    I recently purchased 4 geraniums and put them in pots on my patio (I have done this in previous years.* When the buds come out, they die before they bloom.* What is the problem?* I've never had this happen before.* The plants look healthy and no bugs, so I am stumped.

    Hi Pechlove,

    Not really enough info here to be really helpful to you as you don't say what you see happening to the buds.* Are they turning brown?* Could you be overwatering?* How long ago did you purchase and plant them?* Here's a couple of sites you can look through.

    I purchased them 3 weeks ago and the blooms are turning brown before they bloom.

    I am not overwatering them.* Thanks for the reply.

    I forgot to ask if they were in bloom when you purchased them.* If so then it's probably not the greenhouse gas that I gave you a link to.* Did anything else seem to fit from the other link?
