Latest and last addition for this season...

Got them on Thursday this week,but was to busy to boast...:)  
   Went to knitting and stitching show in Dublin(my an other hobby-knitting/crocheting ) then Halloweens with all trick and treating :) Very busy holidays i say.
  So my latest addition are Pelargoniu caffrum and P.browkeri,they were on my 'must have' .I was looking for seeds of them for ages,got caffrum seeds,but didn't get any seedling,,i think was bit to hot,so at end decided that i better just order plants.And there they are :

Some seeds germinated what i sowed 2 weeks ago,Weather still warm,good for me.
 Have very good week you all!
  p.s. some photos of pelargoniums from Helen Dillon's  garden,glasshouse(my favorite place),if you plan trip to Ireland next summer,visit it,you won't be sorry at all.

Tidy up time.

Busy in polytunnel last couple weeks,cleaning,moving plants form glasshouse,making room for tender plants who were all summer in pots outside,some were planted in ground too.They are still there,weather still is very mild for autumn in Ireland,feels like this time it is on my side.
  Some of little seedlings of species pelargoniums woke up after summer dormancy,nice,i was afraid that they won't ,because they were so small then.
There some photos of this year sowed plants.
 Pelargonium dolomiticum,,yesterdays discovery,,it growing flower stem :)

 Pelargonium crithmifolium.
 Pelargonium incrassatum
 Pelargonium campestre
 And pelargonium australe,very fragile leaves,i was re potting it and broke off couple of them.

Miniature fancy leaved stellar pelargonium.I love leaves,but not so fancy about flowering,,not proportional to plant it big flower heads small plant,maybe next year will be better.
