Please help ... Will this geranium survive?
Just planted geraniums for the first time - am very ambivalent about them. The gardeners were supposed to plant 4 or 6 but planted 9 instead.
In trying to restructure the plantings in one of my beds, I was a bit rough with moving one and the plant "separated" from its roots - really, much to my surprise, I was left holding the plant while the base and roots - which were exposed - were left on the ground. I don't like to kill plants - especially perfectly healthy ones - so feel a bit guilty (although, once again, I really don't care for geraniums).
I did bury the roots in the ground and stuck the plant in as well just in case the blasted thing sets roots here and there and can take off again.
Can you help me determine if the plant will live? If not, I'll have to rejigger all the other plantings so as not to have this unnatural spacing.
