My Geranium Is As Impatient As I Am
January 31, 2016 7:05am CST
Here is a picture of one of my geranium that I kept from the summer. Right now, it is just waiting and waiting to blossom. But it won't because if have to constantly prune the leaves. I am pruning the plant as if I don't, it will get too leggy. And I want to keep that plant alive so I can put it back outside as soon as possible. This will be its third year and I am keeping my fingers crossed for it to survive and thrive as usual. Did you keep some of your plants from your last year garden and put them back out in the Spring?

I have done this too and find that geraniums do well when you keep them if you do like you said and keep them pruned back. I was in the garden yesterday and thought of you. There is growth in the ground and some of the plants have started their spring rebirth. This plant is coming back up, along with some green that I found in some of the others.

This house doesn't have windows conducive to growing plants inside. The front windows don't get a lot of light because of the deep porch, The best windows that get sufficient light are in the bedroom and if I had plants in there Ruby would probably knock them over, since they would be in her space. So, no, I don't keep from year to year.
