Default Pelargoniums and geraniums problems

Hi,

My Pelargoniums and geraniums have got serious problems and I'm not too sure
how to solve them.

The pelargonium flowers- esp the white variety- exhibit a problem similar to
the rose disease called botrytis.

The flowers have sickly pink red spots in them. The flowers are weak. Most
of the buds just turn
brown and die.

The geraniums have small angry browny-red spots under their leaves and
yellow spots on top. The leaves turn brown and the plants looks positively
sick.

Not too sure what to do. What should i spray?

Cheers,

The geranium problem might be Geranium Rust (uromyces geranii). Not
sure about the pelargoniums - western flower thrips perhaps?
