When To Cut Back Mums?

Answer

Mums are a perennial type of plant, meaning that it will continuously bloom if taken care of properly. However, after the first frost, it's best to cut back the mums so they can come back stronger in the spring. In the spring time, clip the smaller buds before they bloom to allow the center flowers to grow even bigger. People like to cut back their mums about three or four times before June as the mums like to be kept trimmed back.
