Mums this year

Has anyone noticed that the mums being offered this year aren't bloomed yet?
My dd's school was selling them a few weeks ago and i noticed none of the flowers were bloomed...just tons of buds.
I thought it was odd so I didn't purchase them there.
We were just out east at the place we always buy them from and again....no flowers. All tight buds.
I didn't buy them because quite frankly they look like shit and with my black thumb I fear they will never bloom. I mean it's already October, shouldn't they be blooming by now?
Has anyone else noticed this?

They are so ugly when they aren't bloomed, and I feel like mine die before they even bloom. I spent $20 on a freaking plant with half mums in it for my DD's fundraiser, the mums part still hasn't bloomed.

both the ones we have planted and the ones we bought in pots have bloomed already.
The planted ones bloomed a little later, but they're out.
The potted ones seemed to bloom early i thought!

Mine died so quickly last year. I would rather have the tight buds. I find they last longer since they haven't bloomed yet.

We just got ours yesterday from a farm by our house. They had all nicely bloomed ones, but any chain stores all seem to have ones that havent bloomed yet.

Re: Mums this year

Yes! I just spent $80 through my DD soccer fundraiser for mums, and I’ve had them for over 2 weeks and they are still closed! Normally I’d be angry, but realistically I’ll kill them soon anyway Chat Icon

I bought closed buds be a use I want them to bloom when I plant them.
Otherwise, the flowers are gone so quickly and I feel like I've wasted money.
The ones I planted last year bloomed in June and now are blooming again.

Re: Mums this year

Maybe it's just the ones I have seen.

But I found it odd that all 3 places I saw them- DD's school sale, the farm out east, and Stop and Shop were all so tightly closed.
Very strange.

Same here! I just found some nice fresh ones in Home Depot that are not bloomed. I want them to last until Thanksgiving not just Halloween!

I find that even when I buy them bloomed they last until Thanksgiving and past it....uo until the first real solid frost

OK what do you do with your mums... do you keep them potted or do you plant them?

I used to keep them potted, but last year i had some spaces in the front where we ripped bushes out and never replaced them so I wanted to fill that in... so I planted them.

How long do they last before they die and you rip them out?

Last year I got them (Fully bloomed) in late Sept and they lasted until after Thanksgiving. They die when it starts to drop below freezing too many nights in a row I find.
They do like it cold- they generally last for me until the first real frost.

Yep that was what I kept finding. I wasn't going to buy them all opened already I want them to last really long. I ended up getting them all closed at costco 2 weeks ago and they opened up last week they are gorgeous now.
