How to Grow Scented Geraniums
With scented geraniums for sale at The Grower's Exchange, adding these beautiful and fragrant plants to your garden has never been easier. Here are some valuable tips on how to grow them:
Provide Proper Sunlight
Scented geraniums thrive in full sun or partial shade and require at least six hours of direct sunlight daily for vibrant growth.
Proper Soil and Drainage
For scented geraniums to thrive, it is essential to plant them in well-draining soil that has a neutral pH. You can enhance the quality of the earth by adding organic matter, like compost, which will also aid in better aeration.
If you are planting in pots, using a high-quality potting mix that drains well and choosing containers with drainage holes to avoid waterlogged roots is recommended.
Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid waterlogging. Water at the base to prevent fungal disease, taking care not to wet the leaves. Avoid over-watering to prevent root rot.
Pruning and Shaping
Regular pruning promotes bushy growth and prevents leggy stems. Removing spent flowers encourages continuous blooming and pinching back tips encourages a fuller, more attractive shape for scented geraniums.
During the growing season, feed your scented geraniums with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month. Over-fertilization can result in abundant foliage but fewer flowers, so be cautious not to over-feed.
Protection from Pests
Scented geraniums are typically resistant to pests, but watching for aphids, whiteflies or spider mites is essential. Use organic or natural methods such as insecticidal soap or neem oil to deter pests without harming your plants.
