Scented Pelargoniums

Gail has been building up our stock of scented pelargoniums for a few years and we are now able to sell them by mail order. We prefer to send them out in multiples of three making deliveries more cost effective. The multiples of three can be made up of any of the plants.

They are good houseplants in the winter months and very good performers in pots outside in the summer.

General Information

Most scented pelargoniums originated from South Africa, where they are drought tolerant and like to live in full sun. From late May they grow well in pots and containers in the garden. As mid October approaches they should be moved inside the house, conservatory or greenhouse kept above freezing.

A few are slightly more hardy, but an experience or a watchful eye is necessary to know when to move them under cover.

Scent is emitted from their leaves which have a wide range of shapes and textures. Many have attractived flowers, but they are not very prominent. Trying to indentify their various scents can be an interesting exercise. Our van loaded the night before a plant fair can have a heady effect as we prepare to set off in the morning.
