The Harrogate Spring flower show had some fabulous vendor stalls which included some pelargonium specialists. I got 3 new plants, P Renate parsley, P cordifolium & P sidoides. Happy now Smiling

You'll have to post photos of them! I'm not familiar with the P. Renate parsley, but looked it up and absolutely love the look. The cordifolium is very pretty, too. I have a P. sidoides, it's one of the varieties I'm hoping survived my try at overwintering in the basement. Congratulations on your find! It's so hard to find any pelargoniums that are out of the ordinary!

All my plants plus the P Candy Dancer I got earlier are doing really well and all are producing flower buds. The Candy Dancer is also producing a lot of new growth on the surface of the compost.
Should I be fertilising the plants now?

Oh nice! New plants! I have the P. sidoides and it is in blooming mode now, reminds me the hotter summer conditions are almost at hand.

Sue, I would think a little fertilizer would probably be a good thing now.
Especially for plants growing in containers. A local nursery man told me many years ago to give container grown plants regular light feedings throughout the growing season.
I live in a hot summer climate, and have to water containers every 1to 2 days, so a lot of nutrients get washed out of the soil.
If you're ever in doubt, call a local nursery.
Good luck with your beautiful plants, they sound cool!
I envy your climate! You can grow plants there that I can only dream of!
Sighing!
