Do mums survive the winter or do you have to bring them in.

    Are they hardy mums?

    If it is in a pot, the roots will freeze. You will need to bring it in or plant it in the soil, or plant the whole pot for the winter and bring it back up once the night time temperatures come up. Out of the pot they are considered perennials for most all zones that I know of.

    They will come up every year. You don't need to dig them up. I spread leaves on my perrenials in the fall to cover them

    I don;t know where you live and how cold it gets. I've known people who dig them and then hang them upside down in a basement..but mum are so inexpensive in my area, that that sounds like a lot of work. Have you tried covering them?

  • Depends on what zone you live in. Where I live no, I leave in pots and ground and deadhead when necessary. Find out your zone here.

    I plant mine and winter them over that way.
