Product Information

These geraniums are low growing, clump-forming perennials with striking flowers and gorgeous contrasting, dark foliage, the perfect way to bring colour and dramatic effect to your garden.

Because of their compact nature they're superb as groundcover, or as specimen plants in a border or container on your patio, decking or balcony where their deeply divided leaves compliment perfectly the colourful saucer-shaped flowers.

Easy to grow, and low maintenance, these hardy geraniums prefer moist but well-drained soil in sun or light shade and are drought resistant once established so they're perfect for gardeners wanting to reduce their time spent watering!

Fully winter hardy, Geranium 'Orkney Cherry' and Geranium 'Black Beauty' easily get through the UK winter, breaking into fresh growth as the weather warms in spring.

Supplied as a collection of 6 plug plants (3 of each variety) ready for potting up and growing on.

Geranium 'Orkney Cherry' delights all who see it with stunning, contrasting colours - the flowers are bright, bubblegum pink, and the leaves a dark green with bronze tones. The delicate blooms fade as they age to a soft pink, meaning that there will also be a multitude of colours on the plant over the season.

Geranium pratense 'Black Beauty' is a compact, clump-forming perennial with striking lilac-blue flowers and gorgeous dark, purple-black leaves which are highlighted with red-blushed stems. H50cm x W50cm. Flowers June - August.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Hardy Geraniums:

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you canít do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but theyíll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They donít like to be left in standing water.
  • When plants are large enough and have filled their pots, they can be planted out in a sunny spot in moist, humus-rich soil.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.

Aftercare Advice for your hardy geranium:

  • Lift and divide large clumps in spring.


Pruning Advice for Meadow Cranesbill:

  • Pruning is generally unnecessary, although dead head faded blooms to promote more flowers.
  • Plants can be cut back after the first flush of flowers to encourage further blooming.
