Geraniums are a longtime favorite of gardeners. They are easy to grow, colorful, and emit a lovely scent. Here's how to grow geraniums in your home and garden!
Although they may be kept outdoors during the warmer part of the year, geraniums are typically kept indoors to overwinter. Alternatively, if provided with enough light, they can bloom indoors all year long.
How to Care for Geraniums
Allow soil to dry to some extent between waterings, then water thoroughly.
During the winter, water much less, but do not let the roots dry out entirely. Geraniums do best when given a period of dormancy through the winter months, during which they use less water and do not grow much.
Place plants in pots with drainage holes to avoid root rot.
Use a well-draining potting mixture (not heavy, clayey soil) when planting in containers. Geraniums do not like to sit in soggy, compacted soil.
For maximum bloom, place the plants in an area where they will get 4-6 hours of sunlight.
