What is the difference between cutting above a "bud" and then a "node" pictures a bit out of focus for me and both look the same.

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?

Can I take geranium cuttings now or is it to late

If you're talking about pelargoniums, I find they take most of the year round.  Should be fine now.

Do geraniums come back year after year?

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?

Thanks Biofreak, it's the first time last year that I had bought them, so when I was tidying up on Sunday, I thought do I or don't I throw them, one looks quite green at the bottom, I love the smell of them when they are flowering : )

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.

I look forward to seeing your photos in summer, thanks I know never to throw them now : )
