ABOUT

Inhale relax recharge

Scented geraniums are a group of plants that have an amazing range of different fragrances. They have lovely delicate flowers but it is the scented oils in their leaves that make them really special. When you touch or crush a leaf with your fingers and inhale the scent you’ll be able to smell peppermint, rose, pine, citrus or many other fragrances. Plant them next to where you walk or sit and every time you brush past them they will release their wonderful scent. Inhale the scent and concentrate on the fragrance for a calming but invigorating feeling.

There are scented geraniums perfect for large pots, hanging baskets, herb gardens and garden beds.

A FEW FACTS

Scented geranium oils are extracted and used in perfumes, aromatherapy and medicinally.

For the craft minded scented geraniums have many uses in potpourris, herb pillows, sachets and soaps.

Scented geraniums are non toxic and some varieties are used in the kitchen as flavouring in baking and herbal teas. Their leaves and flowers make excellent garnishes.

Scented geraniums are actually Pelargoniums. The genus name  is derived from the Greek word for stork ‘pelargos’ because the seed pod/fruit resembles the head and bill of a stork.

GROWING ADVICE

What do scented geraniums need?

LIGHT
Most scented geraniums prefer sunny to partly shaded areas although some including the peppermint scented geranium prefer a little more shade.

SOIL
Scented geraniums grow well in garden beds or pots and prefer a well drained soil or potting mix with a neutral to slightly acidic pH.

WATER
Water well when first planted but do not over water as scented geraniums don’t like to be kept too wet. Allow the soil to dry out a little in between watering.

PRUNING
To maintain healthy looking bushy plants prune them regularly especially during the warmer months when they are growing quickly.

FERTILISING
Scented geraniums do not need a lot of fertiliser. In fact too much nitrogen may diminish their scent. Fertilise them during their growing periods with a balanced complete fertiliser. Fish emulsion and  seaweed fertilisers are good or you can use a slow release fertiliser applied just  as the weather starts to warm up.
