When Do Geraniums Bloom

Why are my geraniums not blooming?

The two most common reasons for geraniums not blooming prolifically are too little light or too much fertilizer. Geraniums are a sun loving plant that need 4-6 hours of full sun a day, or perhaps longer in somewhat filtered light. South and west exposures are usually best.

How long does it take geraniums to bloom?

Geranium seeds should be sown in early to mid-February to produce flowering plants for spring. Flowering occurs approximately 13 to 15 weeks after sowing.

Do geraniums only bloom once?

Most geraniums can be cut back twice in one season, allowing them to bloom at least three times in one season.

Can you overwater geraniums?

It's very easy to overwater geraniums. If you're trying to maintain moist soil, you can easily add too much water to the point that the soil becomes wet. Geraniums react badly to wet soil. In fact, the excess moisture can cause health issues for your plant and prevent growth.

Do geraniums live year round?

Although geraniums (Pelargonium spp.) are perennials, they are tender plants that survive year-round only in the mild climates of U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11. In cooler regions, geraniums are often treated as annuals.

Do geraniums spread?

Hardy geranium plants grow larger over time, spreading and developing into big clumps. These can be divided by cutting them in half or quarters with a sharp spade. This can be done in autumn, or in spring as they start into growth. Divide them every 3 to 5 years to keep them growing and flowering strongly.

What temperature is too cold for geraniums?

Response to Cold Damage

In order to remain perennially evergreen, staying alive with all leaves and stems, geranium plants cannot be exposed to frosts. Expect extensive damage or plant death when air temperatures drop and remain below 25 to 28 degrees F.

Can geranium survive summer?

Geraniums are fairly hardy in the summer, but they still need a little extra care to keep the blooms looking fresh and vibrant.
