Geranium Burgundy Bicolour (Trailing)

Geraniums are a firm favourite amongst our customers and many other gardeners. They are a versatile, long lasting bedding plant and thrive in our British climate.

Jersey Plants Direct have been supplying Geraniums for many years and our expert nursery staff work hard to grow a diverse selection of Geranium plugs to a high standard. We deliver quality bedding plants direct to our customer’s door in three sizes – Plug Plants, Ready Plants, Super Ready Plants and Jumbo Ready Plants. We offer a variety of Geraniums in all of these sizes, so you can find the perfect Geranium for you.

Geraniums are brilliant for British gardens, summer weather is inconsistent but a Geranium’s beautiful blooms will be something you can count on in your garden. Geraniums will flourish from May to the first signs of frost. Geraniums are ideal if your garden falls victim to rabbits, slugs, snails and deer regularly. They will attract bees with their colourful blooms, helping the wildlife in your local area.

“You know that comment about an old joke – ‘the old ones are the best’ -  well the same can be said of that old trustworthy plant, the Geranium.” – Christine Walkden, former BBC’s Gardener’s World presenter.

Often Geraniums can prove to be the perfect plant for a problem area where many other plants will suffer. If you don’t have the perfect soil, light or moisture conditions in your garden for growing other bedding plants, try Geraniums and you may be surprised at how much they can tolerate and still look fantastic.

Geranium Tutti Frutti

Geraniums may be an old fashioned favourite used in formal displays, but with new varieties and a little more imagination you can create stunning informal beds, containers and hanging baskets using both upright and trailing Geraniums.

With most geraniums, if you cut all the foliage and seed heads down to ground level after flowering they will generally repay you with more flowers and refreshed mounds of foliage. Most have neat mounds of foliage during winter too.

This spring we have a fantastic collection of Geraniums on offer…

Our best selling Geranium Fire Queen is an intense red, flowering from June through until October. It looks stunning in borders or in containers of all sorts. It is large-flowering making it ideal for that splash of colour needed right through the summer.

Geranium Tutti Frutti is a very drought-tolerant collection producing plants with bright orange ice, red ice and pink ice flowers making compact plants 30 cm high with a spread of 30cm. These plants look great in a window box or in containers and when bedded out as a solid mass in a border their colours will take your breath away.
