The Q&A Archives: Geranium In Winter

Question: My geranium's leaves are drying and falling out what can I do about it. It is my very first one don't know what to do. Can you help me? (it is indoor plant in a pot hanging in the bathroom ).

Answer: You can treat geraniums as houseplants over the winter, providing you have a sunny window. They require lots of sun, and weekly watering. If your plant is dropping leaves it's either not getting enough sunshine, or it's being overwatered. Find a sunnier site and feel free to cut them back to remove old stems. They'll send out new, tender growth and blooms, as soon as the environment suits them.
