Geranium Cuttings

My geranium cutting this winter have been very good, only lost a few, they are now growing well and starting to bud, am I right in taking the buds off, don't intend to put them out for a month or so yet.

    Yes I would remove any flower buds and pinch out the growing top and sideshoots so that you get a stocky bushy plant.

  • Thanks for that, never thought of pinching out sideshots

    Just the tips of the sideshoots ... so they branch out too. Just in case I confused you 😉

    Oh I think I've confused you even more ... what I should’ve said was ‘pinch out the growing tips at the top and of the sideshoots’ 

    I’m beginning to confuse myself 🤷‍♀️
