Geranium pests

madeline2November 1, 2004

I am overwintering geraniums in a greenhouse - hoping to keep them flowering all winter, to use as cut flowers. (Did you know they last ages in water?). What pests or diseases should I look out for?. Have had problems with vine weevils and fuchsias in the past, so have given up on them. Are geraniums likely to get VW too?.

Madeline, no experience of vine weevil attacking Pelargoniums but be on the lookout for aphids and white fly.

Hi Madeline. I was just in another forum and gave this web address for a site I found. Some helpful information. You'll just have to copy and paste in the address bar. http://ianrpubs.unl.edu/Horticulture/g190.htm
Hope this helps!
