Hardy geraniums are among the most useful garden plants in British gardens because they are reliable, easy to grow and delicately beautiful. Not to be confused with their more tender South African relations pelargoniums, geraniums do not just belong in pots on conservatories and sunny balconies. Instead, they are hardy perennials that can be planted in sun and semi-shade to give colour for much of the year. This concise, illustrated handbook contains detailed information on all aspects of geranium care, providing invaluable reference for amateur gardeners and experienced growers alike. The straightforward approach to essential techniques, together with advice on tackling pests and other problems, and the directory of recommended varieties, will ensure successful results.
