    Hello,

    A couple of days ago, I visited a friend's garden and he had quite the collection of hardy geraniums, and offered some to me.

    They appeared in a mass planting, and looked like they haven't been cut or tended to for some time. I saw him grab some of the green areas that just started to sprout, but none of the pieces seemed to have any roots.

    Is there anything I can do with these pieces? To me they almost appear to have green at both ends of a 12 inch piece and no roots, at least that I can see anyway.

    Can I cut them to size and replant? Or what should I do with them? I placed them temporarily into some soil for protection but need to move them into a more permanent spot once I know what to do. Never had geraniums before. hehe

    One is extremely scented, but I wouldn't say it's pleasant, but a rather powerful scent. Any idea on what that type it is?

    Thanks,
    Kara

    Its probably Geranium macrorrhizum it would have been much better to have had a piece with some root.....replanting the pieces you have in the ground is worth a try.

    Water frequently and provide shade until rooted.
