What are geraniums?

Geraniums are a perennial plant, which means that they will grace your garden year after year. Their beautiful flowers make the perfect addition to hanging baskets, beds, borders and containers. Geraniums have a distinctive scent, a sweet and spicy smell released when you rub the leaves. 

Although they can be used in a variety of locations to add colour and decorative charm, they are poisonous to animals, particularly dogs. When considering planting geranium bulbs in a pet household, ensure that they are planted away from the reach of pets.

How do I care for my geraniums?

Geraniums thrive in well-drained soil and prefer full sun. Water them when the soil is dry to the touch, and deadhead spent flowers to encourage more blooms. Fertilize them during the growing season, and bring them indoors during cold winters in cooler climates.

Can geraniums be grown from seeds?

Yes, geraniums can be grown from seeds, but many people prefer propagating them through cuttings as it is a more reliable method. If growing from seeds, start them indoors in early spring and transplant them outdoors after the last frost.

How do I prune geraniums?

Prune geraniums to remove spent flowers and leggy growth. Pinching back the stems encourages bushier growth. Additionally, prune in early spring to remove dead or damaged branches.

Can geraniums be grown indoors?

Yes, geraniums can be grown indoors in containers. Provide them with bright, indirect light, well-draining soil, and allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Bring them outdoors during the growing season for optimal health.

How do I overwinter geraniums?

In colder climates, geraniums can be overwintered indoors. Before the first frost, dig up the plants, trim them back, and pot them in containers. Place them in a cool, dark area, and water sparingly. Bring them back outdoors in spring after the danger of frost has passed.
