I planted 4 Geraniums in a large pot that had had Nasturtiums in it last year. things were great until the Nasturtiums took over. is they any way they can both survive or do I need to remove 1 or the other. and if so can I transplant the Nasturtiums?

Welcome!

I don't think you will have a problem. The Nasturtiums will grow over the pot and down and the Geraniums will grow tall. They can share.

I agree with Daisy, you absolutely can keep that pot going as is. It will be beautiful once they start to bloom. Nasturtiums really don't transplant well so I wouldn't advise that anyway.

Just be sure to feed that planter generously. With all those plants in it, the nutrients will get eaten up pretty fast. Keep an eye on it for water, too as the weather gets warmer.
