When to take Pelargonium cuttings
Whilst I know you can take these at any time, I want to know when to take them so that I only have a small plant to overwinter indoors. I got a pretty small plant mailorder in March and it is now a wonderful sized plant on my table outside. My problem is having no greenhouse and not much room indoors. So do these plants kind of go dormant indoors through the winter or do they keep growing and therefore I want to leave taking cuttings until September? This year I have taken osteospermum cuttings now so that I have a reasonable sized plant to overwinter indoors because the past few years it has taken the whole summer for the plant to grow big enough to finally give me some flowers in September!! However, overwintered small Penstemon cuttings on the other hand have grown quite quickly into lovely sized plants. Live and learn. I did invest in a small plastic growhouse last winter but both covers ripped so I am concentrating on finding room indoors for the few plants I need each year.
