Geranium cuttings

MrsGreenMrsGreen Posts: 6

i bought some trailing pelargoniums or geraniums for my window boxes 6 years ago and took cuttings and then cuttings off the cuttings each year. They've not done so well this year and I was wondering if you can keep doing this indefinitely or if you should buy new stock occasionally.

thanks a lot

    Thay can pick up viruses over time so best replaced every few years.  However, perhaps the soil in the window boxes is tired and needs replacing?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks Bob 

    no sign of virus and I replace soil every year so maybe the mix was not so good this year. Will take more cuttings for next year and see what happens.
