Geranium Oglevee

Work organic compost into high quality container potting soil that contains ingredients such as peat moss, vermiculite and perlite.
Choose locations getting direct sun for most geraniums.
Feed your geraniums every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer .

Wait to plant geraniums outdoors until frost danger has passed and the soil temperature reaches 60°F.
Choose a site with lots of sunlight, ideally eight hours or better.
With less sun, the plants will bloom sparsely.
Soil should be open and porous to allow for good water drainage, oxygen penetration, and healthy root growth.
A heavy soil will benefit from the incorporation of several inches of peat, compost, or perlite before planting geraniums.
Do not use manure or vermiculite.
Sandy soil will also be measurably improved by the addition of organic matter.
Geraniums will not bloom well if they are over fertilized.
A half rate application of this dry fertilizer can be spread at mid season in July.
Water these dry fertilizers into the soil.
An alternate fertilizer scheme is to use 2 level teaspoons of water soluble fertilizer in 1 gallon of water, applied every three weeks.
Use either dry or water soluble fertilizer methods, but don't use both or you will overfeed the plants.
When you plant, make an irrigation furrow or dike around the plants to serve as a reservoir for summer watering.
Water geraniums thoroughly, but allow the soil to dry between watering to avoid root rot.
Do not allow the plants to wilt, however.
Cycles of wilting, followed by a heavy watering, cause leaf drop and result in poor growth.
Remove faded flowers and dry leaves from the plants.
