Wilting Geraniums

I am having a terrible time growing geraniums. My leaves start wilting and turn yellow. Am I watering too much or not enough? How much should I fertilize?

Complex issue. Might just be sick plant from nursery. Might be infected ground from last sick plant. Or ground is more like cement than dirt, and water never makes to the roots. Or too porus soil, and water doesn't stick around long enough for roots to take up water. In soil near by put same amout of water to it as plant, wait 30 minutes and dig up area near plant and see it dirt absorbed water.

I lost a couple of geranium plants last year by over-watering them. Now I let the soil go 'almost dry'; then give them a good watering. These new plants are getting quite large and full of blooms.

I am having the same problem with two geraniums I received from a friend. I have had a previous geranium die at my hands! Everyone knows I do better with lawyers and weeds than with plants and ministers of religion--- Any help will be appreciated.
