My geranium is getting leggy – any suggestions?

I HAVE A  BEAUTIFUL Geranium giving vivid red colours but it is getting bolshie.

My questions are these, as in Gardeners’ Question Time.

1. Do I throw it away and say your time is past?

2. Do I get rid of all these stupid extra leaves it is making for no reason at all, thus contraventing Darwinism just so I can get more useless but attractive blooms?

3. Do I try to eat it and pretend the leaves are nasturtium leaves?

No answers required. But the Geranium had best stop getting leggy or I will have it!
