Description
Plant swathes of this gorgeous mauve-pink geranium in your cottage garden borders and enjoy dreamy summer skies all summer long. The double blooms of Geranium pratense 'Summer Skies' may look delicate but this hardy herbaceous perennial is tough and undemanding. Unlike its single flowered relations, this meadow cranesbill does not self seed, so the flowers last even longer. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").


1 bare root geranium plant (10095)
3 bare root geranium plants (KC2097)

How to Grow
Plant Geranium 'Summer Skies' in any well drained soil, in sun or semi-shade. Position the bareroot so that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Water well to settle the soil around the roots.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.

More Info
Water hardy geranium plants regularly throughout summer until fully established. Remove old foliage and faded flower stems throughout the growing season to promote continuous production of fresh growth. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of hardy geraniums in spring to maintain their vigour.
