Also called Cranesbill, these are true geraniums, beautiful perennial plants that make great ground covers or bedding plants and are extremely easy to grow. They should be sheared after the initial blooming to encourage new blooms and to keep them compact.

Cultivation:

In mid summer after flowering rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded by shearing it back, this will promote dense growth and encourage better reblooming. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.

Low-moderate fertilisation levels are required use a complete balanced fertiliser. Avoid high ammonium and high nitrogen levels. Very high nitrogen levels will cause shoot stretching and then the shoots fall apart.

The roots are sensitive to wet feet which can cause rotting of roots and poor plant quality. Allow for the plants to dry thoroughly between watering.

Geranium is the official flower for a 4th Wedding Anniversary and the perfect gift!
