Hello;

I started my geraniums from seed in Feb. The plants
are doing well except i'am not getting any flowers.
Have lots of leaves though. I grew under lights for
12-15 hrs a day,and used the reconmended fertilizer,
This is my first time starting geraniums from seed.

Thanks.


Sometimes I wake up grouchy,other days I just let her sleep,while I'am outside in the garden she is
counting sheep. (%$#@%*#&@) sorry honey,I didn't
say that...honey put down that hoe... :(

Geraniums from seed are slow to flower. Are they still inside? They need need full sun. Flowering may not happen till late June. But once they start they will flower thru till frost. Cuttings flower faster but slow down by the end of August.

I discovered from a grower that geraniums like their soil on the dry side. Water them, let the soil dry out, then water again. Keep your fertilizer program going and you will have flowers.

Hello; Sorry for the delay getting back with you,to answere
the first question No they are not inside, I planted them
over the weekend,and they do receive at least 8-10 hrs of
sun with filtered shade later on in the day. I checked one
plant today and there is a flower stem starting to come up,
like I mentioned before this is my first time with Geraniums,
so thanks for all the info, you have been a great help.....

Thanks again
Donnie
