How to Care for Red Geranium
After purchasing your Red Geranium, be sure to read about our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant all season long!
When Should I Water My Geranium Red?
Geraniums are drought-tolerant and heat-resistant, so they do not require an intense watering schedule. You should only be watering your plant when its soil feels dry to the touch. If you are replanting or repotting your Geranium flower annual make sure to keep it well-watered for at least the first 2 weeks, or until they become fully established. Do not allow their soil to stay too moist, this will cause their roots to sit in too much water and could result in root rot.
How do I Fertilize My Red Geranium Plant?
We recommend you fertilize your Geranium once a week during the growing season using a slow-release granular or water-soluble fertilizer. This will help aid your annual to bloom many more flowers during their blooming season. If anything, fertilize at the time of planting.
How Much Sunlight Should My Red Geranium Get?
The best place for your Geranium is in an area that receives at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day. While they can survive in partially shaded areas, your plant will not have as much vigor.
Do I Need to Prune My Red Geranium?
It is important to deadhead the blooms of your Geranium as they start to die (browning or weakening wills signal this). Cutting off spent flowers will encourage the plant to focus its energies on producing more blooms.
