Image of Geranium

Cheerful flowering perennials often quite hardy and particularly suitable for pots and planters. Geraniums make popular bedding plants in the garden, but they’re also commonly grown indoors or outside in hanging baskets. Growing geranium plants is easy as long as you can give them what they need.
