Gerbera Plants Growing Guide

Echinacea Plant - Supreme Cantaloupe [238771]

On Receipt

Remove Your Gerbera plants from the packaging straight away. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. Pot individually, into a 10-13cm (4-5in) pot using a good quality potting compost.

Care of the plants

Gerberas are excellent house plants and can be grown on a window sill, avoiding direct sunlight or in a greenhouse or conservatory at a minimum temperature of 10˚C (50˚F) to establish the plants.

Ventilate freely on warm sunny days. During the growing season keep the plants well watered but not over wet, applying a balanced liquid feed every four weeks. Your Gerbera plants can be moved out doors at the end of May/early June, once the risk of frosts have passed.

Gerbera plants will make a colourful addition to the patio table and containers. Remove faded flowers to encourage further production. The plants are not hardy and should be over-wintered indoors or in greenhouse at a minimum temperature of 5˚C (41˚F). Gerberas have a long vase life and make excellent cut flowers.
