Regal Pelargonium 'Hindoo' and a frosty night.


"Hindoo" Regal pelargoniumAdd caption
The Regal Pelargonium ‘Hindoo’ was introduced by a Mr. Tomkins of Australia in 1952.  The flowers are a bright maroon red with darker veining  and  slight dark blotch to the upper petals. 

We had our first hard frost on Friday night, and Saturday was a really cold day.  I do have the bubble wrap up inside the greenhouse, but only on the sides as the weather has been so mild.  This is to allow as much light as possible to the plants.  When the  frost was forecast I covered over the plants with fleece and the plants looked quite happy when I removed it.   Once we start to get to the really cold  nights I will put bubble wrap up in the top of the greenhouses, and will need to have heaters on at night.
