Hi, my name is Ken Abel and I live in Carlton Colville, Suffolk in the UK. I have been growing and showing Pelargoniums nationally since 1999.
PLEASE NOTE I DO NOT SELL PLANTS.
All the ideas and tips on my website, relate to how I grow
and exhibit show plants. (they work for me)
Most of the plants you see on this site were grown by me unless stated otherwise.
If you like Hostas check out the new album with photos of plants from my collection.
I hope 2017 will see us have a better growing season for our Pelargoniums and for those like me who exhibit their plants good luck on the show bench.
From January 2014, I started writing the monthly Pelargonium column in the "Garden News".
Issue dates for 2017 31st January; 21st March; 9th May; 1st August.
