Hardy geraniums, not to be confused with pelargoniums, include popular favourites such as ‘Ann Folkard’ and ‘Rozanne’. In this video guide, Rosie Yeomans demonstrates how simple it is to cut them back, after their first flush flowering is over in early summer. Though it may seem drastic, cutting them back will produce a second flush of the gorgeous blooms later in the season, so you can enjoy them for longer.
