How to Water Geraniums
How often should a geranium be watered?
With annual geraniums, check soil weekly, and water when the top inch is dry. Keep newly planted perennial geraniums in consistently moist soil during the first growing season. Once perennial geraniums are established, they can usually survive on rainfall, except during severe drought.
How do you water potted geraniums?
Although geraniums do require moisture, they will likely rot if their potting mix stays wet for too long. To prevent this, water only when the top inch of the soil is dry, and make sure that moisture can easily drain through drainage holes in the bottom of the pot.
Can you water geraniums at night?
The Best Time To Water Geraniums
Evenings are not ideal times to water but if you forget to do so in the morning, go for evenings. However, do not set your watering schedule for evenings. If you water in the evening, the soil stays moist for longer than in your water in the morning.
How do you perk up geraniums?
Remove all of the dead and brown leaves from the geranium plant. Next trim away any unhealthy stems. Healthy geranium stems will feel firm if gently squeezed. If you would like a less woody and leggy geranium, cut back the geranium plant by one-third, focusing on stems that have started to turn woody.
