Some of you might wonder where we grow the pelargoniums. They live in a 10,000 sq. ft. cold greenhouse close to San Francisco Bay. The climate is mild, although we get a small amount of cold damage if the temperatures fall much below freezing. Because the greenhouse is made of glass it can get very hot in the summer. Fortunately pelargoniums don't mind heat, although we need to water them more frequently.
