Mums are one of the most amazing plants to grow for fall beds and a powerful addition to a flower farmer's crop lineup for zones 3 through 9. After growing mums commercially for nearly a decade, we've put together a course that covers everything we've learned over the years.
The course is authored by Harmony Harvest Farm's Master Grower, Jessica Hall, and covers the entire lifecycle of starting, growing, and winterizing mums. A compilation of written guides and videos, this course explores topics like:
- Planting mum starts
- Growing out plants
- Managing pests and diseases
- Harvesting cut mums
- Winterizing mums
The course also includes bonus resources including an annual timeline that outlines what you'll need to do each month, a complete list of supplies you'll need for your crop, and Jessica's list of favorite mum varieties.
Jessica describes this course as "everything I wish someone told me when I started growing mums" and is packed with an incredible amount of information. We've tried to cover everything we can think of and provide you with the resources you need to have a successful mum growing year. After all, our goal is to help everyone, everywhere live a better life through flowers.
Please note that mums are traditionally grown in zones 3 - 9.

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.
