Drooping Osteospermums

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 17:24

It may be over watering Homelovinggirl.  Osteospermums like it hot and dry and have sharp drainage.  Apart from initial watering at planting time mine are hardly ever watered (in the ground)

Pelargonium

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
