Mum Absorbed Too Much Water

lakegirl79 added on August 21, 2016 | Answered

I have a big beautiful scarlet red-colored mum that comes up religiously every year. Well in the summer I wanted to do something new with the flower bed it's in, and I put down cloth and lava rocks! Big mistake! My mum absorbed too much water! Now it's not growing. It concerned me because by now it would be almost ready to bloom and hasn't grown at all. I removed the cloth and rock. Any way to save it? Please help! Thank u! - Natalie,WV
