Description

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").

Garden Ready Plants - Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.


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.

How to Grow
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.
More Info

When do geraniums flower?

Geraniums flower between June and October, and regular deadheading will encourage more blooms.

Where should I plant geraniums?

Plant geraniums in non-acidic, well-drained soil in sun or semi-shade. Geraniums thrive in beds, containers and hanging baskets.

What special care do geraniums need?

Geraniums are half-hardy, and while 'Best Red' is a high-performing variety, unless over-wintered in a greenhouse, should, like other geraniums, be treated as an annual in the UK. Keep well-watered in hot, dry periods.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
