Rooting Scented Geranium Cuttings

Question from: Alfred C Tedrow
Posted on: April 5, 1998

I wanted to start a Lemon Rose and Mabel Gray scented geranium for my mother from a slip; so far I have been unsuccessful.

Geranium cuttings rot easily. Cut under a node, cut of all but 1-2 leaves and let dry for a few hours before planting in sterile soil, water, drain and put into clean plastic bag. Place in bright but not sunny place. The book "Growing Herbs from Seed, Cutting & Root" (available from Richters; see online catalogue under "G Books) will answer all your questions and more!
