    Regal Geraniums are not true Geraniums, but most of you all know that, they are Pelargoniums, but hybrids with a showy, large flower head, and they require a unique treatment compared to other Pelargoniums, for we grow many types and species, ranging from the summer dormant geophytic species all the way up to the common red geranium.   If there are roots then carefully remove the seed and replant the geranium in quality potting soil. The book says that the reason this works is because the seed put out a large amount of rooting hormone and since it comes in contact w/ more of the inside of the plant it has a higher success rate. The cost is also much better.

    Aspirin. One Aspirin diluted in water at a ratio of one tablet (finely ground) to 2 gallons of water may be sprayed on the foliage of the Geraniums every 3 weeks during the growing season to reduce the infestation of various Sucking type Insects.   Ivy geraniums can be purchased at your local garden center in the spring and summer, or you can readily purchase seeds and stock online. Try a package of 10 mixed-color, heat tolerant seeds from Burpee, available on Amazon or directly from : Lorna Kring.
