Mums typically grow in USDA plant hardiness zones 4 to 9, but this depends on the variety. It’s possible for chrysanthemums to bloom twice a season. But it’s uncommon, because it usually takes some serious human intervention to force blooms twice.

  • How to plant mums in the garden?

  • How to Plant Mums in the Garden If you wish to transplant your hardy mums from a container to your garden, be sure to do it before the first frost of the season. Make sure you plant them in a location that gets about six hours of sun per day and has well-draining soil. Do not fertilize mums in the fall as this can negatively affect blooming.

  • What are the characteristics of mums?

  • Characteristics. They require short days and long nights to bloom. The buds begin to form on the plant in mid- to late July. Different cultivars come into bloom at different times. Some mums are early bloomers, while others are mid-season bloomers or late-blooming varieties. Early-blooming mums usually flower during the month of September.

  • Do you cut back mums in the fall?

  • After the plant grows another four to five inches, repeat the process. Keep doing this until mid-July for bushy mums that bloom like crazy in the fall. If you do not pinch back your mums, they will bloom in mid-summer and will not bloom again in the fall.
