How far back can I prune geraniums?
geraniums or pelargoniums?
The little pink geraniums you can snip back with shears and with in a week there growing back but it is now getting a bit late in the year and may be best left til spring.
You can cut back hardy geraniums quite hard earlier in the year and you'll get another flush of flowers, but this late in the season I'd leave the summer's growth to protect the crown of the plant over the winter.
Doesn't make a lot of difference now-they will start dying back soon anyway-there was a similar question about this earlier in the week
Is it too late to take cuttings from my Roxanne hardy Geranium and if possible how do I do it.
Better to split the plants Maureen. Geraniums divide very easily and even small pieces will grow away if they have some root attached. An established clump will survive quite happily having pieces hacked off. I've done some recently
