Floral Media - Houseplant of the Month - Regal Pelargonium


Franse geranium


Houseplants are becoming increasingly popular again and green plants are featured more and more in interior magazines and on blogs.

Urban Jungle Bloggers are very much on target with this trend where Igor Josif and Judith de Graaff are doing a great job promoting and encouraging more green plants in the home.

Bonjour chère amie,

Avec l'arrivée du printemps vous devez être très très occupée...
J'aime beaucoup ce petit billet mettant en valeur le Pélargonium.
La photo avec les pots suspendus est très originale. J'aime aussi l'harmonie des couleurs des pots qui s'orchestre magnifiquement bien avec celles des pélargoniums.

❀ Gros bisous ❀

Hi Ingrid,
Plant of the month, I know!
I also like plants in the house, but in the winter I find it difficult to keep them well by reason of the heat and the dry air. In the window I cann't to put anything. Now I have an orchid on the table and a large ficus tree in the middle of the living room.
Have a nice day!

With love,
Gerry

I have not kept pelargoniums for house plants, only in pots in the garden during summer. They were a common sight on sunny windowsills of farmhouses to overwinter
them.
They have come a long way for choice of colour which I appreciate because I always search out a pinky purple variety.

Thank you for all these links, Ingrid. Perhaps I am on trend...I bought a pot with a pretty red ranuncula plant at yesterday's farmers market.

It's very cheery to see as we await tomorrow's beginning of Spring, which will be punctuated with yet another snowfall.

Love the pale pink ones. I saw these on a visit to the local greenhouse the other day. I think I shall return to bring some home. Thanks for the inspiration...
