Geranium Bare Roots

  • Versatile Perennials: Bare root geraniums, also known as Cranesbill geraniums, are versatile perennials that come in a wide range of varieties, colours, and sizes. They can be used in various garden settings, including borders, rock gardens, containers, and even as ground cover.
     
  • Long Flowering Season: Geraniums are known for their long flowering season, with some varieties producing flowers from spring through to autumn. This extended blooming period provides continuous colour and beauty in the garden, attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
     
  • Low Maintenance: Once established, bare root geraniums require minimal maintenance. They are generally drought-tolerant and can adapt to different soil conditions. Regular deadheading of spent flowers can help promote more blooms and keep the plants looking tidy.
     
  • Propagation: Bare root geraniums can be propagated through division or cuttings. Dividing mature plants every few years helps rejuvenate them and allows you to expand your geranium collection. Taking stem cuttings in spring or early summer is another method to create new plants.
     
  • Winter Hardiness: Many bare root geranium varieties are hardy perennials, meaning they can withstand winter cold and come back year after year. However, some varieties may be more tender and may require protection or winter mulching in colder regions.
     
  • Aromatic Foliage: Geranium leaves often have a pleasant fragrance, especially when crushed or brushed against. Some varieties have aromatic foliage with scents ranging from citrusy to spicy or minty. This adds another sensory dimension to their appeal in the garden.
     
  • Natural Pest Repellent: Geraniums contain natural compounds that act as insect repellents. They are known to deter certain pests, such as mosquitoes, Japanese beetles, and cabbage worms, making them a useful addition to gardens as a natural pest control measure.
     
  • Medicinal Uses: Geraniums have a long history of medicinal uses in traditional herbal medicine. They were used for treating various ailments, including digestive issues, wounds, and skin conditions. While modern scientific research is limited, some people still use geraniums for their potential health benefits.
