This third shot was taken looking through the glass into
the shorter of the two houses. As you can see there are some Pelargoniums
now in flower. These flower earlier than the other plants I grow. I
do however stop some of them to make them flower later. (you stop a plant
by pinching out the growing tips of the branches) Using this method you
can have the plants in flower on the dates of the shows in which you want
to enter them.
