Today's Flowers


tulips09 009

This light pink geranium is one of the most beautiful flowers grown at my friend's garden. It's my favorite color pink. This geranium flower will bloom during spring and will add color to the garden until frost. It is good to plant geraniums where they will receive sunlight for best flower production. Geraniums will grow in partial shade, but flowering is reduced even though foliage is produced. You need to select a site where water drainage is good. Geraniums will grow in almost any type of soil if well aerated and porous. This means that heavy clay soils should be improved by adding organic matter each year. An inch of coarse sphagnum peat moss, partially rotted manure, or compost spaded in when preparing the geranium beds is ideal.
