Princess Alexandra - a bi-coloured zonal - and Farnborough Pelargonium Show

"Princess Alexandra" - bi-coloured zonal pelargonium
This week’s pelargonium is the bi-coloured zonal, Princess Alexandra.  A stunning coloured double flower of brightest pink which contracts well against the green leaves with a white zone.   Princess Alexandra was introduced by Clifton’s Nursery in 1982.

Leaves - "Princess Alexandra"

Last Saturday was the Annual Pelargonium Show of The Farnborough Fuchsia & Pelargonium Show.

Despite the difficult start, weather-wise, to the year, we were delighted that we had a record number of entries.   This was the first Show we have had in the Hall where we meet each month.   Previously we have booked either another hall, or for the last two years, we have been in a garden centre.    I took a few pictures, and I apologise for the quality – I only had my small camera with me.

Next Sunday - 16th June, will be the 5th NATIONAL SHOW of The Pelargonium & Geranium Society (PAGS).   It would be great if you could come along and support us.  The show will be held at Capel Manor Gardens, Bullsmoor Lane, Enfield, Middlesex, EN1 4RQ (just off Junction 25 of the M25).   You will be sure to see some great plants, and meet and chat to the exhibitors.

    I would like to see the exhibition for yourself and enjoy the beautiful geraniums. Yours.


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