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.
