Watching Garden Revival Pelergoniams


By Scotkat


They are so pretty think I need to get some of these this year.

Wonder if they would look nice in hanging pots.

Kath, people often use them in hanging pots. The trailing Ivy leaved ones are particularly good for that. Didn't you have red ones in your pots last summer? Pam, As you might know, I have a collection of scented leaved ones. They come in to the 'Regal' section. I bought them last spring from Vernon Geranium nursery as plugs....quite inexpensive and they all grew well bar one. Vernons replaced the poor one very promptly, so I would have to recommend them! :)

No Karen these were not pelargoniums but you are right I did have red geraniums in my wall pots.

I've been growing Regal Pelargoniums on my balcony since returning from Spain 14 years ago. I even had some of the Angel ones a few years ago. My wife bought me three plants when they were very popular some years ago. I kept them growing for 3 or 4 years at least. I'd love to get some more of them!

I first grew Pelargoniums on a balcony in Spain, back then they were the big gawky plants that made a lot of wood - nothing like the modern hybrids we have today!

I have grown Ivy leaf Geraniums for years also as well as the Zonal types. My balcony is never without a few plants of Geraniums & Pelargoniums. I have 3 different variegated Geraniums as well as the usual green leafed ones. I've never grown a scented Geranium as far as I can recall.
