Planting Conditions

Creating a spectacular display with Geum 'Flames of Passion' involves a few planting considerations. Opt for well-drained soil enriched with organic matter, creating an ideal foundation for robust growth. Select a sunny location, ensuring the plants bask in 4-6 hours of sunlight daily to foster vibrant blooms. Space them 12-18 inches apart, promoting proper air circulation and allowing each plant to flourish. Mulch the area for moisture retention and weed suppression. Choose the opportune times of early Spring or Autumn for planting, fostering optimal establishment. These thoughtful planting conditions lay the groundwork for a thriving garden addition.

Watering & Feeding

Maintaining the flourishing beauty of Geum 'Flames of Passion' demands careful attention to moisture levels. Regular, focused watering, especially during dry spells, is key to ensuring consistently moist but not waterlogged soil. Direct watering at the base to prevent foliage moisture, reducing the risk of potential diseases. While Geum varieties appreciate fertile soil, their feeding requirements are generally modest. Applying a balanced, slow-release fertiliser in early Spring provides ample nutrients for healthy growth and blooming. However, restraint is advised to avoid excessive fertilisation, ensuring a well-balanced approach to watering and modest feeding for a vibrant and prolific garden display.

General Care

Ensuring the thriving health of Geum 'Flames of Passion' involves some diligent general care. Regular monitoring for potential pests, such as aphids and slugs, is paramount to prevent any adverse impact on the plant. Deadheading spent blooms promotes continuous flowering and curtails self-seeding tendencies. Occasional pruning post-blooming season enhances overall plant vigour and shape. Vigilance for signs of diseases like powdery mildew is crucial, with prompt addressing if detected. Adequate spacing fosters air circulation, mitigating potential fungal issues. With these considerations, this Geum variety typically demands minimal care, offering a vibrant and healthy garden display of its passionate blooms.
