It is very important to plant as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the plastic bags. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Soak bare-root perennials in water for a few hours before planting.
Space 18-24" apart, with the growing tips just under the soil surface. Hardy Geraniums can take some shade but are best when they receive sun for most of the day. Plant in ordinary, well-drained soil, in full sun to partial shade. In hotter areas, plant in partial shade.
Divide in spring or fall when necessary. Grows 12-24" tall, spreading 18-36", depending on variety.
