Geranium Care

Geranium Super Moon Red is a classic Geranium variety with large, eye-catching red flowers. Red Geraniums flower early in the spring, producing abundant blooms throughout the season. Thriving in full sun, Red Geraniums are great for sunny patio gardens. As a bonus, the blooms of Red Geraniums may attract pollinators such as bees and hummingbirds to your garden.

LIGHT

Geraniums will grow best in partial to full sun, where they can receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight.

WATER

Provide your Geraniums with plenty of water as they do not like to dry out completely; water just before the soil is dry. During hot and dry times, more watering may be required, and during rainy times, less watering may be needed. Be sure to avoid splashing water on the foliage and blooms when watering, as this can cause diseases.

FOOD

Fertilize once a month using a liquid fertilizer or add a slow-release fertilizer to the soil according to instructions.

ADDITIONAL CARE

To encourage new flower growth on your Geraniums, remove spent blooms in a practice known as deadheading. Removing the dead flowers will help promote additional growth throughout the season. If you live in an environment where freezing occurs, you can overwinter your Geraniums indoors. Bring the plants inside and keep them in a spot where they will receive direct sunlight like a south-facing window and water less frequently. Geraniums will grow best in an area that is sheltered from wind exposure.
