Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Did you know that Geraniums are a breeze to propagate?

Just cut a 6" strip of plastic and run a 2" layer of damp sphagnum moss along it. Dip cuttings in rooting hormone and lay them in a line with the leaves above the edge of the plastic. Fold the plastic lengthwise like you are tucking your geraniums in bed then roll the strip of plastic up. Tie the bundle just below the leaves to keep the moisture in and check occasionally to make sure moss stays damp. Then keep an eye out for the roots that will soon peek through the moss.

This also works well with Mums :)
