General Information: Geraniums are a garden classic that perform equally well in containers or in the ground.

Geraniums, scientifically known as Pelargonium, are popular plants known for their vibrant flowers and aromatic leaves. They come in a wide range of colors, including red, pink, white, and purple, allowing you to create stunning displays in your garden or container.

When it comes to growing geraniums, one of the most important factors to consider is the right location. These plants thrive in areas with full sun exposure, preferably receiving at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. Ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogging, as geraniums are susceptible to root rot.

Proper watering is crucial for the health of your geraniums. It is recommended to water them deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root problems, while underwatering can cause the plants to wilt and suffer. Finding the right balance is key.

Fertilizing your geraniums is essential to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms. Use a balanced fertilizer with a ratio of 10-10-10 or 20-20-20, applying it every four to six weeks during the growing season. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for the correct dosage.

Pruning is another important aspect of geranium care. Regularly removing spent flowers and dead leaves will not only keep your plants looking tidy but also encourage new growth and continuous blooming. Additionally, pruning can help maintain the desired shape and size of your geraniums and help prevent disease.

Geraniums are relatively low-maintenance plants, but they can be susceptible to certain pests and diseases but usually in our sunny, dry summers in Manitoba geraniums remain healthy. Always a good idea though, to keep an eye out for common issues such as aphids, spider mites, and powdery mildew. If necessary, treat the affected plants with appropriate insecticides or fungicides, following the instructions carefully.
