Planting Conditions

For successful cultivation of Geum 'Totally Tangerine', select well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. This perennial thrives in areas with partial to full sun exposure, receiving at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily. We suggest planting in garden borders, rock gardens, or perennial beds to enhance your gardens design. Ensure proper spacing of 12-18 inches between plants to allow for adequate air circulation. Whether placed in borders or mixed planting schemes, these conditions create an ideal environment for 'Totally Tangerine' to flourish, providing your garden with its vibrant blooms.

Watering & Feeding

To maintain the health and vitality of Geum 'Totally Tangerine', we suggest adhering to appropriate watering and feeding practices. Ensure regular watering, keeping the soil consistently moist without allowing it to become waterlogged. In warmer periods, increased watering may be necessary to prevent dehydration. While 'Totally Tangerine' is generally adaptable, providing a balanced fertiliser in early Spring aids in robust growth and blooming. However, avoid excessive feeding, as this can lead to leggy growth. Consistent care in watering and modest feeding enhances the overall performance of 'Totally Tangerine', ensuring a prolonged display of its cheerful blooms in your garden landscape.

General Care

General care for Geum 'Totally Tangerine' involves several key considerations for optimal performance. Regular deadheading, the removal of spent flowers, encourages continuous blooming and maintains the plant's tidy appearance. Monitor for pests such as aphids or slugs, which can impact the plant's health. If detected, treat promptly to prevent infestations. Keep an eye out for signs of diseases like powdery mildew, addressing any issues promptly. Allowing adequate spacing of around 12-18 inches apart, promotes proper air circulation, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. While 'Totally Tangerine' is generally resilient, vigilant care contributes to its overall health and longevity in your garden landscape. Incorporating these practices ensures that this perennial not only thrives but also graces your outdoor space with vibrant blooms, enhancing the beauty of your garden.
