Can anyone tell me why my hanging basket of geraniums displays many blooms but only "itty-bitty" leaves...no larger than a dime.
A bit of history: Purchased the plant in full blooms with luxurious foliage last spring to hang on my front porch. Moved it to a shady spot under oak trees while I was out of town for a few days this summer.
While I was away...the deer nibbled on my geraniums... and ate ALL the flowers and leaves...leaving only the stems. I trimmed the bare stalks to about three inches. To my delight...the plant survived and started groowing again and blooming profusely. It's now covered with flowers but the leaves are almost non-existent. What happened?
