Pastel Salmon-Colored Geraniums


Two geraniums purchased in the spring have grown and become beautiful big plants.

  They adorn both sides of a front step in front of the house.


Originally, I planned to buy pink but the pastel salmon color was so pretty that I caved.



Now that the nights are getting chilly and cold days will soon follow, it's time to start thinking about bringing these lovely plants inside.

I want to see if they will winter over and last until next spring.

HAVE YOU EVER BROUGHT GERANIUMS INSIDE? IF YES, PLEASE TELL US HOW  THEY CAN BE KEPT ALIVE AND WELL.

They are so beautiful. And the leaves so green. Soon I will be able to buy them again for outdoors, but when it is hot and dusty, they just don't survive. I've never tried bringing them indoors, though I know lots of folks do. Good luck! Tammy

Hi Susan.
There is something about the simlicity of geraniums that I just love!!!
Yours are beautiful!
I am sure you'll get them to last over the winter...my mother in law does that.
Thank you also for your visit...your posts have often encouraged and inspired me!

Mine are in my yard and I keep them there all year as I do not have very cold temps. Mine are pink..yours are very pretty too. Salmon colored is a favorite of mine.

The salmon colored geraniums are beautiful, especially against the brickwork. The mini pumpkins are a nice fall touch.

I had a red geranium that wintered over in the house. I kept it in an eastern window so that it got morning sun. All winter it had very green leaves but no flowers. Once the days got longer I noticed little buds forming and by summer it was again full of red blossoms. You should definitely try to bring the salmon colored ones in for the winter. You will probably be pleasantly surprised at how they flourish.

I like the color of the ones you bought - a little different - you know.

I have planted geraniums for years. They are standing in sunny window. They like be watering often. After blooming, their leaves are decoration. When we are giving conditioner for flowers we can expect they will bloom again in the winter. We can get the inoculation from overgrown plants. Due to that you will have more geraniums next year. So set them bravely in sunny window and ask me again if you will be in need. I'll help you willingly. Greetings :)
