I've collected seed heads from a Geranium I've cut back. Should these be dried and sown in pots in the Spring?

Help! I'm unable to start a new thread for some unknown reason.  i've tried on my phone and computer, to no avail.  What am I doing wrong?

Garden Rescue - TV Programme

Posted: 16/07/2016 at 12:54

Where have you been, Verdun? Yes, I agree that any gardening programme is a bonus and I am always open to new ideas. Only watched the first of these so far, and I'm afraid the design left me quite cold. I think the brothers are lacking in charisma, but Charlie makes up for them. I understand there has been huge sadness in her life in recent years. I'll continue to watch and hopefully Charlie's designs will be chosen.

Saw a young slowworm when mowing the grass yesterday. He just slowly slithered back into the undergrowth. I've had them in my compost bin on a number of occasions - beautiful creatures.

My new favourite Clematis is 'Belle of Woking'. What Clematis makes you happy?

It isn't a Nelly Moser, Fairygirl, but similar. This Multi blue performed well for me this year.

I love Clematis and they seem to be doing pretty well this year. Unfortunately, I've lost the label of this one - can anyone identify it for me, please?

What is your weather like?

It has now been raining non stop for 17 hours, and it's windy! At least it stayed sunny and dry for a few hours yesterday, and we were able to take a boat on the river with my son and his family. A treat for Father's Day! The forecast doesn't look good and my lovely poppies, roses and tall herbaceous geraniums are flopping!
