Sowing Advice-
Sow seeds in good quality compost or seed raising mix at anytime. Lightly cover with fine river sand or compost to their own depth. Place in a propagator or cover with a plastic lid in a warm place. We recommend germinating at 15-20 degrees C keep moist at all times, but do not saturate. This is one of the slow germinating geraniums , so please be patient. Pot on seedlings to harden off and mature before finally planting out in the garden.
