Plant Library: Geranium (Pelargonium)


Geraniums come in many varieties, the most common being the ivy leaf (trailing) and zonal (upright). The variation of colours and the basic care these plants need make them ideal for summer bedding, hanging baskets and containers, perfect for the gardener that don’t have much time but want an instant appeal. A sun lover and drought tolerant, they require watering once a week (though potted plants may need daily watering in hot weather) and fertilise every 6 weeks.
Space plants about 8 – 12 inches apart to allow growth.


“Home Grown” Our geraniums are grown at our wholesale site in Wallington.
