Product Information

A superb geranium for any border, 'Plenum' produces the most beautiful violet, double, ruffled flowers set on a backdrop of deep-green foliage - a real top perennial Geranium

What's really special about 'Plenum', also known as 'Birch's Double', is that the glossy green foliage almost magically changes colour in the autumn to a fiery orange-red - so not only do you get wonderful flowers from June, but foliage interest too.

It's low growing, reaching a height of about 25cm so is ideal for use as groundcover and also perfect for pots and containers in smaller spaces. It is easy to manage, tolerating most soils and with a hard cut back after a first flush of flowers in June and July, you'll likely get a second round well into autumn.

Top Tips

Snip off faded flowers at the base or shear the tops of the plants back to new growth in order to stimulate reblooming and freshen the foliage.

Care Information

  • Prefers compost-enriched soil that stays moist. If planting straight out, keep well-watered until established.
  • 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.
  • Doesn’t normally need dividing but plants can be split in spring or autumn if needed.
  • A haircut with shears after flowering is all the pruning that is required.
