Q.Blooms of Pelargoniums and Geraniums

Anonymous added on May 3, 2014 | Answered

I live in Spain and currently have a riot of blooms on Pelargoniums and Geraniums, both plants growing taller and taller to outshine one another. If I were to cut them back now, will they bloom again this year?

Cutting them back now may not result in new blooms this season, but if the plants are getting leggy, you may need to prune or pinch them back. This will not hurt the plants. It could actually surprise you with additional blooms since it's still early in the season.
