Buy Pelargonium 'Attar of Roses' scented-leaved pelargoniums: The leaves smell of roses when touched

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: May to November
  • Hardiness: tender

    You will want to gently run your hands over the leaves of this tender perennial all the time, as this will help release their delicious rose-like scent. The pale lavender-pink flowers, which appear on the upright stems for months on end from late spring, are an added bonus and are useful for cutting.

  • Garden care: Pot up your pelargoniums, but only place them outside in the garden after the risk of frost has passed. Remove the spent flowers as they fade, and keep them well fed using a dilute solution of a high-potash liquid fertiliser (Tomorite is ideal) at regular intervals. If you want to keep them over the winter, move them to a frost free environment and avoid overwatering during the colder months.

Lovely scent

Beautiful fragrant leaves, I have it my my door. Flowers aren't impressive but the leaves are wonderful. Not hardy. Will buy again.

A lot of leaf and not interesting flowers

Unless you were going to be constantly brushing against this pelargonium I can't see it has anything to recommend it. The fragrance is lovely but it has lots of dull leaves and the flowers are an insipid pink.

Posh Pelargoniums

These South African plants, often called geraniums, will provide colour for many months with little or no maintenance. Just feed them and deadhead them and they will shine throughout summer and autumn. You can mass them together in a trough, or grow them

Make a 'tussie-mussie' or posy of flowers

On the whole, I’m a pretty rugged sort of person. A disproportionate amount of my gardening time seems to be spent hammering scaffold boards together, or powering my way through waist high weeds at the business end of a petrol strimmer, or hauling improba
