Now, here’s that same New Guinea impatiens this summer:
Now cut away just about all of the foliage so that the plant is only a stubby little idea of the plant it once was. Be sure to cut off anything dead.Now plant these new babies into new pots and fill in with dirt. Water them well and fertilize them. (I do these two chores at one time by using a teaspoon of Neptunes in the watering can every time I water.)
(Notice the vine with the tiny white flowers amongst more of the begonia from the same plant as above. There was so much of this vine by spring, I added it to just about every basket I made.)
Okay, maybe not the best shot of my geraniums - but they were the BEST flowers I produced - I divided them twice over the winter and they bloomed almost all winter. What do you really need at the end of a February colder than any on record? YES! BLOOMING GERANIUMS! I had so many by spring I gave them away for mother's day and teacher's presents, plus filled four flower boxes and two pots! All from the one original geranium I started with last October!
