scented pelargonium seeds?

Does anybody know a source where I can find seeds for scented pelargoniums? I have searched several seed catalogs and could find only zonal geranium seeds.

Hello Claudia,
Is there any particular reason why you wish to purchase seeds rather than plants? Plants would be easier than seeds and you could pre-select your varieties. I have not found any catalogue selling scented pelargonium seeds. You could try searching Chiltern Seeds as they list some rare pelargoniums or try a posting on the 'Seed Saving' or "Plant Propagation" forums.
Best wishes

Hi Claudia
You might find the following search useful"Scented Geraniums or Pelargoniums" James K Sayre. This short article contains some useful information and descriptions of scented Pellies.

Last year I bought scented mixed geranium seeds, I think 10 seeds in the packet, for $3.95, from Park Seed. Only 2 seeds germinated and one survived outside in a pot all summer. I still have this one growing in the house, but not sure of variety as it hasn't bloomed. I plan to try it outside again this spring, but think buying plants is easier and you can choose your variety. Good luck!
