Geraniums are not extremely demanding in the summer, because they adore warmth and sunshine. Instead, in winter 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 their beauty next year.
Keep geraniums indoors
Geraniums need warmth, so they shouldn’t be left on the balcony or terrace. They must be moved to the house before the first hoar. When they are brought indoors, trimming should be done, as well as branches affected by disease or pests, or the dried ones. Also, remove any dry or wilt leaf.
Placing the pots
In winter, the geranium must be placed in a lighted room where the temperature is constant. Avoid rooms where sudden temperature changes occur. They should also be positioned where the air currents don’t reach. The space must be a well-ventilated one. They can be positioned on the window sill, but be careful not to have a radiator under them. Ideally, the room temperature should be between 59-71.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Watering geraniums during winter
In winter, geraniums should enter a rest period, which is why they don’t need frequent watering. Geraniums can be watered once a week or once every two weeks. They will only be wetted when their land is completely dry.
