The Pelargonium Register
lists this as being a cross between “Mabel Grey” and, presumably, an unknown
scented pelargonium. The flowers are
mauve with dark feathering on the top petals.
The serrated leaves of lime green colour have a strong lemon scent. Introduced in the UK before 1979 by Bowie.
We are still experiencing
very mild weather here in the South East of the UK. It is extremely windy and damp. We all feel for the folk up in the North of
England and Scotland experiencing flood after flood. I cannot imagine how it must be for them. I can remember how I felt when we had our own
garden floods a couple of years ago – I cannot imagine how it must be for your
home to be flooded – not once, but three times.
Oh, I do hope these storms are over soon so they can get back to
I am keeping a sharp eye out in the
greenhouses for aphids, having found clusters of greenfly on the primulas planted
in an outside window box. The botrytus seems to
have gone – I am just finding the odd plant with a grey looking leaf – but I am
being vigilant in removing all yellowing leaves.
The greenhouses are very
green looking g at this time of year, but there are a few with flowers and I
thought you would like to see what is out just now
