A honey of a pelargonium

Honeywood Suzanne
This is a really pretty 'feminine' pelargonium.  Honeywood Suzanne is another dwarf frutetorum type zonal and was hybridised by John Thorpe.   This was released in 1986 by John's own nursery near Reading, Berkshire, which he ran for over 25 years until he retired in 1993.   Honeywood Suzanne has white semi-double flowers with a pink blush to the centre.  It flowers prolifically for most of the year.

John hybridised several pelargoniums with the prefix 'Honeywood'.

After a wet start to the day, we had a warm and sunny afternoon.   The last of the dahlias are now in trays drying off in the greenhouse.  I also moved the sempervivums under the cover of my small plastic covered greenhouse for the winter.   The plastic cover on the greenhouse is fine, but the zip has broken on the roll-down door, but this doesn't matter because they are perfectly hardy, but I need to keep them dry.
