Geraniums are plants with rapid development, from which it is possible to draw cuttings that root easily.
Such cuttings should be prepared in autumn and then protected, so as to have plants already well developed in spring, but it is also possible to prepare geranium cuttings in spring, taking them from new plants recently purchased.
We proceed by preparing some small vases, filled with a good universal soil, lightened with washed river sand. These jars are placed in a saucer and watered, in order to moisten the growing substrate well.
Therefore, with the sharp and clean shears, the apices of the geranium branches are removed, 7-10 cm long, choosing those that do not carry flowers.
From these small branches the vegetative apexes are removed, and with the fingers all the leaves are removed in the lower two thirds of the cutting.
At this point with a grafting knife, or even with the shears, we cut the lower part obliquely, so as to obtain a sort of point; this tip will be immersed in the rooting hormone and then inserted into the soil. We keep the cuttings in a place protected from the wind and direct sun, and keep them moist until the twigs begin to sprout
