Geraniums are one of the most rewarding groups of plants requiring little fuss and providing endless months of colour.
‘Tiny Monster’ is a fantastic variety with large vivid purple eye-catching blooms flowering all summer long.
Geraniums are a fast-spreading perennial ideal for growing in the shade or full sun.
Tiny monster is the result of crossing G. sanguineum × G. psilostemon and is a laid back plant that requires little fuss and will form a low growing mound of colour in a mixed planted border.
The flowers are star-shaped, provide months of colour, and are ideal for planting at the front of a mixed planted border to line a pathway in the garden.
A great fuss-free plant that is generally pest and disease free too.
Once established in the garden after the first year, they are drought tolerant.
If you are planting a Geranium in the garden, lightly fork over it to loosen the soil. Add in organic matter by digging in some Peat-free John Innes compost. Once mixed, dig a small hole with a spade and add a generous handful of Mycorrhizal fungi to the bottom of the planting hole. Place the Geranium plant and back-fill with soil. Make sure you have not buried the plant lower in the ground than in the pot. After planting, firm the soil around the plant, so the plant's roots are in touch with the garden soil. After planting, water thoroughly and make sure the soil is moist but not too wet for the first two weeks.
Spring: Feed with a seaweed feed to encourage lots of fresh healthy leafy growth in the spring. Protect new emerging foliage from snails and slugs.
Autumn: Cutback foliage in autumn to ground level and the perennial will reappear in the following spring
