Temperatures GeraniumSole pieno
Let's grow the The Geranium in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. These plants shouldn't be grown in the garden during the cold period; in autumn the plants usually perish, and should be eradicated from the ground.These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Geranium with non-woven fabric.

Care Geranium
The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants are perennial herbs.

Feed Geranium
Before placing the annuals, let’s enrich the soil with a small dose of organic fertilizer or slow release granular chemical fertilizer; during the spring we should use a specific fertilizer for flowering plants to be mixed with the irrigating water, to be used every 20-30 days.

Irrigation GeraniumTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Geranium every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, we can interrupt watering, and let the plants perish.

Adversity Geranium
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Substrate Geranium
They prefer dissolved soils, with an optimal drainage.
