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.

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.
