pelargoniums

The U3A herb group met today to study a selection of plants, some of them widflowers.

We brought along a good selection of books to help with identification. The first plant was a scented leaf Pelargonium with a citrus smell which led us on to discovering information on the uses of this group as  culinary herbs and in aromatherapy. We also looked into the growing conditions necessary to help them thrive. An old copy of the Herbal review contained some interesting articles especially concerning Culpeper's herbaries.
