Pot pelargo­ni­ums from the gar­den

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

Pelargo­ni­ums are such re­li­able bed­ding plants, of­fer­ing months of sum­mer colour, but they’re not hardy, so now we’re com­ing to the end of the grow­ing sea­son you can pot them up and bring them in­doors. Over­win­ter them frost free and you can en­joy their colour­ful dis­play again next year. Dig up the plants with a trowel, tak­ing care not to dam­age the roots, and place them into a pot of pot­ting com­post. Cut off any dead flow­ers or yel­low­ing leaves and trim the plants back by about one third. Keep them at 7-10C (45-50F) and your pelargo­ni­ums may con­tinue flow­er­ing for sev­eral more weeks or even months.
