Cutting Geranium Roots

Anonymous added on December 11, 2010 | Answered

This is the first time I started to winter bare root geraniums. My question concerns the long geranium roots. Can I cut them shorter, and if I do, will it hurt the plants? Will the plants survive when I put them back into the pot or the ground in spring?

If you really want to, you can trim the roots, but don't do so by more than a third. They can survive a root trimming, but it may stunt growth for next year.
