A popular bedding plant that also looks great in a hanging basket, the Ivy leaf geranium is a trailing plant often found in traditional cottage gardens. These plants are easy to grow, well scented and colourful. Often also used as houseplants the geranium has simple petals that grow in clumps on tall stems. The petals and the ruffled leaves will trail from any hanging basket or planter to create vertical interest in any space. The petals of this geranium are pink and will bring interest into any space in the garden. Best planted in the front or middle of the border this plant will also be effective in a hanging basket where its leaves and flowers can cascade to add vertical interest. Plant your geranium in a well-draining, sandy soil in a partially shaded area with morning sun that is sheltered from harsh, cold winds.

Water your geraniums thoroughly and deeply once every fortnight. To avoid root rot, let the soil dry out before rewatering. A soaker hose is a great way to water your begonias if you have one. Plants in a container need more regular watering, and if the pot is well-draining you can allow less time between watering.

Fertilize your geranium every two to three weeks in the summer with half-strength liquid fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing in the winter.

Geraniums don't require pruning, but regular deadheading can help prevent disease and increase flowering. Pinch off the entire flower stalk after the flowers fade and remove dry leaves from the plants
