Leaves Turning Brown on Mums


Betty45 added on September 29, 2012 | Answered

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. While you could flood the area with water and tamp down around the plants to help collapse any air pockets, right now, you need to determine if the plant is still alive. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
