My #stemcuttings of #chrysanthemums are coming along Fabulously! There are smaller pieces I took off of each that are showing signs of blooming too. ROOTING: Place them into soil, mulch around them and keep soil moist. #fallblooms #autumnflowers #rooting #collage #fallcollage

Use spicy spices like cayenne pepper black pepper pepper flakes and mix up sprinkle around the beds and rake up any nuts etc that might have fallen and put where you are ok with them being like under the tree

I just put them in the #ground this morning so they'll take #root before the #cold sets in. My dark purple ones are blooming like crazy....the pink ones are starting to open and the pale smokey purple were already blooming when I got them...blooms are starting to die on it....forgot to put that one in the ground...lol... But my new bright purple one is in full bloom! Covered in #blooms!!

This #chrysanthemum #cutting was #gifted to me by @cyndi It's coming along well,but his partner didn't.😢 Cyndi,the Angel Azalea didn't make it and so far 1 of the hydrangea have as well..I think I'm loosing my Green Thumb or is it because it's broke right now😢.? Will it get better after surgery...lmbo❣️

Do you use same medium of wood chips for mulching. I would reduce mulch as that will constrain sunlight to reach the plant. Some plant bulbs needs to be kept a bit moist and Mums are one of them. Try dried leaves mulch if you still want to do. See how much shade is generated by nearby plants #advice

Dont worry hun cuttings are a hit and miss and Really its best to get them going in a pot so you can make sure they work or not then transplant dirt and plant to its permanent space. I have a few extras I did to root just in case this happened. Give me time and I'll send another but root in small/med pot first till stronger..and some plants will look dead and come back thats happened to me a few times and fingers crossed it will work again.
