Pelargoniums (common geraniums) cuttings - where am in going wrong?

Posted: 06/03/2016 at 14:43

No rooting powder for them, I don't wait for them to dry, some do.

mine just go into any compost, mustn't water too much though. Take nice big stemmed cuttings, strip off the bottom leaves so they don't make contact with the compost, and make sure you push the compost so it's tight around the stem. I only ever put them on the window sill in the conservatory. It's far too cold for them in a greenhouse, even after mine root I keep them in.

After they root, pick out the growing stem in the middle so you get a bushy plant instead of a tree.

Keep trying, if you only get once to two, it's a start. We all had to start somewherE.

Failed tulips in containers

Could have been mice squirrels or voles. Last year they turfed every one out of my window boxes, this year they left those alone and ate every crocus, just left the outer skin laying on the top. Gotta feed the wildlife I suppose. My dad warned me to cover them with close wire mesh, did I listen....

I have had plants, last year I saved the seeds and will sow in about a week. Never grown then from seeds before but don't see why they would be any different from any other plants.
