Standard Geraniums

Posted: 10/05/2014 at 17:43

Would I need to cut it back at all? Or would I leave the stem intact and just pinch out any dying leaves?

Logic seems to tell me that I should just let the stem grow.

HELLO FORKERS!

Stupid wind causing havoc here today, 50-60mph gusts. 1 of my pots of Geraniums blew over and broke.

Rescue mission for Monday I think!

Hi all, I have bought a standard Geranium for the patio this Summer. What is the best way to keep them over Winter?

I have a greenhouse which I can keep heated or it can go by the back door which receives a good amount of light but no-where near as good as the greenhouse.

Do they require any other special treatment?

I wouldnt tie them up like that, it inhibits photosynthesis and they may not re-appear next year.

You could always put some Pansy or Viola in there for a few months
