Pelargonium Scented Geranium


Joyce Brobst and Caroline Amidon have been growing and working with 'scented geraniums' for 15 years. Pat Crocker is a culinary herbalist with several cookbooks and herb handbooks to her credit. Their combined expertise is invaluable for cooks, growers, and garden enthusiasts who have fallen under the spell of pelargoniums.

Use this handbook to learn about the many varieties, how to grow and use the floral, spice, citrus, or herb-scented leaves.

These plants accompanied Thomas Jefferson to the White House, enchanted the Victorians, and made it possible for French perfumers to bring their products to a mass market.
