Ball Seed garden mum kickoff

It's spring, but it's actually time to think about Garden Mums for fall. To kickoff the season, Bill Calkins spoke with Ball Senior Manager of Technical Services, Dr. Will Healy, and Ball Mums Production and Business Manager, Cindy Drumgool, to share resources and production strategies to start your mum season strong.

Check out the video below. After a quick review of resources, including Ball Seed’s Garden Mums web pages, as well as several grower tools and a podcast miniseries, Will and Cindy dive into technical topics like preventing specific diseases and pest, proper nutrition strategies and tips for growing garden mums in cooler temperatures.

With more than 50 years’ experience producing rooted cuttings and finished mums, Will and Cindy bring tremendous knowledge to the table. Be sure to share this video and the resources below with your entire garden mum team. You can also view the slides from this video here.
