Pot up pelargonium plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise geraniums 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 full sun, 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.
Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

I look for interesting foliage because it will usually outlast the flowers. These make an excellent contrast to the green/cream variegations and the flowers stand out well against their dark background

Plugs arrived in very good condition. Potted on and they are now outside. Most of them have really spectacular dark foliage, some though are greener. We are waiting with interest to see how the flowers contrast.

Small plants arrived in very good condition and were potted on immediately. After three weeks they have trebled in size and the dark leaves are colouring up lovely. I am really looking forward to seeing the contrast of the leaf colour to the flowers
