Overwintering Geraniums: A Complete Guide
In this video, Dave explains everything you need to know about how to store geraniums over winter so that they flower again in Spring next year.
Sometimes you might have some of these shoots that are quite long. Again, you could try and take cuttings off them or you can just cut it off, what you don’t want, especially if you’re overwintering geraniums through the whole season. You don’t want that to be rocking. And if it’s in a in a draft or anything, that can cause damage to a plant. And the thing with these is next year, we’ll take cuttings from the new growth. We probably won’t put these plants back in. We’ll take cuttings and use the cuttings as the new plant. So for each each one of these, this has got three shoots on. So once these shoots get to two or three inches long next spring, that’s when we’ll take the cuttings. And then we might discard the old plant. You don’t have to, but generally the new plants will flower better. And anything that you take off the plant, just put it into the compost bin.
This method, which is the one I prefer. The plant’s visible, it’s on your greenhouse bench. You can keep an eye on it. Once the weather starts to warm up in spring, it’ll naturally want to grow and you’ll be able to see that growth and you can start watering it and feeding it.
