They come in an array of colors, from warm pink hues to hardy yellow and zesty oranges.Mums mixed in the garden with pumpkins and gourds are my sign Fall has arrived. Years ago I started to grow my fall mums in Miracle Gro potting mix. The difference was amazing. The Mums seemed to triple in size. They also seemed to lasts a lot longer than they did before I started using potting mix.
