1 packet (10 geranium seeds) (KA7436)
Sow Geraniums indoors from February to late June. Sow seed on the surface of a good quality compost and cover with a light sprinkling of vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 13-15C (55-60F), or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 4-6 weeks.
If no germination has occurred after 4-6 weeks, place in a refrigerator for 3-6 weeks. During this period observe regularly and remove from the fridge if the seeds start to germinate. After 3-6 weeks return to 13-15C (55-60F).
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7cm (3") pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Geranium plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in sun or semi-shade, in any moist, well-drained soil at a distance of 60cm (24") apart.
