Hello. I have a geranium that I brought from the outside to my house in
November. I have noticed that it flowers sometimes - not that often, it
is in a sun room. SHould I trim the plant? - that is cut it down?
Please advise on how to care. Thanks
Pull the plant out of the pot, shake all the dirt off the roots and
put the plant in a brown paper bag. Hang the bag upside down in your
basement or other suitable cool, dry place. When warm weather arrives
simply re-plant your geranium.
I pinch back my house geraniums when they get too leggy and/or to make them
bushier and more compact. I feed them 1/4 of the regular dose of plant food
every time I water just like I do my other houseplants except for a few
months in the winter which is rest time. Once they get used to the indoors,
they bloom pretty continuously, I've found. I have some favorites on the
window sill from three summers ago. My geraniums are in an east window.
In the summer they bloom so much that the hummingbirds beat on the glass
trying to get to them. :)
