How to Grow Geraniums or Pelargonium

Geraniums, or Pelargoniums, have been an essential component in landscape planting schemes and container gardening for years. These low-maintenance, high-performing, good-looking plants are mostly tender evergreens used as bedding or houseplants.

Although Pelargoniums are often called Geraniums, this is not correct, as the true Geraniums are hardy herbaceous plants. Pelargoniums are not hardy.

Geranium seed should be planted from January to April, ideally into plug trays to prevent root disturbance later. Germination is often rapid, from as little as 4 days at 21-23oC, when sown onto an open seed-sowing compost and covered lightly with vermiculite, but can take up to 28 days.

Light is not necessary for germination. Do not allow the germinating seedlings to dry out.

Once 4 to 6 true leaves have developed, transplant the seedlings into 3 inch pots and grow on in a frost free position until ready for planting out in May.

Pelargoniums prefer semi-shade and the cooler sun of the evening.
