We are accustomed to seeing Gerberas in flower shops and as dwarf potted plants at greenhouses and mass market retailers, but we seldom have a chance to grow true cutting strains. Gro 'n Sell has just informed me that they have a number of varieties on hand and ready to ship immediately.
These are either 36 or 25 cell half-trays, and 4 half-trays fit in a standard box. This is a different size than anything we have offered, so keep in mind that you can order up to 4 half trays per box.
Gerberas are not winter hardy but they are cold tolerant. We have a long cultural document from the growers of this line of Gerberas that we would be happy to share with you. (I can't seem to embed a link here, but I tried!) Many grow them in pots. Most commercial growers use the same plants for several years, cycling them in and out of production.
I'm not an expert on this crop, but I do get requests for plants with frequency, so if you've been waiting, and can keep them from freezing in winter, this may be your chance!
The 36 and 25 cell plants are quite similar in size. The top growth is essentially identical, but the root mass is slightly larger on the 25 cell option. Both will establish quickly.
These are produced through tissue culture and are patented, both of which increase the price, but considering the fact that you could produce dozens or even hundreds of stems per plant throughout their lives, they may be a good investment for some. Again, do your research. I'm not much help this time.
These will be available for the rest of August, or until they sell out, and will ship within a week of ordering.
