  • Methods of Propogating Geraniums

    Oh, I almost forgot.  If you recall, last autumn I pulled out the geraniums, shook off the dirt and hung them upside down from the cellar rafters.  Well, this moring I got them, potted them in individual pots and watered them well.  Wish me luck.  I will keep you posted.  My mother used this method to overwinter her geraniums and she always had lovely flowers. 

    One more thing.  You know I also took clippings from the mother plants and potted them. During the winter they flourished and I’ve had to cut the stems in half and repot each of them. 

    I’m also trying yet another method of propogation.  I read somewhere and don’t ask me where – that leaf cuttings placed in potting mixtures and kept watered will grow new leaves and also roots.  So, I’m trying that method, as well.  Again, I’ll let you know how that experiement turns out.

    Isn’t this fun?
