Geraniums and Petunias

Geraniums

The perfect and easy addition to any garden or container. Featuring vibrant red, pink and white colour options, these are known to be resistant to pests such as deer and rabbits.

Geraniums need to be wet but not soggy. Do not let the roots sit in water. Water until water starts to run out from the bottom of pot/container.

Place in a location that gets 4-6 hours of sunlight a day for maximum bloom.

Fertilize

You may fertilize every 2 or 3 weeks. Use a Flower and Veggie 10-15-19 fertilizer.
