I got this honkin' big mum a month or more ago at Costco. It was so cheery I couldn't resist.
But it was starting to fade a bit (forgetting to water it enough didn't help.) So I looked around to see where I might plant it.
Along the fence was a little bare, and there are drip outlets conveniently placed.
A few minutes with the post-hole digger (my favorite planting tool) was all it took.
That mum should be well-established by the time the cold weather comes and will be cheery again next fall!
