Removing Dead Geranium Flower Buds

Anonymous added on May 13, 2011 | Answered

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?

Yes, you just pinch them off. And by pinching them off, you encourage the plant to bloom more. This article will explain about it:
