Geraniums are sun worshippers so plant them where they will receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun a day. Relatively drought resistant, geraniums still prefer a drink whenever the soil dries out. But, don't over water or the plants will rot at the base. Remove the faded flowers as they appear to keep the plant tidy and to encourage more bloom. If you are growing geraniums in pots, plant them in a commercial potting soil mix.
