Perennial Geraniums.

Posted: 28/02/2014 at 19:04

Rozanne is brilliant but I also grow Jolly Bee.  The experts say it is one and the same but I have both and they are different, albeit slightly. 

Tanya rendell is a favourite of mine.....colourful foliage and flowers for months.  Black beauty has to be the best geranium....purple foliage and gentian blue flowers n compact mounds

Hiya folks. Can't believe these storms. ,each one seems to surpass the last.  

Oh! So it's you fairy sending the storms?  Power corrupts y'know. 

Still thinking about Bill.  Puts other things into perspective.

Another dedicated thread. ,picking up a tip or two even though I've grown them for few years now. ,

Mine are currently outside.....for couple of weeks now amd potted up. Mild here ....except for those storms 

dsvid, I usually mix dried manure and fish blood and bone when planting out.  Good?

Hmmmmmm! Stormy here.  I reckon it's as bad as anything we've had so far.  Heavy rain and powerful howling winds and high tides again.  

Hello FORKERS.   Stay safe....this storm is coming your way.  Think I'll leave the sunbathing today 


Perennial Geraniums.

At the risk of upsetting some, Johnsons Blue is a little over rated.  Nice when in flower but it isn't very  lomg flowering and ifs habit is ungainly.  Many of the newer geraniums are so much better .......

Depending on what type exactly but your euphorbia will prob grow 3 to 4' Ashleigh and as much across

Two things Bill.....another lovely thing said by your son.

Secondy, please DO mention your son again esp if it's a comfort to you.  For my young sister I regularly comment about her and tell anecdotes about her to her daughter.  

Enjoy your sons place by the lake Bill
