Geranium FAQs

What's eating the flower buds of my geraniums?

Geranium bud worm is a common pest on Geraniums. Spray with BT or Spinosad.

How do I overwinter my geraniums?

There several was to keep Geraniums from year to year. First, they can be kept as houseplants in a southern window with only occasional water.

A second method is to cut them back, leaving about 1" of stem above the soil. Then store the plants in a garage or basement for the winter. Allow them to be mostly dry. Come late April or early May bring the plants outdoors if the threat of frost has past.

My Geraniums are leggy and not blooming what is wrong?

If Geranums are in too much shade they may get stretched out (leggy) and blooms are infrequent. Geraniums can be cut back to encourage bushier growth and fertilizing once a month always helps.
