|Elizas lovely plant|
Many thanks to Eliza who brought a beautiful, unusual and wonderfully scented Geranium on Sunday for everyone to share cuttings. Get yourself rich in geraniums by taking cuttings now. Here's how courtesy of BBC Gardeners world;
Bedding geraniums are actually members of the genus Pelargonium. Many varieties of pelargonium are used as bedding or house plants.
Unlike most annual bedding plants, geraniums are easily propagated by cuttings, so you don't have to fork out for more plants the following summer. Kept on a warm windowsill over winter, your cuttings will quickly develop roots and leaves. They'll be ready to plant out in spring, and will flower all summer.
How to do it
Adam's tipStand cuttings on an east- or west-facing windowsill, as they need a good source of light but not direct sun.
Water sparingly if the compost feels dry, but don't overwater. Remove flower buds and brown leaves.
Remove black or wilted cuttings as these may harbour a disease, which could spread to other plants.
