Pelargonium in urban decorations

The preferences of pelargonium are different to other ornamental plants. Exsiccation is less harmful for them than overwatering. Watering should always take place in the evening or early in the morning, and twice per 24h during heat. You should be careful and do not water its leaves because it can result with mould.
Place for planters
The best place for urban planters with pelargonium is a sunny, but not windy, square or pavement. It’s worth to get inspired with photos from several Polish cities.
It’s a good idea to adjust the colour of flowers to the surroundings, and in the case of pelargonium it isn’t difficult due to its various types.
