Leaves Turning Brown on Mums
My mums have leaves that are turning brown. I would like to know the possible causes and the cure. Some of the stems are dying. What type of soil should they be planted in? Is there a product that will cure these conditions? If so, what are they?

If it's newly planted, then it may be suffering from shock or there could have be air pockets restricting roots from taking in water.
