Problem with Geum

Mary Walsh asked 12 years ago

I planted two Geum Mrs Bradshaw plants last summer (the red flowering ones). I got very few flowers but a lot of foliage. The foliage is still strong and vibrant in spite of snow ice etc. Do I cut it back soon and how can I encourage flowers?

Sounds like the soil is rich and the geum responded accordingly. They are likely to flower very well this year. No need to do anything.

If flowering is not good, the site is either shaded or the soil is too rich with manure or compost.
