My pelargonium (geranium), grown from a cutting, is doing well and now up to 20 inches on 4 healthy stems, but no flowers. What should I do, please?
Thanks to Pamg, Scotkat and Melchisedec for helpful comments!
I'm new to this site so will fill in more details later.



It might just be a bit early and cold! I'm no expert, but I have several pelargoniums with no signs of flowers yet, and I'm sure they're fine.

My older pelargoniums (2/3 years old) in the conservatory are starting to flower now, the older ones outside are looking a bit fed up with the cold/rain, and the little ones that I took as cuttings last year (also in the conservatory) aren't showing any signs of flowers yet, and are actually still quite small.

I find mine do best kept slightly on the dry side and being given tomato feed :)
