    Eastern Market Flowers – Geraniums

    Eastern Market Flowers – Big Blooming!  Geraniums are one of my old-fashioned gardening favorites. They fill the surrounding view with a rainbow of bright invigorating color. Standing tall or short in the rear or the front border of the garden. Then, later in the summer, they are in full bloom, they dominate any garden. Large hanging basket or in tall clay pots make great Detroit Mother’s Day Gifts!

    So why plant geraniums in your garden? Beauty, low maintenance, once established, they need little water. Their bright, large colorful  blooms capture the attention of passers-by. With their 1 to 4 feet tall display–often planted in raised large clay pots–makes geraniums the perfect choice for easy on the eye front and backyard scenery.
