    Do I take it these are bedding geraniums/pelargoniums?  It's what they do sometimes - have they had a bit of a shock?  Were they hardened off properly or have they been a bit too dry?  

    It's probably just their reaction to being transplated and a change in their environment - I wouldn't worry about it - take off the red leaves if you don't like them image

    The reason for Zonal Pelargoniums (bedding geranium) leaves turning red is that the temperature around them is too low. It is nothing to do with watering unless the plants are very dry at the roots - not likely as you are tending to them.

    They will return to green when the temperature comes back to their liking.
