I have started liking this plant.
I would be obliged if you give detailed information about geranium.

My favorite part of the geranium, aside from the colorful blooms is the scented leaves. Citrus galore. Yours look very well cared for.

GERANIUMS: When growing outdoors, they require moist, well-draining soil
Locate your geraniums in an area with at least six to eight hours of sunlight. Thats what suggested by experts, although my geranium dormented during winter in complete shade and that was due to lack of space. Instead of that my geraniums bloomed vigrously during spring for a month or more.
Space plants about 8 to 12 inches apart
watering should be done deeply once the soil begins to feel dry or at least weekly outdoors during winter and daily watering in hot weather
Regular deadheading of spent blooms will also help encourage additional blooming.
When watering plants, it’s best to avoid overhead irrigation, as this can lead to pests or disease issues

Although flowering geranium leaves have v.little pronounced fragrance, but if rubbed have some fragrance,to me that is similar to leaves of mangoes. One geranium plant bought has nice fragrance but has not yet bloomed ,Nursery man claimed it as fragrant Arabian geranium.

"Surij ko Charagh dekhana shaed isi ko kehtay hein", but anyway I am writing down a few tips ,these may be useful for novice gardeners like me. Insufficient light: geraniums needs four to six hours of light during the day, proper placing of pots can ensure this. Insufficient water: Keep the roots of the plant moist during hot n dry weather, but over watering should be avoided, Moist, but never waterlogged, is the golden rule..AS is said over eating is responsible for more deaths than starvation, similarly it is said that 90percent of house plants are killed from over watering. If any of this is not improving the plant health it is always best to renew the plant with fresh cuttings preferably from the top (if any of that is left) .

August n September are the recommended period for taking cuttings.

I was surprised to know that geraniums we call are actually pelargoniums
