|"Georgia Peach" - Regal Pelargonium|
“Georgia Peach”. Surely there is no one who cannot love the delicate colour of this Regal Pelargonium? Introduced in the USA by Wm Schmidt in 1969. There are seven pale peach petals, and is said to look particularly good under electric light for cut flower work. Dark green leaves.
Here in the UK the weather has been damp and blustery, but still mild, so no need for heaters yet. I open the greenhouse doors daily, but now we have moved the hour back, it gets darker earlier so the doors are closed mid-afternoon usually. We had one very wet day with heavy rain and high winds, so the doors remained firmly shut for that day.

A miniature gold leaf stellar raised by Brian West and introduced through Sulman’s Nursery. The double flowers are a very pale pink, almost white in colour. This is a cross between Mini Diane and Arctic Glitter.
The following are some photo’s taken at our visit to RHS Gardens, Wisley last weekend.
This is Melasequoia glyptostroboide - a cyprus from Central China -
- which has wonderful and fascinating bark

Nerine's in the Glasshouse - most were nearly over, but I found these looking good.
