These gorgeous annual-flowering bedding plants naturally produce lots of branches and flower stalks, which means you get a summer-long period of fantastic flower power on compact plants.

Stunning in flowerbeds, Horizon geraniums aren’t shy of flowering. Each plant puts out lots and lots of branches. The more branches, the more flowering stems.
Consider growing these lovely annual geraniums near your herbs and vegetables. They’ll add colour to your kitchen garden and bring in those pretty pollinating insects which add animation as well as do the sterling job of pollinating fruiting vegetables like beans and peas. Given lots of sun, these geraniums will reward you handsomely.
We give you 48 plants which is enough to plant in the centre of up 12 pots and /or hanging baskets. Great planted in the front of sunny beds or around crops to bring instant visual impact and summer cheer.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
How your plants arrive
Each of your flowers arrives to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.
Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic wallet contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check all your 48 plants are there in the plastic wallet, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your flower plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.
You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
