The fall mums have had thier day. It seems a shame to toss in the recycle bin. Can I dig them into the garden? Will they grow and bloom again next season?

John,
If they are not too dried out, they sure can be transplanted to a bed. Most will be hardy enough to make it through the winter. In the spring and early summer I hit mine with the weed eater when they start getting tall. Then until about the 4th or middle of July I hand clip them back. This will make them much bushier and the late summer and fall bloom will be much more full.
