@sieveheadsarah thanks Sarah 😀 this was tiny last year but after a chop back in the spring it seems to have exploded, certainly the flowering side 😂 yours will get going in no time 😁

Some people don't cut theirs back but I like mine to have a fuller foliage mound. My mom always cut hers back, rooted some of cuttings, and she had beautiful plants and flowers. Wait until early spring if you're going to trim them up. You can ask Shelley what she does with hers as I don't think she cuts hers back.

@gjones I’d prefer mine like that too. I’ll take your advice and leave it til spring before I cut it back, thanks Katy 😊 sounds like you learned a great deal from your mum ☺️

@richard.spicer.7906 it’s gorgeous and just getting better the more sun it gets. The flowers don’t really go with the foliage though 😂 hoping I can overwinter this and my other 2 pelargoniums 🤞🏻

Yes, me too. I think I was lucky last year. They were outside in polytunnel though, but didn’t water them at all. Brought them into the shed on really cold nights

@richard.spicer.7906 oh so they will make it if they’re protected. That’s great news 😁 is your polytunnel as warm as an unheated greenhouse during the colder months?

@gjones I was amazed at how different they look after the sun they’ve had. The green and brown look great together 😋
