Geraniums Have Yellow Leaves And White Spots On Blossoms

Question From: MINNESOTA
Q: My geraniums have white spots on the blossoms and bottom leaves are turning yellow.

A: There maybe a couple of problems. Fertilizing with salt based chemical in the heat of the day can cause burning on the leaves.. Yellowing of leaves is often the result of overwatering. The surface of the soil should be allowed to dry in between watering. I would take photos of the damage and live cuttings sealed in a plastic baggie to an independent garden center or nursery of an accurate assessment and control. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
