Pelargonium named for the Chairman

Richard Upward
Double salmon pink flowers on a dwarf growing plant.  Green and cream bi-coloured leaves.   Hybridised by Steve Pollard and introduced in 2008, so fairly new.

Steve named his plant  for the late Richard Upward who was a well respected Chairman of Farnborough Fuchsia & Pelargonium Society for many years.

A strange thing happens in my garden each autumn.  My greenhouses shrink.  In fact, they get even smaller by spring.  I wonder why this is?

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