Geranium 'Summertime Mixed'

Pelargonium peltatum, Ivy-leaved Geranium, Ivy-leaved Pelargonium

Half-hardy Perennial

The best-trailing geranium from seed, equal in quality to those available as expensive cutting raised types. Attractive single flowers in a delightful five colour mixture, blooming all summer until the first frosts in baskets or containers. Cascading 30-40cm (12-16in).
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.

Ideal For:
patio, greenhouse, conservatory
Flowering Period:
June, July, August, September, October
Sowing Months:
January, February, March
Position:
full sun
    • 1 packet (6 geranium seeds)

Sow mid January to mid March. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays, and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25C (68-77F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 3-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost into hanging baskets or containers spaced 10-15cm (4-6in) apart.

For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun.
