BEST TO START SEEDS EARLY INDOORS

In early spring, 8 to 10 weeks before last expected frost, sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover lightly, no more than 1/4 inch deep, keep moist and about 65-75°F (18-24°C). Provide a strong light source until ready to plant outdoors. Feed seedlings every 2 weeks with half-strength liquid fertilizer. Once large enough to handle, move seedlings into individual 3-4 inch containers to develop root systems. When weather is above 55°F (13°C) night and day, acclimate 3-4 inch long seedlings outdoors, then transplant into final containers.

 

CONTAINER GROWING

Choose hanging baskets, pots or windowboxes at least 12-15 inches in diameter and 8-10 inches deep. Fill with well moistened fresh potting mix. Transplant well developed seedlings into containers, spacing them 4 inches apart. Gently water after planting. Keep containers in a filtered sun location or a spot with afternoon shade.

 

GROWING NOTES

Keep Pelargoniums well watered all summer and mulch pots well to retain soil moisture. Feed them with good all-purpose fertilizer twice a month according to package directions. Remove spent flowers and seedpods to encourage reblooming.
