Spring is in the air, and while I'm not doing any gardening right now, as we are in Passover holiday mode, I couldn't wait any longer to share with you this nice discovery: you can root large cuttings from tall geranium plants, I've done it successfully with cuttings that were 12" or even a bit longer! That means that with just a bit of patience, you can fill a pot with cuttings and get the effect of much more mature plants!
And not only that, I actually rooted these cuttings about three months ago, while winter weather was still hanging around. Rooting geranium cuttings does not require rooting hormone, but on account of trying to root large cuttings with tough stems, I did use rooting hormone. Not only that, it's too bad I didn't take before photos as my cuttings had tiny yellow/brownish leaves and looked quite sickly, and look at them now!
Happy container gardening!
ps: For those of you who knew our wonderful friend Tivka Cohen, of blessed memory, who passed away unexpectedly in Northern Israel three months ago, these geranium cuttings were from her garden, and are now living on and hopefully blooming soon in mine!
