WW very true.

But when they finally make the premier league, you'll be extra chuffed.

I know what you mean FG - pelargoniums just do look best in the Med, where they grow best too. 

I adore blue hardy geraniums like Brookside (more purply) and Rozanne (almost dark purple blue) and couldnt live without them now

You all have such beautiful plants - I'd love to see more colour plant pics!

It's beautiful FG!

Similar to my Dragon's Heart geranium that is currently scrambling over everything it can

First year of hardy geranium experience for me and it's been a revelation. Bye bye pelargoniums!

Hi Verdun, I saw a White Wonder the other day and it was definitel weird! Quite eye-catching though.

Mouse ears is so sweet - was considering that one maybe for next year as I have way too much stuff this year

Halcyon is a lovely blue hosta - real steely blue, if you know what I mean, but I also love this one:

which is very blue as well.

I have Sum and Substance, mainly because snails leave well alone and it's in the ground, as well as a large blue Halcyon (not as resistant) and 2 smaller bluish ones whose names I forget...

Verdun

So far I've been lucky too and mine are ok but then I did hose everything down with slug nematodes back in late April and I think it has done the trick.

Have also substituted my lethally toxic slug pellets (against snails) for the less harmful ferrous sulphate ones, after reading a post on here
