A new title in the series of gardening books by the same author, which concentrates on geraniums and pelargoniums. Topics ranging from selecting the best site for the plants to propagation and problem solving, are covered, and the book is suitable for beginners and experts alike.
How can one imagine a summer without charming geraniums growing in profusion? Depending on the species (and there are many), this popular flower--whether in iridescent pink, warm red, royal purple, hot orange, cool white, or scented varieties--can look quite natural in a "wild" garden design or perfect in a formal window box or hanging basket. Cultivate them everywhere, using the comprehensive information contained here, which covers everything from soil and siting to propagation and pests. The directory of recommended varieties, filled with remarkable close-ups as well as larger garden photos, gives an overview on each type and its range of species, chosen from around the world. Consider the rich-hued and early-flowering Geranium sylvaticum; alpines, gift of some of the greatest names in the history of botanical exploration; or some of the pelargoniums, related plants in a range of wonderfully gaudy shades. You'll use these striking flowers to maximum effect!
