Geranium Questions

1. When should I buy geraniums?

The best time to buy geraniums is in the spring, when they are actively growing and producing flowers. However, geraniums can be purchased and planted at any time of year, as long as the temperature is not too cold.

When buying geraniums, look for plants that are healthy and have a good root system. The leaves should be green and free of pests and diseases. The flowers should be bright and colourful.

2. Do geraniums come back every year?

Geraniums can come back every year as they are perennials. However, geraniums are not frost-hardy, so they may not come back every year in colder climates, and therefore will need to be replaced.

3. What is the lifespan of a geranium?

The lifespan of a geranium is typically 2-3 years. However, with proper care, geraniums can live for much longer. In fact, some geraniums have been known to live for over 10 years!

4. Do geraniums do better in pots or in the ground?

Geraniums can thrive in both pots and in the ground. However, there are some advantages and disadvantages to each option.

Geraniums in the ground

Ultimately, the best place to plant geraniums depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for a versatile and easy-to-care-for option, geraniums in pots are a good choice. If you are looking for a more permanent and natural-looking option, geraniums in the ground are a good choice.

5. Why are coffee grounds good for Geraniums?

Coffee grounds are a good source of nitrogen, which is essential for plant growth. They also contain other nutrients, such as phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, that can benefit geraniums. When coffee grounds are added to the soil, they break down over time and release these nutrients. This can help to improve the fertility of the soil and provide geraniums with the nutrients they need to grow and thrive.

6. Do geraniums prefer sun or shade?

Most annual geraniums, like zonal and zonal hybrid geraniums, are sun-lovers and thrive in at least 6-7 hours of direct sunlight each day. In such environments, they'll flower most profusely and stay compact. However, there are exceptions:

7. Do geraniums need a lot of water?

Geraniums don't need a lot of water! In fact, they're quite drought-tolerant and prefer to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering is one of the most common mistakes people make with geraniums, so it's important to let the soil dry before giving them another drink.

8. Where are Geraniums native to?

There's a bit of confusion regarding "geraniums" due to two closely related genera:

So, depending on which type of "geranium" you're referring to, their native origins differ:

To avoid confusion, specifying "true geranium" or "pelargonium" helps pinpoint their exact native regions.
