Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Generally trouble free. Geraniums can have issues with Slugs and Powdery Mildew. To defend against bacterial infections, try to maintain good garden hygiene. Space the plants out adequately to allow for good air circulation. For Slugs and Snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire around the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves.

Partial shade/full sun

Geraniums prefer part-shade but can also cope in full sun as well.

Any average, well-drained soil

Geraniums do well in any average, well-drained soil. If you are unsure, you can create a mix of three part garden compost and one part topsoil.

Prune regularly

For best results in terms of flowers, you should regularly check and deadhead the plant (remove old/dead flowers)
