GERANIUM MAVERICK MIX – ALL THE COLOURS! APPLEBLOSSOM, QUICKSILVER, VIOLET PICOTEE ETC. EDIBLE FLOWERS! $2.99

The Maverick series are classic, high-quality geraniums known for being pollinator-friendly and both heat and drought tolerant. When the Maverick series came out, Maverick Appleblossom was wildly popular and then when the other colours arrived, Maverick geraniums blew up into the most desired geraniums ever. With large 12-15 cm flower heads, they are perfect for containers or garden beds. These geraniums thrive in full sun and can grow to a height of 30-35 cm. Their delicate blooms and distinctive foliage are vibrant and eye-catching, offering some of the longest-lasting blooms in your garden. For best results, start them indoors at least 12 weeks before the last spring frost in your area.

Superior plant traits along with its exceptional floral qualities. Vigorous yet compact plants that are generally disease-free, drought-tolerant, and hardy. This makes it a reliable “flower factory,” especially during the warmer months.

Geranium plants are generally very easy to grow and can thrive in dry and neglected conditions such as nature strips, public spaces, or rural gardens. They continue to flower uniformly without the need for maintenance.

Store the seeds in a cool, dry place until ready to plant. Some seeds are coated in a sulphur mix making them a shiny colour . This is just so we can import them. This will not effect the soil.

Soil Preparation: Choose a well-draining planting site with full sun to partial shade. Loosen the soil to a depth of 15 to 20 centimeters and remove any weeds or debris.

Planting Seeds: Sow the geranium seeds directly into the prepared soil in early spring or late autumn. Scatter the seeds evenly over the planting area and lightly press them into the soil surface. Space the seeds about 15 to 30 centimeters apart to allow room for the plants to grow.

Germination: Geranium seeds typically germinate within 2 to 4 weeks under optimal conditions, which include keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Germination can take anywhere from 14 to 90 days at temperatures of 15-20°C. Geranium seeds can be slow to germinate, so be patient and don’t discard your seeds prematurely.

Thinning: Once the geranium seedlings have emerged and developed a few true leaves, thin them to ensure proper spacing. Leave the strongest, healthiest seedlings and remove any weak or overcrowded ones.

Maintenance: Water the young geranium plants regularly, especially during dry periods, to help them establish a strong root system. Remove any weeds or competing vegetation around the plants to reduce competition for nutrients and water.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch, such as shredded bark or compost, around the geranium plants to help retain moisture in the soil and suppress weeds.

Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and remove any damaged or diseased foliage as needed to maintain plant health
