The Old Ones are the Best!

There’s an old joke that says ‘the old ones are the best’ – well the same can be said for that old trustworthy plant- the Geranium!

Geraniums have been part of British gardening for a very long time and with new and old varieties, but there are several good reasons for that. Geraniums are easy to grow and extremely reliable for producing long lasting colourful displays. Ideal for containers, window boxes, hanging baskets, flower pouches and borders. The range of colours and ease of growing makes them one of the most popular summer bedding plants.

For the first time Jersey Plants Direct are giving you the opportunity to grow your Geraniums from as little as 7p per plant with free delivery.

There are four Geranium varieties available, each giving you fantastic results.

  • Geranium Tutti Frutti is very drought tolerant, producing bright orange ice, red ice and pink ice flowers. These plants look great in a window box, containers or bedded out as a solid mass in a border.
  • Geranium Fire Queen is an intense red colour and flowers from June to October; it looks stunning in both borders and containers.
  • Geranium Parade comes in the traditional colour collection of red, rose, salmon, pink, white and orange these plants will flower reliably throughout the summer.
  • Geranium Verona Dream did really well for me last year in what was a dry summer, and i was impressed that even though i am tempted by the other varieties, I think I am sticking with this for another year because the results were exceptional.

For a reliable display use Geraniums in all sorts of positions where the sun will shine on them and bring warmth and colour into your garden throughout the summer months.
