Plants – Geraniums Reborn

blog 2 003

These geraniums might look like something headed for the compost heap, but take a second look. Do you see the green leaves? This is new growth sprouting from what seemed dead and gone. In the Fall of the year I pulled my geraniums from the ground, shook of excess dirt from the roots, and placed them inside this basin. I put them in a corner of my garage and pretty much forgot about them. This week I noticed they were sending out new growth so I brought them inside and potted them up. I’ll update their progress in a few weeks. More information on saving geraniums in this way can be found here: Over-wintering geranium plants.
