Keeping geraniums over winter!
Posted October 16, 2015on:
I get lots of compliments and questions about how I successfully keep my many pots of geraniums over winter. It’s so easy!!! When it begins to freeze I move them to a dark, cool basement room. The only light comes through a small east facing window. We do nothing with them. When they begin to show signs of green (usually March) we move them in front of a large south-facing main floor window. As they grow I fertilize and prune tall stalks. In May, or earlier if is warm enough, we move the outside! I continue fertilizing and pruning as needed, using pruned stalks to fill in any gaps. Some of the larger plants are six or seven years old!
