“Gardeners live in beautiful places, because they make them so.”

~Joseph Joubert~

Feature Plant:

Geranium!

Classic colours & Memorable Scent! 

Pelargoniums or widely known as Geraniums are one of the easiest flowers to grow with a tolerance for full sun positions in the garden and can thrive on very little water supply.

They have developed so much from their South African heritage and today’s varieties come with single flowers and double flowers too! Used for their perfume, their essential oil, as medicine and for their ability to brighten up gardens with their range of pinkish, reddish white hues, geraniums are popular all over the world!

Prune them back when they start to get straggly and give them a good feed with an organic fertiliser like our Super Booster. Keep an eye out for all the different varieties – you may even find the rose or chocolate scented ones!

Top Tip: For continual blooms, deadhead the old flowers as they change to brown!

Super Chicken’s Top Tips!

  • Plant Cucumbers with Sunflowers – your cucumber crop will be sweeter and will use the tall stalks of sunflowers as a natural trellis!
  • Be sure to feed some super booster to all your azaleas, gardenias, magnolias, camellias & rhododendrons!
  • Time to give all your shrubs a tidy up with a good prune back!
  • Good time to plant sweet peas while it is still a bit warm!
