Last year, I completely cleared and dug over a flowerbed, dug on loads of manure and then started planting. Everything grew really well except the geraniums ! Soil is sandy, partial shade. At previous properties I've not had a problem. I fed them with geranium feed that they got sent with, but thy just never really grew.
We had lots of ants in the flowerbed would this have affected them ?
The varieties I planted were Rosanne (although these ones have been flooded on quite a few occasions over the winter), Alba, Wargrave pink.
I was hoping to add in a load more geraniums this year into another bed but don't want to waste money, if something i dont know about as to why they never grew.
Any ideas, am totally stumped, I thought they grew anywhere and were easy ?
