geraniums from seed

belleville_rose_grNovember 14, 2008

Last year I started my first tray of Annual seeds the first week of January and continued through Feb. I placed them in the GH in March. This year I was thinking of starting my Geraniums earlier like after Thanksgiving. They seemed to be slow growing compared to other annuals. Anyone else tried starting geraniums before

I started mine around Jan. 1 and they did just fine. I don't have a greenhouse, though. Why not start some earlier (eg. Nov-Dec.) and some in January and compare the results? Since you can put them in the greenhouse in early spring, you should have bigger plants to put outside in May.
