Becky says: My orange mums need help

Posted: Updated:

 

So, I had mentioned before that my orange mums needed to grow to fill out the flower boxes.

Take a look, yep - they don't look so hot.  Do they need more sun?  I wonder since they are right on the house, if the sun is just not hitting them enough.

A co-worker mentioned Miracle Grow and I hadn't gotten around to it yet - but I did use fresh soil with "plant food for up to 6 months."  It's been 1.

I was so excited about these mums and thought they'd look great in the flower boxes.  Maybe they aren't meant to go in flower boxes.  

Or, even more likely, maybe I'm not meant to have anything green, or in this case orange.

Suggestions anyone?
