I purchased "Summer Showers Mix" Geranium seeds from Burpee (Burpee catalogue page 34). For a 10-inch hanging basket full of flowers, how many plants should be planted per basket?

I would put a maximum of 2 plants per 10" basket. Geraniums are rampant growers and will quickly fill the pot. The seedlings will look small and lonely at first, but it won't be long before they take up the space. Once they're growing vigorously, pinch back the branch tips to keep them compact and bushy. Have fun!
