Common questions about growing Pelargoniums

1. When should I buy pelargoniums?

The best time to buy pelargoniums is in the spring when they are actively growing and blooming.

2. Is there a difference between geraniums and pelargoniums?

Yes, there is a difference between geraniums and pelargoniums. Although they are often called by the same name, they are actually two different genera of plants that belong to the same family, Geraniaceae.

Geraniums are hardy perennials that can survive cold winters in temperate climates. They have soft, herbaceous stems and die back to the ground in the winter. Geraniums have five petals that are all similar in size and shape. They come in a wide variety of colors, including white, pink, red, purple, and blue.

Pelargoniums are tender perennials that are not hardy in cold climates. They have woody stems and can be grown as annuals in most temperate climates. Pelargoniums have flowers with two upper petals that are different in size and shape from the three lower petals. They also come in a wide variety of colors.

3. Do Pelargonium come back year after year?

Yes, pelargoniums can come back year after year. New Zealand has a temperate climate with mild winters and warm summers, which is ideal for growing pelargoniums as perennials. However, there are a few things you can do to increase the chances of your plant surviving the winter:

4. Do pelargoniums prefer sun or shade?

Pelargoniums are sun-loving plants and prefer to be in full sun for at least 6-8 hours per day. This will help them to produce abundant blooms and maintain their vibrant foliage. However, pelargoniums can also tolerate some shade, especially in hotter climates where they may benefit from some relief from the afternoon sun.

5. How long do pelargoniums live?

The lifespan of pelargoniums can vary depending on the climate they are grown in and the care they receive. In warmer climates, they can live for up to 40 years or longer with proper care. However, in colder climates they are typically grown as annuals and will not survive the winter outdoors.

6. Are geraniums toxic to dogs?

Yes, geraniums are toxic to dogs. All parts of the geranium plant, including the leaves, flowers, and stems, contain geraniol and linalool, which are toxic compounds that can cause gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, diarrhoea, and lethargy in dogs. In severe cases, geranium poisoning can lead to seizures and even death.

7. How often should I water my Pelargonium?

The frequency with which you water your pelargonium will depend on a number of factors, including the climate you live in, the size of the plant, the type of pot it is in, and the time of year. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should water your pelargoniums every two to three days during their active growing season. During the winter, when the plants are dormant, you can water them less frequently, once a week or even less often.

8. How do you make pelargoniums bushy?

Here are some tips on how to make pelargoniums bushy:

By following these tips, you can help your pelargoniums grow into full, bushy plants that will provide you with years of enjoyment.

9. What is the best position for pelargonium?

Pelargoniums, also known as geraniums, are sun-loving plants that thrive in bright, sunny locations. They prefer at least six hours of direct sunlight per day, although they can tolerate some shade during the hottest part of the day. Pelargoniums are also sensitive to wind and cold, so it is important to choose a location that is sheltered from these elements.
