Grew this from some mixed geranium seeds sent to me by a friend, also have a white one of the same variety and a blue now swapped with Spritzhenry, got loads of different geraniums still trying to identify some, this one is brill though as it seeds around everywhere and if cut back after flowering just keeps flowering, still had flowers in november last year.

You've got green fingers, Simbad (I found it difficult to grow plants from seeds)! This geranium seems to be very easy and vigorous plant to grow. Does it come back every year? (Please forgive me for the silly question!)

I bought one of those little super 7 propogators when we moved here Tommymoo, whole new garden to plant had to save money somehow, its still going strong use it every year just sits on the windowsill, have a greenhouse too to grow things on, always grow far too many plants can't resist pricking loads out,lol.
Yes the geranium comes back every year and all its offspring, lol.

Wow, you have proper equipments!! How nice. You grow far too many plants?! God, you are doing very well, I envy you---! Thank you for the reply about the geranium. I'd like to grow things like this one: perfect for me because I'm Ms Dolittle lol

I'll see if I can get any seed from them Tommymoo and if so will put some in with hellebores, it'll just spread everywhere ;-)

Some in my garden look a bit paler too Dawn seem to get paler as they age, but yes put a picture on,there may be white in there too as I have a white one 'Summer Snow' they're lovely ones seeds around prolificly.

I'll get some pics tomorrow Kathy. White would be nice too, I'm still waiting for alot of others to flower. I never really gave geraniums too much thought but this last couple of years I've really appreciated them. Im pleased they seed around, very useful.
