Many of us have been moaning about the recent rain but the geraniums in my garden seem to have loved all the wet weather!!! Never have I had such a good display of colour from the geraniums! On holidays abroad I often admire geranium displays in window boxes etc, but this summer my own displays are equally as good. It must be due to the excessive water as we have had hardly any sun!!!!Geraniums dislike being left in waterlogged conditions, so I can only assume the tubs mine are in have adequate drainage to give them their ideal growing conditions. FAMILY Geraniums belong to a family group of plants known as Geraniacea and there are many different ... Read the complete review

~~ Introduction ~~ A popular flowering plant that can be grown outside or indoors. Overall I would say that it's an easy plant to grow for beginners. Geraniums are ideally grown in pots or can be placed effectively in the centre of hanging baskets or in a hanging arrangement depending upon the variety. The plant belongs to the family Geraniacea and there are a multitude of varieties. Nowadays Geraniums come in a variety of colours, but reds and pinks remain the most common. The flowers give a generous bloom during the summer months and often remain in flower well into the autumn. ~~ Pests and Diseases ~~ Some geranium varieties are a favourite food ...

Well, I've spent a small fortune on replacing my Geraniums over the years, only to find the right solution late in the day...tips for others I hope! In late September if you have Geraniums in the garden, lift the plants and re-pot in a mixture of John Innes 3 and Peat compost (they like good drainage). You can take cuttings if you like at this point but you will need rooting compound in a small pot from the garden centre. Take off a shoot with say 6 leaves and trim the rooting end to a 45 degree angle approximately. Dip this end in the rooting compound and then carefully pot it at the edge of a pot of compost mixture. You can put up to 6 shoots like ... Read the complete review

I am a big fan of old fashioned, country-type gardens. I am not a "gardener" as such, so I like to plant shrubs and flowers that are practically zero maintenance. In my previous home, we had cleared an area of the garden to put a shed in place, and was left with a space suitable for a brand new flower bed. The ground was quite stoney, it backed onto a small wall and had full sunshine almost all day. I must add that I prefer plants in the garden that do not need constant watering, morning and evening as I just do not always get the time. Whilst visiting family I admired a lovely colourful display in a corner of their garden and ... Read the complete review

There are many plants you associate with childhood – pansies, forget-me-nots, Californian poppies, but surely all of us have been familiar with geraniums from our earliest years. I remember as a small child being taken to one of my mother’s friends homes, a house just full of geraniums and the distinctive pungent smell sticks in my mind to this day, as does the window-sill laden with the red, white and pink flowering plants. Geraniums are so familiar, it is difficult for many people to see any interest in them. What a shame that is: they need minimal care, last for ages and ages and produce masses of blooms throughout the year. Their leaves are ... Read the complete review
