I purchased mums and kept them in a pot but now I want them in the ground so they will bloom in the spring. When is the best time to plant them?

Mums do not bloom well in the spring. They get maybe 1-2 flowers per plant, if that. You can, however, plant them in the spring and pinch them back hard in late spring/early summer and they will bloom wonderfully in the fall.

They can be treated like high light houseplants until spring. Keep the soil moist and put them in as bright a light as you can find.
