This is a trouble free, native hardy geranium, ideal for cottage gardens and wild areas. A favourite of bumblebees and bullfinches.
Sow indoors, for surest results, 1.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame, unheated greenhouse or on a warm kitchen windowsill. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-35 days, but germination may be erratic. Further germination may be prompted by covering seed tray with glass or clear plastic and leaving outside to chill for 2-3 weeks before bringing back into a gentle warmth. Transplant seedlings individually as they appear to 8cm pots. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out 30cm apart.
This is native grown seed, not taken from the wild.
