Hanging Geranium Leaves Are Brown On Edges

Question From: P. Jones - Clermont, Florida, United States
Q: How do I fix my hanging geranium that the leaves are brown on the edges?

A: Browning on the edges is usually caused by too much water or lack of water. The soil should be kept moderately moist. If you have had the plant for a long time it may be pot bound and need to be transferred into a larger pot. If the soil dries out and shrinks away from the sides of the pot the water will run down the side of the pot and fail to moisten the soil in the middle. After watering stick you finger in the soil do a depth of 2 inches - the first joint of your pointer finger to see if the soil is wet. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
