ive just started with my little grow house, not grown anything from seed apart from my wild flowers which were great, im doing a couple of cutting at the moment jen and looking ok, well still alive so guess there are roots under them lol, im trying to dry out some poppy pods to get the seeds then can give them ago, its all new to me growing your own, so i will see how i go on, never know i may have some plants to share myself one day, fingers crossed :o))

This geranium is wonderful...

i have lots of poppy seeds San, and they are one of the easiest to grow from seed, a really good place to really is a case of throw the seed where you want them to grow and let nature take it's course... if you want me to send you some just send me your postal address on PM. thanks Motinot i am really pleased with this one.

Hi Ange...just wanted to ask about the scale of the flower to the leaf size...are the flowers larger than other geraniums or are the leaves smaller than most

21 Jul, 2009


neither,,,, they are both very small Lori,, the flowers measure approx 1- 1.5cm accross, and the leaves are even smaller... it is a charming little plant, that has spread out nicely since its arrival... but a rather nice neat clump measures approx 4" tall x 12"wide and it is still spreading,, so i would class this as a spreading ground cover variety... and one i would whole hartedly recommend.

Thanks, Angie... will have to look for this one.

24 Jul, 2009


Good luck with finding one... i am very pleased with mine, i am sure you will love it... it has been flowering non stop for about 6 weeks now... and no sign of stopping :D
