Leggy Geraniums

millefleurs(Z 7 - Md)July 9, 2005

My hanging baskets of geraniums are really "leggy". Is there anything I can do to promote a fuller, bushy plant? Japanese beetles have become a problem within the last two days! What should I use to kill them? Thanks very much!

Pinch them! Cut them back.
