08 FebNew Starts

The weather in southern Nevada this week could be called “spring-like”, although technically it is still winter. It is close enough to spring to start some new scented geraniums. This is how I do it:

  • Using a sharp knife or scissors, choose a healthy looking branch tip and cut off about five inches.
  • Strip the leaves from the bottom half of the cutting.
  • Dip the bare end in Rootone + fungicide and shake off excess.
  • Plant the cutting in its own little pot with a good potting soil.
  • Water in and wait!

Lime geranium cutting ready for rooting

Results of my afternoon fun: I started 12 cuttings each of 4 different geraniums – lime, citrosa, chocolate mint, and Dr. Livingstone.

Ready, set, root!
