Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
The geranium ‘Octavia Hill’ is named after a prominent social reformer of the Victorian age, the founder of the National Trust. It has large heads of red blooms which stand out and catch your eye no matter where it is planted. They are highly weather resistant too making them easy to care for. The blooms will be around all summer long so long as you deadhead those that are fading to help encourage the growth of new blooms. Perfect in patio pots and borders. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Height Up to 60cm (24in)

Pot up pelargonium plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise geraniums to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days before transplanting them into their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Plant geraniums in a sunny or semi-shaded position, in any light, non-acidic, well drained soil. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.
Feed and water geranium plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of geranium flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
