PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Light preference Sun/part shade
Soil preference Any reasonable soil
Sowing time/depth Autumn, Spring, 0.25in/6mm
An extremely pretty form of geranium oxonianum - I am almost certain the variety is as named. The large flowers are mid-pink, sligtly toothed at the margins and with very striking deep-purple veining. The leaves are a rich, bright green, often with small, chocolate-coloured spots at their base. An unfussy plant that flowers enthusiastically throughout the summer and into early autumn. Mine have taken up residence in the gravel next to the bed where they were originally planted and love it there!

NOTE: I cannot guarantee that seeds, when offered, will come true; although I would expect plants grown from them to be similar to those described, there may be some variation in petal width and degree of veining.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in very moist, but not water-logged, modules or small pots, .25in/6mm deep in spring or autumn. A little heat may aid germination, which should occur from about 10 days, but do not overheat (maximum 70F/20C) as this may deter germination. Grow seedlings on and in the case of autumn sowings, keep in a cold frame or sheltered spot during the winter, planting out in spring.
