The foliage of this Angel pelargonium has a strong citrus scent, and this acts as a deterrent to mosquitoes. Therefore, this pretty plant should be used near outdoor seating areas, or even to fill windowboxes, where it can perform a really useful job - as well as add colour from May to November.
Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.
- Garden care: 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.
