Q.Geraniums Dying. Leaves Curl, Turn Yellow, Get Yellow Spots, Droop And Get Brown. Stem Gets Brown And Wet. Multi Folar Spray Doesn

Geraniums are in pots. Have done this for 20 years and never had a problem. did purchase some plants that looked like something might have been wrong with the leaves, which were brown had a few leaves turning brown but was assured a plant spray would solve problem…if it became a problem. Spray didn’t work. Is this more than just a single infestation? Oh, yes; one plant that I’ve overwintered for a number of years seems so far to be impervious to disease. I haven’t added any new plants to the pot. It’s the only one i think i can overwinter this year. Am new to reaching out for help because i’ve never had any problems like this year’s; so is there any other information you require? I have no photos or images to send.

Unfortunately, without images of the issues in question it will be hard to say what is going on. It does sound like an infection. This could be bacterial or fungal. Both will be caused by overly wet soils.

fungicides may help, as well as making sure that the plants dry out, completely, down to about 1/3 of the way into the container between waterings. Here are some articles that will help:
