  • Just take everything out of the container in came in make sure the hole is big enough, put some good soil on the bottom of the hole put the plant in then fill around it with more good soil. I love geraniums they are so easy and flower well into fall and are drought resistant.

  • I always put them in my window boxes. We get about 5 geraniums per window box.

  • Geraniums are perfect for pots, window boxes, lining the front of flower gardens. You need to dig your hole about twice as wide and deep as the pot that they originally come it. The old adage is to dig a $10 hole for a $5 plant. As you pull them out of their original container - make sure that the roots aren't pot bound by taking a sharp knife and gentle scoring them on the bottom and a couple of the sides.
