Geraniums are super common household plants used for for decoration in pots and in summer landscaping, however the flowers are also edible! Geraniums love the heat, which we have plenty of, but they also like to be kept on the dry side. Treat them as you would your lavender or your sage & thyme plants, by watering just a few times per week and keeping well drained soil dry. The more you harvest your geranium flowers the more flowers your plant will produce. If you don't harvest a flower and it dies, “dead head” it, aka remove the dead flower, which will promote new flowering on the plant.
These plants were not grown organically by us, we purchased them from a conventional nursery.
The colors in order of photos are: two toned pink, baby pink, coral & fuschia.
