Woottens of Wenhaston Pelargonium Open Day
Woottens of Wenhaston Pelargonium Open Day is held on the first Saturday in July
Our annual Pelargonium Day is becoming more and more popular as this wonderful South African perennials regain their notoriety in the plant world. We collect and preserve over 200 different forms of Pelargonium (or scented Geranium) including many incredibly rare species forms. Each year we open the nursery to allow our customers to view our collection and buy plants. On the day advice and demonstrations are given by our expert grower, Julie Nicholas. It is a wonderful day for those of us that appreciate the ‘true’ Pelargonium and all its attributes.
Our collection of Pelargoniums is intensely personal. We abhor the violent colours of most modern Pelargoniums and specialise in the species and scented leaf varieties. All our Pelargoniums are raised at the nursery from cuttings by our grower Julie Nicholas and will flower from April – October. Whilst the Pelargonium is a tender perennial it can be easily overwintered and are wonderful plants for pots in the summer as they are drought tolerant and incredibly long flowering.
Our collection of over 200 plants will be on view including access to our private propagation tunnel. Julie will be giving propagation demonstrations and vital over wintering care. Come and join to celebrate one of the most diverse genus in the plant world and make sure to bring along your best senses as the scented leaf varieties will truly amaze them!
Pelargonium Workshop – Saturday 7th July from 10am-1pm
On the same day we run our popular Pelargonium Course from 10am-1pm.
