How and when do I cut back (prune) my Geranium?

The taller types of Geranium benefit from shearing after the first flush of bloom. Cut all stems to about 3". The plants will put on a new flush of leaves and may reflower. G. sanguinium types can be sheared by taking 3" off the top growth to remove dead heads.
