I've always watered my plants with well water, 2 weeks ago our pump went out so we tied our outside hydrant into our city water. Now, all of my Cannas are looking brown around the edges and my roses have almost putting on new blooms. Do you suppose it's the chemicals in the water and what can I do?

Yes I feel it might be

Yes I feel it might be because of the chemicals. Very harsh chemicals are used now-a-days for water purification.
