Growing & Maintenance Tips for Hanging Basket: Geranium

We recommend fertilizing these hanging baskets weekly with a balanced fertilizer like 20-20-20. Adding a slow release fertilizer on top of the soil is also recommended if weekly fertilizing is not practical. Follow manufacturers instructions for rates.

Keep baskets evenly moist, however plants will tolerate dry soil for longer periods than other hanging basket types.

Deadhead geraniums as their flowers begin to dry.  Follow the flower stem back to where it intersects with the larger stem and pinch it back at that point. Minicascade geraniums do not require deadheading.
