Every year we make a special journey to the nursery which holds the national pelargonium collection, to bring you scented-leaved and other special pelargoniums not found in most garden centres – such as Lord Bute, and the scented-leaved Lady Plymouth.

These are normally available from mid/late April; please contact us to check availability which depends on the weather!

You can also find other pelargoniums in Spring/Summer: Angeleye, Caliente and Fischer, to name a few.  Our best-seller is Fischer Velvet Red - a truly luscious deep dark velvet red, that you can over-winter in a greenhouse or indoors.
