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").

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.

Flowering Months
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.
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.

Not as good as the Jackpot mixed 2016-07-27

I bought 36 of these as plug plants this year at the same time as the Jackpot mixed. They arrived two weeks later and I thought the plugs looked a bit pot bound but I planted them in pots immediately. By this time the Jackpot were growing away, but the leaves on these looked a bit curly for a while. They are now in their bed in the garden and although they look pretty, they are not so good compared to the Jackpot, they are not so big and have had time by now to catch up. I feel sure it is because the roots had overgrown the plugs when I received them. The colour, though is beautiful. A vibrant red that looks especially beautiful in the evening. Shame they are a bit small.

geranium big red 2016-04-06

My big red geraniums were bought for a special display at end of June. All the surviving plug plants are healthy with strong roots and almost all have been in full flower for a couple of weeks. Only one problem - all plants are in miniature, only 3 inches high and flowers on 1 inch stems! Quite pretty but not what was ordered. Can I expect them to grow any taller in the next few weeks?

All 36 plugs purchased survived - Very good sucess rate 2016-01-06

Delighted that all the 36 plugs that I purchased survived. When they arrived the plants were yellowing due to the time it took in the post. So immediately on arrival potted them up in good quality compost and placed in my unheated greenhouse. I am potting up today 1st June 2016 into outside containers. The marking are good on the leaves and looking forward to the flowering.

T&M replied on 2016-06-02: Thank you very much for your review. I'm really pleased that you have been happy with your purchase and thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.

Is it just me? 2015-04-18

36 mini plugs arrived and were potted on straight away upon opening. Only one third have survived. They were not in great shape when they arrived so goodness knows how they were treated or stored in the tranportation process because all other reviews seem to be glowing. I'll be purchasing the garden ready version instead because the mini plugs are not likely to be ready for the garden this year.

Long lasting flowers 2012-08-28

84 plug plants arrived 2nd May, potted on in small pots, but it didn't take long before they needed potting on again. Once in flower they keep on flowering and are very tolerant of pouring rain and drying out. A good alround plant for pots and tubs and lots of buds still to open.
