Every year I eagerly await the appearance of Rose Geraniums in the nurseries in June, and every year I grieve when they die in autumn. I never tire of their lovely scent.
Last fall I decided to take a cutting to see if I could keep it alive through the winter. For months it showed no signs of rooting, yet it remained fragrant. Then in January, it finally began to put out roots and new foliage. My dilemma, Gentle Reader, is when to plant it. Will it survive?
All I can do is hope.

Hi Lynn! It looks big enough to plant in a larger container. I would also put some Osmacote in the soil. A friend of mine up here still has her plant from last summer inside her house and she says it’s going crazy. Who know about plants! 🤷 Hope to see you soon, when it’s warmer! Karen R.

Thanks for the tip. I will try it. Is it too soon to pot it outside? It’s still getting down to the high 30s at night.
