Red Geranium Leabes - Knowledgebase Question

Question by michelle_ebe

Every year the leaves on my geraniums turn red. Why is this happening. I just bought them and potted them, so I don't think that they need re-potting. It's been raining a lot... Could they possibly be too wet?

There are several possible reasons why this could happen, ranging from too cold to too wet to too acidic a soil to needing more balanced nutrients. You might try using a foliar feed with micronutrients and/or some compost and see if that helps. You might also try a different brand of top quality potting mix.
