Pelargonium

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 19:41

One issue re feedimg is to ring the changes now and then. seaweed spray seems esp good on pelargoniums. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Exactly Mr Edd.  Just a few pellets can be very effective.  Too many and the slugs invite their mates around for a party

Shelley, you will probably meed to spray 3 times during the summer.  Look for other regrowth and spray again.

Pruning Conifer Hedge

now is a good time Meomye.  Ideally, prune a dry hedge (obviously) but just before rain.

Dave. I understand that.  Pruning done correctly tramsforms roses and many other plants.

Glorious day again. esp in the garden.  Got in some dwarf kniphofias today.  Never grown them before so it will be interesting to see how they develop. 

Drooping Osteospermums

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?
