First consideration is whether you have garden mums, or florist mums. The florist mums have less chance of making it, but there's no reason you can't try. With either type, you'll probably want to cut them back and winter in a cool place - usually there's not enough light to keep them flowering, and besides that they'll probably do better with a winter's sleep.
