KENT Seeds of Summer 2020: Chrysanthemum Morifolium

by Jennifer Anderson |  | 2 comments

As part of our journey to restoring mother earth, each season we're featuring a super natural plant or flower and including a packet of seeds with every order*.

 

For summer 2020, our seeds are the powerful Chrysanthemum Morifolium, also known as the humble mum. We chose the mum as our first seed for its powerful air purifying and filtering properties. The mum is 1 of 10 plants included in NASA's Clean Air Study as a bloom that helps to detoxify your home (and our air) from toxins including ammonia and benzene, which is often found in plastics, detergents, and glue. And while we're all spending more time at home, we love Chrysanthemums for their beauty as much as their ability to clean the air we breathe in.

 

Along with the Chrysanthemums, we popped in a few aztec marigold seeds for an extra pop of color.

 

How to Grow Your Chrysanthemums

Plant these seeds indoors 2 months before taking them outdoors. Cover the seeds lightly with 1/8 inch of seed and 2-4" apart in compost or rich gardening soil. Water thoroughly. Wait until you see significant buds before moving outdoors. 

care tip: This plant loves sunlight, so place it in a spot near a sunbathed window.

Chrysanthemum Morifolium

Sow marigold seeds with or separate from the mums, can start in the home or directly in the ground and cover with a thin layer of soil (about 1/8 inch deep). Water thoroughly. Thin to 8 inches apart after seedlings have sprouted.
