Enjoy Those Geraniums, Downtowners!

A note of appreciation to you plant lovers who showed up to our annual adopt-a-plant at Bowling Green to provide our geraniums with a decent home for the winter. With just a little TLC — and a ton of sunlight — they’ll be a gift that keeps giving for years to come. 

Just In case you misplaced your care card for the perennials, see below for a how-to.

Winter/Spring Care Instructions:

  • Keep moist, not dry or damp.
  • Room humidity at 50% is optimum (without risking mold)
  • Pinch back shoots.
  • Fertilize lightly in spring.
  • Begin to harden off (prepare plants for life outdoors) a few weeks before last frost.

Also, be sure to tag us in photos of your plant babies on the ‘gram at @downtownnyc. We’d love to see how they’re brightening up your day.
