Hardy geraniums

Posted: 22/02/2014 at 14:55

I'd say plug plants are best potted on and left until they have a decent rootball before planting out Barbara. They're hardy Geraniums as opposed to pelargoniums so you shouldn't need to keep them indoors unless they've been grown undercover and are a bit fragile. Find them a sheltered spot outside, near a wall or similar, and just keep an eye on them for now. By the time the weather warms up a bit they'll be bigger, a bit more robust, and ready for the big outdoors 

Just typical!

Mark - that's worthy of Verdun - and praise doesn't come any higher than that! 


What do you call a man who's lost his dog?


You have to get the Scottish vernacular for that one Busy Bee but I'm sure you can work it out!  

Hope you feel better soon.

I'll let you off then 

Did you get some blood, fish and bone 'tickled' in when you were moved?

Can't go far wrong with those choices PPetal 

James Taylor and Joni were top of my collection.  And lots of S&G and Linda Ronstadt. JT's Mud Slide Slim is still my all time favourite album.

Mr Garfunkel could teach those 'singers' of today a thing or two. Like how to hold a note without all that 'twiddling'. 

I sound like my mother now....

One of the advantages of having Sky is getting  the two Arts channels. There are some lovely interviews and concerts on it. There was a great Don McLean one recently. What a lovely man he is.

Maybe you can bribe/reward the children to stone-pick - I understand it was popular with farmers in Norfolk in years gone by - they got the local children to clear their fields ....... apparently they even got time off school to stone-pick ......... I'll get my coat 

Gosh Dove - you Norfolk people know how to live.....

I can't listen to Karen Carpenter without getting teary. Such a waste of a huge talent. A very accomplished drummer too.

Matty - they didn't have Pimms - only coffee. Although with that cold wind down there they could probably have done with something a little stronger 

Glad you're doing fine.
