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).

Sowing time/depth ,
This stately, blue/purple double geranium with deeply cut leaves flowers profusely during the summer months. A real beauty and much-commented upon when visitors see it in full bloom in the garden.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
This geranium can become very tall and may benefit from light support. If this becomes necessary I simply make a ring of short canes and tie string loosely around the whole plant. It can be prone to botritis, but if this occurs it is likely to be towards the end of the flowering season. The best remedy for this is to cut back flowering stems and flagging foliage when flowering is over. This is in any case a good idea because, like most hardy geranuims, the plant will then produce a mound of fresh foliage to fill the gap in the border during the autumn. Split plants every three years or so.
