These little plants are very nice to look at, in the light or shade. They especially look good when some are planted in a small pot. They have a good smell and lighten up the room. Best of all, the garden mums are very easy to maintain. Just give them one forth fo a cup of water each day. If you want them to have extra flowers, put them out in the sun for a long period of time (if they are adults, otherwise just give them a bit).
