I have a yellow one and it has been so lovely all summer and still is. I think I shall look for more next year as they are so good.

Hi little-ann. The lovely Garvinea gerberas should grow perfectly well in borders, although I've only grown them in pots.

To be honest, the temperature of soil in most borders may not drop as low as that in pots, so provided the site doesn't get waterlogged in winter I don't see any reason why they shouldn't flourish.

The last lot of so called hardy gerberas I had, produced one flower in a season and then promptly died.  Waste of money.

What is hardy in Cornwall, is not very often hardy up here. Cannas are hardy in cornwall. If I leave mine out I can wave good bye.

I too was dissapointed with my Gerberas I've not even had a flower this year.
