Hello everyone!

Please can some one tell me what this is? They were in full bloom about a month or so ago in neighbours' front gardens and I'd like some for my border.

Many thanks for your help!

Which geranium?

The flowers are pale pink and the leaves are soft green, very slightly felty, but not glossy.

Is it meant to smell nice? I've decided I don't like the smell. It looks like it could either be Ingwerson or Biokovo. Thank you.

Hi all

Just been out to smell the leaves - it does smell, a bit unpleasant to me though.

Hi everyone

Please can you tell me the name of this geranium? I think I bought it from a plant stall in the market last year, so it just said  geranium. Thank you in advance for your help.

Quick question for the composting experts

Hostafan, it is very humble of you to say that (and I am not joking). Since I started digging the heavy clay soil two years ago, I have come a long way.  I have spent a fortune (in real sense), made unwise plant choices, lost or killed some, moved a few, broke a fork handle (reminds me of the two Ronnies!), bought more, regretted some, and am still browsing online plant shops and drooling over catalogues. My little garden has become my pride, joy and an obsession!

So thanks to the advices received here, I stirred the compost and poured some water in the 'cooking' bin and added some torn up newspaper to the current bin yesterday. Also ordered 5 plugs of the perennial wallflowers as three Bowles Mauves decided not to show up again, moved an Anne Folkard to where Salvia Mainacht failed to come back and really really hoping she survives, as I cut some (could be lots) of her roots  whilst moving.  That's all after breaking my ankle over 3 months ago...

Aha, that's the secret, I always added the cardboard pieces bone-dry.  Thank all you experts for the very useful advice!  I've learnt a lot since I started gardening and am still learning, largely thanks to the knowledgeable people found in this forum
