Sweet Turkish Delight

Turkish Delight
Shown by Ken Abel at the 2007 BPGS Show at Capel Manor, he won a first with this, and it's not hard to see why.  

Turkish Delight is a dwarf zonal with bright green leaves which have a wide brown zone.  The flowers are single and a bright orange-red colour.  Hybridised by Ian Gillam of Vancouver, Canada and introduced in 1984.   

If you want to know how Ken grows his prize winning plants, take a look at his website:

    As far as I am aware Ken did not start showing until 1999 - if he started earlier I am in the dark about it!!


  2. Woops - sorry Babs and Ken, I must have been having a senior moment on Friday night. I've amended the date.


I would love to hear your comments about my "ramblings".
