It’s Time to Plant the Geraniums

Pillows and Geraniums 015

Guess what I am doing today?  I drove out to A&A Plants in Brown Summit,NC  (a long drive in the country but well worth the miles) and picked up ten bright and gorgeous red Geranium plants.  There is no other place that I have found that grows such huge and healthy plants for the money.  And I stopped earlier today to get my favorite dirt,  Miracle Gro Potting Mix.  My Geraniums are virtually guaranteed to be beautiful this year!!

So while our son is cutting the grass tonight, I am going to be planting my pots.  You will be the first to see them when I get them done….it might take a few days. :)

Hi Lisa,
Your geraniums are so pretty and yes, it's time to plant them.
They have been really hard to find here on the coast of NC. The ones I've seen are scraggly.
Be sure and show us after you get them potted.

hugs

Those geraniums are gorgeous! I'm so ready for planting the annuals, but I still have a bit more work to do in the beds. I did break down a couple weeks ago and bought a real pretty salmon colored hanging geranium for my shepherds hook by the pond.

Don't ya just love the hardiness of geraniums. Have fun planting.

Beautiful geraniums, Lisa. I've planted those, this week, too...among other things.

Love the geraniums. I found some that are like a trailing species. Very hard to find. They look so pretty in flower boxes. Can't wait to see yours all done up!

I tagged you to play a game on my blog.

I've planted them in my pots this year, I've never liked the smell much but they are the most gorgeous flowers to see in the garden. I've wondered about trying to grow some for next year?

Those look big and healthy! I always plant geraniums in the front but haven't bought any yet.

We have another few weeks before it's time. Can't wait to see them potted!

I love geraniums! I planted some last weekend. They grow really good for me but I will see how they do up here. Many plants are not out yet up here. My neighbor told me that it is about 2 months difference from the south:(

Best kind of potting soil to use! I won't use anything else. Love those purdy Geraniums! Stop by and see what I've done with my flowers...Robyn
