Product information
The tiny leaves have the characteristic rounded shape, with contrasting bands of maroon. Aw, shucks they're cute! But the power — the thing that tells you spring is coming and gives you hope — is in the smell, that one-of-a-kind geranium fragrance. Even in the dead of winter, those tiny leaves smell like summer on the porch. Many gardeners know about starting geraniums from cuttings. It's a great way to share treasured plants, and it feels thrifty. And gardeners love things that are thrifty. But if you start plants from seed, you get to choose from a range of colors: bright red, scarlet, bicolors, orange-salmon, coral, pink, white and lavender. And instead of feeling thrifty, you feel clever. What You Need Seeds: There is a wide selection available at garden centers and online. The key is to start early: You'll need 12 to 16 weeks to get flowering plants. Some varieties come in to bloom faster than others, so check the seed packets. Pots and soil: Although you can start seeds in any container with good drainage and sterile "potting soil," it's a good idea to start with a multi-cell tray that's designed for seed starting. "We use the GrowEase system and have had almost 100 percent germination," Valerie says. "Of 200 seeds, only two failed to germinate. For potting soil, use a sterile mix, such as Seed Starting Mix. Light: Your seedlings will need light — lots of it. You can get pretty good results in a south-facing window, but it's easier to ensure ideal growing conditions by growing the seedlings under lights. Fertilizer: Choose a water-soluble plant food, such as Plant Health Care for Seedlings/Houseplants. 1. Fill your pots or planting cells with moistened potting soil. The ideal size is about 2-3". Eventually, you will have to "pot up" your seedlings. In other words, you will transplant them to a larger pot once they have about three sets of leaves and the roots have filled the starter pot. Although it might seem wise to start with a larger pot, it's not. Seedlings seem to do better in close quarters. 2. Place one tiny seed in each pot and cover with a thin layer of moistened soil, just enough to cover the seed. Cover the pots with a piece of plastic wrap or — if you're using a seed-starter — put the clear cover on top. 3. Place the whole setup in a place that's warm, with bright, indirect light. Geranium seeds germinate best at 75 degrees F., so consider putting them on top of a refrigerator or using a Heat Mat. If the soil surface gets dry, use a mister to moisten it with water. 4. Watch for germination, which can take as few as three days or as long as four weeks. As soon as you see the first shoots of green, remove the covering and moisten the soil if it looks dry. 5. Move the tiny plants to a place that gets bright light, with temperatures in the 70s during the day and no lower than 60 degrees F. at night. Although you can grow them on a sunny, south-facing window, grow lights are best. Keep the bulbs no more than 6" above the plants, adjusting as they grow. Leave the lights on for 12 to 16 hours a day. 6. Begin fertilization at this stage: once a week with liquid fertilizer that's mixed at half strength. 7. When the plants have three sets of leaves, transplant them to a 3-1/2" to 4" pot. Self-watering Pop Out Pots work well, but you can use anything that's about 4". "This gives the roots more room to grow," Valerie says. "Plus, you get more space between the plants, so air can circulate. Crowded plants are more susceptible to disease." Don't get thrifty by reusing old soil, which can harbor pests and disease. Use fresh potting soil, such as our Transplant Mix, which is sterile and drains freely. Continue fertilizing the seedlings, but mix it at full strength and apply it at the rate recommended on the package. "I like our Plant Health Care fertilizer," Valerie says. 8. When frost-weather arrives, it's time to "harden off" the seedlings. Hardening off is simply acclimating plants to outdoor conditions. Seedlings grown indoors have been coddled — you've been giving them just the right amount of light, moisture and nutrients. Outdoor conditions are more challenging, with fluctuating temperatures and light levels, more variable soil moisture and wind. About a week before you plan to set the seedlings into the garden, start hardening them off. Place them in a protected spot outdoors (partly shaded, out of the wind) for a few hours, bringing them in at night. Gradually, over the course of a week to 10 days, expose them to more and more sunshine and wind.

These Are Really Beautiful Looking Flowers
These are the best Geranium species I have ever had. The seeds were in perfect condition and I planted them as soon as they came. The instructions mentioned should be mandatorily followed. And after three months I see flowers growing all over the trees! The yellow colour is pretty bright and vibrant!

Growing into a pretty hibiscus!
I really like growing plants and gardening, it's like my all time hobby. The seeds were fresh when they arrived and I cleaned them on the day itself. Then I sow them and they started germinating sooner than expected. My plant is growing steadily so far.

Great quality seeds
The seeds came fresh. They are perfect for growing a Goose plant steadily. I soaked seeds in water 24 hours before planting so it really helped me. They germinated quickly because of that soaking thing. This is one of the fastest growing plants in my garden. I'm glad I bought these seeds.

Beautiful flower
Love this Lily flower, it is not crossed. Alstroemeria lily is a very good option, if someone looking for a good color flower on backyard, with almost zero maintainance. All the seeds were in good condition, already germination noticable.

Happy Customer
This is the very first time that I have ordered plants online. But thankfully the plants that I ordered were healthy with no leaves damaged whatsoever. As per instructions.. unboxed them and after watering, kept them out in the sun for a few hours. The plants come with moss on top of the soil to retain the moisture.

Huge butterfly balls
The seeds are of great quality. The seeds of butterfly balls germinated quite fast and the fruits and the flowers that the plant bore are huge and looks awesome in the garden. These are particularly great during Halloween. The butterfly balls like flowers also got hairs on the outside and the green color makes them look like large pumpkins.

Excellent seeds
Excellent seeds! Germinated in just 3 days that too in a fall season. I am happy to have purchased this product. Now my garden is full with a lush green and pink lawn. In just 20 days the grass blades reached the length of 8-9 inches and I had to hasten mowing it. Awesome!
