A good, early- flowering, strong blue Geranium

Geranium Sabani Blue is a good, strong variety of Geranium. Large, vivid blue flowers and one of the first to flower. The only downside is it doesn't tend to re-flower but if you want an early shot of colour it's worth having. 9cm plants are very small but once established it will form large clumps

Geraniums are such good plants and this one is no exception. As always professionally packed and ready to plant. I would recommend Geraniums to any Gardner and Crocus too.

Front of border. Attractive foliage, good flowers, but very shy to flower at first unlike most geraniums. Frustrating if you need colour first year.

I bought geranium sabani blue last year and planted it in mid summer. It bloomed for the first time this year and was beautiful. However, once the leaves faded it began to die back and cutting faded blooms and stalks did not revive it. It now looks as dead as a door nail! It was planted in quite a shady spot where it only got some dappled sunlight. It was next to another geranium (Waldegrave pink) which flowers all over the place in my garden and is undaunted by shade. I was regularly feeding my plants with high potash fertilizer and I am wondering whether I killed the plant by giving too strong a dose. The soil is well drained - other plants in the same area are camelia, strawberry (pink flowers rather than the fruits), day lillies. Would it be possible for you to give me some tips about how to grow this plant and would you have any idea why it might have died? Perhaps it needed a sunnier spot.

Hello there Sorry to hear about your Geranium Sabini. I don't know why your plant has died, there could be a number of reasons, possibly too much fertiliser, or there could be too much competition from other plants growing around it, or maybe like a lot of plants it suffered in the hot dry weather we had earlier this year. Generally this geranium is easy to grow, so maybe try it again in a different position in the garden. Sorry I can't help nmore this time.

Plant advice for 2 new beds please Hello, I need some help to decide which plants to put into two new areas please:- 1: A semi-circle flash bed at the front of the house, size approx 2m x 0.80m and 0.80m deep. I thought about the 3 following options for a small tree/bush in the middle:- a) Magnolia soulangeana, but I was worried about the size that it could grow to and possible problems with roots etc . Will it stay small if the size of the container is used to restrict it? b) Witch Hazel (Hamamelis intermediana 'Diane'). Will it spread too much? I think this is very pretty. c) Corylus avellana 'contorta' Then I also need to think about ground cover plants to help suppress weeds. I am only interested in fully hardy, easy to look after plants, could be with some flowers or coloured leaves. 2:- A thin path between neighbours (approx 2m x 0.40). My idea is to plant bamboo. I would love a modern thin run of bamboo with ground cover. My worry is which bamboos to use. I love the yellow, like Phyllostychys aureocaulis (Golden Grove) but not sure if it is strong enough as it could be exposed to some wind. I bought from you a couple of years ago the Phyllostychys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' which I planted in pots but it died this year. I see on your website some other bamboos but I don't like them as much as their canes seems less exposed and have a lot more foliage. But possibly these would be a better alternative... ...? For the ground cover I as thinking of Ophiopogen nigrescen. Do you think these plants will be suitable, or have you any other suggestions? Thank you for your help, Galia

Hello Galia, All of the taller shrubs you mentioned for the semi-circular bed will get quite large, but their growth will be restricted (both in height and spread) if they are kept in a pot where their roots are restricted. For groundcover you could opt for any of the following:- Bergenia http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.bergenia/ Helleborus http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.helleborus/ Heuchera http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.heuchera/ Epimedium http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.epimedium/ Geranium http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.geranium/ Erica http://www.crocus.co.uk/search/_/search.erica/ As for the bamboos, even the most well behaved one (Fargesia murieliae) will spread to around 1.5m across so you should keep this in mind when planting it in such a confined space. Perhaps a better option would be one of our hedging plants, which can be cut back hard against the wall. Taxus http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/shrubs/trees/hedging/conifer/bigger-trees/best-in-very-large-gardens-parks/taxus-baccata-/classid.6230/ or Ligustrum http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/shrubs/hedging/ligustrum-ovalifolium-/classid.4093/ would be good options. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
