The AGS (in Sydney) was the International Registry for Pelargonium Cultivar
Names. I believe Jean Llewelyn did a lot of the work until family illness
made it impossible, for her to continue, a few years ago. The AGS published
two instalments of the "Checklist" - up to "H" I think, can't put my hand on
them at the moment. The first part is over 10 years old now. The AGS gave up
the task "recently" and all the material was sent to the RHS in the UK. I
don't know if the RHS has the remaining copies of the Checklist or the AGS.
Does anyone in Australia know? If you don't I will endeavour to find out on
