Question: I’d like to take cuttings from my geraniums. Are there any special tricks.

Answer: You root geranium cuttings just as you would cuttings from coleus, begonias or any other fleshy-stemmed annual. The one really important difference, however, is that you must take the cuttings by snapping their stems. Don’t use a knife or shears to cut the stems, or you’ll risk spreading serious stem diseases that can ruin your new plants entirely. Lay the cuttings on newspaper for a couple of hours, to let them dry, before sticking them into the rooting medium.
