These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce. Plant which prefers shady spots, avoid exposing it to direct solar rays, especially during the hottest hours of the day.We suggest growing the The Geranium phaeum outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
Feed Geranium phaeum
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.
Care Geranium phaeum
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Geranium phaeum is a perennial herb plant. The Geranium phaeum is large in size and 75 cm in height; in the spring it assumes a purple colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Irrigation Geranium phaeum
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Adversity Geranium phaeum
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Substrate Geranium phaeum
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
