Removing Dead Geranium Flower Buds
I have researched pruning and pinching back geraniums, but I cannot find advice on how to treat geraniums during the spring, summer, and fall (when it does not appear that pruning is particularly advised) when they are blooming. How am I to treat the dead geranium buds after they have bloomed? Do I simply pinch them off? Then it just leaves a plain branch. Is that correct? Is there a way to encourage more flower buds to grow?
