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
