    About the Scented Geranium Lara Starshine

    Care Instructions

    Scented Geraniums thrive in, moist, well drained soil. Water thoroughly, but don't water again until a few inches of the soil seems dry. In the winter cut back on watering, but don't let the roots dry out.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Scented Geraniums prefer locations that are full sun, but they tolerate part shade too. Shadier positions can make them more leggy, so may require, pinching back more often.

    Height and Spread

    Lara Starshine grows 30-40cm in height and will spread 30-40cm.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - Scented Geraniums need little feed. They can however, be fed every 2-3 weeks through the growing season to give them a little boost. A water soluble feed is ideal, diluted to 1/2 strength.

    Pruning -Occasional pinching and light pruning will make the plant more bushy. Remove dried leaves. Cut back any leggy growth, this helps stimulate new flower buds for the next year.

    Propagation - Cuttings are the best way to produce more plants, and it also reinvigorates the original plant.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.
