With their colorful blooms and flashy foliage, Martha Washington geraniums are a garden (and M on the Square) favorite! These gorgeous plants are commonly grown as annuals and tend to bloom in the early spring around Mother's Day (hint hint - perfect gift idea!)
Martha Washington geraniums require 6 hours of sunlight each day - however, in the summer, it's best to keep them out of intense midday sun in order to keep their leaves from burning.
To promote flowering and to keep your plant healthy, we recommend feeding your Martha Washington geranium every two weeks (with fertilizer of course, they aren't fans of avocado toast!) They also prefer moist but not wet soil, therefore, only water the top 2 inches of soil when it feels dry to the touch.
Lastly, when the flowers of your Martha Washington geranium die, don't panic! Simply trim off the flower heads to encourage the plant to produce more blooms and to help prevent disease from the rotting blossoms.
Success! Feel free to
