Product Information

Hardy Geraniums, or 'Cranesbills' as they are commonly known, are one of the easiest and best garden performers for low maintenance, flowering displays and versatility to growing conditions. Everyone should find space for them!

Not to be confused with bedding Geraniums, more correctly called Pelargoniums, these really are one of the most versatile plants - sun or shade, wet or dry, pots or garden, they just keep doing their thing year after year.

From their dormant state over-winter, in spring they produce neat and tidy small domes of leaves, which are smothered in flowers in Summer. A mecca for bees, they will be buzzing with activity on sunny days. In Autumn, the leaves often turn red orange too. A simple trim off of old growth in Autumn is all they need - what could be easier.

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

  • 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.
