How to grow pelargoniums
Pelargoniums should be grown in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. The main advice is to cut them back in late summer and take cuttings to insure against winter losses.
The BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine warns that the flowers can be toxic to cats and dogs, but says that the plants can normally be grown as annual bedding plants although they can be overwintered indoors.
Rich soil is preferred when it comes to caring for pelargoniums. For best results, feed them with a high potash fertiliser during summer and deadhead spent blooms regularly. Gardeners should also bring the plants indoors for winter.
