Find beauty in the Fall with a floral pumpkin centerpiece using Miracle-Gro!
This post brought to you by Scotts Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Guys I have to let you in on a bit of a secret, Miracle-Gro isn't just for spring and summer months. Fall is also a great time to start a beautiful gardening project. According to the Scott Fall gardening site if you live in the Northeast, like me, you can add fun mums to your garden during this time of year. You can add a variety of color to your garden with some vibrant mums. This can be done in garden beds or containers.
I would use those mums next fall to re-create this floral pumpkin centerpiece that I found on Pinterest. I chose this project because I love Halloween. You can put this out for both Halloween and Thanksgiving though if you choose. To make the above centerpiece, cut your mums at the top of their stem and then hot glue each one of the blossoms to a pumpkin (yes, those are pumpkins in disguise!). It's then fun to accesorize the piece by surrounding it with gourds.
I would most likely grow my mums using pots. So the Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix would be the perfect product for me. This potting mix has the ability to help plants grow twice as big in ordinary potting soil and to absorb 33% more water than usual. It also feeds plants for up to 6 months with Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food. To use this potting mix simply select a pot with a drain hole, fill the pot about 1/3 full, loosen the root ball of the plant, add the mix and press lightly and then water and let drain. Sounds pretty simple to me.
What a fun way to Find beauty in the Fall .
