Geranium Problems

Posted: 11/10/2015 at 18:38

I've recently cut back a whole bunch of pelargoniums hard back.  Two to clean them up and then to take up less space.  

Watering should be minimal now.  clean the pots, plants and compost of all dead and decaying leaves and debris that can harbour pests and diseases.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Revamped border is just about there now

Moonshine can grow that tall.......there are some less vigorous varieties.  I cut off flowered stems to the base.  I dont mulch or feed and growth is more sturdy. Pretty much evergreen here

Hormone rooting powder

 Yes, it does go off aparently.  I buy fresh ....tip, never buy used hormone powder ....every year.  I guess its expensive really cos I only use it on agastaches and things that need a little help.  you can use too much too so you ned to tap off the excess

Wonky, I always knew toads were aggressive. 

those burns look nasty though 

someone I knew years back had schizophrenia or similar and whenever she saw a plate of spaghetti was convinced it was a plate of worms.  She actually ate it too to try and "cure" herself
