Appleblossom  is a Zonal Geranium plant producing pale pink/white double flowers. The leaves are green with a darker ‘ring or zone’ on them (the darker the flower colour, the darker the zone). It is a strong grower and will produce a bushy upright plant up to 50cm high, and will look good in patio tubs or the garden.  In tubs it can either be mixed with other plants or 3 plants could be planted together in a 30cm tub to give the appearance of one large plant.

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 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.
