These lovely bright blooms sit above slender, swaying stems, giving an informal, airy look. This free-flowering geum is the perfect choice for growing in a sunny border where it will produce a fabulous display of flowers continuously for months during summer.

Plant Care & Advice

Geum 'Mrs Bradshaw' loves a sunny spot and looks great in a border with other cottage-garden plants. This resilient plant can tolerate all kinds of conditions, from exposed or coastal sites, to enclosed sunny positions.

Happy in most soils, however it prefers good drainage. If your soil is heavy, place some grit or sand in the base of the planting hole.

Water well when first planted and continue to water regularly throughout the first summer. Once established, this plant will only require watering when conditions are particularly hot and dry.

It's a good idea to feed your plant with a liquid fertilser occasionally over the growing season to maximise flowering and overall health, although it isn't essential.

During the flowering season, deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers. Remove old flowering stems entirely in late summer or autumn by snipping them off at the base.
