Plant of the Month – September

September’s plant of the month is Chrysanthemums

This month’s Plant of the Month is the trusty Chrysanthemum – a staple of most gardens and yet highly undervalued. There would be few  flowers blooming in an October garden were it not for garden mums.
Their clusters of flower heads show over a long period and are available in many colours, including red, orange, yellow, white, and lavender. Garden mums need fertile soil and can take light shade, although they grow best in full sun. Ideal for adding a late season splash of colour to your beds, patios and gardens.
