A handsome British wildflower, and the original plant from which such a lot of garden varieties of hardy Geranium originate. Plants form clumps of leaves and spikes of violet-blue flowers from June to September. The leaves turn an attractive red in autumn. Plants grow to a height of 30-70cm and are good for rockeries, edging and wilder areas of your garden. Geranium pratense grows best in sun to part shade and moist well drained soil. Plants self-seed slightly in the right conditions. Sow in spring or autumn. Sow in a tray of seed compost, keep at 15-20 degrees Celcius and germination takes 2 months, every now and then longer. Germination is erratic, so sow more than you wish to have and don’t discard the seed tray too soon. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are imprinted on the packet. Please visit our shop for more seeds and bulbs. Save on postage – just 85p for delivery of a number of packets of seeds in the United Kingdom and £1.75 by airmail to the remainder of the European Union.
