Non flowering geraniums this year

Thanks. I really don't know what type it is though as it was here when we got here. The foliage is quite large but a normal darkish green. Seem to think it was a purple flower last year, and was in the same spot.

Oh, right, thanks, I will try that.

They are next to another one that's been fine. It's in sun for part of the day but gradually loses it so is in shade for some too. If that makes sense

Hi

I've got some geraniums which have been in full leaf for some time (most of the - ahem - summer) but no flowers have come or buds. I seem to remember they did flower last year. Two other varieties (one that was already in the garden, and a new one) have both flowered. I don't know what sort it is as it was something we managed to save in this garden when we bought the house.

Just wondered if anyone else had had this problem this year, in case it was something to do with the weather. The leaves all look perfect so not like something eating it, or mouldy or anything. Quite baffled.

Thanks!

yeah, that's what I thought...dig dig dig.

Sorry about the lack of pic. It really didn't resemble much when it got home ...

Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help with identifying a weed that my Dad has in his allotment (in fact many of the allotments in that area do)? It grows about 15 inches tall, and has white flowers. The flowers almost look like they could be a grass 'head' and they are definitely what will fly off and set seed elsewhere. I did have a bit but it wilted between there and home in the heat!

Any ideas on what it is would be gratefully appreciated (and any magical ways of preventing it coming back! We don't use chemicals.)

Thanks!
