Pot up gerbera plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into their final positions. Plant gerberas outdoors in fertile, well drained soil in sheltered, sunny borders. When growing gerbera in patio containers, use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2.
Feed and water gerbera regularly throughout the growing season. In milder parts of the UK, these Gerbera are hardy outdoors, if grown in a sheltered position and provided with winter protection during particularly cold periods. In particularly cold areas it is preferable to grow gerbera plants in containers that can be moved to a frost free position during winter.

  1. Definitely not Hardy too!

    By Bryan Macefield 02-06-2016

    These plants were amazing when I got them last year, giving a really good display and I was looking forward to seeing them again this year. However to date they appear dead (I even have bedding dahlia's coming back) which shows how mild it has been - very disappointing for a hardy plant, are you sure you didn't send bedding plants!

  2. Definitely NOT Hardy!

    By Simon Crowhurst 13-05-2016

    If you can get these to grow, they are great. However, as with most T and M plants, they are supplied very small and take a few years to get fully established. Once you've established them though, you will be rewarded with an endless summer full of large Gerbera flowers (one of ours already has flowers this year and it's only mid May. My main concern with these is they are just NOT hardy in the UK. We've bought 27 of these plants over the past years and only 8 have survived to this year - and that's with living in one of the warmer parts of the country, no harsh winters, being planted in sheltered borders or pots and given winter protection. I really can't recommend these as hardy garden plants.
