Easy to grow Pelargoniums…

As per usual, our Pelargoniums are in high demand this season understandably so… We have a very wide range of Pelargonium species from windowsill miniatures to Zonals such as Caroline Schmidt that can grow up to 3ft. So there is a variety for just about anyone.


Our ever growing range has a few new members to welcome this year starting with 2 very rare and unique species, 

Triste & Fulgidum which are real eye catches with their foliage and vivid flower colours,though we ask for patience if ordering Triste as it may be in short supply as we grow to supply demand.

Pelargoniums are well known for their pungent scent and this

year we have newly listed a few more variaties to our scented leaf collection. 

Charity, has a most eye-catching lime green foliage with a lovely sweet smell. We also introduce the lemon scented Radula which is a must for that “something different to your neighbours” appeal.


For the border or garden beds, we have the visually striking

Orange Splash. As the name suggests it is a lovely shade of orange with speckled flowers, it really is quite spectacular.  If you’re a lover of the speckled flowers then check out Fleetlands which makes its debut appearance in our ever expanding Stellar range it’s a real stunner.

Dolly Varden is a pretty tri-coloured leaf which was very popular in

the Victorian ere, with the grand houses that needed something special in their gardens. It’s bright scarlet red flowers makes a showy display and good bushy growth compliments the look, and if that is not enough then the pièces de résistance would be Australian Bute a stunning regal variety with it’s rich blooms.

And then there is our very own, brand new Angel variety being launched this year.  Treasured Memories, named in memory of

Emma’s father, Tim Wilson, who after being diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer in April 2016 died 7 months later.  This brand new angel sport was spotted in flower on our stock benches several years ago, since then it has been tested to ensure stability and has proved to be a reliable grower and makes a nice bushy plant.  What’s more for every plant sold we will be donating 25% to the 2 cancer charities that helped Emma’s father in his final weeks. Cancer is something we are all far to aware of, and we are proud to be able to offer this brand new variety as fitting tribute to all those who have / are being touched by Cancer and may

Treasured Memories flourish for you and your loved ones.

Growing Pelargoniums successfully requires a  bit of TLC, we advise feeding them from the start of the season and keep them moist but not waterlogged. It is a good idea to pinch the tips out when planting them up to encourage a more bushy growth rather then a leggy plant. Remove any stems with old faded flowers from the main plant which will encourage new flowers to grow. Remember to keep these precious plants free from frost as if the stems freeze, they will not recover.
