Grower Tips

-1 to 2 applications of 350 ppm of Florel is the standard rate for Geraniums. First application should be applied 10 to 14 days after transplant and then repeated in 5 to 8 days, if desired. Florel applications should be stopped 6 to 7 weeks before desired sell date. -Geraniums are sensitive to Iron and Magnesium toxicity, soil pH maintained above 6.0 will limit problems. -Geraniums are best grown with moderate moisture, do not keep too damp.
