Pelargonium cuttings

I have been quite successful with my pelargonium cuttings but as they are now starting to produce flower heads should I cut them off to strengthen the plant and save the best until summer ?

    Have you potted them on and pinched them out so they're nice bushy plants, or are they still 'newly rooted cuttings' ?

    Yeah-they're quite bushy now as they were rooted in the Autumn. I've just given them their own pot and a bit more space and they are starting to flower

    I was surprised to see some for sale outside Lidls today,all in flower,it seems a bit too early.

    Unless you want them as houseplants I'd remove flowerbuds for another month or so as you won't be planting them out until after the last frost date in your area

    Great- thanks. That was my gut feeling but I thought I'd check with more experienced gardeners before I did anything 😊
