discover scented leaf pelargonium

delivery months schedule for posting our scented leaf pelargonium jumbo starter plants

here is our anticipated month by month schedule and outline of when we accept orders and when it is anticipated an order will be posted

we grow in excess of 130 named scented leaf pelargonium types and supply jumbo starter plants, not baby plugs. as you will appreciate it does take a few more weeks to grow on a rooted cutting to a larger established jumbo starter plant. in effect, we do the hard work and the size of scented pelargonium plant we supply will get you off to a really good start


whilst waiting for your order to be dispatched please keep in mind that the selection of types in every single order that we receive is different. the possible combinations from 130 named types is endless. we do our best to dispatch as quickly as possible early in the Season and we propagate several thousand cuttings based on an educated and experienced guesstimate. we usually do come very close to getting enough plants ready early but inevitably there will be the occasional order that may have to wait slightly longer. we keep you updated if this is the case.

ultimately, all good things are worth waiting for....
