I adore the lovely smell of Geraniums. Some pelargoniums are grown because they have scented leaves, which can smell of rose, eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon, orange, balsam or apple.
The ones in image above have a beautiful aroma of lemons and their is nothing sweeter than smelling them on a hot Summer’s Day…ah bliss! Wish you could all smell them now!
Did you know?
Scented leaf geraniums (heading image) the leaves can be cut for using in pot pourri, fresh or dried, or to flavour sugars and tisanes. Commercially, extracts of Pelargonium capitatum are used to make geranium oil.
