Woottens of Wenhaston Pelargonium
Open Day 2023 Date TBC
Due to plant availability we won’t be running a full Pelargonium Day this year, however on the morning of Saturday 8th October the Pelargonium Collection will be open for viewing and our expert grower will be on hand from 10am-1pm giving advice. There will be a small selection of plants for sale, but not the full range we would hope to have to run a full day. Do pop down and see us, and you can always pre-order certain varieties for 2023.
However we will be running a Pelargonium Workshop on Saturday 8th October 1pm-5pm
The focus of this particular workshop will be on Pelargonium winter care and propagation.
We will be looking at how to successfully overwinter Pelargoniums, hybrids and species, plus identifying those hardier than others.
Propagation techniques including cuttings, tubers and seed. With a chance to ‘have a go’ at taking cuttings and take home your own little plants to grow on.
There will also be a brief history of the plant and all the different types available plus detailed information to take home.
The workshop is aimed at a beginner to intermediate level
and costs £50 per person. Including refreshments.

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!
