planting mums

Asked September 14, 2017, 11:10 AM EDT

Hello, Thank you for taking your time to submit your question to the OSUEMGV Ask an Expert group I have hardy fall mums and want to plant the outside but can't put them where... I have hardy fall mums and want to plant the outside but can't put them where I want them until spring. Can I plant them in a partially shaded area for the winter? Would they get settled enough to make it through the winter? Also, I planted mums last fall and they came up beautifully. They are very large and well rounded, as I did pinch back, but only once in the spring. The problem is, is that they are full of buds but aren't blooming. What's wrong? Thank you.
