Geraniums are not extremely demanding plants during summer, because they adore warmth and sunshine. But, during winter, however, you need to pay special attention if you want them to resist vigorously until the next spring. Here are some tips to keep in mind if you want to enjoy geraniums beauty next year.
Keep geraniums indoors
Geraniums need warmth, so they shouldn’t be left on the balcony or on the terrace. These must be moved inside the house before first frost. And when you move them inside the house, trimming should be done, and also removing dry and affected branches by disease or pests.
Placing the pots
In winter, the geraniums must be placed in a bright room where the temperature is constant. Avoid rooms with sudden temperature changes. The place where geraniums are sheltered should be well-ventilated. They can be positioned on the window sill, but be careful not to have a radiator under them. It’s best that the room temperature should be between 59-71 degrees Fahrenheit.
Watering geraniums in winter
In winter, geraniums enter in a rest period, which is why they don’t need frequent watering. Geraniums can be watered once a week or every two weeks. They will only be watered when the soil is completely dry.
