Looking Good: Geum ‘Mrs J Bradshaw’

Looking Good: Geum ‘Mrs J Bradshaw’

As the season moves into late spring it’s getting harder to choose a highlight. We have lots of plants looking at their best right now, but this weekend we’ve picked Geum ‘Mrs J Bradshaw’ – we have a sneaky feeling you might be seeing a lot of Geums this year at Chelsea…

Also known as Avens, this low growing hardy perennial sets many beautiful red/orange, semi-double blooms to brighten up your spring border. It’s easy to look after – remove faded flower heads to encourage further flowering, and prune back hard after flowering to rejuvenate the foliage.

It likes full sun or partial shade, in all soil types except dry. Geums flower from late spring through to late summer.
