I have garden mums which I had bought in pots. Can I save these by putting them inside until spring so they will rebloom again in the fall? What steps do I take to do this?

Mums actually make excellent potted plants. Once the temps in your area begin to drop, bring the plant indoors for overwintering. Keep the plant in a well-lit location, free of drafts, and care for it as you normally would. In the event that something goes awry, which it shouldn't, you can also take cuttings of the plant and root them to ensure a continual supply year after year.
