Fall Fertilizing Garden Plants #773300

Asked September 27, 2021, 4:38 PM EDT

My geraniums are always fabulous in the fall and last until really cold weather arrives. Should I be fertilizing them this time of year?

Expert Response

Hi,

I wouldn’t fertilize now; the geraniums are winding down.

You might consider overwintering inside. They look terrible early in the season, but rebound quickly as the weather warms up: https://extension.umn.edu/flowers/growing-geraniums-annual-flowers-minnesota#fertilizing-1597911
