Answer: Geraniums tend to get leggy if they're not pinched back regularly, or if they're getting inadequate light. You can renovate your plant by cutting back all of the stringy stems, then pinching out the tips of the new stems after they've grown a few inches. Scented geraniums are prone to leggyness, so regular pinching is especially important with them. An added bonus to this procedure is that you can root the cuttings to start new plants.
