The geranium flowers did not smell sweet like the roses or sweet peas that she grew, but it was their bold colors that catches your eye. I would pick them along with the other flowers. They were pretty but they did not last long in vases. They were a messy plant. They would over grow in the flower beds and the plants would have this hole of dead brown leaves, the beds look terrible. When my Mom would trim them back, they even looked worst.
I AM GLAD I DID!
A couple of months ago, I transplanted it into a new container, a glazed. The last container was a terra-cotta and it loved being in there. So far the plant seems to like its new home. I will need to keep watch very closely. The plant does not like being in soggy soil and the glazed container has been known to smother plant roots if watered too much or the wrong kind of soil, what I have experienced.
So far the leaves are big and beautiful and I do see some buds forming too.
I know that I will still have to battle the caterpillars, but look at the color.
