Not sure what kind of flowering plants to give as a gift? It’s hard to go wrong with Geraniums. They bloom best with 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight, but if they can get 6 to 8 they’ll do well too!
Allow soil to dry to some extent between waterings, then water thoroughly.
To encourage blooming, deadhead spent flowers regularly.
To promote bushiness and curtail legginess, pinch back the stems.
Use a well-draining potting mixture when planting in containers. Geraniums do not like to sit in soggy, compacted soil.
For maximum bloom, place the plants in an area where they will get 4-6 hours of sunlight.
