hey, how is everybody doing??
i want to ask on some advice for my gerberas. i have had them for more than a year now, and i seldomly get one flower out of them. i have made sure that they drain well, so thats not the problem. they get enough water, and are in full sunlight. their leaves are very few, and they are starting to die off. i am hoping to save some, but i don't know how! does anybody maybe have any advice for me?? i would appreciate it so much!
thank you and take care,

I'd be interested in the reply. Mine are still here from last year but similarly, are not doing much at all.

I have Gerberas in my yard and they are perennials. I have lost some, but most came back from last year and bloom off and on all summer. My neighbor has some in a pot that are blooming again. I don't have any in bloom right now but the foliage is still good. I don't do anything to them - in fact, the sprinklers don't even water them - just mother nature. I wonder if they need to be kept virtually dry.

Mine are spring and fall bloomers. They don't seem to care for very hot or cool weather.
