Geraniums need to be kept evenly moist. However, slight drying out between watering is much better than too much water. If geraniums are too dry or too wet, yellow leaves will appear in mass. It is very normal for geraniums to have yellow leaves from time to time, and they can be easily removed when they appear, but they shouldn't consistently have yellow leaves. So, check your watering habits. Geraniums do need fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season and it's important to remove flower stems as they fade. This will help promote new buds. Aside from the above, your geraniums should thrive. Let's hope adjusting your watering habits will help them come alive again.
