GERANIUM MADERENSE

$3.94 / packet

In stock

Description

This truly flamboyant species grows a stout "trunk", which radiates brittle looking stalks, much resembling a small palm tree, the lower ones bending to the ground to provide support beneath the massive trusses of deep pink flowers in early summer. It prefers shelter, or even a big pot, but is worth any trouble to grow for the incredible finale. Please let us know if you have one in flower as we would love to have the seed.

Sowing Advice

Cover with compost or grit 2mm deep in a cool spot if possible, or a cool bright position outside. Please note: Do NOT use any heat, this seed is a very slow, cold/cool germinator, and after sowing will usually not germinate if kept above 14 degrees C. Grow on individual seedlings in 3” pots. Plant out in a well-drained open and sheltered position or in a large pot in a conservatory. A challenge! Please let us know if you have one in flower as we would love to have the seed. Thank you!
