Love-Hate Relationship with Geraniums
Geraniums just don't seem to like me. For years I've bought them ... various types ... ivy and 'regular' kinds. They just don't flourish for me. It's hot here in south/central Louisiana. I have one ivy in a hanging basket, and two others in pots. They seem to just barely bloom and don't grow much. Both get several hours of sun a day, and I use Osmocote to fertilize.
The one my neighbor has in her flowerbed (she ignores it, doesn't pick off old blooms/dead leaves), just blooms and blooms. What am I doing wrong? I was told years ago that they like a lot of soil. What else can I do?
