This is a new plant for me this year - I spotted Pelargonium trifidum
growing in a hanging pot at Woottens of Wenhaston Nursery when I was there in June. It was most attractive and I could not resist one for myself! This is a tuberous-rooted species from the eastern region of Cape Province in South Africa. The leaves, which are trifoliate, have a pungent scent when touched, some find it unpleasant, but I have not found it so. The flowers are a delicate cream colour with veining on the top two petals, and always three to each stem.

It's a busy week this week - we will be away on Friday for two weeks, so there is much to do both indoors, in the garden and in the greenhouse. I am beginning to panic about leaving the greenhouses!
