Every year I have four geranium hanging baskets decorating my front porch. So let me talk about my plant children. Why do I call them children? Well, even though my thumb is far from green these plants are approaching school age. Even though Virginia weather is mild, it’s not exactly mild enough to keep them out all year. So every year in the fall I take them down and put them in my basement by the sliding glass doors.
The geraniums that are hanging as I write are 5 years old. Yes, they last from year to year! How many of you just toss them out at the end of the summer?
I also take in my hibiscus and mandavilla and they are going on 2.
G is for geranium.
