Gerbera plants and seeds for sale, gerbera care
Gerbera plants have been hybridised to produce some of the most colourful flowers available for sale, some gerberas with almost a luminous quality. They are widely sold for cut flowers and are eye catching in the garden.
Gerbera plants look like big daisy flowers and modern cultivars have larger flowers and some are double or semi double in form. As cut flowers they are long lasting and have long stems, great for vases.
Plant Care and Growing Conditions
Grown from seed or from divided crowns gerberas like a very well drained soil and should be watered in the morning. This gives time for things to dry out and helps prevent mildew.
Growing them in pots is a great alternative as it helps provide the drainage required.
Gerberas purchased as crowns or in pots need to planted so that the plant is not pushed down into the soil, as this can cause the crown to rot, a common problem.
Seed can be sown in spring and plants placed in the garden as soon as the seedlings have developed. Bothe plants and seeds are available for sale from online suppliers.
A sunny position is essential but protection from strong winds is required as well. Plants can be grown through ‘hoops’ in windy positions.
