Hi, did you enrich the soil before planting it? If yes then that will be the reason for all the leafy growth. Once it has settled down it will be 'happier' and flower better.

I had that problem with Geranium 'Summer sky' this year, all looked fine but then the flowers were tiny or didn't open. I have re-potted it for now as it also became covered in mildew. The new growth is looking healthy after cutting it right down so I will replant soon. This is the first time I've had any bother with a Geranium :-)))

Mine did the same, Anne. I was very disappointed with it. I don't know Patricia's plant - I'll have to look it up!


It looks like a lovely one, Patricia - I hope it performs better next year.
