Pink Perfection

Just a quick post before I head out to the kitchen garden to start some much needed weeding and tidying up.

I love hardy geraniums, such good value, easy to care for and very floriferous.

This geranium sanguineum striatum is one of my favourites; only growing to about 6" tall it spreads about 24" and flowers from end of May until the first frosts. I do remove the seed heads with a pair of scissors - yes, I know, but it's a labour of love - and this keeps the plant tidy and free-flowering. Well worth the effort for such a beauty!
