Last fall I took a large pumpkin and cleaned it out, filled it with potting soil and put a mum plant in it. I used it as a decoration on my front porch. At the end of the season I took the mum/pumpkin and planted it in the ground. That mum came up great this year. I guess the pumpkin acted as good mulch for the mum.
This fall I'm going to get a few different sized mums and pumpkins and decorate my porch and yard.
