    About the Geum Tempo Rose

    Care Instructions

    Geum prefer a well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. If on a very heavy clay soil, it is best to add some drainage in the form of gravel, bark or other materials to open the soil up.
    Watering Geum is fairly straight forward. During the growing season, keep the compost moist, but not too wet at any point. Geum is tolerant of many watering conditions, but can suffer from root rot if sat wet.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Geum prefers a location which gets partial to full light, although they will cope with some shade. You will get more flowers if located in a sunny spot. It is best to keep the plant away from strong winds, which can damage the blooms

    Height and Spread

    Grows 30-40cm in height and will spreads 20-30cm

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - Geum can be fed in early spring with a balanced feed, slow release is ideal, as it will provide nutrients through the growing season and help support the flowers. If needed, topping up with liquid feed can be done. Aim to give a balanced feed, as too much nitrogen can lead to excess leaves and less flowers.

    Pruning - Dead heading the flowers will help tidy the plant up, as well as encourage more to follow. Cut back the plant after flowering by half, this helps encourage fresh growth for the following year.

    Propagation - The best way to gain more plants is through division. This can be done to mature plants around 3 years old. Division is best in early spring, or late summer into the autumn.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    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.
