The Q&A Archives: Mums Apear To Be Dead

Question: Never have I ever seen such a thing. Most everyone in this area has the question of "what happened to our mums this spring?" People that have had their mums grow every year be it new or old plants have not seen any life from most of their plants. Could it be because of the winter we had ?
