Show moreWater your 'Hanging Geraniums on a regular basis to prevent the soil from drying out. These pelargoniums are drought tolerant therefore the soil around the roots definitely shouldn't be too wet. A constant wetness of the roots may lead to root rot, so ensure proper drainage in the flower pot. We recommend cutting off the faded flowers to encourage a further flowering of these beautiful flowers. For an extra rich flowering, it is advisable to feed with plant food when watering, on a regular basis during the summer. Hanging Geraniums can be preserved throughout the winter.
