African Violets

How often are you watering?  You may be over watering it or is it in 
direct sunlight for extended periods of time now that the weather is warmer?
African Violets tend to like being slightly pot bound but if yours is 
still in the original soil it was bought in you should try repotting it.  
One of mine grew much healthier after I repotted it into some new soil 
and out of its original soil.  When you repot it observe the roots and if 
they appear brown and maybe even scarce or look like they were dying back 
that is a sure sign of a root pathogen.  In that case cut off on the 
water a bit.  One other thing, are you watering from above with cold 
water?  That can cause necrosis on the leaf surface.

Good Luck!
