The Q&A Archives: Mums

Question: I just bought 3 huge beautiful mums and have planted each in their own container in full sun. One of the plants the leaves are starting to yellow and the other is beginning to droop. Any suggestions?

Answer: It sounds as though your plants are showing some transplant stress. It usually subsides in a week or so, once the roots become established. It might help speed the adjustment process along if you place the plants in filtered sunlight until they perk up. Then you can gradually move them back into a full sun position.

Enjoy your new plants!
