The trouble with all the books we read, both old and new, is that the plants have read none of them, and will do exactly as they please when they please, and whenever they please. Most hardy geraniums benefit from a haircut in autumn, I've also known people to do it now to get young growth before the winter, looks good throughout then unless it gets frozen. in the end, provided you have not maybe overdone the nurturing and so on, it will just get on with it. i have many of these all over the garden, they are wonderful plants. Sometimes, as with many things, less is more, maybe leave it alone for a while? I believe it's only been in place 2 months? It hasn't had any chance to grow good roots to keep it well settled, it will, just give it time.
