Geranium are found in many habitats across the globe. The common name comes from the fruit that is supposed to look like the head and bill of a Crane. Herbaceous Geraniums are undoubtedly one of the most widely cultivated of all garden plants and are very fragrant traditional cottage garden plants. Geranium cantabrigiense Hartz is a hybrid, bred at Cambridge University Botanic Garden around 1974. It forms a dense mat of dark green, very fragrant leaves. Large, white, single flowers, with a slight pink flush, are produced from May to July and are held well above the foliage. All in all an excellent plant for ground cover or trailing over edges. Dead head for best flower production. Excellent in a mixed planting, or in groups and can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost and ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmocote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year.
