|"Bold Carnival" - Basic Zonal Pelargonium|
April has been a month when plants have been arriving through the post and personally delivered. . Earlier in the year I ordered from both Scented Geraniums of Northern Ireland and Fibrex Nurseries, Nr. Straford-upon-Avon. Both these nurseries plants arrived in the same week, both well packaged and are now growing well in the greenhouse.
Another package with a plant inside arrived last week – a complete surprise. I found a beautifully packaged zonartic from Liga in Ireland. The plant is not yet named – there is a competition to find it’s name, which is all very exciting. Thank you so much Liga – I will love it and treasure it. I am looking forward to knowing its name when it is decided. I’ll keep you posted. Liga has a blog page which has her wonderful photographs of pelargoniums. She also runs a dedicated Facebok Group - Pelargoniums. At home and garden, species and varieties - for pelargonium enthusiasts
|Surprise Zonartic from Liga|
Before Liga’s surprise parcel arrived, I had a wonderful afternoon with Anne, a Swedish pelargonium enthusiast who was over here on a visit to stay with her cousin Marika, also Swedish but living here in the UK. Anne very kindly brought me two zonartics and a Stellar. These are Vilda Tilda, Lara Marjorie and Sune Tryg. Thank you so much Anne. It was a lovely afternoon chatting’pelargonium’, taking a few cuttings for her to take home. I will update you on all these new varieties.
