GERANIUM WALLICHIANUM 'BUXTON'S BLUE'
On a compact slowly spreading carpet appears a non-stop display from June onwards of upward-facing white-eyed sky blue flowers. "A pearl beyond price" (Graham Stuart Thomas), but alas a reluctant seed producer - the elusive seeds are collected individually.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
