As I was cutting back some of my Geraniums in the garden at home this evening, I put some of the last stragglers in an enamel mug on the garden table. Like many genus of plants there is plenty variation in geraniums, be it height of the plants, leaf shape, flower size and colour or growing conditions. These lovely pastel coloured plants are tough and cope with a variety of conditions, so are ideal for my high exposed garden here at home and at the nursery.

when the garden is full of Geraniums
|As well as looking pretty in the garden, Geraniums are loved by bees, so it is worth planting as many as possible to attract these important wee creatures|
Bees love Geraniums
