Deadhead Your Geraniums

To encourage large, healthy blooming throughout the season be sure you are deadheading your plants. If your plant has too many deadheads it will alert the plant that the growing season has finished.

When you start to see brown or dead flowers, deadheading will encourage new, full blooms to grow. To deadhead, your plants find the node closest to the stem and clip it. This will encourage new growth in a few, short days.
