   Labor Day Kicks Off Mum Season

These days, mum’s the word as thousands of chrysanthemums in shades of red, yellow, purple and orange appear at stores and nurseries.

The colorful flowers give northeast Ohio residents an opportunity to enjoy an array of autumn colors in their gardens and landscaping, said Bob Mramor, owner of Kelly’s Gardens and Landscapes, 4220 Route 20 in Saybrook Township.

“The colors are just starting to show,” he said. 

The arrival of fall mums in stores after Labor Day is one of the best horticultural events of the year, he said. Gardeners get a beautiful flower that blooms for about six weeks. Then, if you plant it in a protective spot close to the house before it gets cold outside, water it and mulch it, it will come up again next September and bloom again, he said.
