O'I don't know about 20 years ago you could buy a clear rooting jelly that you put your geraniums in. it was like clear wallpaper paste in a light green bottle
Would it be okay to just cover the cuttings if there is a danger of v cold weather or frost? If I heat the greenhouse how hot should it be? Haven't got enough window calls!
I've never taken cuttings before can it be done at this time of year? I left my geraniums in a light shed over winter and they are now very straggly. Can I take cuttings or just cut them back a bit?
If you're talking about pelargoniums, I find they take most of the year round. Should be fine now.
Yes. But they can get a bit straggly, so prune them hard and fleece them well. Also, it's quite nice to bring in new stock to ring the changes. I find that they root anywhere anytime, especially in our gravel carpark - Am I just lucky?
My last batch are now in their 4th year in tubs outside. A wonderful present that just go on and on - I have added irises/small daffs and tulips amongst the geraniums (only a long narrow earthenware tub - and they all flower before the geraniums so gives a great show.
