Overwintering Pelargoniums

Posted: 24/11/2015 at 08:41

When I used to overwinter pelargoniums they always shed leaves and went yellow with the shock of being dug up. I used to cut back, but only lightly. I don't keep them in the greenhouse as it's not heated in winter and gets too cold. The place where I kept them indoors is now full of other stuff and they got a moth with green caterpillers that ate them so I've given up with keeping pelargoniums. But I did it for about 15 years.

So long as you don't put another photo of me on here David, everyone will be fed up with it! Most don't like their photos here, I think, but I've been here before.

Poor dear little squirrelkins, I thought he was hungry

Oh dear Dove, I hope you survive! I suppose there's no chance of getting a small one that you can put in another room afterwards?

I've never sat in a car with heated seats, sounds weird.

Been in paddock sorting out and repairing winter electric fencing. Cold 2°, good to get back indoors.

Strictly is back!

Looks better David. Have copied and pasted it onto my photo folder. But it has Busy-Lizzie written on it!

I seem to have missed this thread, I usually join in with the "Strictly" thread.

I think Jamelia was better in the dance off than Peter. I also think it was the wrong music for the jive and he was wearing the wrong outfit - that perhaps wasn't his fault, but I don't think he was precise enough or had enough to do in the dance. Jamelia has made huge progress and I felt rather sorry for her that she kept being in the dance off when often she wasn't one of the worst two. Couldn't have done much for her confidence so I'm glad she made it to Blackpool.

I think Anita was amazing, but my favourite is Georgia and I like Helen too - but then I loved "The Midwives" so I may be biased!

Poor little squirrel, expect he's hungry.

Snow has stopped, sky is clearing, sun is coming out
