We are busy taking more cuttings here today at Cramden Nursery. Our stock plant of Pelargonium sidoides was still in flower. Just love these rich purple flowers with their metal grey green foliage, which have a pepery scent to them.
Great to be taking our first batch of cuttings in 2018 here at Cramden nursery.
These little beauties will be ready for potting up in 4-5 weeks time, they will go into 2litre pots and will be ready for the sales benches by the beginning of May.
Yesterday we were taking our ‘Candy Flowers’ range of Decorative Pelargoniums, our firm favourite here on the nursery is ‘Violet’, such rich pretty flowers. Her flowers remind us of an old variety we used to grow “Ashby”. ‘Violet’ is a more compact plant with a lovely bushy growth habit, perfect for pots and container growing. She gets a lot of attention here from all our customers.
Lord Bute is still our best selling decorative Pelargonium here at Cramden Nursery. It is easy to see why, with it’s rich deep purple petals edged in pink. A real wow factor for your patio planters. This variety has been around for years, it was wowing the Victorians back in the 18 century and continues today to be centre of attention here on the nursery. A good strong upright growing variety, best planted in pots. It will flower all summer for you up until the first frosts. A regular feed of a high potash liquid feed will help to keep it’s energy up for continual flowering for you.
