A few days ago my dogs trampled my beloved ‘Mr. Henry Cox’ geraniums below. I love their unusual coloring– not your typical garish red flowers with lime green leaves bought-at-Home-Depot variety.
After berating the dogs, I collected the broken stems and hit YouTube for a tutorial in geranium propagation. Up popped an English gardener with a great how-to video on the best way to save my plants. The most interesting bit, dip the stems in honey before planting. So I did just that and I’ll let you know if it works.
I shouldn’t be surprised, honey is purported to be nature’s best cure-all.
