Geraniums: How to grow

Geraniums are a classic gardener’s favourite and are easy to grow from seed.  Popular varieties include ‘Garden Flares’ with large flower heads and a long flowering period and ‘Earlibird Mix’ for masses of blooms all summer long.  

Sow geranium seeds under cover January to March in Gro-Sure Seed & Cutting Compost.

Harden off throughout May and plant out once all risk of frost has passed.

Plant out in well-drained soil in a sunny or lightly shaded spot. Incorporate organic matter such as Westland Soil Conditioner first to improve soil structure and boost nutrient levels. 

Feed throughout the season with Gro-Sure All Purpose Plant Food

Dead head regularly to encourage prolonged flowering.
