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).
|Geranium pratense Ex. striatum a.k.a. 'Splish Splash'|
|Geranium 'Splish Splash'|
|As the name suggests, the petals of this geranium have splishes and splashes of blue and white. Please note that although the seeds offered have been collected only from such plants, other G. pratense are grown in the garden, so there is the possibility of some cross-fertilisation.|
|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.|
