Soil Preperation

To help with moisture retention and fertility the plants will benefit from having some organic matter such as compost or well rotted manure adding to the soil a few weeks before planting. If the soil is a heavy clay add some course grit or sand to the soil to improve drainage. Remove weeds, especially perennial weeds from the area.

Sowing Guide

Early Sowing/Module Sowing

Sow geranium seeds on the surface of damp compost in trays, modules or pots.
Lightly cover the seeds with a fine layer of compost or vermiculite.
Place the newly sown seeds in a propagator or a clear plastic bag and seal.
Once the seeds start to germinate remove the container from the propagator or plastic bag and place in an area with good daylight exposure with a reduced temperature. Keep the young seedlings away from frost.
Once the seedlings are a good size to handle transplant into 7 - 10 cm pots.
Grow on in a warm frost free location.
When the geranium plants are strong, plant out into their final growing position when all risk of frost has passed.
To avoid shock harden off over 7 - 10 days so that the plants are introduced to the outdoor temperatures slowly.

Direct Sowing

For best results start the plants indoors.

Growing On

Once planted out water frequently until the pelargonium (geranium) plants are growing strong.
In spring and early summer apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 14 days. During the flowering season feed with a high potash fertilizer every 10 - 14 days.
This variety is frost tender and is unlikely to survive outdoors over the winter months. Often these plants are treated as annuals with fresh seeds sown every spring.
However if the plants are to be treated as perennials lift and pot the bedding plants in autumn and store the potted plants in a dry, frost free location. Water very sparingly if at all over the winter months. New growth will start up again in mid to late winter. Ensure the plants are positioned in a well lit area as soon as new growth starts up again. Plant out when all risk of frost has passed.


Dead-head regularly to encourage more flowers to bloom.
