Geum - Chiloense - Mrs. Bradshaw Seeds

Geum flowers heavily in May and June and will keep on flowering until late summer if the plant is deadheaded. Mrs. Bradshaw is clump-forming and divides easily after the first year. In colder climates, you might need to mulch the plant during the winter. Geum Chiloense is also commonly known as Avens.

Sow Geum - Mrs. Bradshaw Seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before the last frost. Use sterile potting mix and trays. Gently press the seeds into the surface of the soil and barely cover them with soil. Keep the flower seed constantly moist until germination. At the time of transplanting, cut back the seedling to encourage more compact growth. Plant in well-drained, fairly fertile soil. Can take up to two years to start flowering heavily.
