|I purchased several geraniums that all had lovely full color flowers. They each have loss their flowers, yet I see a neighbors geranium that still has full colorful blooms. My flowers are in containers, how can I get them to have longer lasting blooms.

|You can encourage lots of flowers on your geraniums if you pinch off the spent flowers and if you pinch out the stem tips on a regular basis. Pinching back the stem tips will force new (flowering) growth towards the center of the plant. I'm sure yours will bloom again in a few weeks. Enjoy!
