The first tiny flower on ‘Attar of Roses’ 💕 I’m never usually excited by the flowers as I bought the plant for its scented leaves, but the fact that I’ve managed to successfully overwinter it is truly amazing! #pelargonium #attarofroses #overwintered #greenhouse #upclose #macro #pink

Wonderful! I'm never any good at overwintering plants. They never enjoy the greenhouse as it was built in a shady part of the garden, so consequently too damp & cold for most plants 😔

I’m usually rubbish at overwintering, Karen, as our greenhouse isn’t heated. I think the mild winter definitely did me a favour this year! @prettylittleimagez

I have never been able to overwinter #pelargoniums before but this year every one of mine have survived and are thriving! When you rub the leaves of #attarofroses it smells like Turkish Delight 💕💕 #greenhouse #overwinter #pelargonium-overwinter #mygardentoday 11/05/2019

Although the small flowers are very pretty I grow this #pelargonium for its scented leaves. They have a gorgeous Turkish Delight fragrance which is even more evident when you rub the leaves. #scentedfoliage #pinkflowers #containergarden

The flowers aren't spectacular but the leaves, when rubbed, give off the most amazing scent of Turkish Delight! My all time favourite #pelargonium and one I grow year after year! #geranium #pinkflowers #scentedleaves #mygardentoday
