Hardy Geraniums - these were growing very nicely and seemed to have better growth than last year. The plants were bought as bare roots and are only just over a year old. However, I've just noticed that the leaf edgees have all curled up. I'm fairly sure this is not because of lack of water given the recent weather. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?? I thought these plants were meant to be indestructable!



if it has been very windy that may be the cause as they wilt a bit. or it could be the cold snap we have just had. can you post a photo muddy?

I found out what it was.. the neighbours have been pouring weedkiller on their side of the fence and it has killed everything along my side. I was so shocked. I came home today and all the plants, not just the geraniums were wilting and had dried out leaves. Newly planted fuschias, phlox, camellias, hibiscus, everything...dying. Thanks for trying to answer my question - but I don't think you could have guessed the answer this time.
