Evka is a trailing Geranium plant grown for its variegated ivy leaves.  It is ideal for adding interest to hanging baskets and window boxes.  To fill a 12" or 30cm hanging basket you will need 5 trailing Geranium plugs.

These Pelargonium plugs will need potting on into a 9 or 10cm pot and growing on in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill.  They can also be planted straight into hanging baskets as long as they are kept in the warm.  They need to be kept at a minimum of 7 degrees celsius.  Be careful not to overwater your Geranium plug plants.  Keeping your plugs quite dry in the early stages of growing can help to encourage root growth.  This is particularly important with Geranium plugs as Geraniums can tolerate dry conditions and do not like to be overwatered!  However it is very important not to let them dry out completely!  The compost should be kept moist, not waterlogged, but also not dry and dusty. 

Once the risk of frost has passed your Geraniums can be planted in the garden.  Geraniums prefer a position in full sun.  Feed them weekly when they are in flower with a good quality multipurpose feed.  Water regularly to prevent them from drying out.  Watering is best done in the morning or evening instead of when the sun is at its strongest, to prevent the leaves from being scorched.  Remove faded flowers to keep your displays looking at their best.
