Trying to identify a geranium

Dear all,

i have seen a geranium which is popular as ground cover. It's low to the ground spread like a weed, the flowers are a pinkish purple and the leaves light mid green. I keep buying geraniums in the hope that I've got the right one and although I have a garden full of lovely geraniums....I still don't have the ground cover one I want. Any ideas ????

Morning all, 

i spent yesterday in the garden from 9 till 5. So today I am trying to recover. Yoga this morning and a long dog walk then on my I Pad and then a snooze on the sofa, all punctuated with mugs of tea 

How long until my philadelphus/ mock orange flowers?

What a wonderful thread with so many great messages. So far so good. I have not had to kill a single slug this year as my borders are now bursting with happy healthy Astrantias, geraniums and penstemons, salvias, catmint, roses and my favourite plant of all...lavender. It is looking classy and very English. Hedgehog family are thriving too. Now I am very cautiously going to plant climbing beans out....

Very large garden - where to start

Hello all my lovely gardening folks.

I've tried everything. nematodes pellets beer the lot. 

last year my garden was destroyed by slugs. My lovingly nurtured dahlias were eaten to the ground in one night. No delphiniums survived. Green brands disappeared while I was at work one day. In short I came to a point of deciding to give up gardening.....I actually cried over the dahlias....and I don't cry very often. This year I have decided to have one more go. 

I have compiled a list of plants slugs don't like. I have bought hardy geraniums, nepeta, salvia, astrantias, sangiusorba and penstemons, lavender, poppies, etc etc daisies.... I have over 50 very small tender plants to plant out today ; )))) 

dont know why I'm sharing this, just want to let someone know.

Pray for me....
