Re: Geraniums

I am assuming you are referring to Pelargoniums, what is commonly referred
to as a Geranium.  Here they sell them as annuals, but they are tender
perennials, that can be overwintered.

I grow Pels from seed every year.  I usually start them around March 1,
sometimes earlier, sometimes later.  I use APS units (Accelerated
Propagation System - styrafoam cells on capillary matting).  They usually
all germ within a week.  When large enough, I pot on to 4 inch, and continue
under lights.  I just planted them outside the other day.  My favorite,
which I've grown these past 2 yrs is the 2003 All America Selection Winner,
Black Magic Rose.  It's growth is uniform, I love the dark zones, and the
flowers are bright.  I've never tried the Scented Geraniums from seed - I
think those are usually cutting-propagated.

I would think if you're growing them indoors, to stay indoors, it's never
too late.
