Introduction

 

The purpose of  The Geraniaceae Group is to promote knowledge of the species of Geraniaceae. Our functions include annual meetings, a specialist book list, the seed exchange and a large slide library.

This Group was formed in 1981 by Richard Soar, Diana Griffiths, and Richard Clifton.

We aim to bring together as many people as possible who are interested in the species ( and primary, or inter-species hybrids) of all the Geraniaceae, especially core genera Erodium, Geranium, Pelargonium and Monsonia & Sarcocaulon; to encourage interest in growing plants, and also to encourage the exchange of information between members.

The Group Newsletter

The Group newsletter, which all members receive four times in their subscription year, is the main means by which members exchange and receive information. All members are encouraged to participate, with articles, photos, or just short notes either to the Group newsletter or to this website. Photos are preferred for the News but generally cannot be returned; slides can be returned if not for donation to the Slide Library. Observations on cultivation, propagation, notes on habitats, climate, soils, pests, reports of meetings, conventions, and research relating to the Geraniaceae that would be of interest to the members, all are very much wanted for  the News or, if technical, our Associates Notes. We very much rely on the members to keep the newsletter full and interesting!

Select any of the years to have a look at contents.
