It's the Mum Garden Box, with a surprise twist! As we work through this year's bare-root mum crop, a few of them lost their labels! Instead of tossing them into the compost, we thought we'd share these mystery plants with our fellow mum-lovers.
Each box includes five mixed variety, bare-root heirloom mum plants that can be planted in the spring. Our coveted mum crop is made up of some of the most sought-after heirloom varieties and will add an amazing pop of color and texture to your fall flower landscape.
These bare-root mums are semi-dormant and will need to be potted within a few days of arrival.
About the Mums
Mums can return year after year if planted in the right zone and at the right time which is in early spring, or in the fall at least six weeks before a killing frost. To find your growing zone, check out the USDA’s Plant Hardiness Zone Map.
- Growing Zones: 3 to 9
- Bloom Time: September to frost
- Where to plant: Full-sun areas
- Size: 1’ to 3’ tall and 1’ to 2’ wide
The Mum Garden Surprise Box is a mixed collection of mystery mum plants. This means they will not be labeled! Don't worry, we've created our Mum Directory so you can find out what variety you've received when they start blooming in the fall. Be sure to bookmark the page so you can find it next year! Here's the link.

Below is a snapshot of our shipping policies. Find a complete overview of our shipping policies on our Shipping and Delivery page at https://www.hhfshop.com/pages/shipping-and-delivery.
At Harmony Harvest Farm, we are committed to delivering flowers with ultimate freshness, exactly when you need them. Flowers are harvested within hours of being packaged and are shipped FedEx Priority Overnight, or FedEx 1-Day Ground for specific zip codes to arrive on your selected delivery date. If you're eligible for FedEx 1-Day Ground, you'll see the Ground and Home Delivery service appear at checkout. You can also see if you're eligible for 1-Day Ground shipping using the shipping calculator on the cart page.
To prepare for shipping, each bunch is dressed with an enclosed water source and gently rolled in paper for extra protection. Flower deliveries do not require a signature, and should not be left outside, or unprocessed for extended periods of time. Please be sure to have someone available to receive the flowers or a climate controlled area where your delivery can be left. Once flowers are received, they should be removed from the box, placed in water, and kept in a cool place until it’s time to design. Fresh flowers are not available for international shipment. The only wedding flowers available for shipment are bulk flowers. All other wedding flowers are available for on-farm pickup ONLY.
DRIED FLOWER SHIPPING
Dried flowers are shipped within two business days via FedEx Ground. Dried flowers are not shipped on Saturday or Sunday. Dried flowers are not available for international shipment.
FLOWER FROG SHIPPING
The flower frogs are shipped within 3-5 business days of when you place your order. We will notify you immediately if for any reason your product has gone out of stock or is still in production and might be delayed. Flower frogs are shipped via FedEx for both domestic international shipments.
Our merch is made-to-order. Due to you-know-what (we're tired of saying it), production times are longer than normal and are averaging 4-5 days, but could be as long as 15 days. We could switch vendors, but then we wouldn't be supporting US print shops and that's not really our style. This lead time is temporary and our printers are working hard to shorten them. After production, items will take 5-7 days to arrive to you within the US. International transit times vary and can be estimated at checkout.
