Hi, my sister bought this deep green geranium which has fury leaves that smell of peppermint. According to the lady who sold it is has small white flower courts. Any idea what variety it may be. Its likely to be an indoor one as it was bought in Sweden. I have a photo but can't figure out how to upload that from my phone.

has anyone tried to grow this from seeds? A friend of mine brought me two seeds from Tenerife. the little info i have found indicates that I should soak the seed for some days but then the advice forks. Some say I should then keep it in the fridge whilst others to plant it. 

the seeds didn't come with instructions.

Weed or not a weed

The whole patch is a mix of wild strawberries, Greek oregano and creeping buttercups plus the odd thing I've actually planted. The left one sadly looks more like willowherb. I rather it would be what nutcutlet suggested.

Tetley, it does look like vinca which I rue that I introduced into my garden but the leaves are not rubbery.

Nutcutlet I think you might be right. I have taken seeds of that last year and planted them but totally forgotten about it.

I know they are a bigger to get rid of.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I've done some seeding of Tomatoes, beans, cucumber, peppers, cucamelons and courgettes. Hopefully some of it will grow. Half of them are sitting on one of my radiators waiting to germinate.
