A Perfect Pelargonium

Jip's Freda Burgess

Pictured is Jip's Freda Burgess - a newly introduced basic zonal having semi double bright pink flowers with pale pink to white 'eye', and light green butterfly leaves.   Hybridised by Tony Burgess, one of our new and talented hybridisers.   This beautiful plant is flowering now in the conservatory and has been flowering for most of the summer.  

In the greenhouses today I have watered all the plants.  Watering needs to be done very carefully at this time of year.  It is so easy to over water, and with the cooler nights, botritis and black leg can easily occur.
