Safe time to put geraniums out.

Asked April 1, 2019, 5:31 PM EDT

I have geraniums saved from last year on a back porch - no heat - only sunshine to heat it. Is it safe to put these geraniums outside on the deck when they say the temperatures will be 40 or over? I need to transplant, etc. and really want to get started.

It is too cold to move the geraniums outdoors now. You can move the geraniums outside after all danger of frost is past. In Central MD this is usually around the second week of May. Here is some information on frost dates in your area http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/spring-frostfreeze-dates-maryland

You can grow them indoors until then.
