Product Information

Geranium pratense 'Laura' was the star entry in geranium trials at RHS Wisley a few years ago, winning many admirers for its gleaming white, double blooms.

Originally discovered as a chance seedling in a private Cheshire garden, Laura flowers prolifically for several weeks between June and August.

Recommended by the RHS as a 'Perfect for Pollinators' plant, Geranium Laura sets no seed which means that all of its energy goes into blooming, and it doesn't make a nuisance of itself by spreading around the garden.

Robust and vigorous and tolerates a wide range of soils so is really easy to grow, even for the most inexperienced of gardeners, with results guaranteed!

A hardy Geranium (also known as Cranesbill), this popular perennial makes superb ground cover for a perennial border or cottage style garden, where its weather resistant, double white flowers sit proudly above a neat mound of mid-green leaves.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for plating out. Note plants are dormant in winter, with little or no foliage showing.

Top Tips

  • Remove old leaves and faded blooms throughout the growing season to prolong flowering.
  • Plants can be cut to ground level after the first flush of flowers to encourage the production of fresh growth and a new flush of blooms.

Care Information

  • Geraniums are herbaceous perennials and are easy to grow and fuss free. They need minimal maintenance and are also generally pest and disease resistant.
  • Once established, they're drought tolerant and even slugs, snails and rabbits leave them alone!
  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Knock the plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
