Geranium 'Best Red' F1 Hybrid

Pelargonium, Zonal Geranium, Zonal Pelargonium

Half-hardy Perennial

 Customer Rating

This exceptional variety, Geranium F1 'Best Red' outperformed all others in our trials. The uniform, well branched plants become smothered in large, shapely scarlet flowers that retain their form, without shattering as they fade. These vigorous pelargonium plants are guaranteed to create a top performance in beds, borders and containers. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 35cm (14").


Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse.

Pot up pelargonium plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise geranium plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before transplanting them into their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Plant geraniums in a sunny or semi-shaded position, in any light, non-acidic, well drained soil. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.
Feed and water geranium plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of geranium flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

  1. geranium big red

    By Sheila Gove 04-06-2016

    My big red geraniums were bought for a special display at end of June. All the surviving plug plants are healthy with strong roots and almost all have been in full flower for a couple of weeks. Only one problem - all plants are in miniature, only 3 inches high and flowers on 1 inch stems! Quite pretty but not what was ordered. Can I expect them to grow any taller in the next few weeks?

  2. All 36 plugs purchased survived - Very good sucess rate

    By A GRABURN 01-06-2016

    Delighted that all the 36 plugs that I purchased survived. When they arrived the plants were yellowing due to the time it took in the post. So immediately on arrival potted them up in good quality compost and placed in my unheated greenhouse. I am potting up today 1st June 2016 into outside containers. The marking are good on the leaves and looking forward to the flowering.
