How to Pot Geraniums


hardy5

Geraniums die if left out in cold temperatures, but if they are transported inside, they can survive the winter. Move the flowers into a good-sized pot. Geraniums come in reds, yellows, purples and pinks. The blossoms give off a sweet scent used in many types of perfumes and oils. The flowers come in various shapes, including bells and stars. After the temperatures warm up, the plants can be put back into the ground.

Difficulty:
Moderately Easy

Instructions

Things You’ll Need
  • Pot larger than the root ball
  • Hand shovel
  • Dirt
  • Fertilizer
    1. Use a hand shovel to dig up the plant. Try to avoid cutting or damaging the roots.
    2. Grasp the plant firmly at the base and lift. Set the plant into the pot. Hold the plant upright with one hand and pour dirt around the root ball.
    3. Water well.

Tips & Warnings

  • Set up a light by the plants if there isn’t enough natural light in the room.

  • Plant geraniums in pots to put outside in the spring instead so the pots just need taken in when the temperature drops.
