How To Encourage New Geranium Growth From Soil

Question From: Thornton, California, United States
Q: over the years, my beloved Martha Washington all but died out leaving one long stem about 2 feet long. It still produces a lovely flower at the tip. It is the last of its kind. How can I encourage new growth from the soil?

A: Your best bet is to take cutting from the single stem and root them. The plant may just be getting old. Google how to propagate geraniums for directions. Good Luck Nancy
