I just bought 3 hanging baskets of red and white stripe at Home Depot today and not one of them had a plant care code. Do they need sun or shade?

Geraniums grow in full sunshine and like soils on the dryish side so growing them in hanging baskets, where the potting soil can drain well is perfect for them. Be sure to water when the top of the soil begins to dry and apply enough water so that it freely drains out of the bottom of the planter. Pinch off the flowers when they fade so promote additional flowers. Enjoy your new plants!
