Pelargonium

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 12:20

Dont know where you are John but drying out and over watering would cause this.  Did you simply take it outdoors from being inside without hardening off?

i grow several pelargoniums and yellow leaves occur anyway now and then.  I just pick them off.  Pelargoniums do not like dead or dying leaves around them.  More because of neglect, my plants do dry out a little too much at times but a good watering resuscitates them...this does create a few yellow leaves too

i grow pelargoniums outside too...they generally do better outside in the summer.....with some kept there over winter.

When you say "good pruning".....you make it sound like a good beating Tracey .....and they haven't "come back yet" what exactly do you mean ?  

I prune very hard in spring without problems.  Do your plants have any shoots at all?

In a nutshell the reason why these "bargain" packs should be ignored

Just received a plant today that I intend to divide into at least 6 units.  £7 including delivery!  Next year they will each be the equal to the plant received today.

Often I found original plants struggled....e.g. Choisya sundance...but the resultant plants from cuttings thrived.  I decided it was because my conditions were different and plants resisted new sitution.  Cuttings raised plants were accustomed to my conditions from the start
