Hurry Spring and Summer


It was a gray day and didn't get as warm as they said it would. So, I thought I'd post a spring picture. I love geraniums. I have grown many different colors, but I think this is my favorite one. It seems to bloom more than the other colors. You get such a bang for your buck and anyone can grow them. I made many cutting from my geraniums using rooting hormone powder and had a 100% success rate. Also, I have begun overwintering them in the barn. I cut them back and water them sparingly throughout the winter then bring them out in spring and they all come back.

  1. I guess I'm in that low percentile of those that try and try to grow them and can't. They grow for a while and I do try and baby them, but then they die. Maybe I'm over watering, under watering, who knows. My mother can take a small piece, root it, and have a huge plant before long! They are pretty!

  2. I love too "geranios" (or "cardenales").

    I have pink, red and white.

  5. Greetings to you Maria, and Josephine and Theresa! Theresa, make sure your geraniums are getting full sun amd water when the soil feels mostly dry to the touch. I probably water and feed mine too much.
