The blooms may fall due to transplant shock or being moved fromt he greenhouse to outdoors without enough conditioning, cold nights, being past their prime, excessive wind, damage due to high water pressure at watering time or a heavy rain, overfertilizing, or underwatering or underwatering. Try to make sure the plant is protected from environmental extremes and keep the soil evenly moist but not sopping wet. Protect it on cold nights. Fertilize carefully according to the label instructions. Good luck with your plant.
