Geranium Stems Have Started Curling And Bending Over At Head

Question From: J. Weil - San Francisco, California, United States
Q: My geraniums are generally healthy but the flower stems have started curling and bending over just at the head....they still bloom but not straight up...They stay outside all year in San Francisco and get lots of sun. It does get cold some nights...Thanks

A: My guess is they dry down too much and then are watered with water containing a high concentrate of chlorine. Let tap water sit for 4 hours or more before watering. Do not use treated water from a swimming pool. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
