Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Geum seeds can be sown directly into the garden when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is passed. Soil temperature (not air temperature) should be warmer than 20°C (68°F) for seeds to germinate. Planting at a lower temperature will delay germination. Choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Space seeds and plant to the depth indicated below. Press seeds into the soil to ensure good contact and cover with 1.5 mm (1/16") of soil. After planting, water the seeds with a gentle mist or shower. A hard spray can wash soil away, dislodge seeds and clump them together. It is critical to keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy during germination. Do not let the soil dry out, as young plants have underdeveloped roots and can quickly dehydrate, particularly in windy conditions. When your seedlings reach a height of a few centimetres (inches) and have developed 2 or 3 pairs of leaves, it is important to thin them out, according to the plant spacing indicated below to provide good air circulation and room to grow.

    For earlier blooms, seeds can be started indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost in your area. Follow the seed depth and spacing guidelines indicated below. Once all danger of frost has passed, seedlings should be hardened off before planting in their growing location. Seedlings should be transplanted according to the plant spacing directions below. Regularly monitor your plants and ensure that the soil remains moist, while they establish themselves in their new environment.

  • Planting Depth: 1.5 mm (1/16")

  • Plant Spread: 25-30 cm (10-12")
Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Seeds will germinate better if they have been cold-stratified before planting. Cold-stratification is the process of exposing seeds to cold and moist conditions to break dormancy and increase germination rates. Soak seeds for 1-2 hours in room temperature water. Moisten a paper towel (not soaking wet), and spread seeds out in a single layer on the paper towel. Wrap a dry paper towel around the damp paper towel to help keep things moist but not too wet (which could become mouldy). Place in a plastic bag and seal. Place the bag in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before planting. If seedlings start to sprout in the bag in the refrigerator, remove them immediately and plant them according to normal seed starting indoors methods.
  • Regularly removing spent flowers, known as deadheading will keep the plant tidy and may reward you with more blooms.
  • Harvest flowers when the flower is open. Click here to learn more about harvesting flowers.
  • Plants benefit from being divided every 2-3 years.
