When's a good time to plant a rooted mum?

Several weeks ago, my dad bought some mums. Well a piece broke off and he suggested I 'root' it in some water. Well, I did and now it's got roots coming out. We have already had our first frost of the season, so when is a good time to plant the rooted mum?

  • Now. they are perennials, and will continue to establish roots thru winter. Just don't fertilize right now with anything that encourages foliage. GL

  • You'll have to probably wait until the spring to plant that if you've already had a frost.
