Time for dividing. Do not let divisions dry out completely. Give them a seaweed tonic to help them recover. It is better not to fertilise divisions for 6 weeks.
Continue or start dividing if you haven’t already done so. Divide every one to two years.
Check moisture. Keep a look out for pests and diseases. Mulch gerberas grown in the garden. Keep away from the crown.
Hot months require attention to water, shade and mulch.
