Q.I Take My Geraniums Inside Over Winter Forgetting to Prune Them

It is now almost May and they are leggy and woody. Is it too late to prune them back now for flowers this summer, and if not, what’s the best way to prune them?

Yes, you can prune them now. Cut off about 1/3 to 1/2 of the woody stems on the plant to help get rid of the legginess and encourage new, green growth. They may not look great when you first put them back outside, but they recover amazingly fast. In just a week or two after putting them back outside, you will see them regrow and start looking great again.
