leaves curling on pelargonium
Why do the leaves curl upward on the geraniums(pelargonium) in my flowering baskets? I water them daily, and they generally look healthy but the leaves on just the geraniums are curling up and turn yellow. The flowers often do not fill out completely before the centers wither and dry. Any suggestions how to keep them looking full and healthy?

Thanks for writing. Do you fertilize your geraniums? Too much of some nutrients (such as nitrogen) or too little of others (such as magnesium) can cause leaf curl. So either starting to feed them or cutting back on the plant food may help.
