Hello everyone, hope you are all well.....haven't been on the site for a while.....things have been really hectic.   felt I had died and gone to heaven this morning, we bought a bench for our communal gardens yesterday, this morning I sat out there with a cup of coffee and enjoyed listening to and watching the wildlife.  Absolutely priceless.


How to save my geraniums form crawlers eating them

Some thing is eating my beautiful geraniums right up to the top of the plants.  Full of holes......last year I found something like a black and white caterpillar on one of them....must have been alot more......nearly thirty plants were full of holes.  Anyone now how I get rid of them?  A friend suggest I spray the plant with very dilute washing up liquid in a watering can........anyone else heard of this.  Would appreciate some feedback, the garden I look after is for a nursing home. Thanks

Today I feel so happy....

I think there is a similar thread but this is a different problem......I bought some geraniums....alot are doing well but some new ones are getting leaf yellowing......they are all in an enclosed space and not planted in the ground......balcony pots....was wondering if it was iron deficiency....someone suggested too much watering.....they were quite heavy when I bought them and not dryish.
