Question From: Silver Spring, Maryland, United States
Q: Goodmorning. Geraniums- regular size pot, how much is too much watering. They seem to be happier when the top is dryer. I water them, they end up droppoing. some of the lower stems turn yellow. Were in Saskatchewan, I brought the plants in over the winter here.
I can't give you a watering formula. True geraniums do not like too much water. In winter they need much less as they are not growing. Allow them dry down, not out, before watering. Then water and allow the plants to drain. When you begin to see new growth cut them back hard and increase water load. Stick finger in the soil to first knuckle, when dry water.
