My geranium is doing weird things. Since this is my first geranium I suppose it's normal for me to be surprised by this or that. It's just that with all the gardening books on the market, no one writes about how to deal with the important growing stages of the geranium. I am a first time geranium potter, and don't know how to handle this. You see, over the last week my geranium has slowly began to change color. It's not drying up, not at all, it's leaves are just turning this beautiful red and orange.
I am charmed on one hand, and slightly worried on the other. Am I killing it? Is this going to to do irrevocable damage to my geraniums psyche? Will he blame me for things all his life, because I neglected to do the correct thing in this stage of his development? Or do I just have a gifted and artistic geranium that needs understanding, no fences. Was he really meant to be planted in a real garden instead of just a pot? Nature vs. Nurture? Sigh. His blooms are doing quite well, the coloring is normal for fall, and I know that dreadnought left some comment to me about how to winterize geraniums....I think I will go hunt it up
Until then, Happy Autumning.
